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

Finding files (MSWord) containing
Hi all, I know how to find files using FileSystem  but I can't work out if it is possible to use Windows search from within ObjectPal to locate Word files containing specific words (without first converting to text).  Maybe DDE or OLE? Thankyou. Paul.

create uiObject Tool available in C# .NET???
In ObjectPAL, a developer can use the... ui.create() method to add uiObjects to a form with PageTool, BoxTool, ButtonTool, ChartTool, ElipseTool, GraphicTool, LineTool, OLETool, FieldTool, etc. Is there a similar feature available in C# .NET?

Can Paradox read multiple items for the Clipboard?
I am trying to streamline a work flow for our secretary and it occurred to me that she can sequentially copy multiple texts in another application to clipboard with cntrl-c. She can do this in sequence. Say family name, given name unit number. Can she then click on a button in Paradox to distribute these values to a Paradox table?? No problem for a single item, but what about the multiple values? Thanks, Paul.

opening MS SQL dataset with tcursor with uniqueid
Hi, , My first post. I am trying to open a table in MS SQL 2008 that has a column defined as a ROWGUID datatype UniqueIdentifier and it fails. Is there a way to add this datatype mapping to BDE or get around it in ObjectPal? The ROWGUID is necessary to use FileStreaming for data in MS SQL 2008 so I cannot remove the column from the table.

Voice activated Paradox
The biggest hurdle for users of data based programes is finding the time to do the inputting.  Has there been any advances in voice activation for Paradox. Is this feature built into a program such as PDX or is it an add on ?

Web Services SOAP WSDL SSL
We have the need to use web services and need help finding out how to accomplish this. WinXP - Pdox 10 For starters, can we use Paradox 10 to communicate via HTTP using SOAP and WSDL, or do we need to harness the capabilities of a third party application to handle this for us? We are not sure how to communicate with web servers to authenticate, and then ultimately send an .xml request file and then receive a response as well. Any guidance on how to do this or what applications to use for this would be appreciated. We've just downloaded SOAPui and are playing with that. Thanks, Shawn

No Spaces
I have a table that I have to export as a text file. One of the fields in the table is the account field. Some of the records display as 22 256 7894. The problem is that when I export the table the account value has to show as 222567894, no spaces. I can export the table just fine, but is there a code that I can put in to export the values without spaces?, , Thanks All

Sending control codes to a printer
Anybody know how to send control codes to a printer in a report? I have an Okidata ML320 which has built-in barcode fonts but requires a string of control codes to be sent to it prefixing the text that you want in barcode font. Is there a way to do this in the middle of a report? I know any ttf fonts will be rendered to graphics but printer fonts are printer fonts so any guesses as how to send a bunch of chr codes within a field and would they make it to the printer intact?, , Thanks for any help or guesses,, , Matthew Wegener

Another Imaging issue...
Does anybody have a DLL that would take an image in a Paradox Graphic field and save it to a .JPG file in .JPG format? Or have any other hack way to do it? for emailing files, Netscape automatically converts the bitmap to a jpeg when you paste it into a document. (only problem is it won't accept addressing information properly from Paradox.) Outlook Express can handle the addressing but can't handle the image even as a bitmap.
