    Default Undelete records

    Could anyone tell me if it is possible to recover records deleted in a table that has not been packed? The records still show up on the table properties screen as "deleted". If it can be done, how do you do it? Thanks.

    Monty,

    Yes, right-click on the table. Select Utilities, then "Undelete Records".

    Monty,

    V5 makes it easy to undelete deleted files ...

    Look at page 257 of the Xbasic reference manual.

    Hope this helps

    Monty,

    It is definitely possible and you will find a description of how in this thread in the V4 forum:

    Sample Routine to Undelete Records

    This is supposed to be built into Version 5 but for the life of me I cannot find it. Can anyone?

    Bill

    So that's where it is. I was looking under operations.

    There is just so much there.

    Thanks,

    Sorry folks, guess I posted to the wrong group, I am running A5v4.5. I am also a novice to say the least, which is why I am in this situation. I appreciate the link in the v4 forum but I still don't understand how to use the files that were written. Perhaps I should just get the upgrade????? If anyone would care to offer any more detail that would be great too! Thanks

    Monty,

    The first example in the V4 thread is just a text file. Copy it to the clipboard.

    Back up your database.
    Back up your database.
    Back up your database.
    Back up your database.

    Do I make myself clear!

    In A5v4 make a new script, call it whatever you want, and past in the contents of the text file.

    When you run the script you will be prompted for a table in a file dialog. Choose the table whose records you want to undelete. Click ok and the script will run and undelete all deleted records in the chosen table.

    Bill

    PS Back up first.
