DECforms and CDD/Plus

Has anyone used DECforms with CDD/Plus?

I have an IFDL that gets its form record details from the CDD Dictionary.

End Copy

Although I can see the record information when using Datatrieve, translating the forms gives access violation errors:

31 End Copy
%FORMS-E-CDDEXTRACT, error extracting record STOCK$DICT.HEADER_REC from CDD/Plus.
-CDD-F-NOATTACH, unable to attach to dictionary database
-SYSTEM-F-ACCVIO, access violation, reason mask=04, virtual address=00427200, PC=0042F8D9, PSL=03C0000

Do I need to make changes to environmental logicals, etc do that DECforms can find the library?

Re: DECforms and CDD/Plus

It has been many years since I have done anything with CDD or Datatrieve, but I seem to remember that you had to have a logical defined (CDD$TOP I think). Try going into datatrieve and do a show dictionary command and take the definition and create a CDD$TOP logical with that definition. Then see if it will translate the form.
