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.

    How can I add the selected items from Check List Box into Browse?

    How can I add the selected items from Check List Box into Browse?
    I really don't think that is what you really wish to're asking to take a list, that is most likely generated by the table the browse is based upon, and add the checkmarked ones as new records to the browse. Unless the dialog box is from a different table....but then that would be quite a denormalized database which I doubt.

    Now if you want to use the list as a filter for what appears in the browse...or even "mark" the browse records that match your checkmarked ones then that is doable by using the variable in the xdialog.

      I assume that is an xdialog checkbox, which I believe returns a string of checked values. You need to parse the string, retrieve the values and open your "browse" table, and enter the records viz-a-vis a loop.

      So the code might look "something" like this:
      vWordList= <<%str%
      vCountWordList = w_count(vWordList,crlf())        ''count the number of words
      tbl =
      FOR i = 1 TO vCountWordList
          vWord = word(vWordList,i,crlf())
          tbl.assign_emp = vWord
      NEXT i
      Except that vWordList would be the checkbox return value variable which would already have your selection in there.

      Make sense?

        P.S. It probably requires one more step, because if your return variable is two fields. e.g.:

        0000000007Felix Tapia

        You need to parse vWord before doing your commits.

          Hi Peter,
          If this list of records is to be added to a separate table as you assumed, then his screenshot is a bit off as it lists 2 of the records that he also has checkmarked......but most likely is the correct guess thinking about it.

            Peter & Mike,
            Thank you

            I want to insert the Selected employees name from the Check List Box to the (Workschedule) Browse. The line #1, 0...7 should be only one employee as Felix.. Line #2, 0...8 should be 2nd employee Fernando, line #3, 0...9 should be 3rd employee Gerador and line #4, 0...10 should be John Koh.

              Thank you for your help. It took me over 3 days to figured out. The xBasic concept is too hard for me.

              P/s: Mr. Mike Wilson
              Thank you for your script as
              "Current_list = All_employee_list - Already_selected_list" in the List Box.

                Hi John,

                Mike and Pete put in a good effort here to get you a result. I'm pleased for you that Mike W. got you a working script, I think it would be nice for you to share it with us in order for others who might be trying or want to do the same thing.

                  Good Morning, Keith

                  Sure. I can share it. I have enclosed the script here. I will make a zip file sometime on today.
