Restructure

Restructure

Restructure

(OP)
Hi,
I'm not a programmer, but I have a lot of Pdox (and some PAL) experience.  I'm trying to restructure a table with PAL so that the look up table changes.  My code so far (taken mostly from PAL help) looks like this:

var
     tbl         Table
     tcFlds      TCursor
     dynNewStru  DynArray[] Anytype
     test        Array[] String

endvar

tbl.attach(":project:09 Hardware Product.db")
tbl.enumFieldStruct( "field_struct.db" )

tcFlds.open("field_struct.db" )
tcFlds.edit()

scan tcFlds :
   if tcFlds."Field Name" = "MFGC" then
      tcFlds."_Table Lookup" = "K:\\Net Test\\ProjMgt\\Rolodex.db"
      
;**this works to this point.

      quitLoop
   endif
endscan

tcFlds.endEdit()
tcFlds.close()

dynNewStru["FIELDSTRUCT"] = "field_struct.db"
tbl.restructure( dynNewStru )

The "field_struct" table is enumerated correctly, but I cannot get my original table to restructure.  I do get the following error message:

"Invalid array of validity check descriptors. Table "K:\Net Test\Project Folders\26116\09 Hardware Product.db"   which is the "hard" path of my original table.

Any help is appreciated. I looked at other messages but didn't see anyone with this error.  Like I said, I'm not a programmer, so dumb it down if you can.
Thanks,
brodlang
