Help needed in DAOCollectionGetCount

Post by rafalgg » Fri Aug 05, 2016 7:13 am


running Catraxx 9.47 (beeing a user for about 8 years already) I have recently got an error message while opening my working database (quite big of 200 MB with thousands of entries). Error is "DAOCollectionGetCount failed". There is the same error while I try to open backup files from last days. Sample databases are working fine. I have also tried to reinstall Catraxx. I am using latest Windows 10 and after yearly update of the system everything has been working fine, so there is probably no issue of .NET or any other Microsoft database components. Also last working closing of Catraxx was fine - I see it by having automatic backup created properly. Also tried to repair database and it is not working...

Any ideas how to solve the issue?

Rafalg, having googled the error message and found the reply meaningless (to me!) I would start by using the repair database command (Tools/repair database). I would, of course, do a backup first,

If the repair isn't working, I'd try Transferring to a new database.
