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.

    Re: a5v10 to a5v11 ?

    Are you trying to open an v10 backup (like you seem to suggest) or are you opening a v10 database?
    There is a difference.
    In case you are trying to open a v10 backup: open it with v10, and see to it that it is properly placed on your harddrive.
    After that, open it with v11 and go further from there.

        When I try to use V10 in my Win8
        Because V10 is not directly compatible with Win8.

        Try running in Win7 compatibility mode.
        There can be only one.

            Run programs made for previous versions of Windows
            If you're having trouble running an app that worked in a previous version of Windows, you might be able to run it in a compatibility mode, such as Windows Vista or Windows 7 compatibility modes.

            Troubleshoot for app compatibility
            1.From Start, swipe in from the right edge of the screen and then tap Search (or if you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then click Search).

            2.Enter troubleshoot in the search box, choose Settings, and then choose Troubleshooting.

            3.Tap or click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows.

            4.Follow the steps provided.

            Apply a compatibility mode
            If you know the compatibility mode that your app needs to run, here is how to apply it:

            1.From Start, enter the name of the app you want to run in compatibility mode, and in the search results list, swipe down or right-click to select the app, and choose Open file location.

            2.In File Explorer, swipe down on the app or right-click it, and choose Properties.

            3.In the Properties dialog, choose the Compatibility tab.

            4.Select the compatibility mode and other options you want to apply, and then click OK.

            In addition to different operating system compatibility modes, you can also run apps in reduced color modes or with administrator permissions. You can apply the settings for everyone who uses the computer or only for you.
            There can be only one.
