.mdx file extension
- 1. MapServer database index file.
For more information see:
- www.graticule.com - Providers of MapServer.
- 2. dBase index file. Each .mdx file will normally be paired with a
.dbf file with the same name (but it does not
follow that all .dbf flies will have an acompanying .mdx file.)
A .mdx file may be referred to as a "multiple index file".
.mdx files were first used by dBase IV, and replaced the use of .ndx files used in earlier versions of the database. .mdx files are maintained and updated automatically by dBase (whereas the older .ndx files had to be manually maintained by issuing a REINDEX command.)
Can you add to this? Do you know of any applications not already listed which will work with .mdx files, view .mdx files or open .mdx files? Are you able to contribute any additional reference information or file format information about .mdx files or have you spotted any errors or omissions? If so please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org - Thank you.
