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.

  • Report Page Numbering using System->PageXofY

    I am using Alpha 5-Home Edition. I have created 2 reports in a db. Both of them have the page number in the page footer, using the PageXofY feature. On the single column report, the page numbering if fine. With the other report, the deatil is printer in 2 column, the page number starts at "page 2", but it contains the records as if it were "page 1".

    Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

    Charles,

    I don't understand what you mean,

      Ah...OK,

      I think you meant With the other report, the deatil is printed in 2 column? YES / NO?

      There's no detail in column 1?

      How did you set up the report?

        The report that prints ok has a single column of detail, with the page header and footer extending across the whole page. The report with the problem has 2 columns of detail, but the page header and footer extend accross the entire page. The page number element has been placed in the page footer on both reports. On the 2 column report, the page number begins with page 2. I think I have selected all records to print in both cases.

        Thanks for your help

          The detail prints in both columns. The report is a directory, containing name, address, phone information. The detail seems to display correctly, with all records being included in the printouts.

          In the "Report Properties" option, "Report" tab, "Has Detail", "Balance Column Height" are checked, and "Columns in Report" is set to "2".

          Does this info help?

          Thanks again.

            Charles,

            If you didn't solve this, can you post a zip file so that I or others can take a look at it?
