Table Structures of .dbc, .frx, .lbx, .mnx, .pjx, .scx, and .vcx Files

The descriptions of the table structures are stored in files located in the FILESPEC directory. The FILESPEC directory contains two projects: 30spec.pjx and 26spec.pjx:

  • 30spec.pjx contains tables and reports that document Visual FoxPro version 3.0 table files.
  • 26spec.pjx contains tables and reports that document FoxPro version 2.6 table files.
To see the descriptions for any table structure, print the appropriate report. The following two tables list the file types and their associated reports. Some file types require more than one report because there are too many columns to fit across a single page.

NOTE: All the reports are formatted for landscape printing.
