[Wine] Running Windows Database Applications

As it seems that we will be a year or so away from database application 
programs for linux like there are for windows (Foxpro, Paradox, dBASE, 
Access, Visual Basic, etc.), I am attempting to use windows as a development 
system (on a separate computer) and they copying the application to a linux 
computer (suse 9.3 to 10.1) to see if it will run under wine.

It seems that the testing that has been done on the above type of products are 
only whether the original program will run to create programs, not whether 
the compiled program will run under wine.

Does anyone have any experience/comments re: this issue?
