OLE Linking

OLE Linking

OLE Linking

I am using Pervasive SQL and Btrieve. I have a lot of OLE links to documents, and they were all working fine. I have been using Windows 98 workstations and am now upgrading to 2000 with some XP. The links are now not working on the new workstations. If I resave the link it works fine.

Has anyone heard of this problem, or a resolution. I was hoping there would be a batch process of some sort that I could use, since there are thousands of files.

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

RE: OLE Linking

What do OLE links have to do with Pervasive/Btrieve?  Are you storing OLE links in a Pervasive database?  Are you using a third party application (like Maximizer or Peachtree or ???)?  If so have you contacted the vendor of the application?  Btrieve/Pervasive is just a database engine.
