Hi,

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.

Thanks,
Sheldon

WinFax supports OLE automation from VFP.

Here is a place to look at code to support faxing from within VFP:

Carl,

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?

Thanks,
Sheldon

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