Hello I am a visual basic programmer and I know nothing about foxPro. I am given a dbf file I do not the dbase version . I need to develop an vb application what will work on it and insert data into the sql server database. I have download the foxPro driver to use with ADO . While I am trying to access the file I got err msg saying unrecognised datbase format.
How can I work on it ? And develop the application so that user does not face such problems so on as he will use the software to process his data from an foxpro application which is used by other department
Best regards

You'll have to find out for sure what it is, first. "dbf" could be a few different database types. DBase IV and foxPro are the most common, and are completely different.
