RE: using alias to oracle, datamod
... a brief update for anyone else encountering this issue: with ODBC against MySQL, I was able to address the error by creating the primary keys on the MySQL tables used in the data model of the form using the following DDL: ALTER TABLE `tablename` ADD CONSTRAINT `tablename` PRIMARY KEY (`Primary_Key_Field_Name`) ... where tablename is the name of the paradox table that was migrated to the new back end with the name preserved. YMMV (particularly against other back-end DB’s). Best, John

RE: data threshold on reports?
> A lot of human intervention. High margin for error.  yes.. welcome to the wonderful world of self-made apps.. I've been cleaning up behind folks for almost 30 years (sigh) when different query parameters on the same table sometimes work / sometimes fail, it usually just means the indexes for that table are hosed.. only a temporary show-stopper, once you know how to deal with it Alison said you called last night, I'll try to call you back this afternoon

 Thank you, Steven, that's awesome.  Of course I feel stupid that the capability is built in to the language itself and I didn't find it.  I was looking for it in the ui, but alas, it was burried in the 1000+ pages of paper manuals I got (and still have) w/ Borland Paradox For Windows in '93.  Ah those were the days ;-)

Export All Custom ObjectPal Code?
Hi, It's probably asking a lot, but is there some way to get a nicely formated (indented) document  listing all the ObjectPAL attached to a form?  Thanks for reading

PDOX11 over MSSQL (ODBC) - Schema in Table Names
Might anyone here know a way to configure ODBC/SQLEXPRESS under the BDE to return table names without a schema prefix (i.e., tablename rather than dbo.tablename)? Should I be looking at a different SQL DB?  Ideally, I’d like to point the alias that currently references the main paradox database to one referencing tables ported to sql and look at what needs fixing from there.  Thanks to a tool created and shared on codeproject by one of the forum members (thanks Igor!), database conversion to SQLEXPRESS went surprisingly easily, with only a few minor field type changes needed across hundreds of tables. I’m connecting to the SQL db fine from paradox via odbc. That said, I’ll consider a different back end (Firebird? PostgreSQL?) if it means the Paradox app will require fewer changes; I’m dealing with many forms and lots of code and porting the back end is a step toward a full conversion away from Paradox. Thanks! John

many possibilities, but most likely this profile is not accessing the shared files correctly, or the config in the BDE isn't the same

something to avoid? nothing that we know of.. computers aren't perfect.. stuff happens copy/paste? yes, that's what I've done.. I had to re-create a very complex form last year, for a client.. one piece at a time, test it, move on.. never found a specific piece that would fail.. eventually, it was all done, and I could finally make changes that they'd needed for several years

ObjectPAL version incompatable...?
Howdy, I run Paradox 9, under Win 10. I made a minor edit to a particular report. Let's call it Report1. Typically, I print that report using code that is on the doubleclick of a field on an MRO on a form called Form1. Now, when I launch Form1, and doubleclick on the appropriate field in the MRO, I get the error: "The objectPAL version used in this form is incompatible with this version of Paradox. You must recompile from source." So, I opened the form in Edit mode, viewed the code on the field's doubleclick, saved it, and delivered it. Next, I did just that for Report1. I relaunched Paradox, and also rebooted the system, but still get the error. In addition, I can launch the report, and can print it manually, with no problem. How can I correct this error when trying to use the code to do the printing from Form1? Sincere thanks, Lothar

Hi Steven, I thank you for your suggestion and did try it. While experimenting, I stepped through the code, and found something odd, that allowed me to tweak it. With that, all worked well. So though I had success, I confounded the experiment, and I don't know which of the tweaks corrected things. In any case, as before, sincere thanks, Lothar

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
