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.

    no codes in the code page only on 1 computer from a network

    This is a rare problem!
    the sever and all workstations (except for one workstation) work fine, on the one workstation the code tab is empty and none of the scripts/functions/menus etc work.
    i copied the entire app folder in to the local workstation and the same problem no codes! i copied that folder on to another workstation and it works fine on that workstation...

    any clue?

    After you copied the app to the problem workstation did you open it with the desktop shortcut or open Alpha first and navigate to the database? Check to verify that the shortcut opens the database you think it should.
    There can be only one.


      Re: no codes in the code page only on 1 computer from a network

      Thanks Stan

      yes i did open it from Alpha not from the shortcut
      also we uninstalled Alpha completely and reinstalled
      the strange thing is that at first the .ALM file size when looking on the actual server was about 17KB but from the workstation (in the server folder) it showed only 1KB the same was with the copied folder on the workstation the size was 1KB, only after renaming and deleting the file the size changed, but all that did not help, i even renamed (in the copy on the workstation) the app files .ADB, etc

      the IT guy will be checking for any virus and if nothing helps they will reinstall windows
      BTW it is Win7 and Alpha v10
      thank you

        You might double check the path settings. It sure sounds like you have two copies of the database, and you're opening the wrong one.

        From the control panel in Alpha choose tables/sets tab. Right click white space, choose View, then Details. The center column will show you the physical path to your tables. Are they where you expect to find them? Is it the same path used to store copies of the database dictionaries ( .adb, .alm, .alx, etc) ?


          Re: no codes in the code page only on 1 computer from a network

          we tested that by adding/changing files in both directories and both updated
          also all the Alpha data files (dbf) are the same, and changes are seen in both

          thank you
