VFP 9 SP2 Help File

The Visual FoxPro 9 SP2 Help file corrected, supported, and enhanced.

Project Manager: Francis FAURE

Ownership transfer of the VFP 9 SP2 Help file source code and rights to change from Microsoft to VFP Community via Creative Commons licensing.

What are the goals of this project?

  1. Provide corrected VFP 9 SP2 Help file to the VFP Community. Corrections to the Help file include corrected index, corrected hyperlinks, and corrected stylesheet.

  2. Allow the VFP Community to further enhance the Help file moving forward, adding missing content for VFP 9 SP2 and Sedna, making necessary corrections to existing examples, and repairing additional things missing in the index (like the SYS() functions).
