How to: Convert Earlier Visual FoxPro Files

Visual Studio 2005

You can explicitly convert FoxPro 2.6 and Visual FoxPro 3.0 files to the current Visual FoxPro format, which is necessary when you want to use these files with later versions of Visual FoxPro. Files that are created from later versions are converted automatically.

To convert FoxPro 2.6 and Visual FoxPro 3.0 files

  1. On the File menu, click Open.

  2. In the Open dialog box, browse for and select the file.

    The Visual FoxPro Converter dialog box opens. For more information, see Visual FoxPro Converter Dialog Box.

  3. In the Visual FoxPro Converter dialog box, select the options you want.

  4. To complete the file conversion, click Continue.
