Developing Databases

Visual Studio .NET 2003

After you have designed your database, you can build the database through the interface or with the language. You might want to add existing tables to your database and then modify them to take advantage of the data dictionary features in Microsoft Visual FoxPro. If you are working within a project in the Project Manager, you can add the tables as you create them.
