good to know.. thanks.. making your own "next number" process is a different way to look at your app, but it's very flexible.. and it doesn't break as easily as an AutoInc

I think you can put multiple table frames in the body.. historically, we've always done stuff like that by manually creating the text file for the report.. it's a ton of work, but then you can literally do anything you want

Run Vietual Machine on Linux
Couple of options: 1.Run Dosemu in Linux. 2. Run older version of windoze in VMWare.  VMWare works great on RedHat and other Linux versions. Option 2 works best. Hapoy Computing!

filter button disappears when using dialogBox
Howdy.  I've got a form that I use for dataEntry.  When I use a dialogBox routine, the Pdox menu changes and when I close the dialogBox, those menu changes remain with my main form.  The important thing for me here is that I lose the capability to use Filters.  I have not found a way to reset the menu to the correct one.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

Keeping graphics in Pdox table
I am trying to get graphics data into a table - envision a Movie database and I want to include DVD art into the table.  I am able to get the graphic into the clipboard and then paste it into the table.  Everything appears to be fine until I leave that record - then the graphics that I could previously see is no more.  I've tried everything that I can think of within native Pdox and nothing helps.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

Reports with Sub Reports
Anyone know If there is a way to add a subreport to a report?   This is not a Parent/child data issue.   Essentiall I need to cross tabulate data and give a summary of the report data by specific categories. Thanks

PARADOX 3.5 - RUN ON VISTA ?
Hello, , I know, I know any Paradox 3.5 users should have upgraded years ago. I've got V9 but have many, applications developed in V3.5 that I use daily. They run fine on XP but am I going to be able to run V3.5 on Vista in all modes ( 32 and 64 )?. I've read conflicting info on the subject. I know it doesn't run on XP64 ( no 16 bit support ). Vista is 64 bit also, but I saw somewhere that Microsoft demo'd 64 bit Longhorn / Vista running 16 bit Visicalc !!. This is very important issue to me and I would be most grateful for any feedback., , Thanks. John.

I don't think there's any way to make a significant change, other than "fastest machine you have".. you can do 1000 loops in a minute.. that seems quite reasonable

Complex report filter
Hello again, I need to create a filter for a report from a client list.  The records I want to filter have a string that's common in all the fields I want to filter.  I want to filter on that specific string using the filter function in the report.  I've tried several operators and either come up with nothing, everything, almost everything and then some or everything but.  I even tried the ..*** used in search strings within a table. I'm sure I'm missing something. Thanks, Karen kbalter@sierraonsite.com

Logical Indexes
To all, As I migrated from Paradox 8 to Paradox 11, I noticed that I was not able to recreate one of my secondary indexes in the newer version.  The secondary index included a numerical field and then a logical field.  The logical (boolean) field was not listed as one I could add in the table restructure dialog box.  I went back to version 8 and added it.  Is there another way to do this so that I can retire my older version. Greg

from the help "You can define a secondary index on any field or group of fields in a table except memo, formatted memo, binary, OLE, graphic, logical," in general, I use number/integer/short field with 1/0 as the indicator values.. 1 is true, 0 is false.. probably cuz I go all the way back to the beginning of PdoxDOS, and there was no logical field :-)

Index out of Date
Hi all, I have run Paradox 8 on a Server 2003 for over a decade using RDP sessions with dozens of users.  I upgraded to Paradox 11 and Windows 10 clients.  All still fine.  This week, though, I migrated my database from a Server 2003 to a Server 2016.  All programs run fine but I am getting multiple index out of dates each day when multiple users save data in the tables.  So far, I have: 1.  Disabled write cache on drives 2.  Excluded database directories and c:\netdir directory from Windows Defender scanning 3.  Edited LanmanServer and LanmanWorkstation to add keys 'enableoplocks'=0 and 'disableoplocks'=1 4.  Local share on BDE=true 5.  All sessions map to the same c:\netdir for control file and use same path to database tables Any help from those who have succeeded with a Server 2016 hosting tables in an RDS environment would be greatly appreciated.

the Win7 UAC defaults, and how different settings affect other things, can be confusing and yes, in general, I put cfg file and ini files in the folder with the net file, and point to them on the command line good detective work !!

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
