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

let me see if I understand the context, first.. you're using a form to display a lookup table, instead of using the built-in lookup help, and move to the appropriate lookup record, as you move thru the main table.. yes?

RE: Fixed No of Rows in Table Fram
most anything you can change while editing a form, you can change by setting values when you open it.. you just need to find the right parameters to set fm.open(myform) fm.thistext = "Hello" fm.thisfield = "George" fm.wait()

RE: Database not open on executeqb
not familiar with that particular error in that context being common, but paradox has issues in general with network resources that are ID'd but not there, especially printers, and issues with printer names over 32 characters recent Win versions (Win10, Server 2016 and 2019, etc.) all install printers with much longer names than previously, so you have to shorten the names so, most likely, it's not the enum itself, it's what the enum is finding

Hi,

I have started

Hi, I have started look at distributing my program in the office.  I moved the Data tables to the Server, deleted the .NET file and changed the .Net file in the BDE. Forms, files and reports work but it is crazy slow. The desktops are Core I5 250GB Ram and the server is running Windows Server 2016 Does anyone have any ideas as to why it is so slow

Hi All, I'm trying to chang

Hi All, I‘m trying to change the first field in a table which has copied data from another table. I have tried using the following code but it does not change the last record. I have tried this code as a stand alone bit of code on another button on the form and it works. The variable as can be viewed and are correct Paradox  11 is the version. if not tc2.open(":caliachData:CopyWindingData.DB") then errorshow(), else while tc2.eot() = false, tc2.edit() if tc2.fldTrfWdgPartNum = oldpno then tc2.fldTrfWdgPartNum = cpno tc2.nextrecord() Endif, , endwhile, , Endif Thanking yo in advance Cheers Bill

I'll repeat my comments from the newsgroup, we have a different audience here first, you should be using p11 0676, not 0411.. probably minor, if at all, but it's totally external second, I'm not aware of it testing anything "non-paradox".. it's testing that every table is valid, every linked table is valid, and every val file is valid

WordPerfect Office Pro 2020; No Change in Paradox?
Based in part on information from this board, I bit the bullet and upgraded to WP Office Pro 2020 from Version 8. The installation went smoothly, but when I opened Paradox it was still Version 11. Comparing it to my laptop, it's exactly the same release, 11.0.0.676! I then uninstalled and reinstalled Paradox with the same result. Did I do something wrong? Is there a newer version of Paradox, and if so why don't the update program install it? If this is true, then Corel is ripping off customers — I could have saved $100 by purchasing the standard upgrade instead of the Pro version (Paradox being the only difference, I think).

How to Trap a mouse?
Are there any examples of how to trap an event for a scroll wheel of a mouse?, , I am having an issue with users unitentionally adding a record by scrolling the mouse wheel.   The form proprty AutoAppend is set to false,  and I trap Pg up and Pg down keys to prevent this issue.   Unfortunately I have not been able to trap the mouse wheel.

and I know that was the specific reason I turned auto append off on that form.. I remember the problem it created when somebody decided to play "wheel of fortune" on that form (sigh)

Paradox View Setting
Is there a way to force Paradox to open forms in the "fit width" mode? The font it uses otherwise is rather small and difficult to read. However, if I change it to "fit width," it reverts to 100% when I exit and restart the program. 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
