I running a commercial database program, using FoxPro as its base.

Ive managed to open the BDF files ok with MS Access, but Im not sure how to get into CDX & FPT files. What do these abreviations stand for, and how do you get into them?

Tables have a '.CDX' index file with the same name as the table. There may also be a '.FPT' file (FoxPro Text) when a table has a 'notes' field

CDX = Corel Draw compressed drawing

FPT = Memo fields (Microsoft FoxPro)
