> Good day,
> I am not a visual fox pro programmer. I don't know anything about visual foxpro but i i understand a little about database programming in MS Access. I need your help.
> My family have a distribution business. For 5 years we keep manual record.Only this year we computerized our inventory and invoicing system using foxpro.We contacted a developer to build it for us. He has an old program created for other company and that what he modified for us to use. For now we have a server and 2 client computer.We would like to connect a new client but our programmer is not showing up nor returning our calls. Perhaps you can help me how to connect it. At this point, the new computer is already networked but it cannot access the database system.
> thank in advance

Hi Ivan,

I suspect that the application or "program" he sold to you is just a "stand-alone", meaning not designed for "multitasking" or networking (allowing simultaneous access by several users).

Not all applications (or program as we call them) is designed for networking. Especially the very old ones. What is best is for you to consult another local programmer there to check on the software that was sold to you!

Anyway, let us also wait for the experts here. Maybe they can give you something worth checking on your end and can guide you to accomplish your goal.
