One of my clients is having an old inventory application written may be in Clipper. This application has Arabic support, i.e., data can be entered and printed in Arabic. Data is stored in DBF tables (may be dBase). The clinet wants a new application written in VFP with Arabic support. At the same time, they want to keep the existing data. Although I can open the DBF files in VFP, the Arabic text entered in various fields are not displayed as Arabic. These are something which you cannot read. A report created using the table and Arabic fonts etc. has the same effect - you cannot read.

Is there any way to convert the data to new VFP tables without losing any properties?? May be by setting some codepage?

Thanks for help.
