Property of

DBFIndex, Index


An Index object's descending property determines whether the sort order for a key field is descending, the default setting, or ascending. In a "descending" order, character keys are ordered from Z to A, and then z to a; numeric keys are ordered from highest to lowest; and date keys are ordered from latest to earliest (a blank date is higher than all other dates).
