 Visual Basic 6.0 vs. Visual Dbase 7.01

VB is ok for new development.  But for migration of xBase apps it
would be my last choice.  Primarily because that's what I've been
doing for the last 2 years.  Migrating a monstrous old Foxpro for DOS
app to VB.  And I didn't want VB either.  It was forced on me by
management.  To minimize cost and time spent, you must stick as
closely to the original environment as you can.  I know nothing about
Visual dBase, but I'm sure it would be a lot easier for you to migrate
your application to than VB.

Give Visual Foxpro 6 a look. It is bundled in Visual Studio 6.  The language
will be familiar but you can then extend into the SQL and object oriented
approach when you get a chance.  VFP 6 also has a Year 2000 tool that checks
for suspicous statements.  You might be able to make your existing app y2k
compliant with some tweaks and then find some time to update it to OOP and
event driven.

Another plus of VFP6 is that it can query millions of records in sub-second
time.  MS Access beings to slow down well before that.

Just my two cents.
