Based on your dbf data dump it would seem to be Visual FoxPro. Have you tried using excel to open one of your. In order to get around the BDE access problems you can connect foxpro databases via a ODBC connection through the foxpro driver or via a access linked table. Sorry cannot help you here We bought Delphi with the understanding that the Borland Database Engine was read-write capable middleware for all database platforms. It looks like it, structure explained here. So this means that the mission-critical application we spent six months developing to read and write to legacy FoxPro files is now a wash?

Thanks for your feedback! From the first glance into DBF file, it looks like it has field descriptors there.
The BDE has problems, Our company has used a Foxpro Database system for some time and using anything other than ODBC access to the tables results in Table open problems due to FoxPro index reading problems and I have no faith in foxppro from a write perspective On overpopulated connection string: Borland just wimps out and leaves me with hours on top of hours troubleshooting an application that is not in a useable form now.
