# 178 BDE Database Transfer Utility Not Properly Creating Data Files During Transfer

When the BDE Database Transfer Utility transfers any BDE local data file over to DBISAM format, if the data file contains a primay key and does not contain any auto-increment fields then the data file will transfer without any internal record IDs. This problem will show itself by taking the transferred data file, restructuring it, and adding an auto-increment field. The auto-increment field will show up with 0s (zeros) for all records.

Comments Comments
This problem does not affect the database engine, only the BDE Database Transfer Utility. Also, the repair functionality in the database engine has been updated to fix any data file with this problem.
