Re:Copy
exp:
Copy "C:\\Pdox45\\Job\\Joborder"    "D:\\Joborder"
This will copy all table related files,  forms, reports val & px
 How do I copy only the table .val & .px files. I am copying  from one machine
to  another  machine and I don't want to over write the forms & report files.

TIA

Assuming you are using a PAL script:
Copy, copies the entire Family
Tool Copy JustFamily, copies all the Family pieces except the Table
Usuualy used when using an "Answer" or similar table withe the
structure of the origional table.
NEVER copy .PX or .X series or .Yseries files to any table that they
were part of at the time of last modification.
The PX will be created when you Key a table in restructure, The X,Y
series will be created when you create secondary indexes for that
table.
I do not believe that there is a shortcut to "Borrow" VAL settings.

You could use a PAL script and the PALDOS4.5  commands
TableInfo Fields
TableInfo ValChecks
to read the original tables Val checks
and use a script to "walk the menus" setting the destination table
fields  to those settings.

that's a danagerous concept.. if you don't copy the whole family and the table has
been restructed, the other pieces will show as "corrupt" because the header info
won't match..

assuming it *is* a safe transfer, use pkzip, xtree, explorer, dos prompt, etc and
manually pass the pieces you want.. very carefully
