Set Index


The Set Index sets the primary index or query list for a form or browse. The primary index controls which records are viewed, and in what order.

You can place an action script that uses Set Index in the OnInit event of a form to set its filter and order properties.


  1. Make a selection in the Set the primary Index for which window? field. This field will be grayed out unless this action is based on a Form or Browse. The choices are:

    • "Current Form or Browse Window".

    • "Another Form or Browse Window".

  2. If you selected "Another Form or Browse Window", in the Window Name field select either:

    • "Forms"

    • "Browses"

  3. Select one of the listed forms or browses.

  4. Select an index from the Index Name list.

  5. Click Next >.

  6. Optionally modify the comment that describes the action.

  7. Click Finish.
