Non-VFP related links:  SYSInternals /

While non-VFP, I remember using SYSInternals Process Monitor in one of our projects. We were tracing a 15 year old FoxPro codes that when printed would consume 5,000+ pages on a size 6 font ( and yes we printed those ).

It was easier checking on which files were used and are being modified.

Of course we still have to review the codes.

Remembered it when I stumbled upon this How To Print a Grid query at\VFP forum.

With the premise that everything is possible, try doing that in your other PL.

Of course you can... but someone from the FoxPro 'world' made it first.
