    Default What are files that begin with: _Code

    I have a number of files that begin with _Code(name).dbf, ddd,ddm, etc. Are these important files or can they be deleted like the files that begin with $$?

    They are probably something done by your application. There are no "_Code" tables that I know if which would have been created by Alpha. Therefore, since whoever developed your application presumably either created them or created a routine that creates them, I would start with the assumption that they are important. (Heck, open them and see what's in them!)

    They may also be the result of some utility. I do that with my AIMS App Analyzer - the data files created by the 'Analyzer' begin with _Aims and, if I recall correctly, the A5Doc files begin with _Doc.

    I have that too! In my case the table is MRO.DBF and there is a table structure called _Codemro.Dbf. I didn't create it.

    But it must be diagnostic. Field names are:

    DATABASE
    TABLE
    TYPE
    NAME
    OBJ_NAME
    EVENT
    CODE
    AS_OF
    USER

    Looking suspiciously like A5DOC but not sure.
