Command REINDEX Foundation
Rebuilds open index files in the current work area.
The index command REINDEX rebuilds the opened index files in the current work area. Following the rebuild, the record pointer is positioned on the first logical record of the controlling index.
REINDEX differs from INDEX ON in that the index files are not recreated. Only the sorting is reconstructed. If the file header of an index file is corrupted, it cannot be repaired using REINDEX. In this case, the index file must be recreated using INDEX ON.
The setting of SET UNIQUE and the FOR condition specified when the index is created using the command INDEX ON are stored in the index file and are used by the command REINDEX.
The function OrdListRebuild() is the functional equivalent of the command REINDEX.
