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.

    Yes, in the script design window and the interactive window.

    That doesn't work either, same error message.

      Re: Subelement Not Found

      I just reread your post.

      Please do not use the interactive window.

      ? t.change_begin()

      would have to be:

      t.change_begin()

      You need to remove question marks and highlist the whole script to run in the Interactive window.

      Have you made a backup? This should only hit the first record, but I don't know if you have this looped.

        I think you will need to give us (well me) a copy of the table.

          Re: Subelement Not Found

          I copied the entire script to the interactive window and pressed the Enter button after each line. The are the first few:

          dim t as p

          t = table.open("summarytest")

          t.change_begin()

          t.contract = ""
          ERROR: Property not found
          t.contract subelement not found.

          t.applydate = NULL_VALUE()
          ERROR: Property not found
          t.applydate subelement not found.


          I attac a file in a few.

              t = table.open("summarytest")
              ? t.field_name_get()

              Will dump the summarytest field names to the interactive editor.
              There can be only one.

                Your table and script work perfectly, here.

                Try your script with the attached table.

                Create a new folder, a new database in that folder, and add this table.

                Then copy your script and try it.

                  Attached is a zip file of the table with 35 records. You may have to copy the script from above.

                  Thanks much.

                    Your script works perfectly on your posted table.

                    I did change the name of the table from:

                    'Null Test'

                    to:

                    'NullTest'

                    as I didn't like the space in there

                      Try closing Alpha again.

                      I get the feeling you might be tainting your results by using the Interactive Window.

                      Try just the script window.

                        I downloaded and your script works fine, even in my database. Perhaps the table has an issue so I'll work with it a bit and report back. Thank you for your assistance.

                          Check the field rules and table events in the field rules.

                          Good luck.

                            I removed the field rules one at a time. The error kept popping up until they were all deleted until except for the autoinc field. Did a db compact and the ran the script and it worked. Well sorta. I only worked on the first record. Does the script need to be changed to include all fields or is it supposed to null the fields in all records?

                            Thanks again,

                              Called a loop, Ken.

                                Kenn,

                                I wonder if the error message you were seeing happened because you might have been trying to assign a value (i.e. null_value() ) to fields defined as "calculated fields" in your table field rules? You can't do that of course. Assignments to calc fields are forbidden.
