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.

Help on Embedded Browse

  • Help on Embedded Browse

    I designed a browse with a filter so the browse only shows records within a range. As a browse it works fine. However, when I embed this browse on a form the filtering does not work properly. This is driving me nuts. Any ideas on why not ?

    James,

    Sounds like the filter and sort order criteria applicable to your form are over-riding the named browse you embedded in the form. Could also be a problem with the way the set of tables is linked, since the linking arrangements will trump everything else you might try when working with a form based on a set.

    Can't offer specific advice without seeing your database.
    You might consider posting a working model here.

      Assuming the embedded browse is to a child table or even back to the table itself, try putting the filter in the link definition.

        RE: Help on Embedded Browse

        I've been wondering about the implementation of this as well. I need a couple of embedded browses for a set form. These will list the most recent records from two tables for the past two months. Do I need to put the date filter in the index for this and rebuild the indexes regularly?

        I think that will work, but I was hoping for something that would update a list of dates automatically. Are the browse filters like a query in doing an update when needed?

          Dave,

          Help me understand what you mean by, "update a list of dates automatically".

          Knowing what you can achieve will not become reality until you imagine and explore.

            OK guys .. my situation is not associated with any "Set". Just a simple data table.

            Tom : I don't follow the Form having a different filter (query) ?

              Thanks Guys ! Problem Solved .. I think Tom put me on to it. I just ignored the fact that there was a filter on the embedded browse and inserted a query by form using the same filter as I had on the browse on the form.
