i have run in to two problems

1- when compressing a file the relationships are severed and have to be rebuilt by hand. is ther any way around this?

2- i recovered a dmaged file and rebuilt all the relationships. in a related file i ahve a portal with a field from the master file, that one imported correctly. i also have a calulation [sum] of the imported field. when i go to rebuild the calculation in field definitions i am told the related field cannto be found - even though it is in the portal

TIA

You must be leaving something out. Compressing a file doesn't do anything to relatonships. Are you compressing the file, then re-opening the solution using (for example) Contacts Copy.fp5? Of course that won't work.

After compressing a file, if it is saved as Filename Copy.fp5, you woud normally close the solution, trash Filename.fp5, Rename FileName Copy.fp5 to Filename.fp5 and start the solution again.
