Typically, your FoxWeb applications will be called via Web browsers, so there's no way to interact with data, such as VFP tables, on the client computer.
 
If your client base is small and consistent, and utilizes your application on a frequent basis (for example if you are writing an intranet application), you could utilize VFP as the front end to your application instead of a Web browser.  The front end would use an HTTP control to communicate with the FoxWeb scripts running on your Web server and would also have access to local data.  Essentially, the front end would be a regular VFP app., which would have the ability to exchange information (probably in XML format) with the Web server.
 
Please note that undertaking such a project is not a 1-2 day task and that there a lot of things you will need to figure out on your own.  Also this solution would not work if your client base is a broad set of users that occasionally connect over the Internet to collect, or update information, because such a group would not be willing to download and install a client-side application (as well as the VFP run-time DLLs).

Hello all,
 
I have a foxweb script that collects information in a form and then inserts such information into a foxpro table located at the server side (no matter if the table is located in the same computer where the web server resides, or in another computer over the Intranet).
 
Now, my question is: is it possible in any way to insert the same record into a table located at the client side from the same script, or using other techniques?. I mean the same table (same structure) is also located at the C drive of the client machine and I need to duplicate the record inserted into the server
 
Any help will be apreciated
 
Thanks
