Hi Alex,

As Mike said, you can use Visual FoxPro as a front end to SQL Server. Read about Client/Server Solution Development in the VFP Help.

As far as cost goes, depending on the volume of data you have, you may be able to use SQL Express which is free. If you stick with VFP as the front end you are likely to need less (re)programming time than writing a whole new app.

If you do write a whole new app then it's a good time to re-assess the app itself and determine if requirements have changed.
