If the XML report on the Dictionary does not give the results as expected then potentially
the dictionary may be out of step with the Master dictionary. However, if the numbers
returned by the report are greater than those expected then this does not necessarily
indicate an issue. If any of the numbers reported are lower than those expected
then this will indicate a problem which will need to be resolved. Please put a post
on the Forum with the numbers from the reports and we will advise on the best course
If it appears that the dictionary is substantially out of step then the only known
reason for this is an issue which occurred back in 2010, when it was discovered that
running multiple updates together meant that only the first update was processed.
This was fixed in November 2011 with a new update program. We are not aware of issues
The solution is to provide a special set of updates to bring the dictionary into
line with the Master. In order to provide this update you will need to provide a
copy of your database. This can be a backup, or a copy of the actual database taken
after a detach. This can be provided on a DVD, memory stick, via Dropbox or similar
. All SQL versions can be accepted. There is no need to stop using Recorder. After
checking you will provide a special dictionary update which will bring your dictionary
into line with the Master. Please email me mike@Lfield.co.uk if you would like to
use this service and advise the version of SQL you are using. Only the dictionary
tables will be accessed and the database will be deleted once the work is complete.
There is a charge for this service of £40.00, but there will be an additional administrative
charge of £20.00 if there is a need to complete confidentiality agreements or similar.
