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.

  • Browses and patch 1869 3218

    To save possible heartache !!!

    The release notes for the above advise that there have been major changes in the browse object in this new patch.

    I have just found a show stopper of a problem and have reverted to patch 1847_3216 and all is well again.

    If you are using browses it may be as well to wait for the next patch.

      Sure
      When using find by index on a form containing a browse the wrong record is returned.
      And yes I have submitted a bug report.

        Thanks,

        Tested this on Customer Info (Alphasports) and can confirm same result as you.

        Have now reloaded 1847-3216, problem gone away.

        Is this only on a form with a browse on it?

          Hi Keith

          I think you may have seen my recent 'Lost Data' thread. Yes, in my case it is embedded browses. Either only a few of the records appear, or when closing a form and returning to a browse, the browse order changes totally; and then there was the major disaster of my deleting ALL my records while simply right-clicking on a row and selecting a single record to delete.

          I am glad that several other users are now experiencing the browse issues as I felt very isolated when it first happened and I couldn't understand why and there was no mention of it on this forum at that stage. It does surprise me that I often suffer the bugs a few days or sometimes weeks before they get onto this board. Maybe this is a penalty of developing for your own (immediate) use.

          I shall now do as the others are doing and revert to the previous build. Maybe I should stop downloading the patches as they arrive, and wait instead for you old pro's to get them sorted first...

            Hi Guys,

            See this thread.

            New patch issued. This should have fixed it.
