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.

Looking for your help.
