    Unanswered: Dbase 4 changes

    I have just been asked to make some changes to an existing dbase4 database. Small stuff like changing some column properties/lenghts etc. However, I have never used dbase4 before. Is there a quick and easy way to do this? A sample to change a text (address) column from 40 to 75 chars would be great.

    To change the structure of a DBF file just open it (with USE) and execute MODIFY STRUCTURE . It is very easy to change the properties of existing fields but be careful on the impact that might have on programs that use the DBF file.
