CATraxx database does not grow

Post by cospap » Sun Sep 29, 2019 2:18 pm

The CATraxx does not grow, even if I enter new albums.

Thank you for your consideration.

Hello Cospap,

Can you view the new album after entering?

Please try compacting your database. (FILE > COMPACT)

So the database DOES add the new entries.
You are not seeing the file size change?

Have you tried to compact the database? (FILE > COMPACT DATABASE)

This also may be related to the Windows Virtual Store "issue" . I've experienced it several times at work.

It seems that your suggestion to compact the database has worked.
Now when I add new elements is growing.

Thankm you

With the requested album open in the album form, ALBUM > UPDATE-MANUAL QUERY

It's not 100% but has served my needs.
