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

Definition

Memo file created by Alpha Five, a desktop, web, and mobile application IDE; contains any memo fields that are created in the .DBF file; only exists when a memo field is defined in a DBF file; linked to a DBF file, any changes made to the DBF file will alter the FPT file.

More Information

The FPT file is created by Alpha Five because tables in DBF files have width limitations on how many characters can be in a column. The memo format in FPT files is not limited, they can have any alphanumeric (a string of data with numbers and letters) length. So Alpha Five creates a ten character field in the DBF file that references the memo location in the linked FPT file that contains all of the data for that record in the table.

NOTE: In 2013, Alpha Five became Alpha Anywhere.

Common FPT Filenames:

[Name of your table].fpt - When a memo field is defined in your table, the FPT file will be created with the same name as your table.
