    See for example VFP vs Access (note: it's not entirely up-to-date and some of the links don't work).

    Microsoft has announced that Visual FoxPro 9 (released in 2004, with service packs in 2005 and 2007) was the last major release - there will be no Visual FoxPro 10.
    With the new database engine for Access 2007, Microsoft has shown that it's committed to keep on developing Access.

    Hi Hans,
    It's gorgeous to meet you here. I'm saddened by the VFP's hopeless prospect. Did you program VFP before?

    No, I've never used VFP.

    No, I haven't. Where I work, SQL Server is used for databases with lots of data and/or lots of users, and Access for smaller projects.
