First one there is method from my friend-programmer


If you have access to Visual FoxPro command line window, type:


USE "YourTable" EXCLUSIVE    && If the table is damaged VFP must display an error here

PACK && To reindex the table and deleted "marked" records

PACK MEMO && If you have memo fields

After doing that, the structure of the table must ve valid, if you want to see fields with invalid data, you can try:

SELECT * FROM YourTable WHERE EMPTY(YourField)   && All records with YourField empty

SELECT * FROM YourTable WHERE LEN(YourMemoField) > 200   && All records with a long memo field, there can be corrupted data


Otherwise, there are following effective articles and materials right there if your database is not a database file in foxpro:
