Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It is not possible to lock any dbf file, rather than just make them hide or read only. Hope u know this procedure. It is better u have to download Folder Lock utility and install it. By the help of this utility u may lock foxpro folder or unlock as ur wish.

Hope it will work 4 u..

    Why not try just locking the PC when you leave it. Less hassle in the long run.

    You can use a round about method to secure dbf files:
    1. Save your dbf inf the sdf format. 
    use file1
    copy to file2 sdf
    zap
    use
    2. Open the file2.sdf text file in MS Word
    3. Save file2.sdf as a word document through SaveAs
    4. Protect file2.doc by a password
    Tools>Options->Security->Password to open.
    5. Save and Close file2.doc.
    6. Erase file2.sdf
    --------------------------------------------------------
    To use this data:
    1. Open file2.doc (provide password)
    2. Save file as text file with extension .sdf
    File->SaveAs "file2.sdf"
    3. Close file2.doc
    4. Open FoxPro/VFP and use file1.dbf (empty file)
    5. Type Append from file2.sdf sdf
    Use your data.
