RE: Bringing the Active record to
Never mind. Tried for a few days, couldn't get libraries to work (maybe a windows 10 issue?), but I figured it out using a query to a temp table, and pulled the value from the temp table into the second form. Maybe not the most elegant, but it works.

I got the notice that you posted this, but it does not show here yet if there is a language issue, that might be part of the problem.. can you insert little temporary msgInfo messages in the printing process, to see how far it gets? to determine the specific line it fails on?

Paradox on Windows 10 Locking Up
I have a customer that insists on continuing to use Paradox. We have the files stored on a file server that has a share that is mapped to all users workstations as a drive. It has been working fine for years. Recently, we migrated the server to from 2008 R2 to 2016. We now have users complaining about the application locking up especially if inactive for a while. I'm wondering if anyone has an ideas to prevent this from happening? Thanks, Jeff

How to get all files on a drive
I am sure that at one time I had a script or form that would give me a listing of all the files in a directory, including subdirectories. (Perhaps it was just on my todo list.) It would, of course, have involved enumFileList and recursive routines. I would appreciate if anyone might point me to such a utility. I am not finding what I need otherwise out on the internet. Thanks, NK

trouble using SendDLG() on 2016 RDS svr W/ Outlook
I am starting up a new 2016 RDS server to replace a 2008 R2 Terminal server running a Paradox 11 App. I am having trouble using the M.SendDLG() command, which runs fine on The 2008R2 server. I get a windows error about the default email client and to open Outlook and set it as default I have opened outlook and set it as default I have also set it in control panel default programs and through settings default programs Both servers are running Outlook, the 2016 server where the problem is occuring is running Outlook 2019. There is also a Paradox errormessage that simply says "Main".  I think thats the errorShow for the M.SendDLG() Anyone else run into this?

Form won't open
Inexperienced user here.  Self-taught, and smart enough to know that I don't know much. Paradox 10 running on Windows 10 I spent weeks developing a paradox form and application for a project I'm doing, then the form simply stopped loading. So I did it all again, spending weeks again. Then it stopped loading again. I can open all other forms in the same project, all tables, and all datamodels.  The form in question worked fine when I had it open last, designing and testing it.  Now it won't load.  All I get is the timer circle spinning, and it won't stop until I go to Task Manager and shut Paradox down.  No error message at all.

Working dierctory problem
Hi All. I have a very strange occurence happening with Paradox 9. The working directory is all set correctly and tables working spot on. If I look at table view all data correct and up to date but when I look at the tables in the folder via windows explorer they ar over 5 years old ?? I can table view, re structure and save as and this would work but i cant see where paradox is getting this other information from. Could this be a registry error or windows problem? Thanks in anticipation... Andy

Where to Find Service Packs For PDX9 and 10
Hi: Just starting using a new laptop and would like to get either Paradox 9 or 10 on it. I have the install disks, but was wondering where I can get the service packs for those versions since it has been 15+ years since they were available. Thanks!

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
