Steven, Different Customers/Environments; and, the Pdx 8 Customers are ending the use of Pdx not so far away (and are not on windows 10, yet), so I don't want to invest with a migration. Probably my own stuuf I'll have to migrate. If come up with any solution or this problem I'll appreciate it very much., Leonardo.

RE: Table Structure export
I don't have a canned process for you, but you can do a fs.enumfilelist to get an array filled with table names, then enumfieldnames and enumindexstruct to get the details of the table.  then open those with a tcursor scan through the details and use a ts.writeline to write to the text file. I have done similar to document and manipulate the tables in a given directory.

Hi Bill We still are looking for an answer, so thank you for your reply. Yes, we do use PDF Creator.  So using file system method for renaming is the path.  Thank you.  Peter

Migration from Paradox to Access
Is the following scenario feasible:
  • Keep the existing PARADOX application, but move the data from *.db to MS-SQL
  • Re-program PARADOX-Forms etc. in Access step by step and use the MS-SQL Data in parallel with PARADOX and Access
  • If this is an option, who can support us? Michael

    Migrating to Windows Server2008
    Been using paradox ocx as web server for over 10 yrs on server with windows server 2003(?).  Recently purchased new server.  Have Windows Server 2008 on it.  Migrated entire data and web info from old to new.  Cleaned up and tested all web pages on new server using localhost.  localhost:8081 hits paradox ocx and creates web pages perfectly. Now trying to webname:8081 to hit paradox and not working.  Probably bad description, I'm no good on the server side. Any ideas.  Why does local host see the 8081 port in the ocx but not the webname:8081? Help

    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.

    Paradox on Windows Server 2012
    We migrated from using a run of the mill Windows XP box as a server to Windows Server 2012; one of the applications we use is a simple 3 table database which stopped working the moment the files were being accessed from the new server. We could see data but trying to add anything would result in a Lock Time Out error. I discovered that if I remove Referential Integrity from the detail table structure, and just assign it through the data model on the form, everything works. Would it be OK to leave it like that? or would it be somehow dangerous for the integrity of the data? Could the problem have come from some setting on the server? The person who installed the server for us doesn't think so but I'm not sure he is as familiar with Windows 2012 Server as I thought. For the time being I will be monitoring the data and checking that nothing is lost. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Unable to connect to Paradox table using ODBC
    Hi there, I am trying to connect to a Paradox table in PHP using the INTERSOLV ODBC driver provided with Paradox. I am able to connect to the DSN fine but when I try to run a query, I get this error: , Warning: odbc_[e_xec(]) [function.odbc-exec]: SQL error: [INTERSOLV][ODBC Paradox driver][Paradox]Network initialization failed., SQL state S1000 in SQLExecDirect I have checked my lock files and that my BDE has the correct NET DIR location, which is on our server that houses all of our Paradox tables. I have also tried re-installing Paradox several times. I am able to open the tables from this machine using Paradox with no error so I'm confused as to why this could be happening. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Steven, Thanks for the answer. I ended up solving the problem. The issue was that I was using Anonymous Authentication for the site on IIS and the user that was being used was a user that did not have appropriate permissions to access the lock file over the network. Hopefully this can help others who might run into this problem. Thanks!

    Lock on Paradox Link to Spreadsheet
    I have Paradox 11 and Corel X6 with Quattro Pro. Within the spreadsheet I have several links to Paradox tables. Something got corrupted and the system crashed, leaving me unable to open the spreadsheet, From another work station I was able to open the spreadsheet files and disable the links, which now allows me to open the spreadsheet. But whenever I try to re-establish the links the spreadsheet locks up. Otherwise, everything works fine. I have reinstalled Quattro Pro, Paradox and BDE but that didn't help. The work station has Win 7/64 and have tried to restore the OS to an earlier point but the restore utility fails. I'm guessing that I will need to get the HD reformatted and reinstall the OS. Before I make that leap, has anyone seen anything similar or have any thoughts on how to make the DB-spreadsheet links work again.

    PARADOX 4.5 for DOS on WIN2K
    Sadily we are still running a legacy application that requires PDOX45. Honestly I don't mind since I really love this version. Here is the hitch: I upgraded a workstation to WIN 2000 and now I can't get pdox to run. My command line is f:\pdox45\paradox.exe -extk 16000 -net f:\system\pdox45\ Which has worked just fine for all other W95, W98 and WMe machines but under W2K I get the following error message: Can't Start PARADOX: no directory specified for PDOXUSRS.NET, , Any ideas?

    no, Delphi has nothing directly to do with Paradox.. it's C+ based.. it came from Borland, back in the day, and it works well with Paradox tables and the BDE

    Does Paradox have macro substitution?
    I need to use the contents of a parameter to pull a field's contents. Visual FoxPro uses the & character for that sort of thing. Is there a Paradox equivalent? Edit: Fount it - it's called dereferencing, eg  sField = "Name"   ;Assign a field name to the variable., view(tcCustomer.(sField));Dereference the variable using parentheses. from:  https://www.prestwoodboards.com/ASPSuite/KB/Document_View.asp?QID=101169
