VFP - From DBF to Access data base - Strategy

Hi Experts

Since VFP was unfortunally discontinued I'm planning to start a new version of a system in VB.net (I guess it's the only remaining language with low discontinuing risks - using forms - any other suggestions ?)  so  I would be glad in having a strategy to migrate .DBF files contents to aceess tables in an automated way, could you help ?

Thanks in advance

I'm stiil in a dilema about and don't want to loose efforts... maybe don't change is the better option by now....
I would say to wait a bit since there are lots of changes coming up in the .Net world.
Do you mean changes due to the Cloud rocket start, Captain?
My team is working on a few .net applications. Every year we have to change the connection to the database. The application uses huge data so sometimes ORM.Net is way too slow. So we change to ADO.Net. Then they come up with LINQ and now they are discontinuing LINQ and working on ADO.Net. Microsoft MVPs filed petitions against this new ADO.Net and now Microsoft is thinking to go back to upgrading ORM. So go figure.

VFP Rocks!
