Subject RE: [ib-support] Importing Records

I was referring to problems accessing EXTERNAL TABLES over 4Gb in size.

By the way, you might want to download the latest Firebird engine from, the new 64bit I/O support would mean that you could
eliminate the secondary database files and simply create the database

create database 'x:\experian.gdb' PAGE_SIZE = 16384 USER 'SYSDBA'
PASSWORD 'masterkey'

This would make it a lot easier to move the database to a different path
on your huge disk array, which is something you can't normally do with
database with secondary files expect by performing a backup/restore.

You'll note that the page size is 16KB -- this is another Firebird
enhancement over the Interbase engine.
