When records are added to a database using a different database application, Approach's index file (.adx) is not updated, and therefore Approach cannot access the new records. The indexes can be rebuilt by closing and reopening Approach. Once this is done the new data can be seen. Apart from this inconvenience, adding data to a database using other applications while Approach is open, may also increase the possibility of index files becoming corrupt. It's therefore not recommended.
