Can't open file

Can't open file

I have Approach 9.5 and am trying to open .apr file.
I get this message.  "Approach has caused an error in DBASE.DLL.  Approach will now close."

I had a similar problem in July and you suggested several things.  There are no .oyz files this time.  I tried the backup.  That didn't help.  I copied the .dbf and .dbt files.  I can get them open in File Manager and Internet Explorer.  But, when I try to open it in Approach, the files are not in the folder.  

Any suggestions?  Thanks for your help.    

RE: Can't open file

Try opening each dbf directly in Approach and compressing it, discarding the new apr each time. Then see if you can open the problem apr.
