Paradox 10 table structure?


I was just reviewing the Paradox Table Specs in your Paradox developer reference area. I found specs through Paradox 7 only, and I'm really interested in Paradox 10. Is it available?


No. Actually Paradox 7 "table structure" is the latest very flexible table structure. The only table structures are 1...3.x, 4.x, 5, and 7. No such thing as a Paradox 9 or 10 or 13 table structure.

correction.. the available table levels are 3, 4, 5, and 7.. there *is* a five.. it's the first one to add the 16k and 32k blocks, and reverse indexes..

Thanks Steve. I updated the FAQ. And...of course there is a Paradox 5 table structure and it was very important too. Silly me. I kept getting these questions about Paradox10 or 11 or 12 table format so my main point of that FAQ was to clarify that the Paradox table specification did not change with each version and I posted my answer a bit too quickly. I've documented these table specifications so many times. Here is my main paradox table specification page:

Paradox Table Specifications

By the way, you'll see in my Paradox Table Specifications that descending indexes were added with the Paradox 7 table structure, not 5.

the part that I always loved was Borland stating that a table could have "up to two billion records per file".. sure, if each record is just an unkeyed A1 field.. really useful, huh? (g)
