I need to state from the begining that I know NOTHING about dabase development so I need loads of clear assistance.
Here is my scenario;
NW 5 server running pervasive s/w (Btrieve?). DOS & Win95 clients & an old DOS database. NW box is playing up and H/W is no longer supported and my knowledge in NW is fading fast.
Have copied database data to shared folder on W2K server, XP SP2 clients running pervasive v9 workgroup (eval). After some playing around I can get the DOS application work in terms of reading data and printing. The problem comes when attempting to either modify or add data. We get a BTrieve status 46 on the main database file.
I have checked the file attributes and folder security and it appears fine....but as I said, I don't know enough to be sure.
Any suggestions/recommendations welcome. I have not purchased the workgroup edition yet so if I need a different version, let me know.
Many thanks in advance.
