I have this problem of connecting to a fox pro database. The system i am developing was a new one but the client wants to get data from the old database. Right now i am using VB6 as my front end and Ms SQL as m back end database.

You want to use both Foxpro and Sql Server for backend?

Try this Connection String:

Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=c:\MyFolder;Extended Properties=dBASE IV;

I'll try that this one, but i am using a connection that is not System DSN type. Its a sort of I.P. based.
