    Hi all - I use the PCFile 6.0 database at work to keep track of client follow-up, mostly because we haven't figured out how to use the agency main data base to do what I want it to do. And since my program represents a small fraction of our budget, it's low on the priority list.

    Anyway, it was working just fine (under Windows XP PSP2, build 2600) until a couple of weeks ago, when I started getting two error messages whenever I tried to run reports (using R&R Report Writer) or access my main follow-up data base: "error 4096, the index may be damaged;" and "error 4097, unable to read record, may be due to a bad index."

    I've tried deleting unnecessary files from the folder, rebuilding the index and deleting the index all to no avail. I remembered the dbu function well enough to find it, but can't figure out how to navigate within in. I need to figure out how to rebuild the index so that I can keep using it until my agency gets around to training us in Echo.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.
