Where can i get an ODBC driver that will read DBF files with NTX intexes. Microsoft's DBASE driver will read .ndx indexes only.

You won't get Clipper file support from Microsoft.  What are you using as a front end?  

This product pretty much covers the gamut and has an ODBC drive among other things:
CodeBase6:

Merant, formerly InterSolv:

mrorph,  thanks for your prompt answer.

I have looked all aver these sites, and downloaded a few trial versions, but havent been able to get an odbc that will read the clipper files and indexes.

Do you have a more specific address ?

PS : The odbc should be shareware or freeware.

Hmmm...

Now that is strange.  I have used intersolv's drivers and CodeBase to read ntx's.  

Again, what is your front end?  VB, Delphi, C++?  There are some tools that are not nearly as expensive that are native to Delphi and C++.

I have no idea where you are going to find a freeware/shareware ODBC driver.  Those things are a real bear to write.

I was in a rush yesterday, so i just scanned over them, somehow or other from intersolv, i was just getting a btrieve ODBC. Will try the site again and give u the points if it works.

OK, front end is a code generator called Genexus, that generates Visual Basic.
