The two typical problems with consolidation are the size of your
tempdb (typically needs to be about 12mb or larger) and how much free
space you have on your Emerald log segment. With Emerald 2.2, you can
go into isql_w and execute:

Consolidation x

where x is the number you choose on the batch screen. It will
either return the full set of records, or give an error. The
error should tell you the problem. You can do the same with the
DeleteCalls if you have a failure on that part as well.
