Getting the Dictionary

Getting the Dictionary

Getting the Dictionary

Howdy All -

Is there anyway to get a report of everything in the dictory on my current Pervasive machine?   I'm working on a migration to new hardware and the physical path is going to change, I already ahve some other dictionary issues so I'd like to approach my software vendor (who usually does all the work on the system) about specific things which will need to change.


RE: Getting the Dictionary

By dictionary, do you mean a database name?  If so, you can look at the Pervasive Control Center at the properties of the Database Name to find the directory where the DDFs and the data files are located.  

You could also issue a "SELECT * FROM X$FILE".  That will list, among other things, all of the tables and the files defined in the database.
