There are many solutions for this. My recommendation is to install and activate an HTTP server (in your case Internet Information Server, IIS which is part of Windows 2000 and XP). Write a simple ASP script in Visual Basic Script that reads the necessary value from the FOXPRO database via ODBC.
You can call the HTTP request from SAP with function HTTP_GET or HTTP_POST.
