RE: read databuffer return

It's just the raw record from whatever file you made a call against. You'll have to parse the data if it's string and you'll need to know the field lengths of each type of data. That info is usually coded into Btrieve apps and not all of it is in a file -stat which only defines the indexes.

I sugggest that you get a copy of the Pervasive.SQL 2000 SDK which is freely available for download from the Novell site, from the Pervasive site (minus the ActiveX control), or for purchase which gets you some voice support as well. It should have all the info you need to figure out how to handle the returned data.
