    New Stuff Since Your Last Visit 1. Posting to SQL from multiple forms
    Bradley, I read thru your response and it appears that you're posting the the SQL db only thru the library.  I have a situation that I need to post to the SQL db from many different forms and passing all of the data thru to a library would be extensive.  Is there any other way to open the SQL db for the entire paradox session? I'm concerned about performance if we have to open the db connection on each and every form. Thanks for your help! Beth

    2. Twain to jpg
    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

    6. creating flat file from a normalized table w/ QBE
    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. Thanks, NK

    Make sure there is only one entry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Borland\Database Engine\CONFIGFILE01.  Sometimes if you've tried to install more than once, the entry gets duplicated with a semi-colon inserted between the values.  Delete the second entry including the semi-colon.

    14. Paradox to ODBC SQL Connection Login Screen
    Does anyone know of a way to get rid of the pop up login screen when connecting BDE to ODBC SQL server? I have found places that state you can store the login information, but that does not seem to work. Is there a specific ODBC driver I should be using that will work better than the SQL Server Native Client 11 (this seems to work the best for data types and such)?

    15. How uninstall Pdox 10 from Windows 8.1
    Hi.  I have Pdox 10 installed on Windows 8.1 (64 bit but Pdox running under Win's 32 bit capability). I have been having some glitches which make me want to uninstall and reinstall Word Perfect Office 2002, or at least Pdox 10, to see if that fixes things. When I do "Control Panel | Programs | Uninstall a Program", Paradox and/or Word Perfect Office 2002 do not appear in the list of programs to potentially uninstall.  I am reluctant to just reinstall for fear I could screw up what I have. , In the olden days (possibly thru Windows 7), you could uninstall the Word Perfect 2002 programs via Start | Programs | Word Perfect | Uninstall;  but with Win 8.1, that option is no longer available. Any idea of (1) Do I first need to uninstall Word Perfect Office 2002 / Paradox 10 in order to reinstall the same?; and 2) If so, how? Thanks,,  Fred
