Question:
I am attempting to add data to my Paradox table but I'm getting the Error "Table is Full". What is the cause of this and how can I add more records?

Answer:
Paradox tables have a block size which determines the maximum record size for a table and the table's maximum size. By default tables have a block size of 4K. Regardless of the block size, tables can have a maximum of 64K blocks. This means by default a table can grow to 256 MB.

You can increase the block size of a table in 1 of two ways.
Run BDE Admin and change the block size for the Paradox driver to a revised number. Legal block sizes are 1024, 2048, 4096, 16384 and 32768. If your block size is larger then 4096 then you must also change level to be at least 5. Finally, create a new table and batchmove your data from your old table to your new table
It is possible to change the block size of an existing table by calling dbiDoRestucture. For an example see www.borland.com/devsupport/bde/files/pxrest.zip
