I'm having much difficulty interfacing with our companies MRP database. The MRP database was written in Visual FoxPro and therefore creates Visual FoxPro DBF files. These files are almost identical as dBase III DBF files with the exception of the header.

Does anyone have information on how to get Visual FoxPro DBF files into FMP? I need to re-import often, so the process needs to be automated. We have FMP Server on OS X Server, so a command line DBF converted or something like it would work.

Any suggestions or different approaches would be gladly appreciated.

BTW, I have yet tried ODBC simply because of my lack of knowledge on the subject.

I was able to connect to the Visual FoxPro database via a ODBC connection. It works wonders!

BTW, I still have 2 unanswered problems that anyone might be able to help with:
