Well, I took a closer look at my problem (created a logical and another
user with same authority couldn't use it) and then decided to see if the

same thing occurred with the physical file, and the answer is yes.

Now, I can do an UPDDTA and browse the file fine, someone else can
not.  There are no date fields in this file.  There seems to be one
where there is a packed number in an alpha field (I'm gonna have to fix
that) but I can browse it fine, I just see the characters that make up
numbers, while the other use gets "The retrieved record contains invalid

I copied his user profile to another profile named test, logged on as
and test gets the same error.  Someone has suggested it had something to

do with a date field, but there are no date fields in the file layout,
only types
'S' (zoned) 'A' (character) and ' ' (defaults to zoned).

Anyone have any clues?

Thanks in advance for any hints.
