Chapter 19. Using External Data > Understanding Windows Registry Settings

Understanding Windows Registry Settings

Each ISAM driver has a separate key in the Windows Registry. These keys are located in the appropriate ISAM driver in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Jet\ 3.5\ISAM Formats section of the Registry. These keys are used to configure the driver after initialization. As you can see in Figure 19.9, the Setup program has created keys for several data sources. If you look at a specific data source (in this case, FoxPro 2.6), you can see all the settings that exist for the FoxPro 2.6 driver. The IndexFilter is set to FoxPro Index(*.idx;*.cdx), for example. At times, you will need to modify one of the Registry settings to customize the behavior of the ISAM driver; this is covered later in this chapter in the section “Looking At Special Considerations.”
