I am at my wits end here. I was asked to 'convert' a FoxPro database into MS Access. The problem is that I have no idea how to get to the 'developer/backend code' files. What should I look for?
We have imported the tables and can see screens, but have no idea of the logic or coding that goes into them.

Please, I am begging!

Remember ... Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins flew to the moon and back with a computer system less complex than a modern, programmable toaster ...

If you just want the data and not any screens or reports then look for DBF files.

You can import DBF files directly into an Access database. Click New Data Source > From Database > dBase File and browse to the DBF file(s) you want to import. Selecting the dBase IV option should be compatible with most (possibly not all) FoxPro files. One DBF file corresponds to a table in Access terms so there may be multiple files associated with your FoxPro application.
