There’s good news. You can add segments to each of the datafilee. Each segment can hold the same, I forget that amount, maybe it’s 2.5 gigs. Anyways, you add segments using the datafile browser, again I forgot how to tell you to get to that but it’s easy. You can add the segments manually using the Omnis datafile browser interface or you can add them programmatically using code.
I just wish to tell you that there is a way to get that upper limit Omnis offers. Definitely. The segments are called by different endings as in DF2, DF3, but have the same first name. The link is seamless and you don’t have to do anything, it just flows over from one to the next once they are created. After they are created, you cannot use just the DF1…it expects the added segments and complains if they are gone. So add them only when you’re ready to keep them forever. They have the same icon, they are extensions of DF1
