1.Drop a TTdbTable component onto a form or data module
2.Right-click on it and select the Properties command
3.Define the index and build it.

To create an index using the visual TurboDB Viewer application:

1.Open the TurboDB Viewer from your Delphi tools menu or the start menu.
2.Open a table using the Database/Open/Table command
3.Select the Table/Properties... command
4.Define the index and build it.
