Displaying a list of DBFs with DBE info

#1 Post by rdonnay »

Here is a program that will display a directory of your .DBF files.

It will also include information about the DBE that is used to access each file.
The program uses an undocumented eXpress++ function named DC_DbeType() which reads the header of each .DBF file to determine the type of database it is.

Create a folder under \exp20\samples named DBES.

Unzip the attached files into that folder.

Here is a sample screen when running DBETEST.EXE.

The eXpress train is coming - and it has more cars.
