hello hello
     we currently have a system that is a proprietary foxpro report software made for us by a consultant. The header on the reeports has company information and a picture of the company logo. Now they are changing the ompany name and logo. The company information is not hard to change it is in a DBF file. It is the picture I am concerned with. My thinking was to change or remove it. now to change it could i not find where the pic is stored and name the pic im replacing it with by the same name and then delete the original. The guy says it cannot be done because the picture is compiled in the program. I just dont know if im being duped or not becasue i dont know anything about foxpro. would this or just deleting the picture file work ?

as I understand it the picture cant be compiled in the code ....only the PATH to the picture.
The picture can be compiled in the code OR it can be a simple external file OR it can be a picture embedded in a field/column within a FoxPro table/dbf.

I had a similar question five years ago where the "programmer" skipped on a company and they needed to change the logo (company name change) and of course they needed lots of things to get fixed.  I used a FoxPro decompiler called ReFox to get the source code back for them and I quickly changed their logo that was in fact embedded within the compiled program code.
