thanks.. it's stupid, I agree.. maybe you should make a batch file to fire off Paradox, to keep replacing the file.. there will be windows updates constantly, and you never know how many of them will attack your file

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.

RE: How To use a variable as the n
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

RE: Accessing an FTP with filesyst
I have never checked out Delphi, but I probably should. That's Objectpal based right? I can do everything in Objectpal except the admin issue. I have a hack for it, but it requires user action. And, well, it's a hack..... Let`s just say inelegant.

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

    Does Paradox Runtime SP3 contain a virus?
    First off, I have been including the pdoxruntime9sp3setup.exe file with my database programs as my source for Paradox Runtime.  Is this the best file, or should I really be using something else? I have had a couple of users indicate that this file contains a virus (Trojan).  This was identified through AVG although I'm finding that Trend Micro also identifies a virus or at least remnants of one.  However checks using Symantec, McAfee and Kaspersky do not indicate any threats.  Can someone tell me if there actually is a virus or not?  I believe it is the AxDistEx.exe file that is in questions.  I have seen mention of this issue in one other post, but its not clear to me why some virus programs are picking this up and some are not.

    Hi I would like to have our delivery-note number as the report name, so when we print it with a PDF driver, the pdf attachement would have the same name as it corresponding deliverynote. In order words how would the syntax be for renaming the report before printing ?  Rgds Peter

    Windows 10
    Hi there For those of you still running Paradox I can tell you, that it runs very well on Windows 10. No errors and very fast and stable. No problems with BDE either. Only problem we have is using PDFCreator printing PDF directly in the code. But only in some cases. Need to check my code for this. No need to change for anything else due to new Windows version. Atleast we will stick to our Paradox solution as long as we can. Peter

    For now... a sure shot to get the table lookup to work is start your machine in SAFE MODE

    printerSetCurrent() VERY slow
    Hello All, I am using the printerSetCurrent() function to select the printer that I send reports to. This is great for generating labels or creating PDF files via a PDF "printer". Unfortunately, the printerSetCurrent() function is slow.  In the order of 5 to 10 seconds.   This is a real pain and affects the user experience greatly. Does anyone know of a way to speed this function up? Or is there another work around?  I tried changing the current default Windows printer via the Windows API functions, but once Paradox is running, that setting is happily ignored.   Any help would be appreciated.  Regards,      John,

    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
