    It would be helpful if you provided some details, e.g. a directory listing of your backup file location, the command lines you are typing and the DLC version you are using to do so, the resulting messages/errors, etc.

    Question Tutorial for simple crud application

    This means that some process is currently connected to the database. It could be a single-user client session or a utility, for example the compiler session you mentioned. This command line assumes the database is open in multi-user mode, i.e. that a broker has been started for the database...

    Count results in for-each

    Sure. You can also add "no-lock" after "for each table", and an actual condition, and white space, etc. It was meant to be conceptual pseudocode, not an ABL programming tutorial.

    Create a table using a variable?

    To programmatically create the table and then load data into it, you could use the prodict/load_df.p and prodict/load_d.p routines from the Data Dictionary code. More info: Progress KB - How to programmatically dump and load database definitions (.df's) and data (.d's) files using Data...

    ODBC connection causing DBI file grow

    A DBI file is created by a SQL server to store query results during a query. I don't know if you can prevent it but you can change its location by specifying the -T <directory> (temp directory) parameter on your SQL broker, so at least these files won't fill up your database partition.

    Count results in for-each

    You could count them yourself: define variable i as integer no-undo. for each table where condition: // stuff i = i + 1. end. display i. For a scrolling query (subject to documented conditions), there is a num-results function. A dynamic query handle has a num-results attribute. You can...

    Programmatically: for each dictdb._file no-lock where _file._tbl-type = 't' by _file-name: find dictdb._storageobject no-lock where _storageobject._db-recid = _file._db-recid and _storageobject._object-number = _file._file-number...

    Database location

    When you say "location", do you mean where a table is located within the database (i.e. its storage area) or the physical location(s) on disk? Also, I don't know what you mean by "custom" in this context. A simple way to find table locations is to run a dbanalys or tabanalys report: proutil...

    Connect to outlook application from batch progress session fails

    It shows interactions with the OS, i.e. invocations of API functions, across a variety of classes: process and thread events, network events, registry events, and file system events. There's a bit of a learning curve but it's quite a powerful tool and there's a fair bit of information online...
