I must have a corrupt recipe in my cookbook, because I get “bad record number” and “pointer” errors. What is the best procedure to fix this?
Try these things in the order listed, checking after each to see if the problem is corrected (if so, try no more): 1. Try to delete the recipe using Recipes… Recipes… select the recipe, then press Delete button. 2. Open a new cookbook (File… New Cookbook…), and import all recipes from the cookbook (File… Import Recipes…), or if you know which one is corrupt, import all but that one. 3. Defrag the cookbook with the corrupt recipe (Options… Tools… Defrag Cookbook…). Last resort if all else fails (this will uncategorize all your recipes in the cookbook): 4. Rebuild the cookbook index (Options… Tools… Rebuild Cookbook Index…).
