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.

  • Report From ResultSet

    Hi All,

    The code I pasted below is querying records from a linked access table with and writing to a local alpha table. I am using the local table as a record set for a report. This script is running very slowly, approx 5 minutes to process 1000 records. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I might get this data to the report more quickly. I would be willing to eliminate the local table, just not sure how to go about it. The WHERE clause is populated by form variables.


    Dim cn as sql::connection
    'Opening a Connection
    flag = cn.open("::Name::conBMSII")

    'Executing a Command

    Re: Report From ResultSet

    You might try it as

    Code:
    dim tbl as p
     tbl = table.open("tblBudget",FILE_RW_EXCLUSIVE)
     tbl.enter_begin()
    
     tbl.account = rs.data("Account")
     tbl.lev1 = rs.data("Level1")
     tbl.lev2 = rs.data("Level2")
     tbl.lev3 = rs.data("Level3")
     tbl.lev4 = rs.data("Level4")
     tbl.lev5 = rs.data("Level5")
     tbl.lev6 = rs.data("Level6")
     tbl.desc1 = rs.data("Desc1")
     tbl.desc2 = rs.data("Desc2")
     tbl.desc3 = rs.data("Desc3")
     tbl.desc4 = rs.data("Desc4")
     tbl.desc5 = rs.data("Desc5")
     tbl.desc6 = rs.data("Desc6")
     tbl.transdate = rs.data("Date")
     tbl.ytd_budget = dblBudgetYTD 
     'tbl.ytd_transfer = dblTransferYTD
     'tbl.ytd_offset = dblOffsetYTD
     'tbl.ytd_ammendment = dblAmmendmentYTD
     'tbl.ytd_balancetransfer = dblBalanceTransferYTD
     'tbl.ytd_refund = dblRefundYTD
     tbl.ytd_modifications = dblModificationsYTD
     tbl.ytd_paid = dblPaidYTD
     tbl.ytd_encumbrance = dblEncumbranceYTD
     tbl.curr_paid = dblPaidCurr
    
     tbl.enter_end(.t.) 
     tbl.close()
    Actually you should probably open the table before the while loop and close it after.

    dim tbl as p
    tbl = table.open("tblBudget",FILE_RW_EXCLUSIVE)
    while flag

    'stuff here

    end while
    tbl.close()
    There can be only one.

      Alpha using SQL is notoriously slow.
      To speed things up you could import the whole linked table as a dbf and then process it, or
      Export from the Access table to a CSV or Excel (very quick) and import to Alpha and then process.

        Ted,
        The actions as you describe, take time too!
        Wouldn't it be better to use an active link table.

          Re: Report From ResultSet

          Everything takes time Jo. As I said and have experienced, SQL over Alpha Linked tables is very slow.
          An export from Access can be done with one click once it's set up. An import to Alpha just the same, and the data management script can be added to the import script so it's automatic.
          At 5 mins/10000 recs, that's tedious and should probably be done overnight if you stick with the link and sql. I know it's only 0.3 secs per record, but that is a pain nowadays.

            Re: Report From ResultSet

            Forgive me if I am far off in another land.
            You said linked access table in your first post and talking about active linked table with Ted, so you are using active linked tables as far as I can see. If this is correct why do you need to connect using sql connection, then convert to alpha table to produce a report? If I understand correctly the advantage of active linked tables are that you can simply open with table open method, correct? Then you can build report directly without converting to alpha table, am I not right?

            If you are not using active linked tables, then you can query access table using connection property and create a report without an intermediary alpha table using sql data source as source for the report, that I do when I create a report with MySQL it is the linked table that I am not sure of. Let me if I am wrong in my assumption.

            Edit: the first post and last but one are under two different user names, I mentioned as a single user.

              Re: Report From ResultSet

              Thank you all for your suggestions. I would like to eliminate my intermediary table (tblBudget), but I am unsure of the syntax to either send a filtered record set, based on an active link table, to my report or the syntax for using sql data source without the need for the intermediary table. Any code examples of either or both scenarios would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.


              PS - Basically, I am looking for a way to call the report from my form and pass it the form variables to be used as a report filter, but I am unsure of this syntax. I do not want to use the ask command as I have 2 populated combo boxes on my form.

                report.PRINT( Layout_Name as C [, Filter as C [, Order as C [, Argument as SQL::Arguments ]]] )

                  Thanks All for he help, this is the solution that your suggestions created, I populated the report filter the report designer through the select records icon:
                  SelectRecords1.gifSelectRecords2.gif

                  Where ACCOUNT is a table field and strComboStartAcc and strComboEndAcc are both global variables populated on the form that calls the report. It populates the report much more quickly than the result set I had been using.

                  (ACCOUNT >= Var->strComboStartAcc ) .and. (ACCOUNT <= Var->strComboEndAcc )
