Welcome power-users and I.T. professionals!

    Nothing New Since Your Last Visit 1. RE: Filebrowser & Files Types
    Hi A. I. Breveleri Thanks for your Reply! I had begun to Suspect I Could not do what I wanted with FileSystem & the FileSpec! So, I have begun Looking into Using Win API, One because of the Filspec Limitation and 2 Because I understand there are issue's with Resource Leaks (Just Found out about that One), in the Meantime your suggestion to use AdvMatch Sounds a good workaround in the meantime.  Many hanks your Reply!

    Is there a sendKeys code for the Windows key?  I am trying to add a password protection to and Excel spreadsheet and the last step seems to require that key.

    That is hilarious! I'll say that "To Be Done" will probably be the first checkin message for many repositories of beginning version control users. But I get the feeling that wasn't what you wanted to write and publish in your newsletter... X-D

    Nothing New Since Your Last Visit 13. 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

    14. 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
