    Louis,

    I'm not sure what you mean - do you mean is VFP easy to learn with a
    DataEase background?

    One thing I know about DataEase is that it's not Y2000 compliant, and VFP6
    is.

    Sorry, what I meant was, how does it compare in speed, robustness, and power.

    Is DataEase for Windows not Y2K compliant? If is not that is a GREAT Plus
    for VFP 6.

    The reason I ask is, a competitor of mine uses DataEase for Windows.

    Thanks,

    Louis

    Louis,

    I found the following statement. My information was about the older
    version which was in use in another department of my previous job.

    "While DataEase (version 4.5 or higher only, versions 4.2 and lower
    WILL have a problem) can handle any time span of 100 years simply by
    changing the start year in the database configuration form, there may
    be calculated fields and procedures where the year is used outside of
    the native date functions. For example, simply trying to renew
    someone's dog license for 3 years will be handled by DataEase with no
    changes. But, creating an Aging Report for receivables sorted by year
    may cause problems."

    One other comment: I'm wondering if DataEase is in the same category
    as MS Access - designed as an end user's database tool. If so, you
    can say that VFP is a developer's tool by comparison. You didn't say
    what type of application you are selling, or whether the customer will
    be customizing it himself or how the application might need to grow in
    the future.
