Btrieve v6.15 - Owner Name

Btrieve v6.15 - Owner Name

Btrieve v6.15 - Owner Name

I need to access some Btrieve v6.15 files which have had the Owner Name set with Access of 0, and of course I do not know the User Name used, as we have since lost the source-code.

Does anyone know any utilities or methods of gaining access to the files or obtaining the User Name that has been used to lock the files?

RE: Btrieve v6.15 - Owner Name

You could be stuck there - maybe btsearch would help?  I wonder if you were to export all your data out of the files recreate the files and import the data back in - are you able to do that?

RE: Btrieve v6.15 - Owner Name

Cheers for the reply, I have solved it and located the Owner Name.

RE: Btrieve v6.15 - Owner Name

Did you solve it by locatng the owner name?

RE: Btrieve v6.15 - Owner Name

May I ask you: Did you use btsearch to find Owner Name? Where can I get a program to find Owner Name?
