Visual Basic is a software development tool whereas Visual Foxpro is
specifically a database program. VB can be (and often is) used to create
custom user interfaces and processing of data, and is capable of developing
data applications for a variety of database formats. Foxpro like Access is a
database tool only and doesn't create executable files. VB can create an
application which can utilize a Foxpro database on a user's machine without
Foxpro actually being installed on the user's machine. It uses the Microsoft
Jet database engine to accomplish this. One would just need to distribute
the Jet engine runtimes with the application.

You can achieve similar results with both Access and FoxPro. They are
different in how the databases are configured. Access stores the data in a
single file, whereas FoxPro creates several files (one for each table I
believe). Access is found in the Office suites, FoxPro is found in the
Visual Studio suites. Either will create a database that is usable by Visual
Basic via the Microsoft Jet DB Engine. FoxPro is more of a database
management application vs Access which is primarily a database application.
FoxPro is more likely to provide better client/server and enterprise
