In Microsoft Access 1.1, 2.0, 7.0, and 97, you can import from, export to, and link (attach) data in FoxPro versions 2.0 and 2.5.


If you point to Get External Data on the File menu, and then click either Import or Link Tables, you can choose FoxPro 2.0 or FoxPro 2.5 from the Data Source list box.

NOTE: In Microsoft Access 1.1 or 2.0, click either Import or Attach Table on the File menu.

When you link (attach) a FoxPro file, you can also associate the appropriate FoxPro index (.idx or .cdx file). The procedure to import, export, and link files is the same for FoxPro files as it is for dBASE and Paradox files.

dBASE and Paradox are manufactured by Borland International, Inc., a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding these products' performance or reliability.
