Visual FoxPro ODBC Driver

Microsoft Visual FoxPro is a powerful object-oriented environment for database construction and application development. The Microsoft Visual FoxPro ODBC Driver enables applications to open, query, and update data in Visual FoxPro and earlier versions of FoxPro through the Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) interface.

For example, with the Microsoft Visual FoxPro ODBC Driver you can do the following:

  • Use Microsoft Query to query and update Visual FoxPro data from Microsoft Excel worksheets.

  • Create mail-merge letters using Visual FoxPro data with Microsoft Word.

  • Query and update Visual FoxPro views and tables from Microsoft Access.

  • Use Visual FoxPro as the data store for Microsoft Visual Basic, Microsoft Visual C++, and C applications.

    You can use the driver to accomplish many other tasks. The following table lists a few topics to help you get started.
