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: enumWindowsNames()
It is quite surprising that being a flagship device of such a well-known brand like LG is coming with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor instead of the Snapdragon 835 chipset. That’s really shocking. But let’s wait for the LG G6 to Release. You can check out the LG G6 Specifications if you want.

How do I set location for .NET control file
When I want to open the files on my server I get the message; "You have attempted to open a database that is in use by someone else, but data can't be shared. You must set the location for the .NET Control file." Of course the file is not in use by anyone else.  I appreciate knowing your suggestions/replies for how to set the .NET Control File location. Thanks

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

    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!

    enumWindowsNames()
    Has anyone experienced a lag or pause while using code that executes enumWindowNames? I've experienced this several times while running forms on both Windows 98 and Windows XP Professional Platforms while using Paradox 10. Is there any way to get around this or a better way to determine what applications are running in Windows. Does enumWindowsHandles work better?, , Thanks,, Beth @ ABP

    Gen Protection fault starting Paradox in W10 64bit
    I have been a Paradox user since the mid 90's and have developed a personal project management tool that I use to execute projects. My company is upgrading my current Win 7 Enterprise edition laptop to a Win 10 64bit Enterprise edition laptop. I tried installing Paradox from Office X7 and it seemed to install normally.  In fact the first time I tried opening it it opened up normally.  I then set the alias paths.  However I then rebooted and attempted to start Paradox I got an Unexpected General Protection Violation error. In fact Paradox has never opened again.  I tried de-installing / re-installing but no change. I tried all of the compatibility modes W7, XP-SP3 but it never makes a difference. I do see that Paradox creates the PDOXUSRS.NET file so it is attempting to start up before erring.  I am seeking help on what I can do to fix the problem.

    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

    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?

    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.

    creating flat file from a normalized table w/ QBE
    Some years ago I saw a query of a single normaiized table that gave a flat file answer table. Presently, I have file that tracks payments and adjustments to outstanding receivables. A single claim may have many payments (either from insurance companies or patients) and/or adjustments (from contract write-offs to collection write-off). I am needing to show for each claim, in a single row, amounts for each type of payment and adjustments. Of course, I can produce this result in a series of queries. And fortunately, there is a relatively small number of payment and adjustment categories, so this is entirely doable. However, I am interested in the technique, as such, that used a "self-join." I've had no success in searching on the internet, in part, perhaps, because I am not even using the right terminology. Thanks, NK

    How do I patch Paradox 11 for Vista?
    Howdy y'all, I was using Pdox 11.0.0.410 on an XP Pro laptop to support infrequent maintenance of a Pdox/DOS app. The disk failed with no image backup. Now using this Toshiba laptop running Vista Ultimate SP2 x86 with all patches. This copy of Pdox 11 came from the WP Office 11 CD. I have the product key. I had downloaded and installed SP2 and SP3 patches for Pdox 11 and now have 11.0.0.410 on this machine. I read in Mr. Prestwood's article about Vista that Corel had released an Installer patch that results in an 11.0.0.411 instance. This instance is working correctly except for the APPCRASH event that occurs in pdxwin32.exe when I exit the program. Does the 411 point release fix the APPCRASH bug? So what's the path to an 11.0.0.411 instance from my WPO 11 Pro CD? Thanks kindly. P.S. Don't really wanna consider upgrading to Win 7 x86 unless absolutely necessary.

    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
