 Need help w/ Not a Table/DBF errors

I'm adding some better crash recovery type stuff to an app. that I'm working
on and want to automate recovery from Not a Table/DBF errors. Right now, I've
been having users go to dos and run some fix program (FIXFOXPO I think).  So,
I've got a couple questions.
 1) Can I run a dos .EXE from Foxpro for Windows?  And not have it show up in
a dos screen? What are the commands fort something like that?

2) I vaguely remember reading something on this newsgroup about this, but is
there a way to take care of those errors internally. Can you just delete the
index somehow? Obviously, it would be easier if I could do this fixing stuff
inside the program.

Not related to these questions - what are good ftp sites for Foxpro utils and

Any advice or help would be appreciated.Post here or email. Thanks.

What a coincidence... my friend who is doing {*filter*} programming has
been facing a similar problem... But I thought it has something to do
the database file. Anyway, he is running on FoxPro for Dos V2.5b (I
think it is patched) and the funny thing is that although 3 computers
having the same configuration, housed in the same building, only one
has this problem...

If anyone has any idea why this is so, please help. Thanks.
