btrieve error 11

btrieve error 11

RE: btrieve error 11

11: The specified filename is invalid

This Status code indicates that the filename specified does not conform to file naming conventions. Make sure the filename is valid for the environment.
Status code 11 can also have the following meanings in server-based versions of Btrieve:

·    An attempt was made to open a file that has .^^^ as its extension. This extension is reserved for Btrieve to use during a continuous operation. (Continuous operations are used only in the server-based Btrieve environment.)
·    The data buffer for a Begin or End continuous operation is not setup correctly.

RE: btrieve error 11

Also make sure you are not using long filenames/directories or names with spaces.
