    Can anyone tell me of a database driver for Clipper files that will maintain the clipper indexes?

    What you can do is import into access do changes and export to clipper.

    is horrible I know but best I can do.

    (have you tried the foxpro drivers these might weel work OK).

    Thank for the reply john but I don't believe that your suggestion will work. This VB application is running continuously an adds records to clipper database files that are utilized by a clipper application. Currently I have the VB app. add one record at a time to a DBF file and then shell out a small clipper app that appends the single record to the target DBF and the clipper app is able to maintain the clipper indexes. This is kind of dirty but it works. The VB app is currently running on a dedicated workstation and we are planning to move it to NT application server. This requires me to rewrite the application as a service and I don't think the NT server administrator will appreciate me shelling out to DOS applications on their server. Do you have any Other suggestions??
