Select Index

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page


The Select Index dialog allows you to specify an existing index to use for the sort order of the section.  This option is only available for the primary DBF table in a data source.  Specifying an index can reduce the time required to generate a report since the sort order doesn't have to be created by ReportPro.




You can enter the index file name directly or click on the button to the left of the Index File Name edit to be presented with a standard File Open dialog.


If the database driver you are using supports compound indexes, you must also specify the Index Tag name.  To select the index tag, click the button to the left of the Index Tag edit and you will be presented with a list of tags in the selected index file.  If you do not specify an Index Tag name, then the table will be accessed in record order.
