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.

  • Email function to loop through invoice items on web server

    I remember reading about an email function to loop through invoice line items that are related to a parent record and send them from an A5 web server in an email, but I cannot find this function in help or on the forum. Is there such a function?

    Re: Email function to loop through invoice items on web server

    I used the following code on the A5w page, and it works well:
    Code:
     tbl = table.open("[Pathalias.ADB_path]\web_total.set")
    query.filter = "order_numb = \"" + session.cinvoice_num + "\" "
    query.order = ""
    indx = tbl.query_create()
    
    tbl1 = table.get("cust_ord_web") ' get pointer to parent
    
    tbl2 = table.get("products") ' get pointer to child
    
    
    dim line_items as c
    items = ""
    while .not. tbl.fetch_eof()
    items_i = tbl2.New_code + "   " + tbl1.Quantity+ "- " + alltrim(tbl2.long_name) + "-" +alltrim(tbl2.section)+crlf()
    items = items + Items_i
    
    
    
       tbl.fetch_next()
    end while
    line_items = items
    email_body = stritran(email_body,"[line_items]", line_items)
    items_i includes any fields from tbl1 or tbl2 that you want to include in the confirmation email.
    The email body looks like this:
    Code:
    email_body = <<%text%
    Ordered by: [First] [Last]
    Thank you for shopping at [company]!
    This email confirms your order, # [invoice_number].  Your Customer ID # is [id_number].
    Your grocery order will be delivered on [delivery_day], [delivery_date]
    during period [delivery_time].
    If you need assistance, please call [telephone].
    We look forward to serving you.
    Items Ordered:
    Item #  Quantity  Item Description        Section
    [line_items]
    %text%
    Multiple stritran expressions, as shown above, are used to fill in the email.
    I then use the email_smtp_send method to send the email.

      Re: Email function to loop through invoice items on web server

      Hello Richard,
      Thank you for sharing this script! I expanded on it a little. This may need a little "cleaning up" but it works great. Here is what I did

      dim vFilter2 as c
      vFilter2 = "Permissions= \"JobSeeker\".and. Emailblast = 'Yes' .and. Bstate<>''.and.Bstate<>'11'"
      eids = table.external_record_content_get("[pathalias.adb_path]\users", "ssn","ssn",vFilter2)

      For each y in eids
      jsemail = alltrim(lookupc("F",alltrim(y),"alltrim(email)","[pathalias.adb_path]\users","ssn"))
      fname = alltrim(lookupc("F",alltrim(y),"alltrim(first_name)","[pathalias.adb_path]\users","ssn"))

      dim vFilter as c
      emstate = alltrim(lookupc("F",alltrim(y),"alltrim(state)","[pathalias.adb_path]\users","ssn"))
      vFilter = "jobsresume= \"Jobs\".and.Poststatus = \"Active\".and.site_state="+quote(emstate)
      uids = table.external_record_content_get("[pathalias.adb_path]\posts", alltrim("postnum"),"company_name+job_title",vFilter)

      For each x in uids

      dim tbl as P
      dim qry as P
      tbl = table.open("[pathalias.adb_path]\posts")
      query.filter = "Postnum="+quote(x)
      query.order = "" '(I already set the order above)
      query.options = ""
      qry = tbl.query_create()
      tbl.fetch_first()
      dim line_items as c
      dim items as c
      while .not. tbl.fetch_eof()
      if tbl.Job_start_date<>ctod("")
      vStart = "<font size=2 face=Arial><strong>Start Date: </strong>"+tbl.Job_start_date+"</font>"
      else
      vStart = ""
      end if
      if tbl.Job_wage<>""
      vWage = "<font size=2 face=Arial><strong> Wage: </strong>"+tbl.Job_wage+"</font>"
      else
      vWage = ""
      end if
      if tbl.Site_phone<>""
      vPhone = "<font size=2 face=Arial><strong> Phone: </strong>"+tbl.Site_phone+"</font>"
      else
      vPhone = ""
      end if
      if tbl.Site_phone_ext<>""
      vPhoneex= "<font size=2 face=Arial><strong> Phone: </strong>"+tbl.Site_phone_ext+"</font>"
      else
      vPhoneex=""
      end if
      vAbb = tbl.Site_state
      items_a = "<strong><font size=3 color=#ff6600 face=Arial>"+w_upper(tbl.Company_name)+"<BR>"+ crlf()
      items_b = tbl.Job_title+"</strong><font size=2 face=arial> "+alltrim(tbl.Site_city)+", "+tbl.Site_state+"</font></font><BR>"+crlf()
      items_c = vStart+vWage+vPhone+vPhoneex +"<BR>"+crlf()
      items_d = "<font size=2 face=Arial>"+substr(tbl.Job_description,1,200)+"</font>" +crlf()
      url = "http://www.socialservicenetwork.com/JobsBrowseGenView.a5w?postnum="+alltrim(tbl.Postnum)+"&ssn="+alltrim(tbl.Ssn)+crlf()
      jlink = "<a href = "+url+"><font size=2 face=Arial>More Details</font></a><BR><BR>"
      items = items + Items_a+items_b+items_c+items_d+jlink
      tbl.fetch_next()

      end while
      line_items = items
      dim email_body as c
      email_body = stritran(email_body,"[line_items]", line_items)
      qry.drop()
      tbl.close()

      next x

      Mailblast = lookup("[pathalias.adb_path]\counts","Recnum= 1","Mailblast")
      dim pm as P
      pm.lrelated = .T.
      pm.from = Mailblast
      pm.from_alias = "Job Updates for "+fname
      pm.bcc = Mailblast
      pm.to = jsemail
      pm.subject = "Your weekly jobs list for "+ vAbb
      pm.qq = file.to_string("[pathalias.adb_vString]\AdmMailBlastJobsWkly.htm")
      pm.html_message = evaluate_string(pm.qq)
      email_send2(pm)

      next y

      The resulting email is in the 1st pic. 2nd pic is the html form created in FrontPage
