Btreive questions with WinNT and DOS apps?

Btreive questions with WinNT and DOS apps?

Btreive questions with WinNT and DOS apps?

Okay, I am new to this forum and I could use some help. :)

I have a WinNT 4.0 server and Win3.1 or DOS workstations running a custom written software that utilizes Btrieve.

The problem that I have is a random STATUS CODE 2. This is generally only happening during long report generation or record deletion that require lengthy processing time.

I can copy all the programs and data to a local machine and it will run flawlessly.

Any ideas as what I could change to fix this problem?

BTW, This is on a Token-Ring network also.

Thanks for any help you can provide!!

Does anyone know if Btrieve has ODBC drivers for Windows NT?

RE: Btreive questions with WinNT and DOS apps?

To work with Btrieve and ODBC you need a Btrieve Server and a ODBC Driver. I suggest to use Pervasive SQL 2000 as Btrieve Server and Merant ODBC as odbc driver. With this couple you can connect to BTR's
