is there any tools or solutions of papaer to convert foxpro code to
visual foxpro ?
You might want to check out the article in the January 98 FoxPro Advisor by
Chuck Urwiler of MEI. "Convert FoxPro 2.x Apps to Visual FoxPro Gradually!"
is a good overview of course that Micro Endeavors gives on conversion. I
took this course from Chuck and found it most helpfull. I note that for
those that don't have the time (2 days) or budget to go for this training,
they are now offerring a self-study course for much less and it even
includes some real useful tools they've developed.
While the MS CD has a lot of information, I think that MEI technique covers
the real practical stuff and not just the theoritical.

the Migration CD. This includes a link (right now) to

Does anybody have the following experience:
In command window:
? time() ==> for example: 9:00am
change the system time to 10:00am without exit
? time() ==> the time is still 9:00am
I have an application which is very critical on time field. All the
machine time will be synchronized five times a day. However, time() in
FW2.6 won't refresh the new time unless we totally close the application
and reopen. This only happened on NT4.0, WIN95 is fine.
You neglected to say exactly how you are changing the system time. Control
Panel, DOS prompt, FP RUN, Win API call, external program? Some change the
time in memory, some change the CMOS time.
