graphic readfromfile
I have used graphic readfromfile for years successfully in WinXP, Win7 and, until recently, Win10.  All of a sudden, I get "Cannot read file".  It had worked perfectly until a Win10 update.  Corel support is unresponsive.  Desperate at this point.  Does anyone have a work-around suggestion? Thanks. Bob

Leap year date of birth
To all, I have a report that includes dates of birth when printed.  I have 4 digit year set as true in the BDE. For one particular dob (2/29/1996), the date of birth prints as 2/29/2996!  In the table, it is 2/29/1996.  This is a leap year birthday.  Although obviously not correct, it concerns my users. This report has printed tens of thousands of dates of birth and this is the first one they have noticed is wrong. Any thoughts? Greg

Index out of Date
Hi all, I have run Paradox 8 on a Server 2003 for over a decade using RDP sessions with dozens of users.  I upgraded to Paradox 11 and Windows 10 clients.  All still fine.  This week, though, I migrated my database from a Server 2003 to a Server 2016.  All programs run fine but I am getting multiple index out of dates each day when multiple users save data in the tables.  So far, I have: 1.  Disabled write cache on drives 2.  Excluded database directories and c:\netdir directory from Windows Defender scanning 3.  Edited LanmanServer and LanmanWorkstation to add keys 'enableoplocks'=0 and 'disableoplocks'=1 4.  Local share on BDE=true 5.  All sessions map to the same c:\netdir for control file and use same path to database tables Any help from those who have succeeded with a Server 2016 hosting tables in an RDS environment would be greatly appreciated.

The variable are populated correctly so any advise is most appreciated. son = 22013, sol = 1  , qvar = Query Answer: :CaliachData:rptWorkorders.DB , WORKORDERS.db |WKOWONO | WKOPTNO |WKOBAL | WKOUSER | WKOUSE1 | WKOUSE2 | WKOUSER3 | WKOUSER4 |, , |CHECK | CHECK |CHECK | CHECK |CHECK ..~sol | CHECK | CHECK ..~son| CHECK | Endquery ExecuteQBE(qvar), tv.open(":CaliachData:rptWorkorders.DB") Thanks

filter button disappears when using dialogBox
Howdy.  I've got a form that I use for dataEntry.  When I use a dialogBox routine, the Pdox menu changes and when I close the dialogBox, those menu changes remain with my main form.  The important thing for me here is that I lose the capability to use Filters.  I have not found a way to reset the menu to the correct one.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

you don't want to generically mask something that's wrong.. there's a focus issue here.. are you sure the dialog isn't just minimized, or hiding under the form?

Keeping graphics in Pdox table
I am trying to get graphics data into a table - envision a Movie database and I want to include DVD art into the table.  I am able to get the graphic into the clipboard and then paste it into the table.  Everything appears to be fine until I leave that record - then the graphics that I could previously see is no more.  I've tried everything that I can think of within native Pdox and nothing helps.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

I think you can put multiple table frames in the body.. historically, we've always done stuff like that by manually creating the text file for the report.. it's a ton of work, but then you can literally do anything you want

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.

Complex report filter
Hello again, I need to create a filter for a report from a client list.  The records I want to filter have a string that's common in all the fields I want to filter.  I want to filter on that specific string using the filter function in the report.  I've tried several operators and either come up with nothing, everything, almost everything and then some or everything but.  I even tried the ..*** used in search strings within a table. I'm sure I'm missing something. Thanks, Karen kbalter@sierraonsite.com

Logical Indexes
To all, As I migrated from Paradox 8 to Paradox 11, I noticed that I was not able to recreate one of my secondary indexes in the newer version.  The secondary index included a numerical field and then a logical field.  The logical (boolean) field was not listed as one I could add in the table restructure dialog box.  I went back to version 8 and added it.  Is there another way to do this so that I can retire my older version.

from the help "You can define a secondary index on any field or group of fields in a table except memo, formatted memo, binary, OLE, graphic, logical," in general, I use number/integer/short field with 1/0 as the indicator values.. 1 is true, 0 is false.. probably cuz I go all the way back to the beginning of PdoxDOS, and there was no logical field :-)

I haven't used it, that I'm aware of.. but flipping the colors on a column, or certain records like that, yes, I've done it, it's simple put it in New Value, then it applies to every record.. if this then color=red else color = white endif.. to hide a bigger area, you can have an empty box.. transparent normally, color on color to hide

Change Date Format to 4-digit Years?
We have almost completed our port from Windows 7 and Paradox 8 to Windows 10 and Paradox 11.  I am down to the last few bugs.  One is that all my date queries suddenly produce no results.  It turns out this is because I had been using 4-digit years, and now only 2-digit years seem to work in queries althought years are displayed as 4-digit in the queried table.  Weird. Anyhow, I suppose I could reprogram all date queries as 2-digit years, but this seem like bad practice.  And hard. So, I wondered if there is anywhere that I can easily reset the date format back to 4-digit years?  I already tried the Windows 10 short format, but it was already set to 4-digit years.  Any other ideas? Thanks! Steve

biggest issue, if you change, is sort orders.. first thing you have to do is re-index everything, or you're gonna get errors every time it tries to touch an index other issue, is to actually compare the base 256 character sets, to see if there's anything different, and if that matters in your universe

Paradox 11 SP3?
I have Paradox 11.0.0.676 and thought some of my woes might be fixed with the lates service pack.  I contacted Corel tech support and they said... to contact you!  You are probably either flattered or annoyed, or prehaps both.  Anyhow, is this service pack available anywhere?  Corel had Service Pack 3 for WordPerfect x7 Pro, which I bought, but it does not include the Paradox service pack with it. Thanks!

Printing Error
I recently sent a project designed in P9 to friend and he is now using P11. He gets this error message when printing 1 type of report. The report is a multi page the error does not show in reports delivered in P11. Is there anyway I can get around this error without re devloping the report.  It is very tedious and time consuming report to design. Report: Layout settings(Page size,paper orientation) have been changed within the print dialog. This will require each page to be regenerated. This can take a long time for large reports. Do you wish to continue? Cheers Bill

Paradox 11 not printing to network printers
I have just re-installed my Paradox 11 on a Windowsx64 laptop and I cannot get it to print reports from Paradox reports themselves. However, they work perfectly if I call them up from a form in objectPAL. When I just try to print in a new Paradox sessionm I get a dialogue box that says: Printer interface setup error/ LCAppPrint Initialize failed!  Then Windows 10 just closes the program. I'm not all that good with finding out where my problem lies. Could anyone point me to some solution, please? Tony

most of the examples I can think of, for my recent apps, the print-to-pdf is being triggered manually.. but others are surely doing it in code, and I'm not seeing other instances of pdf failure being mentioned on the various forums also, Brother printers aren't so "standard" thesee days.. you never know....

Printing Issue when migrating from Paradox 8 to 11
Greetings, We used a pushbutton method on a form to print a report in Paradox 8 and Windows 7.  Upon upgrading to Paradox 11 the report began failing with a "#Bitmap7 is too big to fit in report." error.
  • #Bitmap7 is a full-page 8.5x11 image
  • The error is printer independent, and fails even with a PDF printer
  • The report still works fine on any printer if you open the report and print directly from that
  • Shrinking the image and placing it in the middle of the page solved the problem too
  • Recucing the file size dramatically didn't help if left at 8.5x11
  • It must be that Paradox 11 is trapping an error based on image size that Paradox 8 didn't.  Is there any way to prevent it from doing this, or to tell the method to ignore the error and print anyhow? Might there be anything else obvious that I am missing? Thanks!

Running Paradox 8 and Paradox 11 Concurrently?
We are migrating an application from Paradox 8 to Paradox 11 to run on Windows 10. Some things broke, and still need to be fixed.  Since I haven't written any ObjectPAL code in 20 years this isn't as easy as I had hoped.  We are about 90% functional in Paradox 11, but as we chip away at the other 10% I wonder if it is possible to safely run 8 and 11 simultaneously, meaning to pointing at the same tables at the same time? It appears that anything compiled is version-specific, so we can simply use the uncompiled files until migration is complete, except for a couple of parallel libraries that will need to exist.  If this works we will be able to continue to support the mission-critical pieces on Paradox 8 that are still not working on 11.  My big fear is corrupting the data somehow. I appreciate your thoughts! Steve

Thanks!  We'll give it a try.  It is really just for backup in case we are struggling to get something working on 11, we can use 8 in a pinch as we port over.
