    blob/memo fields are VERY flakey sometimes.. the repair tool can't fix them, if something is wrong, because the repair tool has no idea what is in there..

    if you have a backup, you can rebuild with the repair tool, and you might get something.. or, it might determine that the file links are bad, and you might lose something..

    either way, proceed with caution whenever you're dealing with blob fields..

    1 - be aure to have a backup
    2 - get everyone out of paradox
    3 - tools / utility / repair
    4 - select the table, and rebuild (not verify)
    5 - review the results carefully

    One thing to keep in mind also is that in the past I have repaired tables with memos and at first appearance it seemed it worked but later I realized that some of the data at the end of the memos was lost. So I would advise opening some of them up after the repair and make certain that you didn't lose any data.
