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.

    Cannot Create an INDEX over a SET

    For your review, I have creatAlphaTestdb[1].ziped a NEW folder, files, and a set.

    When I try to CREATE an IDEX over the SET, nothing happens. I can create over the files but not the SET.

    Have been trying to decrypt what is happening for a week.

    Possible clue: Looks like one of the PC's on this network, was running A5V11. Could that have affected the SET ?

    Now, no matter what folder or database I select, I cannot create an index over ANY SET.

    ???

    Re: Cannot Create an INDEX over a SET

    The set is populated at execution.
    Therefore, it is not an indexable item.
    The primary table in the set will have the indices.
    Alpha shows the option in my configuration to create an index over a set, but it cannot, only the primary table.

    So, what index construction are you trying to build?

    If you want an index on the primary table in the set, but only want to show specific child records, a Filter on the child table is what you need.

      Can you be specific about what index you are trying to build - fieldname / expression, table, - a few snapshots or a video?

      That exact index can be created on the primary table but not when ou try to create it through the set?

      I can build indices through the set on the primary table in your example.

      Previously you stated that this occurred in only one instance - a certain PC. Is that still the case?

      Tell me why you want to create through the set and not through the primary table.....

        Larry,

        I can create over the files but not the SET.
        What is the "files"? Did you mean at Table, right?

        There are limit to create the Index from (base on) a " SET ". you can not see the child table's field lists from "SET"

          It appears that Ted may have had the answer. However, now, when I run the application and select maintenance on the file, I get the message... "NO RECORDS IN QUERY". I don't have a query that I know of.

          ???

            What is maintenance on a file? It's part of the application?

            Why not do these things from the control panel instead of within the 'application'?

            We have no idea what the application is doing when you select maintenance. Obviously something other than it needs to do to allow what you want.
