How can I restructure a Dbase IV table. I know that there is an BDE Function
dbiDorestructure, but this is for Paradox tables only.
I coult create a new table ( different name ) and copy every record ( if
possible ) to the new table.Delete and rename the tables.
Is there an other solution?

I am using Delphi 1.0

Thanks,
Didier

I must use DBase tables.
I want to make such a tool by myself and the utils on the Delphi Super Page are without source code.

You can use dbiDoRestructure for DBase tables...there are some functions that are inherintly for Paradox only.
