International settings in SET POINT TO and SET SEPARATOR TO cause the following error to occur in the SQL Server Upsizing Wizard:

To upsize to SQL Server 6.x, please install a SQL Server ODBC driver version 2.05 or later

This error does not occur with the Upsizing wizard that shipped with Visual FoxPro 5.0.


Before running the SQL Server Upsizing Wizard, change the number settings using the following commands:



If the Regional Settings of Microsoft Visual FoxPro are set to "Use System Settings," change the settings in the Number tab of the Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows NT Regional Settings Control Panel to match (without the quotes) the following:

   Decimal symbol: "."
   Digit grouping symbol: ","


Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


Steps to Reproduce Behavior

  1. Run the following program from a program file or the Command window:

          SET POINT TO ","
          SET SEPARATOR TO "."
          DO HOME() + "Wizards\"

    The Upsizing Wizard for SQL Server appears.

  2. Click the database to upsize, then click Next.
  3. Click the appropriate data source and click Next. The SQL Server Login \ dialog box appears.
  4. Enter the appropriate User ID and Password then click OK. The following error appears:

    To upsize to SQL Server 6.x, please install a SQL Server ODBC driver version 2.05 or later

This also happens if the Regional Settings in the Control Panel have the same settings for Point and Separator as listed above in Step 1.

If using the system Regional Settings, as in the second part of the Resolution Section above, the [Tools][Options][Regional] settings of Microsoft Visual FoxPro should have the "Use System Settings" option checked.
