How to 'refresh' (kill and recreate) a realtionship?

Hi All -

I have a possibly corrupt DB that exhibits this problem: when I search on the "bill-to" orgainization name in my Invoicing database, the search hangs... forever. I have to force-quit out of FM to recover. In other words, the when I search on the realted field, the search fails.

I found when I replaced the relationship with a new one, that does the same thing (i.e Bill-To ID in Invoicing matches Bill-To ID in that Invoice), all is well - the searches are fast.

But, to avoid having to hand-replace every field that used to use the old relationship with the new-relationship field, is there a way to 'refresh' the relationship in place? See, if I just kill off the old relationship and make a new one, all the related fields show "table missing" and I'm looking at a giant pile of work.

Or, does some FM wizard know why this strange infinite-search hang is happening? Corrupt index, perhaps? Any help would be most totally appreciated.

To be honest isn't you description getting me much further than you probably are performing seaches on values actually living a relation away. They can only be unindexed - unless you use another technique.
