Re: Database corrupt

You have a corrupted activity in the database. Most likely you you will need to have the database repaired.

Re: Database corrupt



I solved the corrupt database!


At my server I used scandisk on the drive that the database was on, it ran all night.

I then ran actdiag. Then from Act I ran database maintenance.

So far everything is running perfect.

I hope this will help others.


Thanks again
