Thank you for your kind reply; I made a SHELL launching gfix -sweep but my problem is always there: after 255 ALTER TABLE ADD... i obtain the error 'too many version';
I purcheased the manual and I am waiting for it...probably I made some mistake in gfix...I hope the manual will help me to resolve this and others problems.-

I wonder if is it really necessary / useful to run a gfix -sweep? Maybe
after a massive deletion or insertion of records ?

With Firebird, garbage collection is a continuous activity. You don't
have to do anything. If you want to force a complete garbage collection
use gfix -sweep from the command line or through the Services API if
you're using the embedded version.
