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.

    While it is not HanDBase - you might get some useful info from this thread that was just posted elsewhere.

    Re: HanDBase Active Link tables problems

    Paul,

    I have also been struggling with HanDbase with no success, I'm afraid. I just posted a message requesting any suggestions to sync a couple of A5 tables with a Window Mobile device.

    The HanDbase tech support has spent hours with me on this but still no luck. I recently sent them my tables with some real data for them to test.

    I can't believe that no one has figured this out yet. Seems like it would be a very common need among A5 users.

    I'll post a message if I ever get things working with HanDbase. Else, I guess it's back to paper and pencil.

    HanDBase Active Link tables problems

    I’ve been playing Version 9 and will mostly be buying it like every other version to date. I certainly will buy it if this can be resolved.

    I was trying to set up an Active-link table using the base HandBase ODBC driver. I figured this would make a good way to get my ALPHA5 data onto a PDA. Handbase now supports 4 different platforms and has just had a major update with some cool new features, just like Alpha5.

    When using the “Create Active-Link table’ Genie I am getting the following error each time the Genie attempts to retrieve a field list.

    Could not get field list.
    Error reported was:
    Database API specific error [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver does not support this function
    SQL State is: IM001 [HanDBase][HanDBase ODBC Driver] Option value changed.
    SQL State is: 01S02

    I suspect the Active-Link table could be set up without using the Genie, but I think that would be beyond abilities and available time to learn the required details.

    In an attempt to make the problem reproduceable I’ve attached a very simple Handbase database (table). The demo download for HandBase Enterprise Edition which includes the ODBC Driver is available at;

    http://www.ddhsoftware.com/demo.html...ndbase4entpalm

    The OBDC driver I am attempting to use is referred to as simply the ODBC driver. It allows other applications such as ALPHA5 to directly edit the HanDBase Desktop databases files. This data and changes are then synced to the PDA. This HanDBase must be configured in the ODBC Data Source Administrator to point to the actual file or folder with the HanDBase data files.

    This ODBC driver is different from the ‘Sync Exchange for ODBC Database Programs’. Which I have attempted to use in the past but has many more issues, which I won’t go into here and are not ALPHA’s fault.

    Some of the A5 SQL trace info regarding the errors is listed below. It appears the HanDBase ODBC driver doesn’t like the SQl syntax used by the Genies.
