6.1: ODBC problems

Joe,

You can create an image of the table without the indexes and that way
you can link or export it. Here are the instructions:

1. Make sure there is anyone using the database.
2. Open Progress SQL Explorer Tool (Start-Programs-Progress 9.1D, etc.).
3. Select File-Connect
4. It opens a connect window. Enter your host, tcp port, database, user
and password.
5. After connecting, type the following in the top of the split screen:
create view odbc.customer_view

as

select * from pub.customer



This command creates a "copy" of the customer table named
odbc.customer_view.
6. Press the lightining bolt to execute the command.

Now, instead to connecting directly to PUB.Customer, you are going to
connect to odbc.customer_view. If you modify your ODBC connection, you
can update the customer table in certain fields (you want certain
customers to have specific information in the 3rd line of the address,
etc.)

Do not try this again with someone connected and also, do a back up and
re-store of your database before doing any change that cannot be undone.

Good Luck!

Subject: [Vantage] 6.1: ODBC problems


We are trying to pull information out of Vantage in Microsoft Access
2003 for various reasons. When trying to import or link to certain
tables such as the customer or parts tables, we get an error that says
something like too many indexes on the table. Crystal works just fine
when reporting on these tables. I have heard in this forum that
maintenance can be done on the database. Does any of this maintenance
include re-indexing or does anyone know how to fix this issue?





Thanks in advance.

The following link shows various limitations with Access - Indexes per table
<= 32 as well as other issues.

Hope it helps.
