What is an .VLD file?
.VLD file extension is created by The Database Managers, Inc.. .VLD has been classified as Various data Files.
.VLD is DataFlex variable length datafile
The vld file extension is mainly related to DataFlex. This file type was introduced in DataFlex 3.0.
When VLD files are used, the VLD file holds the real data and the DAT file simply holds a pointer to the location in the VLD file where the data resides.
Therefore, when backing up or restoring a datafile, it's vitally important that the DAT and VLD (and HDR) be kept in synchronization with each other.
The VLD file without a DAT file is completely useless, just like an index file (K*) would be without its DAT file.
