2. BDE Best Practices: Safely Use Paradox Tables

Use a file server (not a workstation) to store your data, disable Oplocks on the filer server, and configure the BDE (local share to true and optimize if desired). Finally, if workstations are crashing, fix em so they don't. You want clean running computers that don't crash.

3. Borland TUtility wrapped up in a Prestwood Installation This Win32 program will verify and rebuild all versions of Paradox tables (3.5, 4, 5, and 7). To be clear, this program was not written by us. We simply packaged up the appropriate two files from Borland's BDE Utilities and Updates page in an installation program.

6. Deleting .Val files is sometimes okay and necessary. Referential integrity and other settings stored in .VAL files sometimes interfere with the development of a project. This particularly is a problem when you are restructuring a child table in a referential integrity link. If this happens to you and you don't mind losing the validity checks for a table or for a set of tables, go ahead and delete or, better yet, rename them.

10. Know Your Field Types! If you are developing an application using local tables and you know you are eventually going to move the data onto a SQL server, then do yourself a favor and spend a few hours studying the field and table naming rules of your target SQL server before you create your first table. While creating your local tables, use a naming convention that uses common rules. If you use the naming rules in common between the two database types, then you will save yourself time when you move your data to the SQL server because SQL servers often have different naming rules from the naming rules in Paradox.

11. Paradox 10 table structure? I was just reviewing the Paradox Table Specs in your Paradox developer reference area. I found specs through Paradox 7 only, and I'm really interested in Paradox 10. Is it available?

12. Paradox locking on edits If your Paradox application appears to lock up when you attempt to edit a record, you may want to disable your virus scan application to see if that is the problem.

13. Paradox Net Dir

The directory location of the Paradox network control file PDOXUSRS.NET. The active NET DIR parameter is stored in the Paradox section of the BDE configuration file and has precedence over any other NET DIR parameters that may be stored in older 16-bit configuration files, or in the System Init section of the current configuration file, or in the Registry. These other NET DIR entries will have no effect. To access a Paradox table on a network drive, the active NET DIR parameter in the Paradox section of the BDE configuration file must point to a network drive and folder in common to all users.

15. Paradox, .NET, and the Wicked Back-Tick

Using spaces within database column names may be "legal," but that doesn't mean it won't make your life harder. It's legal in Paradox tables and most database systems but you might want to avoid using spaces. Here's why - and one way to use spaces if you're using Paradox tables under .NET.

19. Table Lookups and Directory Paths (more than 8 characters) Lookup tables for Paradox table level 5 or lower are limited to 8 characters. If you use lookup tables in other directories, upgrade all tables involved to the Paradox table level 7. You can do this with Table Repair or by defining a level 7 feature (for example, a descending index).
