Logical Indexes

Logical Indexes in Paradox Setup, Vista, etc. topic (part of our Corel Paradox / ObjectPAL Coding group).

Quick Search: Logical   Indexes   Logical Indexes  
-- USA

To all,

As I migrated from Paradox 8 to Paradox 11, I noticed that I was not able to recreate one of my secondary indexes in the newer version.  The secondary index included a numerical field and then a logical field.  The logical (boolean) field was not listed as one I could add in the table restructure dialog box.  I went back to version 8 and added it.  Is there another way to do this so that I can retire my older version.

from the help

"You can define a secondary index on any field or group of fields in a table except memo, formatted memo, binary, OLE, graphic, logical,"

in general, I use number/integer/short field with 1/0 as the indicator values.. 1 is true, 0 is false.. probably cuz I go all the way back to the beginning of PdoxDOS, and there was no logical field :-)
