Microsoft Access .NET?

P: n/a

Is Microsoft developing an Access .NET product? Are they going to revamp the
VBA as they did to VB6?

From what I've read, they are not going to move FoxPro to .NET.

Are there any other database products out there for .NET, or must I code
database applications from scratch in VB.NET? I prefer to use a
database-oriented product rather than a general product like VB or C#.

Very interesting question, I believe there's an awful lot of VBA code
out there. I've heard nothing about it going VBA.net - I wonder
whether the plan is to let the current situation hold until all the
new programming models arrive with Longhorn. They may consider VBA
not worth the effort to port.

No, and that's a real pity. VFP.Net would be fantastic.

Possibly 3rd party solutions, but I'm always dubious about using them
- you just don't know what lifespan they'll have. I've ended up
starting to develop my own data-access classes so I can work they way
I want to work (which VFP has certainly had an influence on).
