I meant having to have Foxpro installed. I just learned from another
reply that I may not have to have Foxpro installed as long as I have the
Foxpro ODBC driver, because then I could use odbc instead of fiddling
with the files directly.
While I may switch over to odbc in the future, I would still like to
have the idx/cdx components.
