Thank you Sir Wolfgang,

I created this project because I'm missing the per record navigation and manipulation of data under managed world most of available database engine are using Dataset only fecthed from connected database using whatever query language :lol:

By using X# and Managed Dbf in VS it looks like programming in CLIPPER 5.3 C :) :) L

Hi Dexter,

please don't the "Sir" here - we are all in the same boat....

You should have seen that here that there is a Vulcan RDD and that the devteam plans to write their own RDD.
RDD stays per "replaceable database driver" and was introduced by late versions of Clipper (AFAIK in v5) - and in fact it is the same record based database access like your "Managed DBF".

Hopefully earlier or later the development team will present an open source DBFCDX driver for X# - otherwise many people (including myself) will not be able to move their VO applications to the .NET platform.

[ Apology for the politeness -- can't break the habit :lol: ]

Hello Wolfgang,

I'm aware that there is Alaska++, Apollo, Harbour and of cource Vulcan.Net that is using their own DBFCDX driver in their database engine, but I haven't tried any of those, because I'm still contended using VFP at that time.

Your news just make my day, can't wait for that release, hopefully it breaks the DBF file size limitation of 2GIG ^_^ Y
