Hello Leif,

Thank you for your message - we will use your website as a reference. Yes, it was always our plan to learn PostgreSQL as fast as possible - but it never hurts to ask others how they accomplished a similar feat. It's also obvious this is not going to be a quick migration, so we'll get started in phases. 

PS. I agree about the old legal message that was automatically appended to all our mail. Silly indeed!

Regards,

Kevin

The most important step is to get a thorough grip on PostgreSQL, and 
understand what it can do for you. With a clear grasp of concepts such as 
transactions and foreign key constraints, you'll probably find it far easier to 
implement your business logic with a PostgreSQL database than dirty ol' 
FoxPro. On the other hand, you're much more on your own wrt the interface.

On a far smaller scale than your project, I migrated my genealogy database 
from a commercial FoxPro program to my own homegrown PostgreSQL/PHP 
application. You can read about it here:

That is a rather silly thing to tell an email list.
