Hello.

I have a Pervasive.SQL V10 database with a table that needs a new index.

I can create the index using the CREATE INDEX statement... but does this also populate the index or do I have to run a seperate command to do that?

Thanks.

The CREATE INDEX statement will add the index to both the underlying data file and the DDF definitions making it available in both Btrieve and SQL.  If you add the "IN DICTIONARY" clause to the CREATE INDEX statement, only the dictionary definition is changed and does not affect the Btrieve file.
