CLOSE Commands

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Closes various file types.

CLOSE [ALL | ALTERNATE | DATABASES [ALL] | DEBUGGER | FORMAT | INDEXES
   | PROCEDURE | TABLES [ALL]]

Parameters

ALL
Closes all open databases, tables, and indexes in the current and any inactive data sessions and selects work area 1. CLOSE ALL also closes any files opened with the FCREATE( ) and FOPEN( ) low-level file functions. CLOSE ALL does not close a file opened with SET PRINT.

CLOSE ALL also closes the following:

  • Form Designer
  • Project Manager
  • Label Designer
  • Report Designer
  • Query Designer

CLOSE ALL does not close these:

  • Command window
  • Debug window
  • Help
  • Trace window
CLOSE ALTERNATE
Closes an alternate file opened with SET ALTERNATE.
CLOSE DATABASES [ALL]
Closes the current database in the current data session and its tables. If there is no current database, all open free tables, indexes, and format files in all work areas in the current data session are closed and work area 1 is selected.

ALL

Specifies that the following are closed in the current and all inactive data sessions:

  • All open databases and their tables.
  • All open free tables.
  • All indexes and format files in all work areas.

    Work area 1 is selected.

CLOSE DEBUGGER
Closes the Visual FoxPro debugger.
CLOSE FORMAT
Closes a format file in the current work area opened with SET FORMAT.
CLOSE INDEXES
Closes all open index files (both single-entry .idx and independent compound .cdx files) in the current work area. A structural compound index (a .cdx file automatically opened with the table) is not closed.
CLOSE PROCEDURE
Closes a procedure file opened with SET PROCEDURE.
CLOSE TABLES [ALL]
Closes all tables in the currently selected database. CLOSE TABLES closes all free tables in all work areas if a database isn't open.

Include ALL to close all tables in all databases, and all free tables. All databases remain open.

CLOSE TABLES should not be issued when a transaction is in progress; Visual FoxPro will generate an error message.
