Re: DDF for encrypted files

Magic allows one to enter more than eight characters into it's Access Key property. However, as far as Btrieve is concerned, an owner name is limited to a maximum of eight characters. This means that, if you enter more than eight characters in Magic, Magic will remember them, but only the first eight are significant.

Truncate your owner name to eight characters and try again.

PS: Btrieve Owner Names are also case-sensitive.
