How can I compare MS Access, VB and FoxPro ?

I need to create client application with connection to MS SQL server.
Data on SQL part and end user requirements can be changed often.

Best regards

Well, If particularly I dont like FoxPro and between Access and Fox I
choose the first with
my eyes closed. If your application is most data extensive only you have a
more easy way
with Access, otherwise your application require to be most flexible (not
only data entry and
reporting) your best bet is with VB. You can search the node of microsoft
for white papers
with more detail about this topic-

This is not enough information to effectively help you chose a tool.

It will be a bit quicker to develop in Access, but performance will be
better in VB - generally speaking. VB is also quite a bit more flexible as a
development tool and - naturally - you don't need Access to run the
resulting apps.

Depending on what you mean by "requirements can be changed often" either VB
or Access may be suitable. If "often" means something like daily, weekly, or
monthly you may find the development speed and ease of distribution with
Access to be a big advantage. If "often" means every six months or once a
year, ease of use and distribution with Access will be less of a factor.

I don't know FoxPro so can't give you any useful comment on it.
