My apologies if this is not the correct forum to ask. I'm investigating the possibility of linking 2 VFP free table directories to respective SQL databases in the same server instance. The reason I want to do this is to improve speed and functionality. In particular one scenario where a custom table gets created for a particular report which creates a conflict when the report gets run by multiple users. I was hoping that switching to a linked server would help eliminate such conflicts. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find much about this on the net and was hoping to find someone who has done this before and could share some advice and/or experience as to how well this scenario works and how to go about it. Thanks in advance!
