If you convert to Microsoft Access 2000 an Access database created in an earlier version that has a linked Microsoft FoxPro table, the icon of the table appears dimmed. Also, if you try to open the table, you receive the following error message:
Can't find installable ISAM.
The Microsoft FoxPro ISAM driver is no longer included with Microsoft Access.
Access to FoxPro data via the Microsoft Jet database engine was provided in earlier versions of Microsoft Access and earlier versions of the Microsoft Jet database engine. However, with Access 2000, access to Microsoft FoxPro data is possible only through the Microsoft Visual FoxPro ODBC driver. Access to FoxPro data through the Microsoft Jet database engine is no longer supported.
Steps to Reproduce Behavior
For more information about setting up ODBC data sources, click Microsoft Access Help on the Help menu, type set up ODBC data source in the Office Assistant or the Answer Wizard, and then click Search to view the topics returned.
