Missing Data while reading a .FPT file

Last Modified: 2012-05-11

  I have a .net windows application which imports all the FoxPro data in to sql server database.
For one of the tables in the FoxPro database, I have the .FPT file along with the .DBF file(both files with same name) . I have all the comments fields stored in that .FPT file.
Now, When I try to import, I got all the data from the .DBF file, but I don't see any data coming from the .FPT file.  This FPT file is almost half of the size of .DBF file, around 3.3MB

However, when I tried to import the other table, I got the data from both .DBF file and .FPT file as well. This FPT file size is less than 1MB.
