What is APPXUTIL?

APPXUTIL.EXE is used to invoke the command line functions of APPX, on a Windows PC. These functions include:

How do I verify all files in a database?

The "appxutil -v" command verifies one file at a time. To verify an entire database, you could individually enter the commands at the DOS command prompt, but it is more efficient to create a batch file which does it. Use your favorite text editor to create a text file (NOT a .doc file!) which looks like:

Deleted:
<
<
  • c:
  • cd \APPX\DATA\DDD\AAA\DATA
  • appxutil -v=CUST.dat
  • appxutil -v=CUST2.dat
  • appxutil -v=DEPT.dat
  • ...(include a line for each data file)

  • appxutil -v=CUST.dat
  • appxutil -v=CUST2.dat
  • appxutil -v=DEPT.dat
  • ...(include a line for each data file)
 It's necessary to add a line to the script for each data file. You may want to do a "dir > temp", then bring that up in an editor window, and cut and paste filenames into the verify script. Save this file as "verfyAAA.bat", in the directory containing appxutil.

It is a good idea to create a batch file to verify each of your databases, in advance, so that when you want to verify all files in a database, you can just run the applicable script without having to spend time creating it.
