you can't change field type in a query.. you need to do it in a scan.. for instance tc.open("mytable") tc.edit() scan tc: tc.b3 = numval(tc.pipe) endscan tc.endedit() tc.close() needs more whistles and bells to trap for errors

RE: Paradox 10 hanging since upgra
drive letters are fine, as long as they're all the same if it's dropping out, check for network cards that have "sleep" modes, machines that go into "sleep" mode, etc

RE: Populating drop down from a ta
offhand, no.. so much depends on your context and level of knowledge a simple idea might be to use a pop up form, that you CAN filter, then pass back the selected lookup value

RE: enumTableProperties(propTbl)
I think for modern systems, larger block sizes simpify everything.. some of my older tables have become more stable with 16k blocks, but not all.. the one thing about old tables, they only make case sensitive indexes (x0* instead of xg*).. that can make for inconsisent search/range/filter results.. and the possibility that some "corruption" is just different tcursor filter results and no, I have no idea what the bookmark thing is.. it's been so long, can't even remember thinking about it.. but if you compare the results to table level, it'll probably make sense I'm leaning more and more to SMB2 as being a factor.. by default, oplocks and caching settings have been reversed.. that can't be good for concurrent writes.. absolutely can't be good

I have not used that funtion in many years.. my first guess is that it doesn't understand the file type.. remember, this is 25 year old technology, based on simple bmp logic

BDE LANGDRIVER
Anyone have an idea of what the difference is between these two drivers are? 'ascii' ANSI     vs   Paradox 'ascii' The reason for the question, I have recently seen sporadic issues with the former, but have had inconsistant results when testing for the issue. For instance  SetGenFilter(Some_DYNARRAY)  might, and I emphasize might,  give errors with the former,  but does not with the later. With the latter, When exporting a table to excel, if a fiels is blank, data equal to one space is exported,with the former an empty string is exported. Just hoping to get a handle on how these are different and if possible,  how to change or check the the setting when the paradox application launches.

RE: .. used alone in QBE
no, we can never fully anticipate what something like this was trying to achieve :-) @.. will only return non-blank .. should return everything, it should be meaningless, but you'd have to give it your own once-over.. wierd character set? wierd field content? wierd developer knowledge? I'm always finding time bombs in old code, but this one SHOULD be ok

RE: BDE LANGDRIVER
I don't remember exactly, offhand, but your excel example shows that there obviously are differences.. sort order and/or slight character replacement are the two possibilities all my tables are paradox ascii.. there should be one of those old display table options, to show you the first 256, etc.. it's been a long time since I looked are the errors 'different character' errors, or 'wrong table code' kind of errors?

> Kept getting an error that we couldn't open PDOXUSERS.NET < either the workstations reporting that error haven't been configured properly (open the BDE and set the correct path to the shared NET file), or the changes you made have left behind the old lock files (check the "private" folder for two *.lck files and delete them)
