The data is easy. You can link Foxpro tables to an Access database and manipulate them in Access. You might prefer to create a series of views in Access rather than writing your Access code to work directly on the Foxpro tables. It will give you the chance to restructure the data if you need to, and to expand column names into something more descriptive.
