Command CREATE Foundation
Creates and opens an empty structure extended DBF file.
The file command CREATE creates an empty structure extended file with the name <cFilename> and opens it in the current work area. A structure extended file contains in its records the field definitions for another file. The fields of a structure extended file are shown in the following table:
|Field name||Field type||Field length||Decimal places|
New databases can be created from the records of a structure extended file. This is done using the command CREATE FROM. Databases can also be created using the function DbCreate(). This function uses a two dimensional array instead of a file for information on the field definitions.
The function CreateExtStruct() is the functional equivalent of the command CREATE.
