report question
Dear all,  I just got a paradox report on our legacy system - paradox 7 for windows. I need to find out what is the underlying data for the report. I opened the report in design mode and look at the data model. It has three tables, two of them linked. Two of them are priv table. I can find the two priv tables - one empty and the other one has data. how can I find which query makes the process? thanks for your help!

Opening multiple tables at once
I need to open a data table and run through it checking a particular field for matches in a separate look up table. I need to flip repeatedly between two open tCursors. I declared my two tCursors and opened them expecting them to open independently, like so: tc.open("one") get the string tc2.open("two"), expecting two to be opened in another work area. search a match for the string in Two's FIND field if found manipulate the string tc2.close() update one's data with the string, expecting one to just be there and selected. move to the next record and repeat What am I missing in the way these tables/tcursors need to be opened or selected? The way it is now tc2 doesn't seem to be being selected when it's opened. NONE of code examples I checked online used two tCursors in the same code block.

It's a shame these useful products like Paradox and FoxPro never got upgraded to 64 bit. They would still have their place I think.

Paradox using JSON
Hello, I develop software in Corel Paradox 18 years for driving schools. At this time in Portugal, the practical lessons are recorded through a tablet where it controls the time and kilometers travelled, and this data is made available by the software manufacturer who registers these lessons in JSON. Now I need to integrate the records of practical lessons with my Paradox database. I've spent hours trying to find some information, but without success. Today I found your internet page, and how you have experience in JSON and you know the Paradox well. I write to you in the hope of helping me with some information or idea.

yes, we know Paradox well.. I am not sure if any of the Paradox folks here are familiar with JSON, too.. me, no and, of course, we know nothing about your app and/or your requirements what does the source data look like, and wht import problems are you having?

Export table to spreadsheet
exportSpreadsheet Does anyone know of an alternative method to export data from a table to a spreadsheet? I am currently using this,   exportSpreadsheet ( const tableName String, const fileName String [ , const makeRowHeaders Logical ] ) Logical but it has some extreme limitations,  such as FONT control and the number of lines you can export.

Search multiple Scripts
Howdy, Is there a way to search for something (a variable name, for example) across multiple scripts (and each section of those scripts, like run, var, proc, etc.)? In the ideal world, I'd like the output to be something like:    script1.ssl   proc   1732   the line of code with the search phrase I suppose I might have to write my own script to do it - but was hoping for something easier. (My big project has code split across several scripts because of the size limitations built-in to Paradox.) Thanks, David
