Where can I obtain a list of dBASE III error codes? by GEMS
Posted: 28 Dec 00

                 DBASE III+ ERROR CODES
1 The following list of error codes and messages has been derived from DBIII+ (- version 1.1) message files and literature. The list is also valid for early versions of Foxplus and versions of Fox Pro up to 2.5. In the latter however, additional codes run into 4 figures.
2 Where the error code appears in parentheses, the error code number is not displayed by DBIII - only the message.
3 A question mark after the code means that the display of the message and code has not been tested by recreating at least one set of the conditions said to cause that error.
