DOS/foxbase,clipper help


Dear Sir,

I amt working into fbase & clipper from last 5 years now i want to use multi user code. so please help me. how i change my dbase code that use me mumty user.


Hello Mohammed,

Unfortunately there is no simple answer to your question, let me explain why.

dBase was designed as a mono-user environment, you could use special tricks to achieve multi-user funcionality, if your software was designed with this improvement in mind. dBase had some commands to assist the software designer in achieving this task.

If it's not, then you could import your code into FoxPro (visual foxpro can do the trick) and adapt it there. However, it requires good programming skills.

If you already migrated your code into foxbase or clipper, I think you have enough experience and you already started the conversion process. There are a lot of tutorials out there who can teach you how to convert your software.

I know you're proficient enough, it's a good project. It will take some time and patience.

If you need more information please let me know.
