NEEDED: FoxPro vs Access Evaluation

NEEDED: FoxPro vs Access Evaluation

Post by Larry Fie » Fri, 22 Apr 1994 19:18:51

We're currently in the process of trying to choose between Windows databases
for a new payroll/personnel/budget system.  The main system will be housed on
a mainframe but we will maintain subsets of the data on a file server that
will be accessible to the users for various queries.

What we'd like to know is if anyone has done an extensive evaluation of these
two databases and chosen one over the other.  Any advice and/or help you can
provide will be greatly appreciated.  If you can e-mail your evaluation that
would be even better.

Thanks for your help.
