Paradox indexes

I have a problem with Paradox indexes. I must delete all without copy table , then recreate it. I know that I can delete secondary indexes , but how I can delete primary index. I have a key field in AutoInc field , when I copy records to new table this fields has different value from first because I sometimes delete records :}
OK:} I want know how I can delete primary index in my program :}:}:} See ya :}

I seem to remember that if you recreate the index it overwrites the existing index.  I may be wrong, but have you tried it?

The help file says you can't use TTable.DeleteIndex to delete a primary index, but in fact you can.  I have just tested the following, and it works:

  tblTest := TTable.Create(Self);
  try
    tblTest.DatabaseName := 'C:\Temp\Temp';
    tblTest.TableName := 'Test';
    tblTest.DeleteIndex('');
    tblTest.AddIndex('', 'AutoField', [ixPrimary]);
  finally
    tblTest.Free;
  end;

Hi Waldek

If you have tested DeleteIndex for primary indeces, then you can grade this answer.
