I have a client who wants me to rewrite an old FoxPro program (extremely simple) so that his company can still utilize it.  It is so old, of course it is using the standard Dbase syntax (set defa on, set prg to .T. etc etc)

It only consists of 2 tables with relationship.  I was famaliar with programming in this years ago and am curious if anyone can recommend something that I can use to rewrite it that does not require a very large programming time and is able to read and write dbase tables.
I see that they have Dbase for Windows but don't know if it is any good.

Anyone have any ideas (its been years since I have done any programming ) but Dbase I'm still familiar with (not that I have used it in a while but syntax still comes back)

Needs to be multi-user as it is used in a warehouse to track inventory movements (currently they run it in virtual box ) but would like to run it natively on Windows 7 as they are preparing for upgrades.
