Database Options option

Choose this option to load data into the _db-option table. The _db-option table contains user-defined information about the database.
When you choose this option, the Load Database Options dialog box appears, and contains the following fields:
*Input File — The filename that contains the data you want to load into your current working database. The default file is _db-option.d.
*Acceptable Error Percentage — The Data Dictionary prompts you for an acceptable error rate. As the Data Dictionary loads records from any files you designate, it might encounter data that cannot be loaded (for example, a duplicate value for a unique key field). The Data Dictionary does not load the record. If you specify an error rate of 10 percent, the Data Dictionary must successfully load 90 records from every set of 100 records loaded. If the error rate exceeds the specified rate, the Data Dictionary terminates the load. The Data Dictionary places bad records in the table-name.e file.
*Display Errors to Screen — Select this option to display error messages on your screen.
