The application is now being installed on dealer's web sites. Here it is live ( but smashed down to fit their web page template): http://www.boblindsayhonda.com/lease-calculator.htm

I did a test on SQL Server instead of DBF files, the DBF files were faster and needed less code. I guess if they get over 200 mb SQL may be the way to go.

The dealership has a server guy who didn't know it was a VFP application. He was bad mouthing VFP for being old and slow. He was glad my new Super Fast application was built on .NET and used SQL server backend. I let him ramble on, then told him that it was powered by VFP and used DBF tables. He told me "There is no way, a Foxpro application with that much data would be terribly slow." I just laughed and simply told him that any *Decent* Programmer can make VFP fly. I am still chuckling. He was so sure it was .NET with SQL. He had to admit it was extemely fast.

On the web the technology behind the web page isn't a big deal. Customers want it to be fast and look good. I used Dreamweaver with ActiveVFP. Amazingly it has to look through thousands of vehicles, and execute three thousand lines of code everytime they pick a vehicle, and it all happens in a blink of an eye.
