View Full Version : Several questions ...

1. Has anyone had success with spell checking in RTF memo fields. When I click on the spell check icon, the system locks up, and I have to exit a5.

2. How does one apply new patches to the runtime?

3. What are the recommended steps for setting up the runtime on workstations? I have setup the server with the runtime and the data resides there.

Hi Gary,

For question 2:

I believe you just need to run the patch where the runtime is installed and the patch will do the rest...

Just a word of appreciation... I've learned a lot from your posting in this board.. Just want to say thank you...

I've just done a simple test for your qeustion 1:

Found that it works fine when I execute the spell check on a simple form or browse. However, nothing seem to happen when I get run it over a set.

But never has Alpha lock my system up...

What system you are running?

There may be several reasons that your system may hang on you:

1) you might have uninstall programs and the OS did not do a proper clean up to you PC.

2) you application drivers were not properly updated ...

When this problem occurs in sets, how do you have the set/forms structured?

I tried doing this with Alpha Sports and had no problem.

I have about six tables all linked up( in a set).
fields in the first two tables are placed(As it is)in the Tabbed object, the other four tables are placed in the Tabbed object using browse.

All fields I have not checked the "Don't Spell Check".

When I execute the spell check, the dialog box did not pop up at all.

Is this what you want from me ...

Thanks Chris. I have been able to get spell check to work quite nicely now.

Thanks in advance
