RE: Alias will not save
definitely, and alternative approach could explain the root cause.. in the old days, it was "is it the speaker, or the speaker wire?".. still true :-) I use an INI file to control a couple of things that even the runtime users can mess with, so they come back in clean, the next time

RE: Export table to spreadsheet
Another approach is a free 3rd party (ancient) tool called Sportamok's Paradox dBase Reader (v2.2.0). When I'm sharing database files with non-Paradox users, that's what I suggest.

Migrating to Windows Server2008
Been using paradox ocx as web server for over 10 yrs on server with windows server 2003(?).  Recently purchased new server.  Have Windows Server 2008 on it.  Migrated entire data and web info from old to new.  Cleaned up and tested all web pages on new server using localhost.  localhost:8081 hits paradox ocx and creates web pages perfectly. Now trying to webname:8081 to hit paradox and not working.  Probably bad description, I'm no good on the server side. Any ideas.  Why does local host see the 8081 port in the ocx but not the webname:8081? Help

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

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.

Code to delete record's last character
Hello, This would seem pretty simple, but... I have some code that generates a CSV file that I then export to my phone. I need to tweak the code so that it looks at the last character of each record, and then deletes that character if it is a comma. Might you point me in the right direction to do that? I'm stumped. Sincere thanks, Lothar

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

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
