    Default Appending Records

    I need some help, so let me lay out the scenario for you to understand what I am asking for.

    1. There are three of us who have A5V7 using the same application that I have written. The only difference between my application and the other two is a few sorting features and a automated numbering script for each entry. I fear this has an effect on what I want to do.

    2. The two satellite computers are entering data into A5V7 and then sending me the DBF and CDX files to append to my master list. Only the program tosses this message up.

    Script:a5_find_missing_fields line 13:
    Unable to find or open memo file

    4. So, is it the difference between the applications or is it a missing file that needs to come along with the DBF and CDX files?

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    The actual text stored in the memo field is kept in a separate file on disk. Look for a file that has the same name as your DBF but ends with an FPT extension.

    OK, let me give that a try. I'll have them send the files to me and try again.

    Thanks
