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.

  • No record records showing now.

    I am an absolute novice so please speak in lay terms if you respond. - TIA

    Years ago I developed a program for my business. I copied the alphabetical multistate button and browse from Alphasports where you could push the letter and it would show only the records starting with that letter.
    My table got corrupted and I had to copy it and then delete the old one (it was more than 3 gb.)
    After I copied it this multi-state button would not work although the alphabetize button worked fine.
    I cannot get it to work properly now. I have attached a screen grab because a picture is worth 1000 words.
    When I push any button I get the message "no records found. showing all records".
    If it is the alphabetize button (C) it then works perfectly and lists all active clients in the browse (B).
    If I push any of the letters (A) then I get the above error message and nothing shows - even though I know there are records that meet that.
    I think there is an easy answer but I am such a novice I can't figure it out.

    The following is the onchange event code.

    Thank you for any responses.

    You probably just need to update the indexes on the table.

      Thanks Stan but that didn't work. Any other ideas?

        I have attached a screen grab because a picture is worth 1000 words.
        If so a sample database which displays the problem behavior is worth millions. Make a copy of your database to another directory, remove any sensitive information, delete all be enough records to have something to diagnose. Zip up and attach the sample here and we can trace the issue.

          One other thought. The code refers to a field "fullname". That's probably a calculated field? Is it populated in your new table with the correct info?
          There can be only one.

            Check the form properties to see if the form order & filter is blank or not.

              Great point Robin.

              Alpha has a tendency to leave a filter/order in an object if you use the object in view mode, apply a filter or query to it, and then move to design mode. You make a change that doesn't involve the filter, save the object, and the applied filter/query is also saved.

                Don't know if you figured this out yet but ... looks like you have single quote on the left side of the expression "left(fullname,1) = ' "+ multistatebtn1.text + " "

                  Code:
                  topparent:tables:Master.filter_expression = "left(FULLNAME, 1) = ' " + mulstbtn1.text + " ' "+".and. active"
                  looks like there is matching single quote . ( i have added spaces to the statement to show)

                    Looks like a good instance to use debug to view the expression that is built to see if it is valid.

                    Or use eval_valid() on the filter prior to executing the query.
