DBase Index Files

P: n/a
I am looking for information on how to deal with dbase index files
(cdx) when modifying data in dbase database files (dbf). I have an
application with hundreds of .dbf files that I need to modify from time
to time in a way that the application wont allow. I want to use access
to add records, delete records, modify, etc, but I'm clueless on how to
deal with the cdx and key files that accompany each dbf file. If
someone could shed some light on this or suggest some reference/reading
material I'd appreciate it.

I kind of thought that cdx (complex index files) were a feature of
FoxPro..and not that of dbase.

If you are in fact using FoxPro files, then you can still use, and setup the
CDX index. You have to install the FoxPro drivers.

I believe the other requirement is that you can some how usually identify
each record via some key type field.

If this is in fact a FoxPro file...then you can use the CDX index...

Could be foxpro files I guess. They are part of a custom app. Not sure
what it was written in. The files are dbf format. Thanks for the input.
I'll give the foxpro drivers a shot.
