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.

  • 403 Forbidden - Again

    I know this has been covered, but none of the solutions discussed so far work.

    I have a page that simply prints a .pdf. When I call the page, I get this:

    403 Forbidden
    Your security credentials do not allow access to this resource.
    - PDFs are allowed -- in fact other pages are producing PDFs just fine.

    - I've revised & uploaded page security settings several times, sometimes with "Always Allow", sometimes with "Login Required." No difference.

    - I've tried putting some debugging code on the page as simple as this:
    Code:
    ?"Show me this"
    end
    but no joy. Still 403.

    I'm outta ideas. Anyone got another?

    Added on:

    And on a possibly related note:

    Earlier today I was printing another report as a pdf with fine results. But now when I try it I get this:

    500 Internal Server Error
    "Script Error
    Error:
    Amyuni Low Level Print:
    Layout name: MyReportName@f:\MyReporting.set
    Layout type: report
    Argument is incorrect data type"
    (names above have been changed to protect the innocent)

    Gonna be cheaper for me to hand-deliver the *&@ pdfs pretty soon...

    Try looking on the server at the Pages.SecuritySettings, see if it includes that file with proper settings. I find that the security files don't always refresh even if you check the appropriate boxes.

          I'm suddenly getting this on a simple grid! I placed a "if,then" in my Afterupdaterecords. Works when I comment it out.

            There is no "if, then" instruction in Xbasic.

            If you did this:

            Code:
            if somecondition, then
              do stuff
            end if
            You should have done this:

            Code:
            if somecondition then
              do stuff
            end if
            the difference is in the comma in the first line.

                Steve, when I get this message, it ususally means that it can't find the page, not security on the page at all.

                Sometimes I spell the name incorrectly, and sometimes I get the path spelling wrong (including [PathAlias.ADB_Path])

                  Re: 403 Forbidden - Again

                  The security is tested before the server even tests if a page exists. If a page isn't listed as allowed or requiring login in the security, it returns "403 Forbidden - Your security credentials do not allow access to this resource".

                  The most likely cause of the error, as Pat points out, is a missing or misspelled page. If the page never existed, it isn't going to be listed in the security.

                    Eric,

                    You've got to be more specific and provide as much detail as you can. We cannot guess what your code looks like inside or outside of the IF THEN.
