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.

      Re: AT seems great. Why no posts?

      No, Peter I haven't.
      Having tried it I was very impressed but as you may know, I use a different web and mobile product.
      If I could see an easy way to use AT to front end a SQLServer16 Db, I would think again.
      Uploading photographic evidence is my goal at present.

        I don't know, Ted. I'm thinking $40,000.00 is not too bad for Developer and IIS. And $40,000.00 is not too bad for a renewal. But I'm drawing the line at HALF A MILLION BUCKS for Transform Unlimited. Given my budget. You know what I mean?

          You don't think that the marketing department screwed this up just a little do you?

            Im assuming that is some weird screw up on the website. Alpha Anywhere cannot surely be that expensive, especially when most services these days are moving to a monthly subscription model to remove the barrier to entry that a 40K lump sum would be.

            Or am I missing something?

            We also havent bought transform yet, or tried it out. But I cannot really see a use case for it as we dont often fill out a form that we dont need to edit again.

              The real price for a 3 user pack is $35/month Jonathan.
              As far as using it, although I don't use that product, the focus on forms seems a bit limiting to me be but it's their marketing department and they sometimes get it wrong I suspect.
              If this was my product, I would have made it adaptable to front end any major Db type. I think that the Phonegap side prevents that but I could be wrong.
              As an example, I would use it to capture and upload evidential images. It does a lot more than just forms.
              Working within the Native Shell of a phone or tablet is a bit of a "black art", so this no-code solution takes a lot of the pain away.

              Suggest you devote 1 hour on the trial app, you may see other opportunities to use it in anger. It is really easy to set up.
              Not selling it you understand as I have my own different toolkit already paid for.

                  There are all kinds of things AlphaSoftware is doing with Transform.
                  I believe you can still get a one year "sandbox" license so you can kick the tires.
                  I believe Transform can be used as a quick,robust front-end, complete with functions,
                  methods, and APIs.
                  I'm sure if you send an email to guides@alphasoftware.com they will either get you
                  a license, or in the alternative, let you know where to send the email to get a license.
                  Last but not least, they do have the TransForm Tuesday webinars each week.

                          The $500,000 price is for a special purpose unlimited SKU.

                          The price starts at $35/month for 3 users for commercial use and goes down with volume.
                          There is a reseller program, which further reduces this price.
                          Testing, development and personal use is free with a sandbox license.

                            The pricing page makes it sound like it is 35/user per month. Does anyone else read that like I do?

                            How do you obtain a sandbox license?

                              Does this mean 35 / month that covers 3 users.
                              I am a one man band.
                              Still a bit out of my reach though.
