Now, I haven't tried this, but I've read that under DAO if you define the database in an opendatabase function as "DBASEII", then when you append an index to the indexes connection, it is supposed to know enough to creat both the index and the .inf file that associates the index to the .dbf.  There is no comparable function available for a pack, however.  You still have to use an outside program module for that.  

One of the most efficient methods for working with these functions should you find that you need to use and outside program is the DBLIB library for quick basic.  Rather than requiring a meg or more of program code to perform simple functions to pack and index, this library combined with the QBasic compiler made small, fast program code that could easily and quickly be shelled out to from VB to perform necessary functions for you.
