Re: data repair with Paradox - any suggestions/experience?-please help

Search Discussion Boards
Data in a Farm Works project can become corrupted do to a number of reasons including hard drive problems, improperly exiting Farm Works and/or Windows, power fluctuations and surges, etc..

When data becomes corrupt you will see error messages when running your program. These error messages may come up immediately or may show up only when you run a certain feature or report.

If you notice the problem right away, you can restore a backup from prior to the corruption to solve the problem.

If you don't notice the problem and you back it up then your backups may also have the problem.

Most Farm Works files are stored in a Paradox database format. These files can be repaired using a program called Paradox Table Utility.

If you are having problems that you suspect is due to corruption and you don't have a backup, please either call the support department or send e-mail to Please be prepared to tell us the following:
1. The exact error message that you get.
2. What do you do that causes the error (the name of the report or feature that causes the error to be displayed).
3. When was the last time that you ran this report or feature without getting the error.
4. Have you installed any new software or made any changes to your computer since the last time that you ran the program successfully.

A large number of these errors are not caused by corruption, but are caused by problems with Windows settings and drivers. If it is determined that your problem is due to corruption, you can send us a backup of your project and we will try our best to fix it. There is a $50 fee for this service.
