Resolve MapBasic command: "Server Refresh" doesn't work on Native TAB files in version 12

product affected: MapBasic™, MapInfo Pro™

Issue

When running a Server Refresh on a Native TAB file in MapInfo Pro 12 an error is generated: "Cannot perform this operation on <TABLE_NAME>

Cause

MapInfo Pro 12 does not allow this on Native TAB files where previous versions of MapInfo Pro did. When used in a MapBasic application it can cause MapInfo Pro to crash so unless using a Linked DBMS table please remove the Server Refresh statement.

Resolution

UPDATED: December 4, 2019
Remove the Server Refresh statement (it is redundant on Native TAB files)
