    Usually this means that your dictionary is messed up. The easiest thing to do is to run a maintenance on the dictionary.

    From the control panel, click on the apps tab, then "maintenance". run a maintenance on the offending database and see what happens.

    Should this not work, or even if it does, rebuild yor indexes. That is also an issue. Pack out any marked records. see what happens. If it is still screwed up, then you may need to go back to a backup of the ddd,ddm,and ddx files.

    Good luck,

    Tom

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    I am new to this, but should all the users be off the network? I noticed that some users do not get the error when launching this app.

    Thanks
