Re: internal database error
Hi Pradeep!

1) check if you have enough free space in the directory where your job is running ( FISOLV.xxxxx directory is created). Remember - after uncompressing -the temporary database saved in FISOLV.xxxxx/ is much larger than the original one.

2) I had similar error message when opening a problem on another mashine, where my disk space quote was limited. I thought it's an error, caused by an incompatibility when I transfered the database from one computer to another. But it dissapeared when I opened the database in a directory where I have much more free space.

Good luck, hope it helps.....
