> Using your advice, I found the Plus.ini file and realised it was pointing to a different folder to the one that I had set up in the BDE when creating the database alias. So when I upgraded in 2013, I must have stopped using the BDE database and started using files directly in a folder. (Although how this works is beyond me when the same files reference the database alias I had created). So long story short, in preparation for moving to the new computer I had copied what I thought were the correct files (those which the BDE pointed to) across into another folder, thereby overwriting the actual latest files. I found all the intact latest files on an old backup, so happy days!! A bit of tweaking and it is all working again.

Never ever dump your old computer till your new one has all apps
functioning properly.

And importance of backups can never be over emphasised.
