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.

  • Listing your applications on Alpha's Web Site.

    Dear Alpha Software Customer:

    We are in the process of creating an important new section on the new web site we have under construction. This new section will be labelled "Applications".

    The focus on this section will be applications developed in an Alpha Software product by thrid parties.

    When a visitor to the site clicks on this section they will see all the applications listed by name and/or application type (e.g. inventory control).

    Each application will have a link to more information about the applications themselves and will provide information about you(the creator/developer of the application).

    For example if you have developed three applications -- one for medical records, one for the trucking industry and one for contact management, the names of your three applications will appear on the first screen with a hyperlink to the detailed information about the application and about you.

    This new section is in response to comments we have heard from many of you such as “wouldn’t it be great, if developers had a forum to showcase their products” and “wouldn’t it be great if prospective new customers could get a feel for the range of applications that have been developed by third parties”.

    The benefit of this new section on the site will be threefold.
    ·It will help promote you and your company.
    ·It will allow you to use each other as resources when creating applications written in Alpha Five and Alpha Four.
    ·It will give pospective customers a much greater sense of the capabilities of the Alpha Software product line.

    Please go to:
    http://64.225.213.239/apps/devinfo.asp

    to fill in the information that we need to ensure you get listed.

    Please make sure you fill in ALL the fields and provide ALL the information on ALL of the applications that you have developed.

    Also as part of the new web site, we will be creating a testimonial section. If any of you care to submit a testimonial for inclusion in the web site, please email me with the wording of your testimonial. I would be delighted to include it in our new web site.


    Thank you for your time.
    Sincerely

          RE: Listing your applications on Alpha's Web Site.

          I Have used Alpha Software for several years and very much like to list my latest application. This was done for a personnel staffing office and they have been using it for over a year. One problem, I can not afford the the fee right now, if ther is any. Let me know what my options are. Thanks in advance.

              As Robert explained there is NO fee.

              Our objective behind the applications section, is to allow Alpha Software developers an opportunity to showcase themselves and their work, while at the same time informing people about the diversity of applications that are being built with Alpha Software Database products.

              Thanks

                  Knowing what you can achieve will not become reality until you imagine and explore.
