FoxPro

Visual FoxPro (VFP), and its predecessor FoxPro, is a data-centric, object-oriented, procedural, database programming language and IDE from Microsoft last released in 2007 that still has some active use due to its low cost of deployment and fairly rapid development. In 2008, Microsoft released a set of add-ons for VFP's xBase components to allow interoperability with various Microsoft technologies. It allows data processing against its native file-based data tables or database servers such as SQL Server.

I am trying to automate printing in foxpro.My requirement is When I clicked on print button It should start printing without asking for the destination folder dialogue box. printing is working fine..But it always asks for destination folder dialogue box

i tried with set printer to funtion..But it is for pointing the .exe file of the default printer

set printer on

odoc.printout()

Is there any option in foxpro to set destination folder programatically?

 in my system I have adobe pdf and pdf995.

Thanks in Advance

I know very little about Foxpro (9), but I can get around in it and understand the basic principles.
All I need is to export a database to a CSV file then set that up on task scheduler (to run every night) with an .exe or .bat.
I would need as much detail as possible, but I'll understand it quickly.
No form is needed - just simple export statements, but as I understand it, they have to be run inside FoxPro.

How do I import data from the Horizontal grid into a visual FoxPro table?  The Horizontal grid view is attached below as well as the prg. code.  Some of the Horizontal grid cfld fields contain group data.  The cfld fields should not contain a lot of data, for example, each cfld field contains the item#, qnty, and description.  There should be a cfld for date, quantities, and descriptions.

The Horizontal grid should look like this below inorder to match the fields in the Ldy2 table:
Cfld1 is date field
cfld2 is a qnty field that should be named Blktamtin
cfld3 is description field that should be named Blankets
cfld4 is another qnty field that should be named shptamtin
cfld5 is another description field that should be named Flat Sheets
cfld6 is another qnty field that should be name shtbtamtin
cfld7 is another description field that should be name Fit Sheets
cfld8 is another qnty field that should be name sprdamtin
cfld9 is another description field that should be name Spreads
cfld10 is another qnty field that should be name btamtin
cfld11 is another description field that should be name Bath Towels
cfld12 is another qnty field that should be name bstamtin
cfld13 is another description field that should be name Bea Shop Towels
cfld14 is another qnty field that should be name pcmatin
cfld15 is another description field that should be name Pillow Cases
cfld16 is another qnty field that should be name wcamtin
cfld17 is another description field that should be …

Is it possible to open a book in my Kindle library from a FoxPro application? If so, how?

On a different note: Is the last version of FoxPro still available as a part of MSDN subscription?

Thank you.

I purchased vfp8 some while ago after creating many exe programs from compiled foxpro 2.6 for DOS.   I need to run foxpro in windows (7) to access usb  (mainly since no modern computers/printers have parallel ports now).   I have converted most of my programs to run in vfp8  (SQL not OOP) with no problems.   Vfp8  creates a stand alone (exe) program  with no problems but when I run it all I get is a blank screen with no reaction from the keyboard.  The task Manager shows the program running.  I can only think I have omitted or added something to create this situation.  Having scanned the web for answers which have not solved my problem such as the "read" command being replaced by "read event" I am at a loss to know what to do.   Can you please help me?
