VB will utilize the JET engine to translate the DBF files.  The term VB and Access (JET) use is ISAM file.

JET will handle all of the record locking for you.

The following is some code I pulled out of an archive from a VB 3 app.  Once the table is open, then you can manipulate it with the standard DAO methods like .AddNew, .Edit, .Update.


 Dim xdb As Database
 Dim tbl As Table

 Set xdb = OpenDatabase("C:\dBase\Data", False, False, "FoxPro 2.5;")
 Set tbl = xdb.OpenTable("MyFile.dbf")
