I have created a bunch of dbase databases using OO. Everything is working correctly, but everytime I create a new table a .dbt file is created in addition to the .dbf file. What are these .dbt files and do I need to worry about moving them when I move around my .dbf files?

Thanks

Chad

Hi Chad,
The dbt files contain the text of any memo fields that you have created in your dbase database. dBase stores memo field text in a binary format in a separate file that bears the dbt extension.

PS. Sorry, I forgot to mention that if you ever transfer your dBase database to another computer or another location on your computer, you also have to copy the dbt files to the same location, otherwise the text within them won't show up in the database.
