Dbase program error handling

I have a Dbase utility program that reindexes files once a day.  It suddenly has been stopping on an error that says "language driver" mismatch and prompts you to fail, open read-only or reindex.  It always reindexes fine and I can't seem to resolve the language driver issue.

So how do you programatically trap or respond to this error and force the reindex without having any user interaction?

Such error message should be documented by the utility vendor. The only option when no documentation exists probably is to avoid conditions in which the error appears.

There is no vendor.  The utility program is just some DBase code, nothing third-party.  And the code simply calls these command for several tables.

USE EXTDTAIL INDEX EXTDTAIL
PACK
CLOSE ALL

USE EXTHEAD INDEX EXTHEAD
PACK
CLOSE ALL

USE EXTKBAN
PACK
CLOSE ALL

OK, and what says Dbase documentation about this error?

You should check code page and Windows regional settings used for this program. Do you use some non-US collation or order? Do you have all necessary NLS packs installed?

The solution could be following:
You should bring up the dBASE SE Desktop Properties dialog. If dQuery is open you must first close it. Then with focus at the command or navigator windows, the menu "Properties" should be displayed -- select this, and then select "Desktop Properties". In this dialog, make sure that the following settings are done:

Country tab, the Century checkbox should be checked (this is like typing SET CENTURY ON, and is used to display all four digits of the year in dates), and you may want to set Alert on mismatch off (uncheck it)

An alternate solution is  SET LDCHECK OFF issued in Command window. More info is here: http://www.dbase.com/Knowledgebase/faq/language_drivers.asp
