Thank you uelsk8s.
I will try to concentrate on kexi in the meantime. Kexi, KDE's database, is great, but I hate the fact that all data in a kexi table is deleted on even the slightest redesign of the table fields. So far I have not found an acceptable work-around. But I suspect I will if I use the program for a while.
Or perhaps just continue using dos foxpro 2.6 under dosemu. It works fine for a guy like me, who changes his database mind every now and then, but I think its about 30 years old.
