Paradox Export from Access

Hi All

I have written a middleware application for IBM-U2 to a bookkepping
Software which is using paradox-tables

I can Import everything, convert it to the bookkepping-format but...

The Problem is that the Journal.db ( the bookkeeping lines) has not
index and it has a .mb file attached for graphic (which is not used,
but the paradox.table has 5 field for it).

If I export the Access table to Paradox this 5 fileld are vanishing
and the bookkepping-software doesn't work anymore.

Does anybody know a posibility to to make a true-paradox file wihout
Delphi?

I don't find any reference for the BDE on my System to produce
Paradox-files

P.S.: ODBC doesn't allow me to ALTER the table

it looks looks like nobody has an answer

My own solution if somebody else get's the same problem:
I use a fresh installed bookkeeping file-set as master.

if I need to change the table, I read the original into a tmp-file,
change the necessary data in the tmp, delete the original paradox
files and copy the master and then I insert the tmp-file into it.

Not elegant, but it works
