if U want to configure ODBC dynamically then use SQLConfigDataSource(...); with DSN as directory containing .dbf files..

Foxpro doesn't have any thing as database so U have to take UR entire directory of .dbf files as database and each .dbf file as recordset..

Hope this helps

Simple way:

CDatabase m_DB;
CString m_strFilePath=_T("c:\Mydbpath");

                  CString strDsn=_T("driver={Microsoft Visual Foxpro Driver};BackgroundFetch=Yes;SourceType=DBF;Exclusive=NO;SourceDB=");
                  strDsn+=m_strFilePath;
                  m_DB.OpenEx(strDsn, CDatabase::noOdbcDialog);
