(INI file) Please read, need help!!!
Thread ID: 12369 BZ Dusk (INI file) Please read, need help!!! Hello! I've learned from foxite that in a multi-user env. installing exe's on workstations and saving data on file server is an advantage since it will lessen network traffic and improve application response. Questions: 1. Do i have to create Distribution disks for workstation installation, or just copy the exe from the file server and paste to workstations? 2. If i still need to create Distribution disks, what are the files that i must put into my Distribution Tree? - do i need to include my .scx, .vcx, etc. or just the .exe? 3. Does GETDIR() displays all drives (including network drives?) 4. Yesterday, i searched the archives and i

.prg Vs Application Class
Thread ID: 47756 Andy at Rushcliff .prg Vs Application Class Hi all, As part of a mjor redevlopment of our application in VFP8, I am faced with the prospect of converting loads of functions and procedures currently stored in the classic "proclib.prg", and also loads of public variables initialised in my "main.prg" into methods and properties of my application class. The application is a traditional menubar / input screen / floating toolbars etc. type app. Is there a good advantage in doing this from a performance point of view, or does it just make things easier to manage in the project. The current plan is to have as little code as possible in "main.prg" and to create and launch my application class

_vfp.DataToClip(dbfalias,,3)
Thread ID: 51088 sfx dunoo _vfp.DataToClip(dbfalias,,3) I am desperate I generate reports in excel using 2 ways : 1. I copy over a database report into an excel spreadsheet, cell by cell, row by row This is a task, that takes a long time, because you can see how automation fills up every cell.. 2. _vfp.DataToClip(dbfalias,,3) This is much faster, the entire cursor is copied into the clipboard and pasted into the excel spreadsheet. Advantage of 1 is that field values are correctly transfered from vfp to excel. When you examine a cell in excel that should be numeric, it WILL be numeric. If it has to be text, it WILL be text. With the DataToClip function, all fields will have the general

about SQL Server
Thread ID: 148424 Nilson Rishi about SQL Server Expert, I have 2 questons. Please help. 1.In SQL Server, the comand SELECT* FROM theTable WHERE code='a', returns records whose CODE field is both 'a' and 'A'. It seems SQL Server is case insensitive. It is different from VFP. How could I make it case sensitive? 2. What is the advantage of VARCHAR over CHAR data type? Should I always use VARCHAR? Regards, Nilson

active document / additional & solution
use this on your local intranet I guess there's no harm done. The advantage of this is that you only have to install your app once and can control who has access to the exe. Eventually you could create a login procedure. Boudewijn.Lutgerink@Foxite.com

ADVANTAGE OF VIEW OVER QUERY
Thread ID: 219801 DEREK DODOO ADVANTAGE OF VIEW OVER QUERY Dear Expert, I currently have a query form which a user can select fields from and build a 'query on the fly', however some of the users find it very difficult to understand the concept, someone propose that I use a view instead.

Anchors away (and more resizing)
Thread ID: 117332 George Kelly Anchors away (and more resizing) Finally, its anchors away, and time to play with VFP9 The anchor command in VFP 9 is sheer simplicity, and works a treat when a form in an exe designed for 800x600 is executed in a 1024x768 screen. Its Resized magically. However, the font is not adjusted (unless I'm missing something, since this is new to me) In VFP 7, I redeveloped one of my products to incorporate Marcia Atkins's brilliant solution. See: Thread ID: 110937 Message ID: 110955 Thank you once again Marcia! This had the additional advantage that the font could also be resized. Question is, is there something in VFP9 which offers an alternative to Marcias solution if you

Anyone Heard About Alpha Five?
Thread ID: 78769 Dexter Carlit Anyone Heard About Alpha Five? I'm so pleased if someone can give me an insight about the alpha five application... Whats its advantage or disadvantage also in comparison with Foxpro? I have supposed to be a client that wants to develop the application using alpha five (XBasic) because for him this is the mother of all invention... He also told me that when you were using it you were using like Foxpro, Basic and Access in one with lesser codes.... He also said that even non-programmer may able create programs. It supports client server application and also web application or combination of the two if your going to develop an application it can connect to all known database
