Hi All.... It seems that there is no option for choosing a jpg rather than a bmp output when using Twain control from within Paradox... Is this so? If not can you suggest a work around apart from a manual conversion?? Thanks, Paul
Some years ago I saw a query of a single normaiized table that gave a flat file answer table.
Presently, I have file that tracks payments and adjustments to outstanding receivables. A single claim may have many payments (either from insurance companies or patients) and/or adjustments (from contract write-offs to collection write-off). I am needing to show for each claim, in a single row, amounts for each type of payment and adjustments.
Of course, I can produce this result in a series of queries. And fortunately, there is a relatively small number of payment and adjustment categories, so this is entirely doable.
However, I am interested in the technique, as such, that used a "self-join." I've had no success in searching on the internet, in part, perhaps, because I am not even using the right terminology.
I was using Pdox 188.8.131.520 on an XP Pro laptop to support infrequent maintenance of a Pdox/DOS app. The disk failed with no image backup. Now using this Toshiba laptop running Vista Ultimate SP2 x86 with all patches. This copy of Pdox 11 came from the WP Office 11 CD. I have the product key. I had downloaded and installed SP2 and SP3 patches for Pdox 11 and now have 184.108.40.2060 on this machine.
I read in Mr. Prestwood's article about Vista that Corel had released an Installer patch that results in an 220.127.116.111 instance. This instance is working correctly except for the APPCRASH event that occurs in pdxwin32.exe when I exit the program. Does the 411 point release fix the APPCRASH bug?
So what's the path to an 18.104.22.1681 instance from my WPO 11 Pro CD?
P.S. Don't really wanna consider upgrading to Win 7 x86 unless absolutely necessary.
I have gotten a few "out-of-index" errors since upgrading to Win 7 on one of the clients. I run PDOX 9 with one box acting as a server (only) and 4 clients. I know how to fix the problem with the table repair utility but I was perplexed on what was causing it. After a little reseearch I found the error is prob caused when I tried to access the table from two different places on the local computer. I haven't received the error since then so there is a good chance that is the cause of the problem. The error didn't occur when I was doing the same thing with XP, only with Win 7.
I'm not sure why Win 7 would be more senstive than XP but not being able to access tables from mutiple locations on a local computer is not a big deal...so I don't do it anymore.
Bar code readers are usually just keyboard wedges. Meaning, they emulate keyboard presses so no extra coding is needed. Let me know if you're doing something special; otherwise, no special coding needed.
Hi Ross, my company Prestwood IT doesn't develop new applications in Paradox anymore, but we do maintain quite a few. Our development for new apps focuses on two platforms: C# to MS SQL using webforms, as well as PHP to mySQL usually within Wordpress.
It's great that Paradox 9 and above run well on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10. I miss the simplicity of Paradox applications. Good times. I maintain a blog on the future of Paradox at the following URL:
