1. too long file name, tables won't open
my problem of being unable to open tables because the file name is too long for a version 5 table - I've read in one of my texts that the later versions support long file names.  All I want to do is open the tables.  Since I've had no reply to a way to change the cumulative pathways, could there be another option?  Is there a way to change the tables from the earlier version that doesn't support long file names to my later version 11 Paradox.  Lacking a way to do this the  easy way (I couldn't find anything in the literature to do this, i.e. changing the table version), would it be possible to find out exactly the original paradox version of the table, copy the table to that version so it would open.  Then would there be a way to import the table data to a table constructed under the new version (the design duplicated from the table opened in the earlier non-long file name version).

Sorry, it took me a while to get back to you. In the mean time, I bought a new W10 computer and re-installed P11. The problem with the tablenames has been fixed now. Unfortunately, an other problem occured. But I will look for the right thread to see if I can find an answer. Thank you for your help!

table lookup restricting data entry
my thanks to dan fought in resolving my former problem with too long file names.  it worked great.  new issue found in resurrecting old files.  is there a way to use table lookups to speed data entry, but still allow a data entry person to enter a value not in the lookup table when they are using a data entry form (with a drop down box on it accessing the table lookup).

If you use the paradox object expert you can get some fairly good code to fill a combo box with values from a table.  The combo box does not have to be restricted to the values in the "Lookup Table'.  However, be cautious using this.  A large table can cause errors, since the size of the list is limited.  For ease of use I go to a pupup list in a custom form when the tables get too large.

After a stroke in 1998, I'm trying to use previously developed tables forms and reports, with a number of problems.  My use of Paradox started with the first version and progressed through the new versions until 1998.  My first problem is that using version 9 in trying to use tables original copied from earlier versions onto later versions, I'm getting a message "unable to open file name too long for a Paradox version 5 table".  My assessment is that in copying files between old and new computers new additions were made to the pathway to the directories and sub-directories and that was called the file name.  Is there a way to get rid of the old pathways?  i.e. is there change the file name some way to get rid of the problem?
