  • Pages - FCR, PAT, Data, Index, Variable, VAT
  • Details in the File Control Record (FCR)
  • Use of Page Allocation Tables (PATs)
  • Implementation Details of Internal Pointers (5.x, 6.x, 7.x)
  • Automating PAT Lookup
  • BUTIL, Maintenance Utility
  • DataSave
  • PATFix
  • Breaker and Maker Utilities
  • Pointer Translation with Broken Files
  • Hexadecimal Editors
  • Manual Data File Recovery

Course Prerequisites: Student should have an understanding of Btrieve files and applications in general. Knowledge of ASCII and hexadecimal numbering formats is helpful (or you will learn it in class).

Goldstar Software strongly urges anyone taking this Advanced session to also take the PSQL/Zen Service & Support sessions, since this class provides a core foundation of knowledge for the advanced session.
