Checking a database
You can check a database after upsizing, or after large changes or prolonged editing, or at any time that you suspect problems.
There are several ways to check a database and, if necessary, repair any inefficiencies or errors found. In approximate order of use, you should use these commands:
- Database Statistics (or Database Design Report)
- Repair/Compact Database File
- Schema Integrity Check
- Link Integrity Check
Except for Database Statistics (or Database Design Report), all these methods work with a database that is not open in iBase Designer.
