Topics I've Started

Report Page Break

15 June 2005 - 08:02 PM

I need to force a page break for a report I have written.

I have tried the PAGE_BREAK() that I found in the logic documentation but it gives me a thread exception.

The documentation is not very clear where to place this in logic.

Any ideas?

Active X Progress Bar

15 March 2005 - 10:56 PM

:) I have implemented several Active X Controls, but I am unsuccessful at implementing the progress bar.

You can only have active x on screens.

How do you communicate from an update (long running) to a screen and update the progress bar?

Same for long running reports.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Hurray, Hurray, Hurray

:eek: I may get Blasted from some of the old dogs for what I am about to say but here goes.

Hurray, Hurray, Hurray. It has taken me three years, but I finally unpluged our old Green Screen application.

All of our remote sites are now off of unix and are now running Windows Advanced Server with Web Client and are 100% GUI.

Our Main Office is still unix and 100% GUI, but by the end of this year, it to will move to Windows Advanced Server.

With our Main Office on Unix, it to is running Web Client. All of our Development is on Windows Advanced Server and ported to unix.

I built our GUI environment so the User never has to use a mouse if they dont want to. The still have the speed of the Green Screen data entry, but use accelerator keys for all buttons.

.(Period) Enter and /(Slash) Enter have been disabled.

Again, Hurray, Hurray, Hurray.

CLIENT.PUT

30 May 2003 - 05:47 PM

:eek: I have used CLIENT.PUT("C:\DATA\myfile.txt","C:\MYDATA\myfile.txt") which works just fine.

However, I want the user to supply the file name to retrieve from their client.

I tried $FILENAME = "myfile.txt" and built this
CLIENT.PUT("C:\DATA" + $FILENAME + '"', "C:\MYDATA\" + $FILENAME + '"').

It resolves the name correctly but does not exexcute.

Any suggestions would really help.

DDE Insert Picture in Ecxell

27 January 2002 - 03:55 PM

I am trying to insert our company logo into an Excel Spread Sheet that I have built thru our ProIV application.

I first selected the starting row and column and the ending row and column where I wanted to insert the logo picture using DDE_EXECUTE.

The macro sentax for inserting a picture is INSERT.PICTURE(file_name,filter_number).

File_Name is a text field containing the file name.

Filter_Number a number corresponding to the type of picture.

A .BMP is 1

$TOPIC = 'EXCEL'

$APP = 'SYSTEM'

I did a DDE_EXECUTE($TOPIC,$APP,[INSERT.PICTURE('C:\LOGO.BMP',1)]

Excel gives me an error when I execute the macro.

Am I missing something?
