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.

              Mike,

              could i please download your A5V5 version. I'm trying to upgrade our A5V1 to A5V8 just to test it, but it seems that i need A5V5 as an intermediate upgrade to convert the database.

              Thanks.

                  Lenny,

                  What Dexter is looking for is a full version of ver5, not just the patch. He is attempting to use ver5 as an intermediary between ver1 and ver8. Ver 5 would take the ver 1 tables and sets, and give the user the option to convert the forms, reports, etc. Apparently, ver8 doesn't offer that.


                  By the way, nice title...

                  Tom

                    dexter,

                    I have the A5V5 Trial version* install file yet--as it is a 30 day trial just let me know (private message or email) when you would want me to have my server up...Use the link from post #2 to access. The latest patch file is also being shared on the server.






                    *Alpha consented to allow me to share the Trial version.
                    Mike

                      I have Home edition Version build 1506 and System Addins Build 1508. Does it require a patch? If so, does someone have a copy of it?

                          I just installed V5 Home Edition on my new computer. I was directed to this thread to download the patch. I did this but it is for the full edition. Could someone please direct me to the patch for the Home Edition? Thanks.
