11. JDBC and the BDE
Our web application queries the Paradox tables through JDBC every 30 minutes to update our local copy of the data. This scheduled query will run, for about a day and a half before it starts failing with this error:, , Error message: Error while trying to connect to database, Exception message:, While trying to obtain Connection object, there was a ProviderFailure exception on the server., Following are BDE Error messages:, BDE ERROR CODE: 9488 MESSAGE: Too many sessions., , We are closing all connections and database resources after the update is finished. For, some reason, the server is running out of resources., , Is increasing the number of sessions in APPSRV~1.pro from the default 45 to a higher number the right direction to address this issue?, , Bob G.

15. comparison between Pardox and Access
I've been using Paradox from V4.0 through V9, relying on Mike Prestwood's books to get excellent results. , The pressure is on to convert or adopt to Access for future database/progamming, but I was always under the impression that Paradox was more stable, and overall a better product. If this is true, is there any chart or table available that compares the two, or at least some indication as to Paradox's strong points in relation to Access? This is a bit urgent, Thank you!

16. Paradox books by Dan Ehrmann or ??
I want to learn how to expand my basic knowledge of writing queries in Paradox. My company's application operates on Paradox and I want to learn how to really manipulate the data available. I've been told that two books by Dan Ehrmann are good, but out of print. "Paradox Queries--The Basics" and "Paradox Queries--A Developer's Reference". If anyone has a lead on either of these I'd appreciate knowing., , Bob

Field text displays in REVERSE?
Howdy, I have a multipage form that has a significant amount of code on it. One of its fields has started to display its newly entered text in reverse order of the keystrokes. So if I type KEYSTROKES immediately after entering Edit mode what appears in the field is SEKORTSYEK. If I enter Edit mode, and pause for a few seconds before typing, all is well. I have no understanding about how to diagnose and correct this problem, so would welcome any help. All the best, Lothar

Mouse WHEEL Movement
In PDOX 8,  the mouse wheel had no impact on the paradox environment,  It just didn't work. Now in PDOX 11,  the mouse wheel is allowing users to scroll off of the record they should be Adding/Editing.  The user is then focused on a blank screen. Is there a way to trap that event?  I dont see any clues in the help doicument when it comes to scrolling mouse wheels. Currently I use the KeyPhysical event to prevent users from using the arrow keys to move from record to record,  but does not prevent the MOUSE action

who would have guessed that Corel would ever do something that dumb?.. at least by putting the net file in the root of C, you can go into the BDE and find what they did
