If you export the file cabinet to a duplicate you have created all of the good records will MOVE to the new cabinet. The records with broken header links will remain as long as you select the delete source documents check box. If you leave the checkbox empty the good docs will COPY to the new cabinet. It will give you an Idea of the number of broken records and wont change your source cabinet. I would duplicate your related storage locations and backup the database beforehand just to be safe.
We recently aquired a docuware customer. They informed that there were documents that would not be displayed in in the viewer. Basically getting a header not found message. Phil and the Solutions Factory tried everything to recover the broken records with out success. But they did help come up with a solution to re-unite the disconnected images to the database in a manual process. Unfortunatly one cabinet has over 3500 broken records (most Handwritten) and it would be impractical to manually recover all of them. I have segregated the good records and the bad ones into separate file cabinets. Te best approach would be to recover the records only if they are requested. Here is what I need....
I have a log of all documents that failed to export. every document has a DOC ID that matches a file name string in the storage location files. When I attempt to display a document the error message does not display the Doc ID number (I think the doc id number was displayed in the error using the old thick client). If I had the doc ID number I could easily find the images related to it in the store location doing a windows file search. All of the images are there they just dont have a connection to the database.
Is there a query we could run that would produce a result list of one index field of the document along with its DOC ID? This reference would make things alot easier to lacate items on the fly. Or If I could extract the doc ID and fill an index field so it appears in a result list??
Please feel free to contact me. It might be easier to discuss this in person.

Is there anything I need to be aware of before I upgrade this system to 6.12?
