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.

  • Error Layout name; report nameLayout type; report

    I have been using a developers version of alpha 11 for a project for several years. I installed the runtime version on a separate system and everything has been fine until this morning when I tried to email a report. I get this "Error Layout name; report nameLayout type; report" It will show the preview but nothing after. It will also print to pdf using the microsoft PDF printer. It works fine on the developers version so I copied and moved everything to the new system and it still does it. Windows 7 for development and Windows 10 for runtime

    Any help is appreciated

      I believe I've seen other threads suggesting that a Windows 10 update will cause trouble with the Amyuni print driver and suggests reinstalling.
      There can be only one.

        would that mean reinstalling the runtime or just the driver. If I wanted to move the development version to the desktop and put the runtime on my laptop is that possible?

          I tried to reinstall the driver to no avail and tried to update to a new driver also no luck. I did a reinstall of runtime and it is back to working again. I don't know if there might be a issue with Alpha and Quicken that also use the Amyuni Document converter. there are two version on my system. Never been a problem in the past but maybe with win 10 it causes confusion.

            FYI: I just did my first installation of version 11 on a brand new windows 10 computer. I could not get the report to preview and be saved as a PDF. Uninstalled the Amyuni driver etc with no luck. Just before removing and reinstalling the runtime, I opted to just rerun the patch, "a5v11_RTPLUS_patch_3788-4187.exe". This fixed the issue. The PDF is opened in Edge.

              Make sure you are running the last maintenance available update for v11. I had the same behavior and found I hadn't installed Build 3381/Addins 4096.
