We have a vfp5 program and need to batch fax reports to our 300+ customers. All faxes are generated as report, i.e., different per customer. And we want to let the program to fill in fax#s.

Any 3rd party software we can use? We prefer foxpro since the reports already written.

Thank you for the reply.

Bought WinFaxPro 10 from Internet but no SDK with it. Seems like it's a discontinued product from Symantec.

Any way I can get a copy of the SDK?

I personally don't have the SDK.  It has been too long since I faxed anything.  :(
