    Default Export Operation cannot be accessed in V9 trial version?

    Hi everyone...
    I just downloaded V9 trial....and its not allowing me to access the Export Operation.....
    Is this because it is a trial version?
    Or is there something wrong here...

    I never noticed anything being disabled in the trial.

    Where are you trying to find the operation? If you select "New Operation" in the "Operations" tab, what does your screen look like?

    Thanks for responding..

    All the other operations work fine.
    Its only the Export records operation that seems to be disabled.
    The dialog box wont show up.

    Ironocally the the "import data.." under 'file' doesnt pop-up either.

    I went back to V8 and both work over there....

    Importing definitely worked in the trial... but then that was a few builds back... What build are you using, and does it work if you either install the latest patch or go back to a previous batch? http://downloads.alphasoftware.com/a...chDownload.asp

    Maybe there is an Imprt / Export Driver that needs to be installed perhaps...

    I'm reinstalling again to see if it makes a difference...
    I'm mistified to say the least..

    When I opened the first DB that I created on V8 on V9 it asked me if I wanted to "migrate" the db... I wonder if this had anything to do with it..

    I'm figuring Alphasoftware has disabled the import and export of tables to and from sql in the trial version...
    Damn! For me to try and see if I want V9 I need to migrate my tables.
    I will take your advise and try a earlier build.

    Thanks Andrea..

    There are no limitations to the trial. How are you trying to do this. You must CREATE an export operation, before you can run it.

    Just try it with one of the sample databases that comes with A5, or create one with a dummy table from scratch...

    I go to the operations tab.
    I click new (for new operation)
    Then I chose "export records"
    which brings up the export records dialog box.
    Then I click the "create" button.
    The dialog box disapears....
    Thats it....

    The same is true for the import data... tab under the file menu...

    Sorry if this an obvious question, but sometimes I spin my wheels by not asking. You do have active link tables set up in the database you are trying to export from? or DBF Tables?

    Also what happens if you create using the Genie?

    hmmm Maybe Alpha has removed some funcionality to discourage people from using is tempoarily to do conversions and never purchase the software.

    I will downlaod and check on another system and let you know. Give me a 5 minutes and I will be back

    Andrea you were right.
    I went to a previous build and both the import and export dialog boxes pop up....

    My guess is that the import & export has been disabled in the newest build...
    I wonder why....

    Confirmed. In the demo version , the latest build the export function does not work. It is not likely disabled to prevent people from using this as a conversion to (to or from SQL) without being paid. This works fine in the latest build of the licensed version.

    I have closure on this issue... and wont have to spend endless hours trying to figure out if I did something wrong.

    I've gone to a previous build and am exporting tables to sql as we speak.

    Thanks so much...

    My best,

    it is a bug. export should not have been turned off. after we release the next update (probably later this week), it will be turned on again.
