I can't completely answer the question, but someone who knows Delphi instead of just paradox could finish it.

One of the table properties can be the selection of a particular 'language file' other than the default.  If a table has different language file, the BDE (database engine) needs to know where those language files are located.  This is where I am less informed, in Paradox it was located under the IDAPI directory, such as c:\idapi\langdrv, what does Delphi use?  C:\BDE\Langdrv?

I'm also ill informed for the solution; someplace Delphi is told where the language drivers are located.  In Paradox it was in Windows' Win.ini under the heading
[BORLAND LANGUAGE DRIVERS]
LDPATH=C:\IDAPI\LANGDRV

The table is not (necessarily) corrupt.

hi rainbowsoftware,

maybe the langdriver is not available for you,
try to delete the indexfiles (over Filesystem) and recreate new.
(LangDriver are used to determine the sortorder of the indexes)

I did what Meikl proposed, deleted all indexfiles, then I was able to open the table and could recreate the indexes.
Thanks
