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?

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!

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.

I do understand and that's why I'm installing a Filemaker system but it's taking time to replicate the versatility that we have with Paradox. Such a shame!

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
