Hello People!

I just today (after months of flawless serving) I am getting the message that "Datebase not open"

Unable to prcoess your request as the databse is not open?!

I have triple checked and DB is open and available when access with FM...but not on the web and is the only one out of 8 being server? What could have gone bad?

Any ideas or recollections about this issue? frown.gif

Thank you!

ok Garry now ur scaring me smile.gif

"may become"...or "was" corrupt?

IOW cloning the DB and importing record will be much like 'manually re-indexing'? Is that the deal?

if this is truth then you have just Opened another can of candy & inspiration!

Many thanx!

Hi Garry (and all)

I am struggling with the same issue above - getting the "database not open" message. I moved the database files from a PC to a MAC (for data entry) then back to a PC. The databases open, I can add data, but cannot access the databases with the browser. I have tried copying then renaming, recovering the database, etc. I did export the data, but Im not sure how exactly to clone a blank layout as mentioned above. I could delete all records in a copy, but I wasn't sure that is what you suggested. BTW - I had old copies of the databases (with the same name and same layouts) working just fine. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike
