Hi,everyone:
In "Data file Format",
what's mean the "4 byte numeric, offset to start of record zero "?
the "offset to start of record zero" means the Max records in the DB file?

Hi Jofer,
I take it you are talking about the second item in this list (from this post)

The file you received from Sun consists of three parts: the header (described above), the schema, and the data itself.
That offset simply tells you how many bytes you will have to read or skip over before you can start reading the data.
Regards, Andrew
