Try:

With a database container:

oConn.Open "Driver={Microsoft Visual FoxPro Driver};" & _
           "SourceType=DBC;" & _
           "SourceDB=c:\somepath\mySourceDb.dbc;" & _
           "Exclusive=No;"
Without a database container (Free Table Directory):

oConn.Open "Driver={Microsoft Visual FoxPro Driver};" & _
           "SourceType=DBF;" & _
           "SourceDB=c:\somepath\mySourceDbFolder;" & _
           "Exclusive=No;"

or

OLE DB Provider for Visual FoxPro

oConn.Open "Provider=vfpoledb;" & _
           "Data Source=.\MyDB.dbc;"
