I don't think so. But you can compile all the business rules that are built-in with the form into an ActiveX object. That way VB can reuse those business rules without having to re-invent the wheel. The GUI part can be quickly re-design in VB (I Hope), if you are not using something specifiy to Visual FoxPro.

Cheers,

It is not possible to convert the project done in Visual FoxPro, into Visual Basic.  One way is to redesign the front-end forms, and use the backend database as it is.  This way only, the screens have to be re-drawn again, and appropriate code added to access the database, in this case, it is VFoxPro database itself.
