    Default Error when running memo check - past end of memo file

    get a long list like the following:

    Record 10988 past end of memo file
    Record 10989 past end of memo file
    Record 10990 past end of memo file
    FPT Header blocks extend past end memo file allowed=27477333 header=228803925
    FPT Free list maps unallocated data (block 228803904,length 6)

    In the app, I look at the memo field of these records and they look fine, no mixed up comments text....

    Any ideas or things to check....BIG thanks.

    Found a couple corrupt memo fields in two records which caused this problem.

    It took a lot of time to find them as we did not want to delete a large number of records. With the corruption the fpt file was 1.7GB but after they were deleted the file dropped to 566KB.....

    Would you explain how you determined which memo records were corrupt?

    as I mentioned it took sometime. We have an archive function that basically copies & appends records to another DBF so we just continued doing the archive until it crashed. Then we knew that the corrupt records were in the last archive records that were moved. Not rocket science but we found them. Once the 2 bad records removed the errors went away.
