Higher table level required

Posted on 1998-07-30
Last Modified: 2010-04-04
If I open a table in the database desktop and simply try to save it, even without changing anything, I get the error "higher table level required".

What does this mean?
And what can I do about it (because saving is impossible)?

What tables are you using.
What version of bde?
Is it the database desktop of BDE?

I use Paradox tables and the BDE from Delphi 3.0.
Yes, it is the db desktop of BDE.

Dear zoroaster
The BDE default for paradox is not Version 7.This is the reason you get this error.
GO the BDE administrator and change the  paradox driver level to 7.
I had experienced the same problem long back with Delphi 2.
Hope this solves the problem
