Invalid Dates

Is there any way for me to run a query to find invalid dates in a table so that I can correct them?


RE: Invalid Dates

No.  If the date is invalid, ODBC won't be able to work with it.  THere are a couple of utilities for fixing bad dates on the Pervasive Component ZOne (http://www.pervasive.com/componentzone).  You could also write (or have written) an application that uses the Btrieve API to target your data files specifically and fix the bad dates.  

Fixing the dates is only part of the solution. You need to make sure that no more invalid dates get into the data file.
