 NEW "FEATURE"

I recently decided to sort a PDOX4.5 Win file that contains several
thousand records.  I had sorted this file before, but this time, after
adding about one hundred new records, the file sorted but PDOX then
erased it from my hard drive.  Fortunately, I was able to recover it
with Norton's unerase.  I decided to see if this sort and erase feature
was a quirk.  I backed up the file, made some changes to the file, then
sorted it again.  And, again, PDOX sorted the file and erased it.  Has
anyone else experienced this wonderful new "feature" of PDOX 4.5?

Actually this is a known problem and there is a work around.  I don't
known if Borland has a fix for the problem yet.  The cause seems to be
.FAM file.  If you delete or rename the the .FAM file, the problem will
go away.  Of course if you remove the .FAM file you may also mess up your
refential integrity for your tables.  Check with Borland Tech Support to
see if they have a fix yet.  Good Luck.
