RE: Document Source Report broken.
Hi Steve, When I read your comment, I thought "Of course... that would explain it." But, I searched with care, and there is no mention of "fldDate" in the code on the form. I'll try another approach and will get back here if I can't work it out. Many 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

    RE: Paradox 11 Runtime - Unexpecte
    Turns out the runtime was crashing beacause of interdependence of certain libraries.  The order that they were opened and the order that they were closed cause the crash. Open LibA Open LibB  (which also opens LIBA because it has a dependency on LIBA) Open LIBOthers Close LibA Close LibOthers Close LibB   = Crash Simply closing them in the reverse order that they were opened fixed the issue.

    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

    Paradox 11 Runtime - Unexpected crash
    Under certain conditions I recieve the following error when closing a database "The PfW Runtime has stopped working"   , , This occurs when I open a database with the following switches (Sample shortcut command), , "C:\Program Files (x86)\Paradox Runtime\Programs\pdxrwn32.exe" -c -q -wN:\PortData_V11\CoastalAmerican N:\PortData_V11\CoastalAmerican\mainmenu.fdl, , Once the application opens,   it will run as expected until I click the command X on the top right corner of the app window (not the open form, the APP). If I choose File Exit from my menu or if I click the X in the top right of the open form,  it exits properly,  both of those options have code associated with them that shut down the database. Does anyone know the cause of this OR does anyone have a code snippet to intercept the click on the app window? Thanks!

    Application Control bar
    Does anyone know which event(s) I would use to trap or capture a users mousclick on the applicaion menu. Specifically,  I want to know when the user clicks the X on the application window(not the open form).  I need to run some shutdown code before the active form starts the CLOSE event. Thanks Rum

    Lock on Paradox Link to Spreadsheet
    I have Paradox 11 and Corel X6 with Quattro Pro. Within the spreadsheet I have several links to Paradox tables. Something got corrupted and the system crashed, leaving me unable to open the spreadsheet, From another work station I was able to open the spreadsheet files and disable the links, which now allows me to open the spreadsheet. But whenever I try to re-establish the links the spreadsheet locks up. Otherwise, everything works fine. I have reinstalled Quattro Pro, Paradox and BDE but that didn't help. The work station has Win 7/64 and have tried to restore the OS to an earlier point but the restore utility fails. I'm guessing that I will need to get the HD reformatted and reinstall the OS. Before I make that leap, has anyone seen anything similar or have any thoughts on how to make the DB-spreadsheet links work again.

    yes.. the first thing to look for is left-behind lock files.. either in the data folder, or in the folder with the spreadsheet

    I have the code, but where best to put it?
    Hello, I have a few lines of code, but am confused about where to put it: I have a two fields on a form. One of these holds an email address, and the other a unique number identifying that email address. The process of getting and incrementing the unique number is handled with a tCursor that opens on a table that holds only that single number. The coding is simple, and works, but I have managed to get myself confused about where best to put it. Would it be best to create a "New Address" button to do the deed? Or would another location make more sense? Thanks for any assistance, Lothar

    first.. you're making a "next number" table.. YES !!!! you have two choices.. trap for the INS key, or deny the INS key and use a button.. personally, I prefer the latter.. I always try to limit all the keypress stuff, and use buttons, for many reasons

    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
