Third Edition August 2004

Thanks to the FoxPro team for finally making an improvement to the excellent client server capabilities of Visual FoxPro and to redware customers worldwide for employing our consultancy services to convert applications to the client server platform.

Second Edition September 2001

Thank you this time to Victor, Phong and especially James for helping build really big database systems during our roller coaster ride at First Telecom. Thanks also to the job market for letting me take a break and update this book.

First Edition December 1996

Thank you to the technical team at F1 Computing Systems past and present for eight years of implementing FoxPro projects. All of my FoxPro experience has resulted from working with Ian, Phong, James, Danny and David on various projects during my eight years at F1. They still have the best training courses and FoxPro team in the UK.

Thank you especially to James Thornton at F1 Computing who put me straight on a few things regarding SQL Server. Any errors remaining in this book are, of course, down to me and I apologise in advance for them. Please email me with your comments, good and bad.
