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.

      Hello Jacques

      Waiting on your message!

      I made several years applications in Alpha Four. Enthousiastly started this summer with Alpha Five V5.
      You're welcome in Leeuwarden

        RE: looking for A5 users in the Netherlands

        Thanks for the reply, I live in Sittard, 1km from Germany (kreis Heinsberg). Leeuwarden is is a bit too far away to just come over. Too bad.

        I'm just starting using A5v5, I like the program and I'm thinking of going for the runtime program in the near future.

            I vaguely remember a gentleman from Holland who came to the users conference in March. Is that information available do you know?

                  RE: lookong for A5 users in the Netherlands

                  I started using Alpha Four this year and recently installed Alpha Five. A German colleague made a small application for full text search on a catalog for Library & Documentation. This catalog was downloaded from an AS/400 database and first we tried to make something in MS Access, this however wasnīt satisfactory at all. We made the switch to Alpha and I must say itīs a very powerful product.
                  I am currently trying to directly retrieve data from an AS/400 through a Client Access ODBC driver.

                    my records show that we have about 300 registered users in the Netherlands.

                    I can contact them and suggest they contact you if you are interested in starting a Dutch user group.

                    Let me know if this would be helpful?

                      That would be a good idea. I think we first need to establish whether users are really interested to take part in this.
