MilFlyer, Beware the export limit.  Exporting to the xls format from Paradox will only export the first 16,384 records in a table. If you want to private message me your email.   I have a library that will dump the tables to excel for you.

Please ignore. I ended up solving it after adding the advancedWildcardsInLocate(Yes), and then changing from locatePattern() to simply locate(). I probably made the change prior for some reason haha. Grant

LCAppPrint initialize failed Paradox V11
Back after yeeaars in the wilderness. I've tried this again and get the same result. I can print a report if I do it through and objectPAL script. Load the report and print. But if I just open the report, I get the same result and Paradox closes. Also, I can't print things like info structure. Paradox just falls over.

Could not open Paradox.net
One of our users got a new pc this week.  He has some Excel pivot tables that are reading data from Paradox tables via an odbc connection.  Every time he tries to refresh the data, he gets an error message saying 'Could not open Paradox.net'.  From what I understand, Paradox.net is the DOS version of pdoxusrs.net.  I had the user send me the Excel file and the table it was trying to access and it worked fine for me after setting up the alias that he initially used when he built this pivot table. I had the user search his hard drive for a file called Paradox.net, and one did not exist.  Does anyone have any idea why it would be looking for this file? Thanks, Doug

String search and match with ()
Hi all, I have been trying to solve this one for a while without success. I receive pricelists from distributors that I convert to PDox9 tables, then perform searches for Product IDs to modify my internal table. All works perfectly well, except for the times when the Alpha field I am searching contains a parenthesis " ( or ) " . In this case the search is unable to match the record. I do not see this problem with fields containing  # /.  - = etc. I am using advancedWildcardsInLocate(Yes) for the session. Any way around this? I am unable to change the fields as they are manufacturer product IDs. Thanks in advance, Grant

Paradox 10 hanging since upgrade to Windows 10
Hi, Has anyone managed to get Paradox 10 working satisfactorily on Windows 10? Care to share your setup please? We upgraded to Windows 10 last week and since then Paradix hangs 4-5 times a day. We manage to get it going again by having everyone log off and deleting all the lock files but it's getting a but frustrating. We have our data in a shared folder and everyone is pointing to the same .NET file. I've tried every suggestion I've seen here and elsewhere with no luck so far. Any tips, pointers, suggestions gratefully received.  Thanks  Delordson

Chimney Sweep.. but for most folks, I say that you don't want an automated routine cuz it makes it more likely that you won't actually look at the results after the repair.. REAL damage will show easily, via bad number and date values and/or missing records

Opening A Form
I am absolutely brand new to programming in Paradox. I want to make a Main form. For ease of discussion, I just want to create a form which I have done that has one button. I want it to opne a form I already have linked to a table. I get a syntax error. I cannot find any build as you go coder. I have this and it gives me a syntax error: method action(var eventInfo ActionEvent), open("TestReview Form"), endMethod The form is in the same working folder as this Main form. Does anyone know what the syntax is to simply open a form? No parms passed, just open the form in data entry mode.

first, that code should be on the pushbutton event.. I should have noticed that you put it somplace else second, what is your intended interaction with WP and or QP? third, any modern database platform will usually be SQL-based.. can't make any specific recommendations beyond that

Hello Prestwood,

I

Hello Prestwood, I am once again asking for your support.  During the coronavirus lockdown I decided it was a good time to simplify my reports. One of the challenges I face is a set of 2d bar graphs I have created from a table.  Note my X axis data points will vary greatly: I believe I have run into a glitch I will not be able to fix.  The X axis 'ticks' keep counting but the data isnt showing up. If i play around resizing the graph in design, it may or may not fix it. I would like to sort this out so I do not have to manually involve myself further. I uploaded an image of my issue to imgur https://imgur.com/a/uWrA9rC  (imgur is a safe site, with many photos of cats) THANK YOU

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
