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.

and a comment.. trying to learn paradox at this elementary level today is pretty pointless.. it's been a dead platform for almost 20 years.. those of us still in the game are supporting VERY old, and usually mission-critical, apps

It's completely a dead platform I know. I am a 25 year COBOL programmer. I just downloaded Word Perfect X9 professional and doing merging. Usually I do the quattro pro .dat file but Paradox still comes with Word Perfect X9 when you download it. What would be an equivalent database with forms etc I should use to interface with Word Perfect. I still cannot figure out how to open that form with a button.

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
