 What's a .px file?

I have noticed that everytime a table.db is updated the date on the
corresponding table.px file also changes. What is a .px file?
If I move the table.db file does the table.px file have to go with it?
Thanks,
John

The .px is the index file. I suggest you use Pdox to copy tables or else
make sure you always copy table.* - other objects such as Forms,
reports, Valchecks, settings may be present as separate files in the
'family'.

.PX is a primary index file. It is used for handling the key fields in
your table and is one part of the table. To be on the safe side,
use the tools provided in Pdox to move or copy tables. That way all the
necessary files will be handled.

The px file contain the indexes of the table, each time you change a record
in the table,
the indexes are modified too.
