In Topic: function exceeds workspace

07 September 2012 - 09:08 AM


Over the years we have had this error and at times I thought it was due to function size but we had it on functions a fraction the size of yours.

It usually seemed to be due to the function doing something inefficient with e.g. an array or large record.

With reports we tended to create an update to write the selection to temp files and then create a report to just read the temp files.

I imagine you don't fancy rewriting your report....:lol:

That's a good suggestion, might try it out. We are busy making revenue from other sources at the moment. Our client has been taken over so our voice doesn't carry much weight... plus ca change!

They are negotiating with the supplier of the new system. Not unusual for these things to drag on or be less than successful of course....

I have heard some good things about Aurora. Our client tends not to take our advice though...

Thanks for the suggestions Darren. We did a report to extract the filehdr & filedef data and it's a good start.

Re version 6/7 - alas our client is migrating to another system .. they won't know what they've got till it's gone of course... :)
