    Default Updating Booking calendar for 2019 & 2020

    Our Alpha Five wizard has retired after more than ten years.
    He developed an excellent booking system for the self catering properties that we let on our estate.The booking calendar only covers up to 31st December this year (2018) so we are stuck for recording bookings on the system for 2019 and 2020 which are already coming in.
    Everything else about the program works well.
    Is there anybody who could help?

    Hi Paul,

    It seems this should be something easy to fix, but impossible to confirm without seeing the code.

    If I am unable to contact the retired developer, how can I discover the code?

    I'm going to guess the calendar is accessible via a web-page.
    The question is who is responsible for the website.

    Greg, Many thanks for your prompt responses. We do have a booking calendar on the website but this is not the one run on Alpha Five. We maintain a detailed booking system off line to ensure there is never a risk of it being corrupted or hacked using Alpha Five.

    It sounds as if I need to trace the code from our retired developer if I possibly can. Am I right to presume that there is no other solution? Paul

    The offline application is the one most likely to have the code. Hopefully your former Alpha Five wizard
    left it that it can be maintained by someone other than himself.

    The code is somewhere on your network, most likely accessed via a shared drive.
    The icon/shortcut you use to get to the application should lead to the code.

    If you can get to the control panel and the interactive window or code editor you might check the global variables and see if there is a ending date that can be reset - just a thought...

    I still use Version 9 Paul. I am making a presumption here though as you have posted your request in the V9 area.
    Let me have an email address and I will walk you through what might be possible.
    However, please let me know what your computer knowledge is and what version of Windows you are working on, and if you use Skype.
