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.

  • Membership Database

    As a brand new Alpha user I have searched through the boards and found a link (which no longer works), http://msgboard.alphasoftware.com/al...rship+database that related to a membership database system for download.

    I to have a need to create a membership database and although not new to DB development I am new to Alpha 5 so a system I could pick apart would be useful, adapt, modify etc. and learn whilst developing before re-inventing the wheel so to speak.

    My question is; Does anyone have such a system they could let me have for this purpose, or does anyone have the original file at the link above that they could send me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Paul:
    There is a sample membership database that comes with Alpha 5 v9. It can be found by going into the Alpha 5 folder (should be in Program Files a5v9), go to Templates folder then into Databases folder. You will find it there.

      Paul,
      Here is the membership program you referred to in your post. I had downloaded it prior to responding to the thread link you gave.

        The files I have in my samples directory are these, but none seemed to be a membership database as such. Which sample did you have in mind?

            I haven't seen the one Mike C sent along, but the one I am talking about is located in the Template folder, not the Sample folder.
