Urgent Need for a Paradox ODBC Driver that allows modifications
I need a Windows ODBC driver that will allow deletions to a paradox table used in a Delphi system.
I don't have Delphi installed, the guy who wrote the system died.
The company got a "Table Full" error message. I think there is something to do with block sizes.
I have copied the table at fault to my system and now need to repair it. What do I need to do?
I looked at the table and there are a lot of records that are years old and can now be deleted. Also there are some recent entries that need to be deleted as the seem corrupted. There is a field called Number that appears to be a key to this table, the recent entries contain values with huge gaps, so I think I need to reset these values. I need to find the table that drives these values.
I connected an Access database to the table but the driver will not allow deletes.
The system was written a long time ago (about 1999).
I don't know Delphi and I don't know anybody who does.
There's a utilitty at http://sourceforge.net/pro
Here are some BDE utilities from Borland, I'll afterwards talk about some specific ones:
There's also "Paradox Repair Utility" by borland which you can get at
(I tried to upload it but this silly utility didn't like what was in the ZIP
There's also the Paradox Tables Check and Repair utility which I think when I downloaded the executable didn't work so I had to recompile it, so I'm attaching my recompiled utility as a jpg - rename it to an EXE to run it
