Over the past year I have been migrating from Paradox 7.5 to Paradox 11.

I am finding that in Paradox 11 I am having trouble using readprofilestring calls as the Calculated value of a field definition.  After Definiing the value, when I try to run the form(or report) I get a general protection error and often the session is currupted and I have to leave (or Ctrlaltdlt) paradox and go back to a previously saved version.  It seems like I can use one profilestring definition in a form, but a second will cause the curruption.

I just did a test, and a profile string statement that works when I set it in Pdox75, but it causes the above problem when I try to set it in PDOX11.  And the PDOX7 created form will run in PDOX11.

But if I edit the the field definition and try to run the form in PDOX 11, it curupts the session.

Has anyone else run into this?  Any Comments?

Here is a readprofilestring statement that can be used in PDOX75, run in PDOX11 but not edited in PDOX11:

ReadProfileString(GetaliasPath(":Priv:")+"\\_OnTime.INI", "Report", "Title")

You want coffee?  I could write a paradox app for that...
