Starting with version 6.5, 4D allows you to now choose between two index modes: the "traditional" mode, which is the mode used in previous versions of 4D, and the new "fast" mode, which in most cases allows for a significant increase in speed.

If you choose the fast mode, you will be allowed to indicate the usage type for which you want the index to be most efficient: When adding or inserting records or when performing queries.

Advantages Disadvantages
Fast - Speed of construction

- Possible parameter setting
- according to the use
- Consumption of more

- significant memory<
- Access to tables is blocked
- when using this index
Traditional
- Consume less memory
- The modification of the table is
- possible when using this index

- Slower construction
