    DBF Format


    I still have problems converting my mdb file to a dbf file. Is there a way
    that I can do to do this in coding, what I mean in design time, so for the
    user they just have to click a button then it will be converted to dbf already.

    Another thing, how can I convert a certain field in Access which has a data
    type of Double, has two decimal, and should only have 9 whole number. Since
    I cannot do this in access because the double format has 20 whole numbers
    and cannot be modified.

    I need 9.2.

    Thaks in advance

    Your best bet is to take a look at the code for the Visual Data Manager. The project should either
    be installed on your machine or on the VS/VB CD.
