Use the Re-Index File option when you create a new cross-reference on a field that already contains data and you want to re-index the file. The following dialogue is presented when re-indexing a file:
DO YOU WISH TO RE-CROSS-REFERENCE ONE PARTICULAR INDEX? NO// OK, ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO KILL OFF THE EXISTING INDEX? NO// Y (YES) DO YOU THEN WANT TO 'RE-CROSS-REFERENCE'? YES//
All the cross-references for the file will be fired except for bulletins. This dialogue will execute triggers and MUMPS cross-references.
If a file contains more than one cross-reference, you can get a list of them by entering a single question mark ("?") in response to the "DO YOU WISH TO RE-CROSS-REFERENCE ONE PARTICULAR INDEX?" prompt. You can then re-index a single cross-reference or all of the file's cross-references.
