The TABLE.ERASE() method removes the specified table or set file ( Filename ), its production index file, and its data dictionary from disk. as a safeguard, you must set the Confirmation_Flag parameter to TRUE (.T.) to perform the Erase operation. This method is the preferred way for erasing a table file and all its support files. Erasing a table file with the FILE.REMOVE() method can also be done; however, you will need to clean up any remaining support files yourself. To remove the table from the Control Panel, use FILE_DROP_FROM_DB().
This script prompts the user for a table to erase, erases the table, and then checks to be sure the table has actually been erased properly.
filename = ui_get_file("Erase:","Tables (*.DBF)","","X") if filename = "" then end end if table.erase(filename, .T.) result = file.exists(filename) if result = .F. then ui_msg_box("Erase", filename + " erased.") else ui_msg_box("Erase:Error", "Erase failed.") end if
