    Default Upgrade version problems

    Hello-
    From reviewing many of the messages posted, I can only gather I am not the only one experiencing problems when upgrading to a newer version. I installed the full and runtime Alpha 5 version 10 locally to my machine. I have a database in version 9 which works with no problems, however, my company felt that there are some additional features in the new version we can use later on. The problem is that the new version doesn't handle some of the current form function I have setup in version 9. I have a form that has calculated fields on it as well as non-calculated fields. In version 9, when entering into the non-calculated fields, the calculated fields will change based on the entries. It doesn't do so in version 10 until you click to save the record. This isn't beneficial since we need to see the calculations happen on the form to determine what course of action to take next. In some instances, the save will not display the updated values until we close and re-open the database. I assumed the upgrade will not take away from this process but assist to enhance it.

    Is there some kind of process I should have went through (importing database) for upgrading to version 10 from 9? Re-creating my database into version 10 is time consuming.

    Thank you-

    Neecy

    Hi Neecy,

    It does help us to help you by keep telling us what did or didn't work in another version.

    The issue is how do you make it work now.

    May I suggest you look at the OnChange event for you fields and Refresh actions for your form.

    In version 9, we came across a bug in the drop down option. The Alpha certified contractor submitted an email to Alpha database about it in which we were told it has been corrected into version 10. We just recently obtained ver 10 about 3 weeks ago and I installed and started using it within the last several days. I am testing our current database in version 10 and have come across the following:

    *Calculated fields on my tab forms doesn't update based on entries of the non-calculated fields.
    *The final script for packing my table generates an error that the table is being used in another process, which it's not since the preceding script closes it.
    *Email feature setup had to be reset in version 10.

    I am surprised by the refresh action since version 9 doens't require it

    Thank you-
    Neecy
