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.

    RE: Duplicating a form

    Thanks to both of you for your response. I got into some more difficulty with this form and Selwyn pointed out that I had an apostrophe in the form name (a NO NO). I did not realize that I had done that but Murphy's law struck again.
    After all of that trouble, I wound up using a single form with two embedded browses, one for check reqs and the other for purchase orders. The user can now see both items that pertain to a single account on one screen.

    This is exacting correct. The only thing to watch out for (and the little trick here) is to ensure that when you want to "Paste", that your cursor is on the form you want to copy. Then - right mouse click and select "Paste". I know it doesn't look right, nor does it follow strict Windows rules, because it looks like you're about the Paste what you first Copied onto the same form, but it will work.

    Good luck!

    This is very simple, mainly because its Alpha. In the control panel select forms; highlight the form you want to copy right mouse click and select Copy. Now right mouse again and select Paste. You will then be given a choice of which table or set the form should belong to. You are bound to have some errors unless every field on the form is in the table you are attaching to.

    Hope this is what you wanted to do.

    Duplicating a form

    I have a form called "Account Summary CR" which is attached to a set. Accounts is the base table and Check Requisitions is the child table. The account data is on the top of the form and an embedded browse beneath it shows the individual check requisitions pertaining to that particular account. I now need to make a similar form but need it linked to a
    set "Account Summary PO", which is essentially the same but shows the Purchase Orders pertaining to the account. I want to duplicate the form for check reqs (it is fairly complex and I don't want to do the whole thing over again) but when I "duplicate" the check req form I can not find a way to link it to the set "Account Summary PO". Is there a way to do this? It would sure save lots of time in cases where the forms were similar but linked to different tables.
