How to repair a split DBF file?

The internal data and structures of split DBF files are identical to those of spanned DBF files. The only differences between them are the names of the parts of the file, that is:

Each part of a split DBF file has a different extension (such as 'mysplit.z01', 'mysplit.z02', etc., and 'mysplit.DBF' for the last part). While all parts of a spanned DBF file have the same name (such as 'mysplit.DBF').

Therefore, the way to repair your split DBF files is just similar to that for spanned DBF files(assume your split file names are 'mysplit.z01', 'mysplit.z02', ..., 'mysplit.DBF'), as follows:

      1. Start DataNumen Oracle Recovery and click "Repair Spanned/Split File" tab.
      2. Click "Add A Part" button to add mysplit.z01 to the list.
      3. Click "Add A Part" button to add mysplit.z02 to the list.
      4. Repeat step 3 until all the split DBF files, i.e. mysplit.z01, mysplit.z02, ..., mysplit.DBF, have been added into the list. Please note you must preserve the order of the parts when adding them to the list. That is, you need to first add mysplit.z01, then mysplit.z02, and so on. If one part is missed or corrupt, then you can just ignore it and continue with the next one. In addition, please make sure the last split file, i.e. mysplit.DBF, is also added in the end.
      5. After all the split DBF files have been added, specify the fixed file name in "Output fixed file as:" text box, for example, mysplit_fixed.DBF.
      6. Click "Start Repair" button to start repairing the split file.
      7. After the repair process, a new fixed file named mysplit_fixed.DBF is generated, which contains the data of all parts of the split file. You can open it with popular DBF utilities, such as WinZip, WinRAR, etc.
