It is likely that you have one of the following: 1. Quickdex/Rightdex on a file. This is stored in a hidden record %RECORDS%. This is limited to 64K in length. 2. You have used a relational index in which you have a lot of keys being indexed into a field in another record in another table. For examaple .. CUSTOMERS, ORDERS, INVOICES with ORDERS and INVOICES stored in data fields of a CUSTOMERS master record. The CUSTOMERS record can not exceed 64K either. 3. You have created a record whose length exceeds 64K. Sometimes this can happen with multi-values or excessive amounts of text-delimited data. HTH Don
