Question/Problem Description
Error 2736 when connecting to the database.

Error 2736 when using PROUTIL <db> -C truncate bi
Steps to Reproduce
Clarifying Information
Error MessageUnable to open word-break table file <table-num>. (2736)
Defect/Enhancement Number
A word-break rule file has been associated with the database previously and cannot be found. These files are named:

For example: proword.1
Firs verify if the proword.* file exists in the Progress installation directory (DLC) and whether its permissions are set correctly.

Additionally, verify that an environment variable PROWDn=<path_to_proword.n> is defined.
(n = the rule-number specified when the proutil wbreak-compiler was run).

If the file does not exist, the word-break rule can be changed back to the default with the following commands:

        proutil <database> -C word-rules 0
        proutil <database> -C idxbuild all

Changing the word-break rule of the database will impact the search capabilities of the application. Expect any search using the CONTAINS operator to make use of word-indexes to return different results if the word-break rule is changed.
