[Foxpro Data] <-> [Foxpro ODBC driver] <-> [ODBC data source in system panel] <->[Base] <-> [OOo Documents]

There is no Foxpro driver in Base because the developers of this application can not write a solution for every proprietary data dump of computing history.
ODBC (or JDBC) drivers are made by the database vendors (MS in this case) in order to grant access to other database tools (Access or Base for example).
Google for "Foxpro +ODBC".
