When you open an attached Btrieve table, you may receive the following error message:

Btrieve-Out of Resources


If you are using compressed Btrieve files, you must be sure that the compression buffer Btrieve is using is adequate for your data. The buffer size must be at least as large as the largest record in your data files.


To ensure proper operation, set the compression buffer size option (/u) in the [btrieve] section of your WIN.INI file (for Btrieve version 5.1x), or your NOVDB.INI file (for Btrieve version 6.x). The units for this setting are kilobytes, so if your largest record is 2K, you would add /u:2 to the Btrieve options line in the .INI file.


Btrieve is manufactured by Pervasive Software, a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.


For more information about setting options, see the topic "Setting Btrieve Options in WIN.INI" in the BTRIEVE.TXT file, included with Microsoft Access version 1.1. In Microsoft Access version 2.0, refer to the ACREADME.HLP file.
