Hi Danko,

This is the case with all xBase tables (dBase, Clipper, FoxPro).  A delete
only marks the record as deleted.  The record can later be undeleted using a
Recall command.

The only way to physically remove records marked from deletion from within a
.DBF table is to issue a 'Pack' on the table.

Best regards,
