From the dbf fragment you provided in the above mentioned post one can see that there are two different types of data saved in general field:
1. having OLE Class "Drafix.Drawing.4", (record 22, one record only) and;
2. (for all other records) saved as MetaFile Picture without original OLE Information, and many of them having clear signs of original drawings cut or cropped.

I doubt anyone can succeed in getting dwg file back from records #2; and having so few records #1, I guess, you probably do not need only them (not to mention I believe it can not be done in FoxPro 2).

Good Luck
