As a program

Use application start something as this (I never did this with dbase)
\\\
Dim p As New System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo()
p.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden
p.FileName = "C:\filename.dbf"
p.UseShellExecute = True
System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(p)
///
As a database have a look first here (Foxpro)

I hope this helps?

See if the following helps:

Dim ConnectionString As String

ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
"Data Source=e:\My Documents\dBase;Extended Properties=dBase IV"
Dim dBaseConnection As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection(ConnectionString )
dBaseConnection.Open()

Dim dBaseCommand As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand("SELECT * FROM MyDBase",
dBaseConnection)
Dim dBaseDataReader As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataReader =
dBaseCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.Sequent ialAccess)

While dBaseDataReader.Read
Console.WriteLine(dBaseDataReader("Column1").ToStr ing)
Console.WriteLine(dBaseDataReader("Column2").ToStr ing)
Console.WriteLine(dBaseDataReader("Column3").ToStr ing)
End While

dBaseConnection.Close()

I have had very good success with ODBC. Set up the database directory under
System DSN. All your connection string has to say is "DSN=XXX"
