Opening *.mdx & *.idx files with Visual Basic 4.0

Opening *.mdx & *.idx files with Visual Basic 4.0

Post by John Gal » Sun, 18 May 1997 04:00:00

I have a need to directly open MS Internet Mail files and read the contents
with Visual Basic like you can an Access database. Does anyone have any
insight on how to accomplish this?

1. Visual FoxPro ODBC Driver cannot open .IDX index file

I use Microsoft Visual FoxPro ODBC Driver in Visual Basic to access FoxBASE
database files.
But I found the driver didn't open .IDX index files with the .DBF table
files. It just open the DBF files for read/write.

Would anyone please tell me where to setup to let the ODBC driver can
open/update .DBF and .IDX files in the same time when I retrieve or update
the dbf files.

I have been test the Microsoft XBase ODBC diver, it can setup index
information in an .INF file with the same name of the .DBF file, but the
driver crashed when I open a large .DBF file (File size larger then 40MB).

The version of Visual FoxPro ODBC driver I use is 5.00.00402 (97/02/03).
The version of XBase ODBC driver I use is 3.50.360200 (96/12/04).

Thanks in advance.
