Vista Software's Artemis 5.0 allows you to continue using Clipper files
(DBF/DBT/NTX) within VB/VC++ or any other development platform that supports
making direct .DLL calls. It also supports FoxPro files (DBF/FPT/IDX/CDX),
as well as the SIx Driver RDD's proprietary HiPer-SIx formats (DBF/SMT/NSX).
Artemis 5.0 is a set of direct API functions that you call from your Windows
application. Additionally it includes a plug-n-play replacement for the
existing VB Data Control, allowing you to connect the Artemis database
engine to VB's own data-aware controls as well as those from 3rd-party
companies such as APEX or Sheridan.
Vista Software also has an OLE DB provider solution in beta -- VIPER OLE DB.
This uses the same core database engine technology as Artemis, but allows
you to use OLE DB / ADO connectivity to get to the data.
The typical deployment size for Artemis is very small -- about 350k. For
VIPER OLE DB it's still very small at about 700k.
For additional information on Artemis or VIPER OLE DB, visit the Vista
Software web site at www.VistaSoftware.com.
Take a look at the Artemis database driver for VB. www.vistasoftware.comQuote:> Does somebody know how to access an index clipper from Visual Basic, I

I am trying to access legacy Clipper files via Ado2.0.
The app accesses Clipper files via linked tables to an Access database.
the whole thing could be re-written.. but there is no time given the size of
the legacy data.
It works fine up to VB6 Sp2...
I am told that it will work using Voxpro's driver.
Has anybody got any ideas?
