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.

                Jack - that did it - thanks - i thought all the functions were meant to be local, from the script itself.

                am also looking forward to a calendar addin

                    The calendar is in xdialog, and I don't think there is any way to print an xdialog like a form. There are ways to create reports that are similar in design to the form, so maybe someone can post some report ideas.

                        hint: it will be easier to make your report if you construct another table specifically for the report, and copy records to that table.

                          RE: Dr. Wayne's Calendar

                          On the calendar I have working, when I add a new apointment and goto the "time field" no "time drop down" appears, whereas when I edit the same appointment there is a drop down for the "time field"

                          is this correct? I have been looking at the code to see if I could figure out how to add the feature - but I'm can't figure it out.

                            figured it out - here is a modification for the function:
                            calendar.new_entry

                            note that it "requires" both a time and appointment description, that could be changed to not required for one or both items.
