FoxPro Application Development
MicroSoft's Visual FoxPro
may no longer be the de facto standard for small and medium
size businesses, it does, however,have a large following who understand
that, for some jobs, no other tool is better.
Not every business needs
a SQL or Oracle database server! Small and medium businesses can
easily use local or network data in a multi-user environment. Use
the right tool for the right job.
If you are undecided

tweaks. These things can be evaluated based on your time requirements
and long-term business goals.
