U kno, bro, U R on the right path - or rather put me on that one:

what I did was (omitting the small details like full path and such)
COPY TO TEMP.DBF
SELECT * FROM TEMP.DBF INTO CURSOR CO_STATE READWRITE
USE IN TEMP
ERASE TEMP.DBF

and - holly smoke! It bloody worked!

Thank you, colleagues!

Regards,

Ilya
