    Default A4V6-"No file handles left"Error message

    I am running A4V6 on an old Win 95 machine machine.
    This database is used infrequently now.
    The motherboard was replaced recently and I had not used the A4v6 DBF since. When I attempt to open a set in the DBF an error message saying "No file handles left" pops up. I remember that when Win 95 was first loaded on this machine there was a cure for this problem but i cannot remember how to do it.
    Anyone know how to fix this?
    Thanx, Ralph Whaley

    check the CONFIG.SYS file and see what number is specified in the

    FILES=

    line. If necessary, increase the number to 100 or 150 and see what happens.

    Thanx for your reply. I saw a fix in another thread and "fixed" the config.sys. Working fine now. Thanx again RW

    What version of Windows are you running?
    Depending on your Windows version you can go into either confg.sys or msconfig.sys and create a line "FILES=99" (no quotes)Save it and Reboot.

    Hi Ralph, I can recommend trying the repair microsoft sql server error: 824 program that automatically eliminates dbf errors. It is a good solution, if you experience any difficulties with dbx files. Hope this helps
