Packing Tables

Top Previous Next

To pack a local table, choose Table | Utilities | Pack menu. This removes previously deleted records from the table (Paradox, dBase and FoxPro only).

To pack all DB and DBF tables in a directory, choose Tools | BDE Tools | Pack All Tables....


1. It is recommended to backup the table before packing. You can use Duplicating Tables for this.

2. If you use a FoxPro table with indexes and non-English text data, you cannot pack it in Database Tour.

3. This function works for BDE connections only.
