how to re-attach .Mxx files (memo fields) to a .DB

how to re-attach .Mxx files (memo fields) to a .DB in Paradox Tables topic (part of our Corel Paradox / ObjectPAL Coding group).

Quick Search: fields)   how re   how re attach   Mxx files   (memo fields)

Rank: Cadet 4th Year

I have experienced the disappearance of ALL memo field values (multiple memo fields, thousands of records) in at least one table (although the *.Mxx files still exist).

Based on info from another, old thread, I understand that there‘s neither a "built-in recovery tool" nor a "simple recovery process" to re-attach .Mxx files to a .DB, but where might I find the explanation of a tool or process--regardless of complexity--to explain how to do it myself?

Thanks in advance for any help!
