When I copy the file to my local drive, the indexing works OK.

First let's clarify whether you are using the native DBF and NTX's
and not any add-on drivers. The so called RDD's which definitely is an
issue for some.
For reporting purposes, with the need for temp indexes and temp
files, I do the same and have found no probs at all. But the process
works for one workstation and not the other????
Have you checked the status of the particular workstation's Hard
Drive? Try CHKDSK/F or use norton utilities to diagnose the Hard drive.
Sometimes the hard drive failure do give bizarre results especially
when using third party libs or linkers. Maybe it's actually the SWAP
file that the dynamic linker is trying to create which bombs and not
the indexing. Check for viruses while you're at it also...
Damn those viruses!!!
