The easiest way consists in creatting an ODBC Data Source based on the FoxPro database (or on a single FoxPro table), then link (attach) the table(s) from this source into your Access database.
See: How to: Open the ODBC Data Source Administrator
and also: Creating an Access database from a dBASE file - Access - Office.com
