Upsizing Visual FoxPro Databases

When you have designed your client/server application, you are ready to build and upsize a local prototype. A local prototype is a working model of your application using Microsoft Visual FoxPro tables, views, and databases to represent data that eventually will be accessed on a remote server. Use the upsizing wizards to move databases, tables, and views from your system to a remote Microsoft SQL Server server.

Goals for Prototyping

When you use Microsoft Visual FoxPro to build a prototype of your application, you are leveraging the power of visual forms, wizards, builders, designers, and the Project Manager to quickly develop a working application.

How to: Build a Local Prototype of an Application

When you build a local prototype of your application, you might be starting from scratch, or you might be converting an existing Microsoft Visual FoxPro application to a client/server application.

Database Creation with Upsizing Wizards

The Visual FoxPro SQL Server Upsizing Wizard creates SQL Servers that duplicate, as much as possible, the functionality of a set of tables in a Microsoft Visual FoxPro database.
