error found when structure of dbase must be updated

Post by sdj » Sun Dec 15, 2019 9:23 am

Recently when opening my databases I found the structure must be updated before being opened. I have made a copy as advised. But I cannot open the database as I get an error DBISAM Engine Error # 9217 Error reading from the table or backup file 'Repositories'

This occurs in 2 of my databases. The others were OK.
I'd be grateful for help to open these.
Many thanks
Sarah Jordan

Hi,

Please close down Kith and Kin Pro then copy the 3 Repositories files Repositories.blb, Repositories.dat and Repositories.idx from your backup folder back into the current database folder, overwriting the corrupt versions. Start up Kith and Kin Pro and it will notify you that it is going to update the database again - you don't need to do a backup this time. As soon as the update has finished, use "File | Database | Repair" to make sure that the Repositories table has not become corrupt again.
