Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Recompile the program and try again. A level check occurs when a file create date is newer the the program you are running was created. It’s a saftey check to make sure the file is still the same format.

    If you get a 'level check' error message, follow the instructions in the message to correct the problem.

    Recompiling your program after determining why you got a level check (and determining if any changes are needed to the program) is the safest route.

    CRTPF, CRTLF, and OVRDB all have the option to disable level checking...but...use this at your own risk.

    If you've only added fields past the end of the file's old format or are only using SQL-type methods to write data, it's possible to disable this and probably be just fine.  But this is not a great habit to get into.

    Since the message text tells what the recovery is, it's hard to see this as much more than an interview/homework question.

    If the error was received, then the text was available and it says what these replies say. The replies don't seem to add anything. If the error message wasn't received, then the replies don't help (since the eventual 'level-check' condition will be accompanied by the text anyway) and the question seems likely to have come up in an interview (or on a test or as homework).

    philpl1jb, It was a handle I hadn't seen recently so I thought it might be worth addressing with some degree of seriousness.
