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.

  • Some A5 tables cannot be selected as a transaction table

    When create new "append" operation using "create using genie", some of the tables cannot be selected as a transaction table. What is wrong with any of the settings. The needed transaction table is an imported table through ADO_SQL command.

    Here's a wild guess. Are your table names using illegal characters?

        While the genies are a nice start, don't get 'stuck' using them all of the time. They have some obvious limitations and should be used to get simple examples from to be used with the operation.

        And by the way, is the issue that the table doesn't appear or that a message is displayed?

        Perhaps an image of what you are seeing would fill in the gaps.

          Maybe the needed transaction table is being imported into a folder that's different than the database folder?

            The needed transaction table is in the default database folder. It can be opened under the Tables/Sets tab and the files location be checked. I just cannot select it using the genie and also cannot select it using the create command with the operation tab. However, when using the old xbasic code and substitute the Master and the Transaction table names and along with their fields, it works good.

              I'm curious if you have to manually "add" the table to the database before you can open it using the Tables/Sets tab of the control panel? And, if you've manually added the table does it then become available to the genie?

                The table was imported by SQL connection command and was already there before performing the append operation. And several other tables (made by dup operation several weeks ago) are also cannot be selected as the transaction table.

                  Th dropdown list is incomplete for some reason, but the first item on the list is <more files>. Choose that option and you'll see all of the tables.

                    Thanks a lot. Your answer solved my big problem. I did not found this statement in the A5 help files. It should be mentioned clearly in the help file.

                      Actually no, because it should work to see the complete list of tables without having to use the <more tables> option. Although mentioning the <more tables> option would be good when it needs to be used to pick tables from another directory..
