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.

    Save MySQL database

    Hi guys,

    I have a client who is not in my city, and occasionally I would need to have its database. The database is on MySQL, it is possible to save the database in a part of her computer obviously in txt format ? If yes how ?

    Thank you

    Re: Save MySQL database

    hello

    obviously my first question would be, why?

    if you want to have the mysql database in your computer, take a look at replicate mysql or
    the client can dump the database and email that to you and you can execute the sql file and you will have the fresh updated copy. ( i use navicate to dump and execute, lot easier for me, and you can reverse the process so that they will have updated version of the database, should you change any field to your liking.)
    i heard that there is "dropbox.com" where the files can be synchronized. and you will have access to the files anytime you want. i do not use or have any experience.
    thanks for reading

      You should be able to make a backup of the database and restore to your machine.

          Re: Save MySQL database

          I think GGandhi gave you the best option in the circumstances, which is to have your client "Dump" the database they want you to have and for you to "import" that file into MySQL on your end. There's pretty complete information here

            Hi all and thanks.

            Maybe I do not explain me . This customer do not have any experience of computer , if I ask him to make ' a dump of the database or other... no thanks this is impossible to do for him . if I cannot create some procedure from my app that can create a TXT file or dump the database,with simply clicking button on the application, maybe is better that any time I take the train to go in Rome.

              hello


              maybe is better that any time I take the train to go in Rome.
              not necessary, but one time you will have to take the train and go to rome.

              step 1: download and install on your computer "logmein" from http://logmein.com ( there may be other programs such as pcanywhere i have no experience with it so i am not suggesting). free version should be enough.
              step 2: then take the train to rome and working on his computer log into your account and add his computer to your account. use your laptop or other computer to log into your account, if you did everything right, you will see his computer and you can work on his computer as if you were sitting in front of it. (these are the instructions you will be given by logmein when you are adding his computer) additionally logmein works with windows and mac ( i use it on them)
              voila - from this moment on, at anytime from anywhere in the world, where ever you have internet you can reach his computer and see his computer and work on it. create a dump file and send yourself an email with dump file as an attachment.

              also i think, but not sure, replication in mysql is automated. i will take a look.

              take a look at this

                Cristiano,

                Is your client using Alpha? If so, why don't you create an export routine for your customer that dumps the text file?

                  Hi Peter,

                  Thank you for your your suggestion This customer do not use Alpha Five, he use only an application that I build for him. Is for that reason that I would like to prepare a procedure inside the application.

                            So assuming that you are using active link tables go to "Operations" and create an export routine as part of your application.
