Thread: Heap Lock Failure error. Why?

    Default Heap Lock Failure error. Why?

    When I go into the memo field, type whatever in there, and then hit Save Record, I get a message "Heap Lock Failure" and I get a dialog box with the Okay button. I have to hit the Okay button to get out of this error message. After I do so, I lose ALL the text I typed into the memo box in the first place! Why is this happening?

    In my database I remember in Alpha 4 I could search by index. How do I search records by index in Alpha 5? Has this been taken out in this version? Another thing I could do in Alpha 4 was search by serial number. I can't seem to do this in Alpha 5. Has this ability also been taken away in Alpha 5?

    Any help on these questions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Joseph,

    'Search by index' is called 'Find by Key' and it's alive and well. Set your index, run it from the tool bar.

    You might search this forum and the Alpha Five Version 4 forum for message threads dealing with 'heap lock'. There have been others questions on this, so maybe the solutions found there will help you here.
