have you tried exporting the sql serialNo field into XML or CSV or even into an excel spreadsheet?

if you can do that
you should be able to import those file types into FoxPro

if not what you can do is write a program that will connect to your sql db, read from it, save it as a dataset
then with your dataset insert it into a foxpro table

just something off the top of my head right now

the MySQLCommand and MySqlDataAdapter are mysql types, just sub those for SQL types

public function returnSQLStuff() as dataset

        Me.myQueryString = "SELECT SerialNo from Sales'"

        myCommand = New MySqlCommand(myQueryString, myConnection)
        myDataAdapter = New MySqlDataAdapter()
        myDataAdapter.SelectCommand = myCommand

        ds = New DataSet
        myDataAdapter.Fill(ds, "orders")

        Return ds

end function

myConnection isyour foxpro connectionstring

public function insertIntoFoxPro(serial as string) as boolean
 myQueryString = "INSERT INTO reference values ('" & serial & "')"

        myCommand = New MySqlCommand(myQueryString, myConnection)

end function

in your program call the SQL function
dim dSet as dataset
dim pRow as datarow

'populate the dataset with the SQL information
dSet = returnSQLStuff()

'now we iterate through each item in teh dataset and insert the value into foxpro
for each pRow in dSet.Tables("sales").rows
