Packing a table
reclaims disk space used by deleted records as well as extra space that is
created when inserting records.
To pack the tables select
from the BandBro main menu. This will then be instructed to close the program
and re-open it to initiate the packing routine.
In addition, BandBro'
will monitor the record count and automatically pack the tables if a significant
change is detected upon opening the program.
Packing Error Message
On rare occasions, the
packing of a particular table may fail. This may be an indication that the
a table is damaged or corrupt. You will be notified with a message box displaying
name of the culprit file. In addition, a text file titled Bandbro Bad tables.txt
the name of that file will be written to your desktop.
If the packing procedure
fails again upon re-opening BandBro', you should rebuild that table. Using
Bad tables.txt as a reference, open the table rebuild utility and rebuild that table.
If the rebuild fails,
you should replace that table with a backup copy.
