Visual FoxPro
Visual FoxPro is a database application that uses a xBASE file format. If the source data file references a memo field file, the memo file must exist for the connection to occur. The primary data file usually has a .DBF extension and the memo file usually has a .FPT extension. FoxPro files are structured; for example, both the data and the file structure are stored inside the primary data file.
With this dBASE IV connector, the integration platform can read Visual FoxPro files. For more information about connector options, see dBASE IV.
