ERY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Compiled by Dave Pearson < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >

In no particular order, here are some of the questions that are most
frequently asked in comp.lang.clipper. In many cases the comp.lang.clipper
FAQ or Google Groups <URL:http://groups.google.com/> would have helped you
find the answer. Where possible the URL that points to those resources is
given as the answer.

I've got this vague recollection that this issue has been raised before.
Regarding anything that goes into the VFAQ, if someone will spend the time
and effort to create a resource to answer the question and if someone is
able to pose the Q that is VFA (such that most people will recognise that
it's the Q they're attempting to A) then I'll happily add the Q to the VFAQ
and have it point at the A.

Yes, Dave - I raised it with you ages ago ;-)


It's the Q that stumped us - the A is here:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

If it's any help, people seem to be typing the following search
strings into Google to find the page (listed in order of popularity):

dos error 55
corruption detected nt clipper
disappearing network drives windows xp
clipper index corruption
.reg registry modifications
clipper and windows xp

<URL: http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ; is probably what
Nick meant to type.

BTW Lee, do you happen to work for Hormel foods?

Or, as Lee pointed out, not. :)


Ok, how about something like:

* I'm using a MS Windows server and I'm getting "DOS error 55"/"corruption
detected"/"DBFNTX/1038 lock failure"/"disappearing network drives" or
similar issues. What can I do?

The answer points to your NT networking page. Sound good? If I've had no
objections or corrections in the next 24 hours I'll add that (you might want
to remind me some time tomorrow Nick ;>).

Hi Dave,

Personally, I prefer the use of commas to separate the "issues",

Indeed - just goes to prove that writing a usenet message while trying
to debug a Linux problem over the phone isn't a good idea :-)

Just as well, I'd forgotten I needed to remind you!

Hang on a minute - who's 10 years younger (and should have the most
undamaged brain cells!)???
