      In v8 when I park above the tables list and chose Options/Get Definition, a dialogue opens with fields for "Database". When I zoom from there, the Database List is empty even though Settings/Databases shows the "Default Database", Btrieve that I am using. Dead end.

      Did you try doing a Get Definition to at least get the SQL version of the table, which should give you a hint on what the definition should be?

      In Magic v8, Btrieve, there is a Memo Attribute that does not exist in Magic v2.4. The table has 4 fields:


      9-Byte Alpha

      1-byte Integer logical

      2-byte signed integer

      3502-byte Memo


      The total record size is displayed as 15 bytes.


      I have duplicated the fields in 2.4 with the Memo as a String BLOB. Its size is also 15 bytes. The single, unique index appears identical with the first 3 fields as segments totaling 15 bytes.


      Problem is that I get a data definition mismatch. Ideas?
