USE with indexed .FOC files

USE with indexed .FOC files

I'm wondering if anyone is else having trouble with USE concatenated, indexed, .FOC files under Focus 7.6?

We recently updated from 4.3.x to 7.6.x and our reporting is in now big trouble because we use USE to concatenate multiple .FOC files for different years to allow multi year reporting. The problem seems to relate to indexed fields, when concatentated with the USE some instances of indexed fields are missing from reports. We've REBUILD/REORG'd the files, which I though would resolve any bad index issues, and it doesn't help.  

If anyone has experienced a similar problem I would be very interested to hear from them.

RE: USE with indexed .FOC files

Can you provide an example of HOW you're using the USE command, and what your request looks like? If you access the files individually, do you get all the records?
