File type: FoxPro report file, Visual Basic binary form
About the FRX file type
Depending on the application using it, the FRX file extension functions as a report file or as a binary form file.
The FRX file extension functions as a report file for FoxPro. FoxPro is a text-based and procedurally-oriented programming language. It does not just work as a programming language but a database management system as well.
It was originally published by Fox Software. But was later purchased by Microsoft and used for:
- the MS Windows,
- Apple Macintosh.
Sometimes, FoxPro is also considered as a relational database management system, although it lacks the transactional processing. So far, FoxPro is no longer sold. However, there is still a worldwide community composed of FoxPro programmers and users, making the FRX an active file extension.
The FRX file extension is appended to reports generated by FoxPro as well as Visual FoxPro.
