Lightning Query Optimization is a feature that Alpha Anywhere activates to increase the speed at which queries are run against DBF tables. By using information contained in the indexes you have created, Alpha Anywhere can dramatically speed up queries.
To take advantage of this time-saving feature, both the query you design and the pre-existing indexes must be compatible with Lightning Query Optimization. The following sections explain this compatibility.
