Hello Martin,

I know you can do this, we used to.  But I can’t remember now how to do it, but I think the question has been asked before, so it should be in the archives some where.

Search for DF2 maybe.

Hi All,
How do I detect that an Omnis DF1 file is full and needs to be segmented?
How do I segment the datafile programmatically without the need for user intervention?
I am using an Omnis classic library ver 8.3.1.
Kind regards
