Error to innitialize BDE
Again with me and the XP box I The application we are creating in Pdox9sp3 did work on the XP workstation running from the server. The settup uses a shared IDAPI.CFG on server harddrive thats mapped as G on all the workstations. The IDAPI points to the .NET file thats on G also. Suddenly the app won't run on the XP workstation any more with this error:, , Could not initialize BDE.:, You have attemted to open a database that is in use by someone else, but the database cannot be shared. you must set the location for the .NET control file., , The workstation can access the app and edit the files but the program won't run., , I'm thinking XP's is living on that workstation on borrowed time. Next error i'm whiping it. Harrrrr, , I'll be very appreciative of any help though :)

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

Set Range/Pattern Match
I am working with a PDX8 program which uses Wahl2Wahl's table lookups which work very well. The table lookups do not function correctly on PDX10, the up/down arrows and tab do not work.

Is there a way to code in such a way that the setRange is the default but the user can also type .. to enable the locate pattern logic? method keyPhysical(var eventInfo KeyEvent), , Var,   s  string, endVar,     doDefault,  ,      s = self.value,      ,      ;PART.setRange( self.value, self.value+"zzz" ),    ,       ignoreCaseInStringCompares(yes),       advancedWildcardsInLocate(Yes) ,       PART.locatePattern("DESC",s),   , endmethod Thanks.

Form won't open
Inexperienced user here.  Self-taught, and smart enough to know that I don't know much. Paradox 10 running on Windows 10 I spent weeks developing a paradox form and application for a project I'm doing, then the form simply stopped loading. So I did it all again, spending weeks again. Then it stopped loading again. I can open all other forms in the same project, all tables, and all datamodels.  The form in question worked fine when I had it open last, designing and testing it.  Now it won't load.  All I get is the timer circle spinning, and it won't stop until I go to Task Manager and shut Paradox down.  No error message at all.

Where is Tools | Application Events?
I am unable to find the Application Events option from the Tools menu in P9DE. It is mentioned in the User Manual, the Online help, and in Mike's Power Programming book., , There is a pop-up hint that mentions this option, but it is associated with the newly installed "Workbench". Uninstalling "Workbench" makes the hint that supposedly belongs to application events to move next to Application Menu (still in the wrong place)., , Does anyone else have trouble finding Application Events?, , Thanks,, , DB

Form opening a form and changing working directory
Is this tough to do? Presently we are launching forms from one form but then the orginal form closes. Also we are manually having to set the working directory for each form. Obviously we would like control to return to the menu after the launched form closes and the working directory set back to what it was before. I'm using Paradox 8.00.174.

pdox dos 45 report formfeed problem
When a report should just fit on x number of pages, the last few characters (the exact number varies varies) print on the next sheet. Reports that leave half filled pages print fine., This occurs printing to various HP Laser printers on a Netware 4.11 network. Altering capture parameters has not fixed the problem., , The report will print correctly if a) the user exits Paradox immediately or b) the print job is sandwiched between other print jobs waiting to print., , Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think that the quickest way to get results on this is to either: 1)embed a formfeed command into the report footer band or 2) insert a command in your application code that prints a dummy report right after the end of your mailing label report. The dummy report could be based on a small table that has one text field containing something like "I'm finished" in it. This would force the first report out of the printer.

Problems with newly created application
Hello there,, , I have just completed an application in Paradox 8 using the Application Framework and I am having a couple of problems. When I run the application from our L drive, which is on our network, there are no problems, all the forms work properly and everything is happy. However, when a colleague trys to use the application from his computer he has difficulty. The initial form opens up properly but when he presses the buttons on the custom toolbar that I created nothing happens. Then, when he logs into another computer the application works fine. Also when I log into his computer there are no problems. Has anyone dealt with any problems like this before. Any help would be greatly appreciated., , Thanks.

I don't use the application framework, so I won't be of much help to you here. However, I do know that the Novell Client (4.83) was causing problems with Paradox refusing to load. They patched it, and I had no further problems. Just as a wild guess, I would try reverting to an older Netware client (4.82, maybe).

Paradox 9 IF (iif) statement for report calculatio
I have a database with several TaxTypes (e.g., 01, 02, 03, etc.) that are assigned to some 5,000 accounts. I would like to sum the values associated with TaxType 02 only. IÆve entered the following formula in a calculated field in my report. The formula took, but it doesnÆt work. It included all TaxTypes in the sum., , iif([ANSWER.TaxType]=ö02ö, SUM([ANSWER.VALUE],0), , Excel has a function, sumif, which works well for this type of calculation, which looks like the following:, , sumif(range-of-TaxType-col, ô02ö, sumrange-of-value-col), , Does Paradox 9 have anything that might help?

Multi-user and Win XP
I'd like to use Paradox 9 with more than one developer on the same project. The user manual says this is posible but never says how. I'm brand new to Paradox though. Has any one done this before? We have one PC on Win98 and one running WinXP. Could this be part of the problem? Has anyone ever done multideveloper on an XP box before? Some one told me that XP is not compliant, but Paradox 9 does run on it. Any body got a clue? Help would probably save my job :)

My method was attached at the form level.   Any help would be appreciated.

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

I've have discovered a new error and it would be of great help if anyone out there has solved it before., , After finally solving most of my network problems for developing one app on manny pc's, XP seemed to be playing along for once.

Now the two forms she tried to work on gives the following error codes:, ", G:\Pdoxstuff\OurApplication\App\Holders.fsl, , Open Event, , An Error was triggered in the ‘getLanguageDriver’ method on an object of the TCursor type, , TCursor not opened, ", , Most disturbing to say the least.
