Clipper / DBF error

I’m not able to open Clipper application (app is 15 years old) because i’m getting :

error dbfntx/1012 corruption detected

Anyway to fix corrupted dbf besides restore from last backup?

Please advise.

If the database tables have been updated since the last backup then you may lose some data since the last backup (hopefully the backup was very recent).

I think that the database should be OK and the problem is with at least one of the indexes. If the program is well written the index should be tr-created if the index does not exist.

Find where the location of the .NTX files are located and move them to a temporary directory.

If that does not work then try restoring the index files from the backup.

Using Clipper brought back fond memories and I am intrigued about your application.
