Hello everyone,

my name is Jean. I live in Grenoble a town in France (in Europe). I am 57. My 
old computer was under W98 and I have bought a brand new one under W7-64.

I am a fan and I work with Foxpro and VisualFoxpro since 1988. I work as a 
freelance and I still have customers under DOS. I also teach Fortran and C in 
high tech companies. It's because I work with old version of Fox that my 
nickname was given to me on the VFP mailing list as a contraction of Fox and 
Fossile !

VFP is an excellent client to SQL databases and I want to learn to use an 
'external' database. And if I am supposed to be an expert in SQL, triggers, 
stored procedures, .... I know NOTHING about Windows, ODBC, and Postgres. So I 
hope I am on the right list !!!

My first question is about ODBC : reading the docs and sites, I found I need 
ODBC. I found a place in Windows (data sources) that says : ODBC drivers must 
delivered by the 'database vendor'. Is there a standard ODBC driver for 64 bits 
systems ? If yes where can I download it ?

best regards
The Foxil
