I have a some clipper generated DBF with index(NTX) and data is password
crypted.
I want to write an application with VB to read data from above tables.
What is the read map?
thanks

Hi,

You will probably want to use the Advantage OLE DB Provider, or if you are
using VB.NET, you can use the Advantage .NET Data Provider. In either case,
with NTX indexes, you will need to set up an Advantage Data Dictionary and
add the tables and indexes to the dictionary so that the indexes will be
opened by the OLE DB or .NET Data provider. If you do not use the
dictionary, then it is not possible to specify the index files when opening
the table with one of the providers.
