Post subject: Refresh Structure Causes Designer to Freeze

I am trying to refresh a table structure in order to access a new field. When I use the Refresh Structure command it causes Designer to freeze. I have to go to Windows Task Manager and end the task.

This has always worked for me before but not today, perhaps because it is Monday.

Any suggestions?

Does this happen when you select the individual tables for refresh or does this happen when you go to refresh the whole structure, clicking out of a particular table and into the surround...?

It has been about 55 minutes since I invoked Refresh Structure. I brought up Windows task manager again and noticed that every so often the status of designer changes from 'Not Responding' to 'Running.' But only for about two seconds and then changes back to 'Not Responding.'

Maybe it is just real slow. icon_confused.gif

Well sure enough it finally refreshed. Just got back from a short walk at lunch time and designer is back with a refreshed table.

I was just impatient. I should have realized that refreshing one table would take over an hour. icon_wink.gif

I've heard somewhere that in B/O 6.5 you have an option to retreive keys from tables. When I tried it, I have stopped before the end as it was running for hours.
Is this option marked ?

One place is in the print options. If you choose to underline keys, I'm sure Designer has to run something to determine the keys. Go to Tools, Options, Graphics, and in the Columns section be sure Underline Keys is not selected. See if that helps!

Just got back to dealing with this problem.

Unselecting Underline Keys fixed the problem. Thank you.

I'm glad it helped! Consider giving this thread a "point" ... the thumbs-up icon at the lower right of each post. Someday, we'll use the "points" information to place helpful topics higher in the BOB search results.
