That depends on wether the default .DATA .INDEX are used. These extensions can be called anything that you like if coded in the DEFINE cards.

Depends on the above.

Ask your peers where you are what the standards are. This is probably site specific.

Then the procedure is to post your question in the appropriate forum.

To supply your answer to see if it is right or wrong, or can be improved upon.
