Invalid Data File - Re thread # 192-165042

Invalid Data File - Re thread # 192-165042

(OP)
I am trying to convert the data file again after adding extra fields. The clarion convert program doesn't work, shows error invalid data file each time, and when I tried tpsfix as suggested by ShankarJ, the new fields get populated with garbled parts of the memo filed in the database.

I am not sure what to do now.

(OP)
I managed to fix the problem, moved the memo field to the top of the file declarations in the dictionary. Then redid the conversion.
