oh well, thanks for trying.. interesting error, technically, cuz it doesn't 
have access to the tables.. like you, I was just hoping to match the results 
to other related results, to get more info..

doing the equivalent of Tools/Info/Locks in PdoxWIN, I pretty much know what 
I was expecting to find in the lock file.. the guy left a gazillion open 
tcursors, everywhere.. and a gazillion processes that were just a long 
series of queries..

if you google "paradox lock file too large", Delphi and C folks have a long 
trail of issues with queries

I just have to fix this, one form at a time.. thanks !!

Got the attachments - the email stuff never arrived...

News not good...

No problems creating F:\PDOXNET, etc, but LOCKDUMP (ver 1.3) does not
recognise your LCK file. It always says:
   Error: File read error in table block header.
and I tried -W, -D, (Win/DOS), and -R, -T, (Records/Tables), etc.

I also tried LOCKWISE and SHOWDUMP. Similar results.

Sounds like the LCK file is unrecognised by these old utils. Or,
unlikely, that the LCK is corrupt. Or, perhaps I need to set up some
other folders/files, but I can't think of anything else to try.

I searched for the internal structures of the LCK/NET files, and found a
reference to a document:, but
that's also "not found". It's probably somewhere else on TheDBCommunity,
but I could not find it (so far!).

Any other suggestions?

Yep - but, for a large TRA file, it's quite messy to match the session
records "manually".
