Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    Re: Submit New - or Rather Saveas New

    No that's not the idea at all. A common use would be to open existing record, change the customer info, save as new.

      you mean the customer is new, and copy from an identical record from the past and recreate the new customer charges as it was in the other record from the past since the service will be identical. but not the payments correct? (or may be the deposits were the same too, then copy the payments too?)

        Yes it is reasonable to assume an identical charge and payment of course a check number and payment details might vary a little but the idea would be to have an invoice (record) open and you make a couple of edits and simply save as new. This is handy when you give a secretary a stack of invoices for data entry.

          okay here is something for you to try
          create an ux do all the stuff you need to do and an enter an actionscript to save the data to the back end, fill in the popup change to enter a new record.
          now place the cursor on the actionscript and convert it to xbasic. say yes to the pop up. now scroll down in xbasic and look for a line that says
          dim pNRO.cloneExisting as l = .t.
          probably line 75 change that from .f. to .t. ( I already did that )
          now save the ux and run the ux you will have an empty ux and fill it out and submit. when done all the fields will be the same you can change some and resubmit.

          I tested this with a single table. I will test for you if you cannot succeed with an ux with repeating section(s)

          This is handy when you give a secretary a stack of invoices for data entry.
          this should help that

                  Man, unfortunately this has to take a back burner - but rest assured it is marked to re-visit. I was working out a few kinks with Canadian address entry in my app and another issue where customers of my sass users login and can create a service request that will show up in the jobs list and calendar (Jim Coltz Calendar btw)
                  so as I said I am busy as always but this particular need is going to take a back seat for a few - thank you for these ideas. This is another benefit of this forum!
                  So when I can spend the time to get this working I will test it and let you know what happens and if it will work in the long run for me. This was and is an interesting idea.
