Dear,

I'm using Delphi 4, Paradox 7 and Novell 4, some times in my application raise a follow error:

Corrupt file other than header.

BUT the table that occurs the erros is a temporary table.
(i.e. _qs*)

What´s going on?

Hi,

You have to set 'LOCAL SHARE' to 'TRUE' ind the BDE-Configuration
programm. All machines have to use a config-File where this is true.
Best idea would be that all machines use the same idapi.cfg file on the
network server.
Moreover you have to set the path to the pdoxusrs.net file in the config
utility for all users to the same directory path. Only the drive name may
be different. See Borland BDE-page for further information.

Hello,

This is the best paradox repair utility Ive tried yet , and its freeware with source.But you still need the Tutility Dll found at Borland site.

Also LocalShare in BDE Admin should be set to true to add more stability. Or you can call
DBISaveChanges(Table1.Handle)
on the AfterPost event of all your Tables ,which is the same thing as LocalShare=true but without lock files.

Goodluck.
