I am getting an error 'Too Many Files Open'. My config.sys has a line Files=65. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hmmm... that's awefully little information to give us...  Could you tell what you're trying to do when this happens?  Just start DBase, or try to perform certain operations, or what?  Are there any other programs open at the same time?

I know 65 file handles is pretty large, but with other programs open I've seen problems clear up setting it up to 250...

I am running a custom program.  From there, I select an option and the program branches to another program.  After I enter a date, the program calls 3 other program.  When it calls the 3rd program, I get the message "Too many files open'

Woah, yeah, you better kick your files= line up to at least 100, probably something higher; experament to see where it starts working.  Hafta reboot to make the changes take effect...
