Re: termination code 1206 DMUseFile

Hi @bromelton

 

Such an error usually means there is a corruption in your company file. I first suggest you try to Optimise the file (locally not over a network). Have a look for Optimisation Assistant under Start menu, alternatively run the file called myobpopt.exe from the MYOB folder.

 

Optimisation rebuilds the file and can correct some errors. If Optimisation completes successfully try opening the file again. 

 

If this does not solve the problem, you will need to restore your most recent backup and re-enter any transactions since the backup was made. Alternatively you can get the file repaired. Here is a link to MYOB's company file repair page Company File Repairs. There are also others who repair MYOB company files - try googling something like 'MYOB company file repairs'

 

Regards

Gavin

HI Gavin

 

Thank you for that - tried that and have  a new error

 

An error occurred while attempting to compact the database  

DM Error = (-3000-5030-7043-407)

 

Think I need to send off for repair.

Hi @bromelton

 

Yes this confirms file corruption and restore backup or repair is the next step.
