Sudden data loss in Paradox table

Hia,

I have a customer been using some application for about one year,
suddenly some of the records were randomly lost though he has no access
to tha table so he can't change anything...The application seemd to be
working perfectly and now suddenly some data were lost. Anyone ever
expericed a similar thing with Paradox tables? If so, what caused that?

Regards,
Ayman Mackouly

 

Re:Sudden data loss in Paradox table


Is he using the new BDE and is there an autoincrement
field as a key in the master?  There is a bug in the BDE 5.1
that makes it increment, according to posts when it shouldn't.  That would
make detail records seem to disappear, and probably ruin
your day.
