Corrupt table/index header - can this be fixed? nomi1 (Programmer) (OP) 24 Oct 06 10:16 I am trying to open a Paradox database and it will not allow me to open the database. The error message is: UNABLE TO OPEN TABLE CORRUPT TABLE/INDEX HEADERIs there any way possible to fix this?Thanks,Naomi RE: Corrupt table/index header - can this be fixed? Miros (Programmer) 24 Oct 06 18:20 What version of Paradox? There used to be a utility included with the program called Table Repair Utility. It should at least be able to get your file fixed enough to export the data to a new, empty copy of itself. RE: Corrupt table/index header - can this be fixed? TonyMcGuire (Programmer) 14 Nov 06 11:28 If everything else fails, you might try making a copy of the .db file ONLY, and try working with it ONLY.You will need to save the data, either way.Before trying this, I think I'd see if Table Repair (likely under Tools menu if Paradox Windows) will work.If critical, you may try Chimney Sweep; it will sometimes repair tables that the native Table Repair can't handle.If critical, start a BACKUP ROUTINE so you always have a copy of the data.
