Hi Friends,
I am getting an error "ASSERTION FAILED 50242: FILE ASSOCIATED WITH GIVEN PAGE ID IS INVALID OR NOT OPEN". If I tried to rebuild the database it is not allowing the operation. I am using Sql anywhere 5.5.02 build #1495 (16usr). Please suggest me by what all way I can recover the fault pages. I am not using log file with the db file.

You have not told on what OS the sql anwhere is.There is a problem with sql anywhere running on win95.You os has to be 32 bit.Even on nt it does not allow some database to be loaded because of page size will creating it.If you have an pb4 with watcom sql dbms will solve your problem.Take the file and rebuild the database on it with a log.If you have not made the log make a log of some xyz file with .log extension.This will solve you problem
