This is a simple discussion of a technique I use to create new Paradox reports quickly, which are similar to existing ones, yet functionally different in their purpose. Screen shots are included to illustrate the method I utilize.

Arrays in ObjectPAL use a 1-based indice.

Use size() to get the number of elements. size() returns 0 if the array has no elements.

Topic: Paradox ODBC Drivers

Recently, one of our message board visitors asked if was possible to connect to - and use - an existing Paradox databases with Visual Studio .NET. The answer is "Yes!"

Using spaces within database column names may be "legal," but that doesn't mean it won't make your life harder. It's legal in Paradox tables and most database systems but you might want to avoid using spaces. Here's why - and one way to use spaces if you're using Paradox tables under .NET.

If you have an existing Paradox system you can keep using it but you'll need to skip the Vista operating system and either stick with Windows XP or move to Windows 7. Because better tools exist, you may very well want to put a plan together now for converting to another development tool or at least understand what the future is likely to hold. If you're a power-user or researcher working with data, stick with Paradox.

Bottom line is you should skip Vista and either stick with XP or move to Win 7. If you have to use Vista, you might be better off with Paradox 9.

Instructions to install Paradox 9 for Windows on Vista.

Posted By Mike Prestwood, Post #101098, KB Topic: Installation, Setup, & BDE
  +Add Comment  (18 Comments)

Paradox for Windows has two primary file types: source files and delivered files. Source files in Paradox are binary but can can be opened in later versions of Paradox and even in earlier versions if you don't use any new features: .FSL = Form, .RSL = Report, .SSL = Script, and .LSL = Library. Since Paradox source files do not compile to an EXE, Paradox developers tend to use a startup form or script to start the application.

Topic: Interactive Paradox: Reports

Paradox has a built-in report writer that will suffice for nearly all reports you wish to create. You base a report on one or more tables or on a query. It uses a banded approach so you think in terms of records, pages, and report. Except for the record band, each section has a header and a footer. Paradox also offers a quick report which is useful for printing data quickly.

This article describes a Paradox ObjectPAL ordering trend reporting program I made that accepts a purchase order date range and a non-purchase order date range. It will report customers who bought during the purchase time period, but not during the non-purchase time period. There are 2 versions of this report. The older version uses only ObjectPAL Tcursors to perform the processing. The newer one incorporates programmatically executed queries in addition to Tcursors. The purpose of this report is to reveal those customers with declining sales.
