sorry, no help here.. I've never used any of the Corel automated processes, and very rarely have I used any of the Suite pieces other than Paradox itself.. the real problem these days is that there's nobody at Corel who knows anything about the Corel automated processes, either.. new or old

Thanks!  I've used ChimneySweep before (probably have a license for it!), but I'd forgotten about it.  Thanks for the heads-up/reminder!  I'll check it out.  (As I recall, it was very useful in fixing things that the built-in "fixer" couldn't fix.  I'll try to dig it up & see what it can do with these memo fields!) Thanks again! Aloha, -pt

RE: Database Diagraming
look at the enum functions.. enumfilelist can give you a list of tables, then scan that list with enumfieldstruct to build a table of field names and properties enumfilelist can give you a list of forms or libraries, then scan that list with enumsource and build a table of your code an "org chart" of what calls what can be simple or complicated, depending on the complexities (or lack therof) of your app

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?

Closing TCursor variables declared within a method
If a variable that is declared within a method goes out of scope at the end of that method, is it really necessary to close a TCursor variable that is declared within a method?

Database Diagraming
Hello All, I am looking for advice on diagramming my paradox database/application.. So far my methods have been really tedious. In Paradox it is easy enough to get the table structures out. For forms I open them in Design, use the object editor to get to the event and open that up for editing. I just read through the code to see where the original developer stored data and what other forms or reports he was calling. In Access I would use the object dependency tool to do this type of work. I have not found anything like that in Paradox 9. Is there anything helpful for mapping dependencies in later versions of Paradox? Are there any other tricks you guys have learnered for mapping out relationships and object dependencies when you are disecting other people's work? Thanks, Steve

Unknown internal operating system error
I cut and paste images into an image field on a Paradox form and I've been doing this with no problems for years; yesterday I got a message saying 'Unknown internal operating system error' with a reference to the .MB file, when I tried to paste an image in. Paradox hung. After restarting, I verified and rebuilt the table and it imported the image ok but when I tried to do it with a new record the same thing happened. I'm using Paradox 10.0.0.663 running on a Lenovo laptop with Vista Home Premium and Service Pack 2. The database has 121,900 records in it but not all of them have images. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.,

how to re-attach .Mxx files (memo fields) to a .DB
I have experienced the disappearance of ALL memo field values (multiple memo fields, thousands of records) in at least one table (although the *.Mxx files still exist). Based on info from another, old thread, I understand that there‘s neither a "built-in recovery tool" nor a "simple recovery process" to re-attach .Mxx files to a .DB, but where might I find the explanation of a tool or process--regardless of complexity--to explain how to do it myself? Thanks in advance for any help! Aloha, Philip T. (PT@PhilipT.com)

Memo Field Accepting "Hard Return"
I have been away from Paradox for a few months, but am in the process of updating some of my old work., , I was wondering how I would set a memo-field to accept "Returns", or to simulate a line break from the keyboard., Users enter brief trip reports and have been complaining they cannot separate their paragraphs properly. I haven't been able to find any properties which look promising, but I'm sure this problem has been solved in some way or another on this board. , , Thanks in advance, Eric

Paradox 7
Hi and thanks for any support, Have a databas on Paradox 7 . The original designer has passed. After any help at all on ammending 2 values withoin the database . Have upgraded from XP through Vista and then 7 (32 bit) and programme still works. How do i ammend a value eg the VAT is at 20%(say change to 21% as a test)If we use design viewer to open up VAT calc 17.5% is shown (which is obviously a default value) you can put in a new value and it evens prompts the change but nothing changes in effect. Please please please not an sql expert but windows knowledge above average . Tried using Paradox editior no good. Apparently the original designer used tools and did about 4 steps to effect the change .  Any advice appreciated.2nd question should we upgrade to Paradox 9 or 10. ? to make life easier in the future

the upgrade to 9/10/11 is essentially cosmetic.. there's something in 7/8 that doesn't work in Win10, but nobody has determined the nature/scope of it as for your app, it often takes 10 to 20 hours to analyze and assess the workings of an unknown app, and recommend a path forward there's never just one problem with a 20 year old app :-)

Getting a buttons labeltext
I'd like to use a button's label in the code in the pushbutton event. Prerably I'd like not to name the button because I have a lot of these buttons that need the same treatment. I tried msgInfo("", this.labeltext) to try to get the right syntax to obtain that info but I didn't get anywhere. Tis is possible, right?

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

Does Paradox have macro substitution?
I need to use the contents of a parameter to pull a field's contents. Visual FoxPro uses the & character for that sort of thing. Is there a Paradox equivalent? Edit: Fount it - it's called dereferencing, eg  sField = "Name"   ;Assign a field name to the variable., view(tcCustomer.(sField));Dereference the variable using parentheses. from:  https://www.prestwoodboards.com/ASPSuite/KB/Document_View.asp?QID=101169
