Solution


The table Awcpindv is corrupt.

To resolve this issue, perform a People Suite backup, then repair the tables.

DBISam tables have 3 files, .acsdat (data), .acsidx (index) and .acsblb (memo).

When a DBISam table is rebuilt in table maintenance, the original table is backed up. The backup of the original table has the extensions .acsibk, .acsbk and .acsdbk.
