Can you first try restarting your computer. If that doesn't work, try deleting the "C:/windows/temp/gopher2002.GBK" file and try again.

Can you still use the program normally? Does all of your information appear on the various screens (e.g. Customer, Schedule, etc)?

What happens if you click the Validate button instead of Repair Database?

Yes I can still use the program normally (just can't backup or clear errors) and if I hit VALIDATE instead of REPAIR DATABASE I get the same error "bad perameters on..."

Ric,

What are you backing your data up too? What kind of device? If all else fails at the moment you can go into your my computer icon from your desktop and copy the gopher2.gdb file. GDB stands for Gopher DataBase.

Ric,

Do you normally backup your data onto your c: drive?

The reason I ask, is because if you do, if your hard drive crashes and your backup is on your hard drive, then you won't have a functioning backup.

You should backup your data somewhere else to store it.
