Problem: ArcView queries a shapefile that no longer exists in the project

Description

When opening a project, ArcView tries to apply a theme definition query to a shapefile that was deleted from the project.

Cause

A theme definition is a property of the theme's attribute table (FTab), not the theme itself. The theme may have been deleted but the attribute table still exists in the project.

Solution or Workaround

Remove the attribute table and save the project.
