    Default Looking for Alpha 5 users in Bflo

    We are looking for Alpha 5 users here in Buffalo, NY
    This program was handed down to me and so I am still not familiar with how to create things. Need any help I can get.
    Thank you,
    Patti Post

    Patti,

    Welcome to the world of Alpha5!

    How are you wanting to use Alpha5?

    Will you be creating an application/database from scratch or will you be deciphering someone elses work and making changes to it?

    Louis

    Hi Louis,
    Thank you for the scary welcome. Just kidding.
    This program was handed down to me just about two years ago, and the data bases are pretty big. I have learned to make some minor changes and adjustments, but I know absolutely nothing about X-basic or any other progrram language for that matter. Sometimes I scream at this program. the other day I lost my front page that links all my forms together with buttons to click on, and the pres wants it set back up that way. It was a nightmare. I thought I lsot years worth of data. Thankfully I can still work to get in them all through the control panel.
    We have been looking for someone in the Buffalo area for over a year now, and the only user group we could find was in Cleveland. So this will be nice to know that someone is actually closer to call? Maybe? It's been an experience for me. That is for sure.
    Hey thanks for replying.

    In this day and age with the internet, e-mail, pcAnywhere type connections and the ability to burn large files on a CD, I am not clear as to why you would need someone local.

    We do not have the luxery of "always on line" email, we do not have a CD Rewrite, our internet is hooked up to a separate computer also, and I needed someone to walk me through the start up of a new main menu page, or come in here and just do it.
    I also did not know that no one gives out their email address directly. I've never done this msg brd thing before either.
    It would also be nice to know others in the vicinity that have this Alpha5 in common.
    Thank you,
    Patti
