Attached FoxPro 2.5 table index ".cdx" problem!

I have a FoxPro 2.5 table ,Customer.dbf.  I have an Index "Customer.cdx" with 10 indexes in that file. When I attach the table to Access 2.0 it ask for an index file 'Customer.cdx' & it then asks for 'Select Unique Record Identifier'. It only displays 1 of the 10 indexes, Cust-New, and doesn't show the 9 other indexes.
I need one of the other index, 'Customer-I',  found within that Index file 'Customer.cdx'.
What am I doing wrong? Why aren't all 10 indexes showing up in the selection box? How can I use that index?
Also I'm unable to make any changes to the index file, Customer.cdx, as it is used by other programs.

Thank You.

Unfortunately, it is not possible for Access to use an index that contains a complex expression, such as fld1+function(fld2), etc.

See Q122561 on MS Knowledge base if that is your problem.  There is no way around this, since the actual function is contained in Foxpro code, and not available to MS Access.
