EllenG Posted February 13, 2005 Share Posted February 13, 2005 I posted this about 2 weeks ago, but I really want people to see it again, and maybe SOMEONE can help me! The original post is "I'm Desperate" (2/5/05). The problem first appeared for me when I was testing the import for my new release of my FM6 runtime application. In the main (HERD) database, I got the message: "Sorry, FileMaker is unable to read the disk this file is on." It would not allow me to continue and it corrupted the new file (and I was not able to recover it.) Please note, this is my 3rd release of the software and never had this problem before. After playing around, I thought maybe it had to do with the size of the file (approx 2.5MB with no records). I created another database with field definitions only (no layouts or relationaships) and changed to import into that file and then import one record at a time into the HERD db. OK, that seemed to work. I have not had a recurrence of the problem... UNTIL (This gets reaslly scary now!) I had an error in the current version of my FINANCIAL database. Since I have clients using that for their taxes, and could not wait for the new version, I sent out a fix if requested. This is a small file (only about 700kb.) I just got an email from one of my clients that they got this same error on the Financial import...!!!! The import works as follows: I have the user rename the Financial file to Financial_Old, and copy the new Financial file into the solutions folder. When the new Financial file is first opened, it imports the records from Financial_Old. One other note: I had to replace the client's file 3 times (my error for not testing it thoroughly). The first 2 times, the import worked just fine. (I ran it about 4 times and did not get the error.) So, I apologize for the novel, but I'm going bonkers. Any IDEAS?? Thanks.
