RE: access violation error
Hello, This has mostly to do with fact that Paradox is not completely compatible with Windows 7, and above. When do you run this problem having table on a machine with older version, it will work 99%. Suc6 Adam

Hi Bill We still are looking for an answer, so thank you for your reply. Yes, we do use PDF Creator.  So using file system method for renaming is the path.  Thank you.  Peter

Hi Steve, Your simple suggestion solved the problem for me.  As it turned out, my Form-1 was not opening Form-3. Form-1 was pushing a button that opened Form-3. In any case, I think I now have the solution within view. All the best, and sincere thanks, Lothar

Migration from Paradox to Access
Is the following scenario feasible:
  • Keep the existing PARADOX application, but move the data from *.db to MS-SQL
  • Re-program PARADOX-Forms etc. in Access step by step and use the MS-SQL Data in parallel with PARADOX and Access
  • If this is an option, who can support us? Michael

    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

    Blob Binary Large Object Error
    I have been having a tough time with BLOB (Binary Large Object) errors in memo fields of some large tables running on a Win2008 R2 Terminal server with just 3 users.  Any one else have experience with this? This is an app that has been running with support and modification for 25 years. It has been running on this server for close to 8 years. It is only accessed via a terminal server session, all activity in paradox is native to the server. I have had the tables get corrupted 7 or 8 times in the last three weeks.  I have seen this probably 3 or four times before in the last 8 years, but a rebuild of the tables has resolved it.  In the last three weeks, I have not been able to go more than a couple of days without corruption. I'll post more detail later, I wanted to get this up to see if others have experience with blob errors and figure out if this is the right Prestwood board to post it on as opposed to something specific to coding or tables. Thanks

    Form opening a form and changing working directory
    Is this tough to do? Presently we are launching forms from one form but then the orginal form closes. Also we are manually having to set the working directory for each form. Obviously we would like control to return to the menu after the launched form closes and the working directory set back to what it was before. I'm using Paradox 8.00.174.

    too long file name, tables won't open
    my problem of being unable to open tables because the file name is too long for a version 5 table - I've read in one of my texts that the later versions support long file names.  All I want to do is open the tables.  Since I've had no reply to a way to change the cumulative pathways, could there be another option?  Is there a way to change the tables from the earlier version that doesn't support long file names to my later version 11 Paradox.  Lacking a way to do this the  easy way (I couldn't find anything in the literature to do this, i.e. changing the table version), would it be possible to find out exactly the original paradox version of the table, copy the table to that version so it would open.  Then would there be a way to import the table data to a table constructed under the new version (the design duplicated from the table opened in the earlier non-long file name version).

    Steven, Different Customers/Environments; and, the Pdx 8 Customers are ending the use of Pdx not so far away (and are not on windows 10, yet), so I don't want to invest with a migration. Probably my own stuuf I'll have to migrate. If come up with any solution or this problem I'll appreciate it very much., Leonardo.

    Paradox on Windows Server 2012
    We migrated from using a run of the mill Windows XP box as a server to Windows Server 2012; one of the applications we use is a simple 3 table database which stopped working the moment the files were being accessed from the new server. We could see data but trying to add anything would result in a Lock Time Out error. I discovered that if I remove Referential Integrity from the detail table structure, and just assign it through the data model on the form, everything works. Would it be OK to leave it like that? or would it be somehow dangerous for the integrity of the data? Could the problem have come from some setting on the server? The person who installed the server for us doesn't think so but I'm not sure he is as familiar with Windows 2012 Server as I thought. For the time being I will be monitoring the data and checking that nothing is lost. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Unable to connect to Paradox table using ODBC
    Hi there, I am trying to connect to a Paradox table in PHP using the INTERSOLV ODBC driver provided with Paradox. I am able to connect to the DSN fine but when I try to run a query, I get this error: , Warning: odbc_[e_xec(]) [function.odbc-exec]: SQL error: [INTERSOLV][ODBC Paradox driver][Paradox]Network initialization failed., SQL state S1000 in SQLExecDirect I have checked my lock files and that my BDE has the correct NET DIR location, which is on our server that houses all of our Paradox tables. I have also tried re-installing Paradox several times. I am able to open the tables from this machine using Paradox with no error so I'm confused as to why this could be happening. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Steven, Thanks for the answer. I ended up solving the problem. The issue was that I was using Anonymous Authentication for the site on IIS and the user that was being used was a user that did not have appropriate permissions to access the lock file over the network. Hopefully this can help others who might run into this problem. Thanks!

    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
