Hello all,

I am a newbie at taking a shot at the Btrieve API. I am working with a couple of sample programs showing API calls (BTRCALL) with various operations.

The problem that I am having is that I am not understanding correctly what the sequence of operations should be when one wants to delete or update a record.

I believe that you have to get the position block of the field that you need to refer to but I do not know how.

Can someone steer me in the right direction or post general instructions of what to do in order to perform the delete or update operations?

I know how to insert but always get status code '3' or '8' when trying to delete.

code '3' is file not open, but I just opened it a few lines of code before.

code '8' is an invalid positioning.

Thanks,
Laurent
