DBfast error

DBfast error

Post by jer.. » Sat, 02 Dec 1995 04:00:00

        I recently came accross an old program that needs some fixing. It was
done in DBfast, and now I'm getting an error after the fact of
compiling. The program compiles with no errors, but when you run it
then I get this error about the computer not being able to find
err.dat. I checked that err.dat was in the program's directory, and it
was. This is a compiler error. Err.dat is the file used by the
compiler for errors. At this point I haven't found a way to track down
this errors cause. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I've never
used this program and need to fix this quick so I may get on with
life. Thanx in advance.



1. >CA-dBFast error 186?

There is a newsgroup called comp.lang.clipper which is a
CA-Clipper newsgroup but there are also some CA-dBFast
users as well. Feel free to post any CA-dBFast questions
over there.

This is what I found in the help file:
186 - Internal error.

Problem: An internal error has occurred in CAdBFast.
Solution: Document exactly what you were attempting to
accomplish at the moment you received the error and then
please contact Computer Associates Technical Support.
It doesn't tell you much. Does it?

What version are you using?  I'm using CA-dBFast 2.0D1 and I haven't
had this type of error. If you aren't using 2.0D1 I suggest you
get the patch as soon as you can, previous versions had many bugs.
the patch is free and you can get it from CA's ftp site mf.cai.com
directory: caproducts\dbfast

If this doesn't solve the problem then post your code and let
the experts take a look at it.

I hope this helps,
