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.
