RMS Indexed File Corruption? (RRV)

» close window

The Question is:

I am currently experiencing the following error:
Invalid RRV record encountered.
How can i aviod this error?
i am trying to access rms data files on a alpha vms cluster through odbc.

The Answer is :

: Invalid RRV record encountered.
  This error is most likely caused by an RMS indexed file corruption.
  This problem might be resolved via an RMS file CONVERT operation:
  If the conversion operation fails, you will need to restore a recent
  backup of the file, or request the assistance from Compaq Pofessional
  Services to recover as much data from the corrupted file as is feasible.
  There is also a (small) chance that the application or the ODBC package
  is "making up" an illegal record file address (RFA), perhaps by
  corrupting memory holding a table of records file addresses retrieved
  in a prior query, or that it application is simply returning a bogus
  condition value that happens to matche the RRV value.
