Pervasive 9 *.dat files

Pervasive 9 *.dat files

(OP)
Hi there,

I'm new to Pervasive 9.  This is a simple question really (I hope)  We have a custom app and the files are stored in a directory with .dat files.

My problem is there are no DDF files.  I can connect to some empty databases using Pervasive 9 Control Centre, but those aren't what I need - the data is being stored in these dat files.

What are my options?  ODBC doesn't seem to be working for me, but then again, I haven't a clue what I am doing.

Thanks

Dennis

RE: Pervasive 9 *.dat files

You need to know the record structure in order to access the data.  The DDFs provide this.  If it's a custom app, you should be able to get the record structure and create DDFs.
