Unknown

File format categories include Binary, Text, XML, and Zip. The format of this file type has not been determined.

Definition

Index file utilized by Alpha Five, an IDE for Web application developers; contains table index data referenced by Alpha Five to find table records; created when index fields in the table are defined and intended to order lists in your data file; can only hold index names up to ten characters long with no spacing; similar to .DDX, .ALX, and .ASX Alpha Five index files.

More Information

When backing up your data, verify that the CDX file is being saved as well. Otherwise, when the .DBF and .FPT file data is only restored, the CDX file will hold lists from old data and Alpha Five will have to create new lists for the restored data, which may take time.

NOTE: In 2013, Alpha Five became Alpha Anywhere.

Common CDX Filenames:

[Name of your table].cdx - When a table is created and the index field is defined, the CDX file will be created with the same name as your table.
