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: Survey Report?

    To make the expression even shorter ...

    Question_1 = "F" .and.
    Question_7 = "Y" .and.
    Question_8 = "N" .and.
    Between(Question_16,5,9) .and.
    Between(Question_17,5,9) .and.
    Between(Question_18,5,9) .and.

    Stans way even shorter yet

    Q1 = "F" .and.
    Q7 = "Y" .and.
    Q8 = "N" .and.
    Between(Q16,5,9) .and.
    Between(Q17,5,9) .and.
    Between(Q18,5,9) .and.

    Good point Stan. Or assign variables.

    RE: Survey Report?

    Hi Lynn:
    Don't let the small price of A5v5 Home edition fool you - if all you build are single user applications then it is essentially the same as the full version - it is a very powerful product. If you imagine that you could have done this project in early dBASE, then you can do it very easily in A5v5 Home edition.

    I can't think of any reason you'd need to split your existing spreadsheet data into multiple tables to do analysis and reporting - except perhaps, to add lookups that explain meaning of survey values (e.g. 1=totally disagree .. 9=totally agree or whatever).

    If your survey allowed for long text answers - memo fields -consider that some developers put memo fields in separate tables.

    Hope you have lots of fun with Alpha!

    Both replies to date illustrate the need for careful thought when designing your import, or possibly the moving of the imported data to another Alpha table.

    I don't know how many questions will be involved in the survey but there is a 1024 character limit in Alpha for expressions. If your field names are "Question_21", etc you will run afoul of that limit much sooner than if the field names are something like "Q01" through "Q99", for example.

    I will take a stabe at a solution. Based on your statement There is a single record for each Survey. Each record is a response by an individual.

    If this is correct you can query the table and set the "filter" based on the logic you have indicated in your request.

    Question_1 = "F" .and. Question_7= "Y" .and. Question_8 .and."N" .and. Question_16 = "N" .and. Question_17 = "N" .and. Question_18 = "N" .and.( Question_19 >5 .and. Quetion_19

    Survey Report?

    I'm trialing the Home Version, and it's been quite a few several years since I did dBase programming, and I didn't have all the menu options (clutter :), just the dot prompt, so I need some starter help, I think, then I'll be okay.

    I've got a survey of about 90 questions.
    I want to generate reports that show correlations of answers, similar to crosstabbing, but with more correlations than the crosstab examples I typically see. For example, the plain English version of some of the queries would look like these:

    - Provide a count for those records with Question_1 value of "M" that also answer Question_16 ">5 and 5 and
