Visual FoxPro & SQL 7.0
We are starting a company that will focus on money management and electronic
I have been told by several VFPro developers that it is necessary for our
VFPro developers to begin there development with the SQL database (client/server
relationship)rather than creating code in conjunction with DBF (FoxPro Databases).
Their reasoning is that if record sizes become to large - in other words
the company were to grow rather quickly - that the code would have to be
rewritten for SQL 7.0 if a switch were to take place.
I have also been told that VFPro is not the ideal tool for such a company.
If you will, could you give me your feedback on this issue and obstacles
you would forsee in the future if the company were built in the beginning
from FoxPro Databases and a switch were to take place in the future to SQL
