> I hate to disappoint you. Noone knows 'everything' about VFP, although some come 'Real' close.

> Even as you watch the replies to posts from the 'Experts', you will notice that ocassionaly they post questions themselves.

> Does this mean they are not 'Experts'?
>
> No!

> It means they have experience with VFP & FPD and are willing to share their experience with us. In most cases, they know more than you or I, but that does not mean you may not have a personal little jewel of a technique tucked away in your back pocket which could really help out someone in a bind.

> I, personally, am not an Expert. I know this, and can live with this. I also know I will probably never be. But I stay up here because I can learn things I will never learn from a book, or ever discover by myself.
>
> So, do not set out to be an Expert. Set out to develop the applications you are tasked to develop. Learn to pass parameters to .prg's so you can use them in other apps also(Do...With). Then you can start to get creative. The people up here will be glad to help you all along the way. That is, if you are straight with them.
>
> If you are a student at a university, do all you can to develop on your own. If it doesn't work, then come here for help. Somebody always does.
>
> Just keep in mind, these folk are, for the most part, developing in other languages as well. Eric owns this site, but has been developing in .net for the last couple years. He just lately came back to nest.
>
> In other words, get professional in your niche, and then expand your horizons. And don't believe the nay-sayers that VFP is going away. It will eventually, but I personally believe there are too many developers out there who don't want it to.

> Something will happen, and you, yourself, may part of making it happen.
