8. 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

9. 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

11. How do I patch Paradox 11 for Vista?
Howdy y'all, I was using Pdox 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 on this machine. I read in Mr. Prestwood's article about Vista that Corel had released an Installer patch that results in an 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 instance from my WPO 11 Pro CD? Thanks kindly. P.S. Don't really wanna consider upgrading to Win 7 x86 unless absolutely necessary.

13. Out of Index
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. JB

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.

15. Lock on Paradox Link to Spreadsheet
I have Paradox 11 and Corel X6 with Quattro Pro. Within the spreadsheet I have several links to Paradox tables. Something got corrupted and the system crashed, leaving me unable to open the spreadsheet, From another work station I was able to open the spreadsheet files and disable the links, which now allows me to open the spreadsheet. But whenever I try to re-establish the links the spreadsheet locks up. Otherwise, everything works fine. I have reinstalled Quattro Pro, Paradox and BDE but that didn't help. The work station has Win 7/64 and have tried to restore the OS to an earlier point but the restore utility fails. I'm guessing that I will need to get the HD reformatted and reinstall the OS. Before I make that leap, has anyone seen anything similar or have any thoughts on how to make the DB-spreadsheet links work again.
