There is a product called ARTEMIS which provides Visual Basic
multi-user local access to the data and index files used by
CA-Clipper (.DBF/.DBT/.NTX) you may want to check that out too.
I haven't use this product but I've seen in action a
product called APOLLO by the same company and I the xBase like
function in it. Soon they will have a C++Builder version which
I'm planning to get so I can have access to Clipper's NTX from C++.

Here's their web site:

>2) Does anyone know how to Open NTX files using CA-DBFAST 2.0?

No it can't be done.. CA-dBFast 2.0 uses only NDX files..
I wish this could be done.
