Internal Consistency Error

Internal Consistency Error

Internal Consistency Error

Has anyone else experienced an internal consistency error message while using VFP 6?  If so how did you fix it?

I have an application that is downloading data from a Sybase SQL Server and on a regular basis I get an Internal Consistency Error message while appending data into a foxpro table.  I have tried recreating all of the tables, databases and remote views involved without any success.  The only remotely successfull thing we tried was we deleted the tables being appended to and then recreated them before appending data, however I just made some changes that require a certain set of data to be kept between downloads.  Unfortunately this change brought the problem back.

Any and all help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Internal Consistency Error

1. Recompile the software.. this could solve the problem.. if the error is caused by an internal consistency check in the Visual FoxPro expression evaluator. This might be caused by a damaged Visual FoxPro object code file.

2. A form (.scx) or visual class library (.vcx) file is closed but the method and event code that is stored in it is still in use can also cause this error.

3. Internal SQL pass-through error can also create this. May be you can try rebuilding this SQL pass-through and look into the code more deeply.

4. Rebuild the index by closing the database, deleting the index file , and reopening the database. (Simple reindexing will make the problem surface again).

Wish you good luck


RE: Internal Consistency Error

Hi Dan,

There are several different Internal Consistency Errors(ICE). Search the KB for "Internal Consistentcy Error" and foxpro and several will surface. If you are unable to locate one relevant to your situation, direct your question to MS Tech Support.

You could also coordinate with the orignator of: Thread184-66487. He seems to be having this issue as well.
