ReportMate File Access Search Tables (FAST) Indexing Technology

With the File Access Search Table (FAST) feature you may create new index keys to enable faster ReportMate reports. A   FAST index key gives you similar capabilities to the standard alternate key fields for a SouthWare file.   When you create a ReportMate report and use an index key as the first range the report will process much faster because the report reads only the records that match the index key.   This is typically needed only on files with a large number of records, and tests indicate this can result in reports that run 5 times faster than the same report without an index.
