As I have previously posted, I have been tasked with converting a FoxPro database to Access 2016. Yes, I know that it won't 'convert' but will have to be rebuilt.
I have never used FoxPro but I hoped to be able to get the FoxPro tables into Access, then rebuild the forms based on screen shots provided. I don't even know how to get into the forms, tables, etc. in FoxPro.
We thought that the tables were all stored as dbf files but they are not. I am completely and totally lost on this project. Unfortunately so is everyone else working here since the FoxPro database was built almost 25 years ago (yikes!).

The owner of this company is willing to pay someone to help me get the tables into Access by any means possible. You would have to be experienced with FoxPro. If you know how to do this, or would be available and will to help, please let me know.
Just know that you have to be familiar enough with FoxPro to tell him what you need to have sent to you to accomplish what we need.

Hi,

Not me but I may know someone, just need to see if he's available. So, just as a last resort, if you don't find anyone else, let me know, and I'll ask him.

Good luck!

Yes, dbGuy, please see if your guy is available.
We are pretty desperate at this point.

Hi,

Sorry, I went upstairs to talk to him but his coworkers said he's already gone for the weekend. I won't be able to talk to him until Monday.
