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;


Cheers,
JB
