I've build a database program with Visual Foxpro, and use Visual Foxpro database/table. Example :

Select 1

use c:\data\table1

But sometimes my database/table located at server drive (my network place). So I typed, for example :

Select 1

use \\server\data\table1

It doesn't work properly, because Visual Foxpro cannot recognize the network drive. How to solve this problem ....thank's.......

Re: Using database in network


The syntax you used should work. What exactly does VFP say when you issue the USE command

Nothing wrong with the syntax. Simple and maybe obvious questions:

  • Is there a share in the server folder
  • Does the program (or you) have enough permissions on that shared folder

Re: Using database in network


You may try to map network drive(ex. X):


use X:\data\table1
