I know COM components work with FoxISAPI but got confused with the .NET technology line. Can VFP9 build a web application that can somehouw be processed by .NET and easily used on the internet?

Yep, it has been a very long time. I sat down the other day to build a very simple program and almost couldn't remember how to SEEK a table. :-)

But, back to this web question. I'm switching things up with my main business. We have a new name and new website ( www.claycountypc.com ). I've been comparing my PCs to Dell and my prices are very close. I'd like to have an online customization program like Dell does so people can configure the system they want. It would have a set list of parts and the price would change when they click on different items.

I've downloaded and installed ASP.NET, the Visual Developer, and SQL Express. I've learned an awful lot, but to be able to calculate things and to display things like I want I think I'd have to learn more about VB. It would be much simpler if I could just program it in VFP. I started to build a FoxISAPI program but noticed this site and figured I should keep up with advancing technology.

Eric, could you point me to some examples of the two techniques you mentioned? If I could easily write a VFP app that would work on the web I would gladly upgrade to version 9.

Thanks a lot.
Mike
