Accessing the Database Designer

Select, or highlight, a database name in the Data Builder treeview list and click the Designer button on the Databases page to access the Visual FoxPro Database Designer.

Tip: The VPM Enterprise Data Builder should be your main tool for creating and modifying databases and tables. The Data Builder is where a VPM Enterprise application looks for data dictionary data when it needs it.

The Visual FoxPro Database Designer is a great tool. However, the work you do in the Database Designer is not automatically saved in the VPM Enterprise Data Builder. Nevertheless, you can use the Database Designer if you follow the few, simple guidelines listed in How to Use the Visual FoxPro Database Designer.
