G'Day,, , Well Here I am. My speciality is Access I have been developing databases on a semi-commercial basis for about two or three years, although I started in computing prior to IBM PC's., , For work I am in charge of building / selling commercial swimming pool filtration plants., , Other than play with my computer, I have been known to sing a little opera, or according to my wife a lot of opera., , Anyways that's me, just a bloke who's learnt a bit.
Hello folks,My name is Paul Barfoot. After reading what great coding skills many of you have my opal skills seem so very limited and perhaps of limited or no value. I have written some Applications using Paradox 7 then delivered with Paradox 11 for use with Paradox 11 Runtime. I am 67 and have about 5% vision due to RP and that has rightly or wrongly kept me from expanding my skills and being chained to the keyboard even more than now., I have a simple personal accounting program and Last Will App on my web site that Iwould really like someone to look at. A local Accountant said he couldn't get it up and running so he couldn't appraise it. so I'm wondering if I should forget about it.If anyone has the time to check them out that would be a boost. Even if you consider the applications worthless. I need an honest opinion. I have used the accounting program fro years so I know it works just fine.www.pkwapps,caCheers,Paul aka Pkw
Thank you Nicole,
Any advice or encouragement will be most appreciated.
I am of course willing to pay whatever fees are involved
( within reason ) for an evaluation of Pkw Personal Accounting by one of the
many experts. here at Prestwood.
I found Prestwood several years ago but I never introduced myself.My name is Daniel and I've been coding in Delphi on and off, but mostly on, since 1997. At the time, COBOL and BASIC was what I was coding in a client-server environment, before most people even knew what nTier architecture meant. Heck I didn't know, but was doing it.Someone in another department came up to me, presumably after seeking permission from my manager, and asked if I knew Delphi. I said, knew what? Having never heard of Delphi I said no, but was anxious to do something new, so I was transferred to the other department.I didn't what the future was for Delphi and it wasn't to be a .Net, however, Delphi has found me and paid me well over the past decade point five.Take care and talk to you later.
I've seen some of your posts before, but thanks for the intro. My experience isn't unlike yours. Before Delphi, I was coding mostly in C and C++; also client-server systems.
I attended a show in San Francisco where Borland was handing out pre-release disks of Delphi 1. I installed it and started playing. I wasn't eager to learn a new language, but once I saw the power of Delphi's RAD environment, and OOP without pointers...
I just migrated from 9 to 11 under XP. I have a report that prints a phonograph record album and counts the tracks if I have updated the contents of the album. Under 9 the report shows "0" if no tracks are available. Under 11 it defaults to "1" when no tracks are updated. Can anyone help.
File-Inventory - Master
File-Contents - Child
Report has a "defined Field" to count normal the number of records linked from Inventory.
There is no special coding other than what is prompted by Paradox.
I am not technically savvy so please bear with me. What can I send to be more specific
