Backing up Paradox files

Using D2 with Paradox data files, each having multiple secondary indices...

Is there a way to back up the files WITHOUT the secondary index files while still maintaining Table structure.

Specifically- I know that Batchmove will copy the basic table without the secondary indexes, but it somehow doesn't copy the fact that one of the fields is the KEY field.  I >NEED< that KEY field info!

What I'd like to be able to do is back up the basic table, then I'll regenerate the secondary indexes in my "restore from backup" code.

Thank you!

You almost there.  The batchmove copies the table and the underlying structure.  If you want, you can then examine the FieldDefs and IndexDefs structures.  These are for the underlying dataset.  Look at the help for the methods and properties here.  You should be able to re-create the key field/indexes from here.

Not a GREAT answer, 'cuz it leaves a hell of a lot still to be found out by the question asker (me).  However, since I WAS able to work it all out, I went ahead and marked it "Good".
