Open table not returning all rows

Open table not returning all rows

Open table not returning all rows

I don't usually spend time with PSQL but we have one accounting application that uses the Btrieve backend. I have databases mapped that all share the same system files. We ran the year end process and new tables (datafiles) were created. Some databases in PSQL show the new tables, some don't. I checked and the x$file system table shows 513 rows in properties for two specific databases but when I open the files, one returns 494 rows and the other 513. I assume this is why the new tables aren't mapping up in PSQL. I am sure this is a simple fix but does anyone know how to get it to read the whole file? Is this an index issue of some sort?

Thanks for any help

RE: Open table not returning all rows

I've never seen a situation where a select on X$FILE would return different lists of tables when using the same DDFs.
Are you sure the Database Names point to the exact same DDFs (specifically FILE.DDF)?

Pervasive PSQL does not check for existence of the files before displaying the list of tables.
