Saving DB files..

Posted on 2000-02-16

I want to save some files of a db (pdox) to a diskette. What I do is:
Table.Active := False;
Table.Acitve := True;
The problem is that unless I exit my program and re-enter, recent changes aren't saved to the diskette.
I've tried to use Table.Edit, Table.Post but it didn't work.
Any ideas as to how I can solve this problem?

Hi Omri,

You should call ApplyUpdates on each of your tables to commit cached changes to the DB files.

Oh, you should also call the FlushBuffers method, just to be sure :-)

Thanks, what I needed was FlushBuffers. My DB doesn't use Cached Updates..
