Greetings & Salutations,

I'm new to the software, but the company I recently joined has been using it for ten years to create their proposals. Trouble is, they are using version 0.921.8.

My question is this . . . is it worth trying to find a resource I can utilze to upgrade my datatbase within this old a version, or am I better off just starting from scratch.

That version number doesn't make a lot of sense. What do you see if you type:

VERSION()

in the Command Window.

Oh, and as long as it's Visual FoxPro and not FoxPro 2.x, the upgrade path is pretty straightforward.

The software is over ten years old and that's the version number that comes up. Could it really be pre-v.1

I assumed you have vfp9. You may install sp1 (if is not installed). You may use old format of databases if they are red well by vfp9, just recreate indexes files (if they are) with vfp9 commands. After you designed the application you may convert databases in newer format and also you may compare speed access.

No. As Tamar said, it is either in Visual FoxPro (Versions 3 to 9) or pre-visual: FoxPro DOS v2.x or FoxPro Windows v2.x

You may be reading the version of the application you are dealing with. If you have the development environment (IDE), type:

Version(5)

in the Command Box. You should get a major version number back (in Visual FoxPro). e.g "900" for VFP 9.0

If you do not have the Visual FoxPro installed, then you have to clarify your question some more. Are you talking about re-writing an app Or modifying a database
