Thanks Mike!  We‘re still plugging along with Paradox and I needed to restrict users‘ input on a form.  It worked perfectly!

ODBC - Intersolv v3.11 driver with Pdx9 installation disk
Currently using Pdx 11.0.0.302 on laptop with Win7 64 bit, no problems with essentially interactive use for year past.  Now have need for access to Pdx tables by ODBC. Have installed drivers supplied on the Pdx 9 install disk but the drivers do not show up on the Drivers tab of the ODBC Administrator window. In past, have successfully installed drivers ex Pdx 9 cd with same Pdx 11 set up on machines running Win XP. Except this time used a backup cd copy of the original installation disk. Made 2 attempts, first prompted for licence code, entered and it ran. The driver files have copied to the default location as prompted by the setup procedure. Also accepted default installation path for Pdx 11.

How do you reference the current form's (implicit) data model?  (I need to grab a value from a table that's related to the main [only] table in the form.) Thanks! PT@PhilipT.com

Data Model
A data model is a diagram of the tables used in a form or report. It identifies the tables, defines the relationships between them (links), and has features including the ability to filter each table and mark any table as read-only. You can save a data model (.dm) and reuse it with another form or report.

Paradox 11 Desktop Settings do not Save (PdxRegCl.exe)
Paradox does not remember desktop settings. I just installed Paradox 11 on a new computer and my working directory and other settings do not stick when I restart Paradox. Why?

That's true, I was just saying that NOTEPAD is a quick, easy veicle for transferring the QBE code to an OBJECTPAL script under one of object explorer's events within the FSL form. The aliases in the code from NOTEPAD reference the already set up data tables to be used in the query.

I am trying to use some of the"msg" procedures. I have successfully used "msgInfo" but can't persuade the others to work. For example, when I try to place a "msgAbortRetryIgnore" statement into a method, the compiler flags it but doesn't explain what is wrong. The online help with my package provides no further assistance. Obviously there is something wrong with the context in which I am placing these procedures but I have no idea how to get them working.

Hi Mark, The funny thing, or good news, is that Paradox runs better on Windows 10 64bit than on Windows 7 and Paradox runs better on Win7 than Vista. Backwards compatibility is getting better with each version of Windows after Vista. So, use either Paradox 9, 10, or 11.

I useed to use Paradox for windows back in early 1990s and really liked it.  I recently found some applications that I wanted to run and perhaps port to another DB program.  I'm running Windows 10 64 bit.  Is there any version of Paradox that can be setup to run under it?  From some comments above, the ODBC driver working would be great.  Please let me know if there is any path forward.  Thanks, Mark Rowland --- Mark Rowland
