1. Please don't cross post. 2. Which line is #23? 3. Have you tested to ensure that you have a valid handle? ($db_num) 4. Have you tried adding error code to see the result of dbase_create(), dbase_open() 5. I seem to remember reading in the docs, a long time ago (2 yr) that the dbase functions were not really reliable and were intended mostly to extract info for export to another database. I could not be 100% wrong on that, and I've not worked with the dbase functions in PHP.
After this reply, please keep this focused on the php-db list.
