Upgrade Paradox BDE?
We use Paradox 10. Paradox 10 uses BDE version 5.1.1, , My Question is this can you upgrade to version 5.2 with upgrade paradox?, , I don't really want to change anything in paradox, I just want the lastest BDE. Is this possible?

Just a quick addition to Rick's post. Here at Prestwood IT Solutions, we always stay up to date with the latest versions of the BDE so this shouldn't be a problem at all. In fact, it may make some problems go away.

Assisted dialing using the PC speakers
I hadn't been able to "1 click" dial a phone number since paradox 7 - 16 bit. Since then, I went cable modem (no more modem anyway) and in the last week developed a quick "dialer" of sorts (if focus is on a record with a valid phone number, a "Dial" pushbutton appears). , , It works - but it's pretty ugly. My big problem is that for each tone (pair) to be played, OLE launches the media player - "plays" 1 number, exits, then must launch again to play the second number, etc., , My question then: Does anyone know how to or if its even possible to launch the media player once - then pass the tones to it (wav files) with appropriate waits in between? (-And when done - then close the media player-) , , Thanks.

Paradox 9/10/11 and Vista and Win 7
I found a press release today on the Corel site from about a month ago with this interesting sentence:[quote]In addition, Corel has also released a special update for Paradox X4 that optimizes the database application to work with Windows Vista.[/quote] and later on[quote]In addition to downloading and installing SP1, customers who wish to run WordPerfect Office X4 Professional including Paradox X4 on Windows Vista should contact Corel to request a specific Paradox update that optimizes the software to work with Microsoft's latest operating system. Offered on CD, the update is available free to registered users in North America by contacting Corel Customer Support at 1-800-772-6735.[/quote] I only have X3 and I don't yet have Vista. Has anyone got the update and tried it? whole press release - [...Corel deleted or moved press release...]

Barcode only works with asterisk
Hi We want to bring our order-number as a barcode on paper. The number is an Integer in the field. For this we use a Code 39 font, and the barcode looks all right on paper, but can not be read by the scanner. Only if we change the field to Alpha and put in * as start and stop character it works. Any idea how to aviod the asterisk, and anyone who knows a font where it works 'out of the box' ? Can the setup for scanner be changed  ? Using PDX11. Best regards Peter

CheckRow Failing
Anybody know why the query method CheckRow will not work? I have had problems with this in the past and have worked around it but it is becoming a real pain in the ass., If I print a message of the method return it says "True". But the query doesn't work and if I write the query it to a file and open it it later says "No checked fields". Looks like a bug to me. Any help would be appreciated. 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.

procedures
I purchased you book on Paradox 9, Power Programing. I need some reading on creating procedures that can be called to do a function and return several answers. Right now I have one big program that runs and works, but I would like to break it out into procedures for ease of maintenance. I could do it in Pascal, but seem to be having issue with Paradox only RETURN one answer. IE read a number convert first 4 digits to sales number and last 4 digits to item number, and make the whole thing variable. The variable I have., I am converting 4.5 to 9.0 and book did the job so far. Maybe next level of book?, , Thom

Install Fonts Programmatically ?
Does anyone know how to programmatically install a Font to Windows?  We know to copy the font files to the c:\Windows\Font folder but from there?  It seems that you must manually go to the Font folder and double click on the font file to register it in Windows before it will be available to other applications.  There must be a way to get around this manual process? Thanks, Beth

Unknown internal operating system error
I cut and paste images into an image field on a Paradox form and I've been doing this with no problems for years; yesterday I got a message saying 'Unknown internal operating system error' with a reference to the .MB file, when I tried to paste an image in. Paradox hung. After restarting, I verified and rebuilt the table and it imported the image ok but when I tried to do it with a new record the same thing happened. I'm using Paradox 10.0.0.663 running on a Lenovo laptop with Vista Home Premium and Service Pack 2. The database has 121,900 records in it but not all of them have images. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.,

Thanks!  I've used ChimneySweep before (probably have a license for it!), but I'd forgotten about it.  Thanks for the heads-up/reminder!  I'll check it out.  (As I recall, it was very useful in fixing things that the built-in "fixer" couldn't fix.  I'll try to dig it up & see what it can do with these memo fields!) Thanks again! Aloha, -pt

Paradox DOS 4.5
Greetings!, , I have just logged on to this board for the first time., , I am an ancient programmer and have stuck doggedly to Paradox DOS 4.5. My current data base has 286 scripts in 6 libraries and countless data, code and template tables., , I updated my hardware last week and am trying Windows XP. To my surprise, PDX DOS works in this platform. But I have a problem with calling MS programmes from within it. Under Win 98, I could "Start WinWord.exe xxx.Doc". The DOC is set up to merge with data exported from PDX to a DBF file. I cannot start winword now., , Is anybody else still using Paradox DOS?, If so, any ideas?, , Thanks., , PS: To Webmaster. Am not very proficient at using stuff on the Web. I am trying to post an introduction message and my apologies if this message is in the incorrect context.

so it sounds like i must have had pdox win on this machine at some time, or that SmartManager program put it on and uses the idapi.cfg. probably the former, since one of the drivers in the window is pdox.   i'll have to play with it a bit!  thanks for the info ~kimmer

Recent Windows 7 updates crashed Paradox 11?
I dual boot WinXP Pro X32 and Windows 7 X64 Pro on separate drives and run Paradox 11 from WP Office X3 on both.  I mostly use XP and  there are no problems with Pdox after those updates but when I went to use it under Windows 7 today the Project Viewer showed no files in the working directory. Until now there was no problem with the Windows 7 installation.  I uninstalled and reinstalled Pdox and then tried to set Project Viewer to the proper working directory and it crashes.  I've tried this several times.  If I open a table with Explorer Pdox will start and open it but if I try Project Viewer it crashes.  I went to check the BDE settings but I can't seem to find BDE in the control panel or anywhere else in Windows 7.

Temporary table resource limit
Hi I have to say I'm not much of a DB user. I play mostly in spreadsheets (QPW8 is my fav). Anyways I was assigned the task of importing a txt file with 4.1 million records. I have pumped up the BDE settings and am using the updated BDE. Thru truncating some fields I was able to get 3.8 million records out of the file before a table full error. My goal is to get as many records as possible, and then query them into a variety of smaler tables., My real problem is when I try to do anything with this table .. sort it, query it, whatever. I get a "temporary table resource limit" error. BTW, I'm using PDX 8 though that seems to matter. Ironically I also tried to import this file into Firebird SQL but it choked at around 2 million entries and it's just as finnicky. It seems large tables are taxing to just about everything. I have half a mind to try MySQL on my websirte server location but that's probably just as limited.,

Hi Jon, Verify the debugger is not set to open in run nor design modes. Select Tools | Settings | Developer Preferences. Make sure Open in design and Open in run are not checked.
