Create a Paradox Table with BC5 and BDE32

hello,
I'd like to create a Paradox table from my application, with 20 fields and an index on the first field named "NOCRIH"
(I use BC++ 5.0 and BDE32 3.0)
When I create the table with a Paradox application I can read the table from my application.
But I can't create this table from my application.
I always got the "invalid index type" message !
I can't find where is the bug in my code
could you help me

here is a part of my code :


  DBIResult                 codeRetour;
  FLDDesc*                  ficheAgent;
  IDXDesc*                  hNoAgent;
  hDBIDb                    hBase;
  .../...


  ficheAgent = new FLDDesc[20];
  memset( ficheAgent, 0, 20 * sizeof(FLDDesc) );

  // Numéro identification CRIH
  //~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  ficheAgent[0].iFldNum = 1;                  // numéro du champ
  strcpy( ficheAgent[0].szName, "NOCRIH");    // nom du champ
  ficheAgent[0].iFldType = fldZSTRING;        // type de champ
  ficheAgent[0].iUnits1 = 6;                  // nombre caracteres

  // Nom
  //~~~~~
  ficheAgent[1].iFldNum = 2;
  strcpy( ficheAgent[1].szName, "NOM");
  ficheAgent[1].iFldType = fldZSTRING;
  ficheAgent[1].iUnits1 = NOMLEN + 1;

  .../...


  hNoAgent = new IDXDesc;
  memset( hNoAgent, 0,  sizeof( IDXDesc ) );

  hNoAgent->iIndexId = 1;
  strcpy(hNoAgent->szName, "NOCRIH");
  hNoAgent->bPrimary = TRUE;
  hNoAgent->bUnique =  TRUE;
  hNoAgent->bDescending = FALSE;
  hNoAgent->bMaintained = TRUE;
  hNoAgent->iFldsInKey = 1;
  hNoAgent->aiKeyFld[0] = 1;
  hNoAgent->bCaseInsensitive = TRUE;


  CRTblDesc tableAgent;
  memset( &tableAgent, 0, sizeof tableAgent );

  strcpy( tableAgent.szTblName, (char*)nomFichierAgent );
  strcpy( tableAgent.szTblType, szPARADOX );
  tableAgent.iFldCount = 20;
  tableAgent.pfldDesc = ficheAgent;
  tableAgent.iIdxCount = 1;
  tableAgent.pidxDesc = hNoAgent;

  codeRetour = DbiCreateTable( hBase,  FALSE, &tableAgent );

After some experimentation, it seems that the Paradox drivers don't support an CaseInsensitive primary index. If you read the help very carefully, you may notice that they only mention this possibility for secondary indices on Paradox tables. But you probably only notice that when you already know the problem.
So the solution should be:

  hNoAgent->bCaseInsensitive = FALSE;

When experimenting, I also noticed that when you use the function DbiAddIndex() to add the index, it returns with the same error code as the DbiCreateTable, but the last error information you can get with the DbiGetErrorInfo() function is not valid, so there is no exptended information about the error.
