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.

  • How to let it change after post and edit data later.

    Hi all,

    I have a invoice set the structure same as AlphaSport ; g1invoice_header (parent) and g1invoice_items(child) I post the member_id, date, and pay_method from g1invoice_header to G1invoice_items with this script below as the cansaverecord event code (field rules) for the g1invoice_items table

    if is_object("g1invoice set form")
    tbl = table.current()
    tbl.member_id = member_id.value = date.value
    tbl.pay_method = pay_method.value
    end if

    I also created 3 fields ;member_id, date,and pay_method in G1invoice_items
    to receive the data from G1invoice_header when it posts the data to child table)

    After I try to post data many times (create new invoice, key in data, and save) I found that

    It can post the data (Member_id, Date, and Pay_method ) from G1invoice_header table to G1invoice_items table correctly BUT

    I found that if I come back and edit the data in G1invoice_header and save it again later. The data cannot post to G1invoice_items it can post only one time.

    How can I let it automatically post the data from G1invoice_header table to G1invoice_items every time I edit and save the data (Member_id, Data, and Pay_method) in G1invoice_header.

    Try this. I added onchange event code to the pay_method, date, and mem_id fields on the invoice form. When you change any of the three for the invoice the change will be written to all of the items for the invoice.
    There can be only one.

        I try the attached sample , In design mode of invoice form I added the script for 3 fields ;Date,Member_Id,and Pay_method by right click Event---> OnChange and use the below script

        tbl = table.current(3)
        while .not. tbl.fetch_eof()
        tbl.pay_method = pay_method.value = date.value
        tbl.mem_id = mem_id.value
        end while

        After I save the script ,go to browse mode and create a new invoice (just key in first,not come back to edit the data) during I key in the data it has an error below.

        "Script:OnChange line7
        Command does not work in change or enter mode."

        and after I click the error it has more an error below

        "Error posting to table G1product for record 1 error change already began"

        If I don't added the script Event OnChange on form, I can use the invoice with no problem it can post Date,Member_Id, and Pay_method from G1invoice_header to G1invoice_items but the data in G1invoice_items cannot be changed if I edit the data in G1invoice_header in invoice form later.

          In your set is the invoice_items table in the third position down like AlphaSports?

          tbl = table.current(3)

          Note that the script is trying to post to the product table in your database.....

          "Error posting to table G1product for record 1 error change already began"

          You also need to change this line

          tbl.mem_id = mem_id.value

          to reference your member_id field and form objects.

            Due to for the first time I don't know the meaning of (3) the third position of the G1invoice_items table in the set. Now I change it to (2) because my invoice_items table is the second position in the set and it works great now

            Many many thank you Stan!
