"The search key was not found in any record." in dBase ?

i came up with this error "The search key was not found in any record." while reading a dbf file some time back. i was going thu microsoft support site and and they ask you to install some kind of patch that will never work. finally i found the solution



1. To Resolve that issue, In the Registry Editor, browse to the following
Registry key:

\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Jet\4.0\Eng ines\Xbase

2. On the Right Pane, Click on Deleted.

3. Right-Click on the Deleted and click on Modify.

4. Change the entry from

0000 01


0000 00

4. Click OK.

5. Close the Registry and then open Access and the file imports fine.

special thanks to Amy Vargo.
