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.

  • Different results from same publish

    I have a real puzzler. I have published the same application to my localhost and to my test server. I am running the same SQLServer database for both. The puzzler - when I run a query, I get different results. On localhost, it runs fine. On my test server, it comes back with "no records in report". I tried to upload a screenprint, but the forum just gives me an error when I try to upload. It also won't let me delete previously uploaded files.

    The connection strings may not be in sync or there may be a security issue.

      Re: Different results from same publish

      I don't understand what you mean. How can the connection strings or security be different when it is the same database and I published the same application?

        Look under tools/AlphaDAO Connections.

        Then look under profiles/Named AlphaDAO connection strings/AlphaDAO Connections.

        Do they match?

          Yes, they match. Both Localhost and the Test server get data on other screens, but localhost gets results when run reports and test server does not.

            Are you running the report the same way? Are the variables being set the same way local and on test?

              I used the exact same criteria for the reports on both the local and on test. I re-published again this morning, paying close attention that all the publishing factors were the same. They were. Test had same results - no data on reports.
              Published all files in project
              Published Workspace library
              compiled functions into an .AEX file

                if you have modified the report the library needs to be published.
                would you check and see if that is published when you publish, you can check before you click ok button I think. include workspace library in the publish dialog if it is not already checked.
                thanks for reading

                  I did include the workspace library (reports) because I knew I had modified them. I used the exact same publish values/checkboxes for publishing to both localhost and test server within a couple minutes of each other without any code or report or any other changes in-between.

                    Solved problem by re-booting the test server.

                      I hate when that happens.
