file btrieve probleme

file btrieve probleme

(OP)
hi
i have database btrieve under novell 3.12
and after shut down electric
all files are good only one i can edit the file but i have lost some recors interval and i cant edit or insert the lost records in the interval lost, only on the last.
how i can fix this file
thanks

RE: file btrieve probleme

First, what error are you getting?  Once you get the error, you can determine what needs to be done to fix the file.  For example, if you are getting a status 2, a rebuild of the file should fix it.  If you are getting a different error, you need to post it.

RE: file btrieve probleme

If you've lost records after a power failure, those records are most likely gone as they weren't written to disk.  
If you've got a backup with those records, you should restore from backup.  If you don't have a backup, you'll need to recreate the records.

ok thanks
but how to insert all those record lost if i can not insert in the interval lost just in the end of file
and if you can tell me wich software can do it.
software edit and browse btrieve data.
thanks

RE: file btrieve probleme

The software you use is the software that's generating the Btrieve files.  Btrieve files do not keep any structure or field information so there's no generic browse/edit software.

It may be a problem with the page allocation table.  I've seen a database that did not report an error but lost the records.  I don't like to leave my email address here but visit www.nssdd.com if you want and send me an email with the file from there I'll take a look.

Thanks,
Gil
