I am told to rewrite a two year old system  that was done using dBase IV to be rewritten using VB.net and ADO.NET. After doing so, what would be the advantages and dis-advantages of using ADO.NET instead of keeping it on dBase IV?

dBASE IV is ancient technology into today's database world.  I believe there are even dBASE V versions out there in the wild but are used far less than dBASE IV and dBASE III ever were.  

ADO.Net is the latest and evolving technology from MS that allows you enough flexibility via the same mechanisms to get to all sorts of data now and in the future.

You say VB.Net and ADO.Net.  I wonder from just that what data format will the data be in that VB programming will use via ADO to get to.  ??
