Drops (deletes) an existing index from a table.


DROP INDEX <table_name>.<index_name> | PRIMARY


Use DROP INDEX to drop, or delete, the index <index name> from <table name>. For DBF tables <index name> must be the name of a tag in the production index.

The PRIMARY keyword is used to delete a primary Paradox index. For example, the following statement drops the primary index on EMPLOYEE.DB:

DROP INDEX "employee.db".PRIMARY

To drop any dBASE index, or to drop secondary Paradox indexes, provide the index name. For example, this statement drops a secondary index on a Paradox table:

DROP INDEX "employee.db".NAMEX
