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

The descriptions of the table structures are stored in files located in theFILESPEC 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 appropriatereport. The following two tables list the file types and their associatedreports. Some file types require more than one report because there are toomany columns to fit across a single page.

NOTE: All the reports are formatted for landscape printing.
