I cant get ANY data from my DB I have found my magic cookie and used it as a test when opening the DB. However when I try to replace it with a wrong magic cookie I still get no error? Any suggestions?

Hi,

What do you mean by

However when I try to replace it with a wrong magic cookie I still get no error? Any suggestions?

.

Did you change the magic cookie value in DB?

If you replace or change the magic cookie in the DB file, It will not give you any error. But when you read programatically, you may get error.

Did you keep the original jar file during download? If so you can just unpack it again and use that.

Talking about magic cookie value changed, I doubt it can be done programmatically unless you purposefully write at the 0 file pointer.

When you say can't read anything is that mean your JTable show up and no data and no NullPointerException? Or something else?
