Can't access btrieve db with 2000i control panel

Can't access btrieve db with 2000i control panel

Hi- I am trying to access a legacy btrieve db which I have accessed sucessfully with third party apps. I have ddfs in one directory, files in another; I have added the database, mapped the files, created a dsn, and can view the file / table names from the control panel. But I can't open the tables, get the error:

ODBC Error: SQLSTATE = S1000, Native error code = 0
Unable to open table: PATIENTS.
The specified filename is invalid(Btrieve Error 11)

The file paths in the ddf are incorrect, but since I mapped the datafiles directory, I want the control panel to ignore them. How might I do this? If I manually change the file paths I can open the files sucessfully.
