Transgressed handle? Transgressed handle? virgo (Programmer) (OP) 6 Jan 00 11:58 I am now getting this error message? This is a warning, but if anyone does anything else with it, they generally get the 'illegal error' message. Does anyone have any ideas about transgressed handles? RE: Transgressed handle? dgrewe (MIS) 10 Jan 00 07:22 Have not seen that error in a while, but if my memory servers me correctly it is a damaged CDX. It can not be fixed with a reindex or a delete tag and reindex. You must make a copy of the database without any indexes and then create all new indexes. Then replace the orginal database and cdx with the new copy.
