1. The Future of Paradox Blog

If you have an existing Paradox system you can keep using it but you'll need to skip the Vista operating system and either stick with Windows XP or move to Windows 7. Because better tools exist, you may very well want to put a plan together now for converting to another development tool or at least understand what the future is likely to hold. If you're a power-user or researcher working with data, stick with Paradox.

3. Failed Hard Drives and RAID If you've used computers for more than a few years, you know that you don't wonder IF a hard drive will fail - you wonder WHEN. It just happened to me - again. But this time it looks like the results will be pretty painless. The reasons? * RAID Level 1 * Superb Hard Drive manufacturer warranty support

4. 2 of 2, AppName 1.0

Step 2 of 2: Build-It

  • PSDP Initial Coding Phase: Build MVC shell with user management and login. Build data migration program. Build initial forms. Alpha builds. Add mobile readiness.
  • PSDP Testing & Rework Phase: Beta builds with optional double entry alongside existing application.
  • PSDP Deployment and Maintenance Phase: Deploy. Establish maintenance plan.

Step 2 of our 2 step is used to complete an application by building it. This step 2 project ticket is created during discovery, during step 1 of our 2-step process. For projects over 500 hours, we break up our step 2 of 2 into multiple projects of 500 hours or less. In which case, the App Tickets option on the application menu tracks overall progress.

This project ticket documents requirements in App Artifacts. However, there may be some completed requirements in previous projects including step 1 projects, which is appropriate. This project also documents any tasks that are required to complete the project including PM, testing, and deployment. The combination of tasks and artifacts in this project represent the project plan for building the app.

If the client has authorized work, it is set to In-Progress and work can start as soon as resources are ready which means, depending on billing relationship and approach, this step 2 build project can overlap with a step 1 discovery project. If this ticket is not authorized, the printed version of the Project Plan is the Project Proposal for Building of the next version of the application.

Danny Keen
Paradox books by Dan Ehrmann or ??
I want to learn how to expand my basic knowledge of writing queries in Paradox. My company's application operates on Paradox and I want to learn how to really manipulate the data available. I've been told that two books by Dan Ehrmann are good, but out of print. "Paradox Queries--The Basics" and "Paradox Queries--A Developer's Reference". If anyone has a lead on either of these I'd appreciate knowing., , Bob

in many situations, an empty table can cause an error when you try to address it's field values, especially if you're in View mode and there isn't actually a record there.. it's more obvious when you scan an empty or filtered table

Paradox Report (.rsl) to Crystal Reports (.rpt) ?
I am beginning to get more comfortable using Crystal Reports 11, which has a similar feel to Paradox's built-in Report designer. My question is, does anyone know of software to convert simple reports created in Paradox (without any extra programming) into Crystal Reports format?  I just want the basics (groups, breaks, detail field placement and alignments, format, etc.) to copy over. Thanks!
