Removes a tag or tags from a compound index (.cdx) file. There are two versions of the syntax.

DELETE TAG TagName1 [OF CDXFileName1] [, TagName2 [OF CDXFileName2]]... 


TagName1 [OF CDXFileName1] [, TagName2 [OF CDXFileName2]] ...

Specifies a tag to remove from a compound index file. You can delete multiple tags with one DELETE TAG by including a list of tag names separated by commas. If two or more tags with the same name exist in the open index files, you can remove a tag from a specific index file by including OF CDXFileName.

ALL [OF CDXFileName]

Removes every tag from a compound index file. If the current table has a structural compound index file, all tags are removed from the index file, the index file is deleted from the disk, and the flag in the table's header indicating the presence of an associated structural compound index file is removed. Use ALL with OF CDXFileName to remove all tags from an open compound index file other than the structural compound index file.
