Topic: Social Security Number validation with Visual FoxPro We'll look at the components of a Social Security Number, view a bit of SSN history, then go into some FoxPro procedures. There's a program that parses the HighGroup.txt file (found on the SSA website) into a FoxPro table. Another program or function takes a Social Security Number and verifies that that number has been issued. This is useful as an initial check for a valid Social Security Number. If time permits, we'll watch part of a webcast presentation by the late Drew Speedie on VFP 9 enhancements to the form & class designers.
