As you probably know, there are no better tools for creating front-ends to MS SQL Server than Visual FoxPro 9.0 and VPME 9.1.
In the last few years, we have been assisting VPME 9.1 users in converting VPME 9.1 applications to use SQL Server data. In fact, there seems to be growing interest in using VPME 9.1 with SQL Server.
During our work in helping VPME 9.1 users make the conversion, we have learned a lot about how to perform the conversion and we have created conversion tools that make the conversion much easier. For example, we now have SQL Server versions of all the system databases that VPME 9.1 puts into an application. We also have remote view databases that allow a VPME 9.1 application to connect to the SQL Server system databases.
One of our top priorities is completing the VPME 9.1 to SQL Server Toolkit for users who want to more easily start using SQL Server with their VPME 9.1 applications. The toolkit would include documentation describing in detail how to make the conversion and tools to make the conversion easier.
Our plan is to begin making pieces of the SQL Server Toolkit available this spring. Be on the lookout for more info on this topic.
