Text File To .DOCX Or .DOC Converter

08 February 2019 - 09:42 PM

Hi everyone,

 

We give our users the ability to output a report to MS Word. We do this rather simply by naming the text file with a .doc extension and send it to Word. We have a macro that then formats the text based on a format code at the beginning of the file. When the user saves the report it gets saved as a true .DOC file. This has worked well for us over the years but is no longer ideal.

 

Does anyone use or know of a product we can purchase that will convert a .TXT file to .DOCX or .DOC? We need to be able to do this within ProIV via a SYSTEM call. E.g. a exe where we pass it file and formatting parameters.

 

Thanks in advance!

Client Side File Folder Browser

29 August 2018 - 01:37 PM

Hi there,

 

We need a solution whereby a user launches a window from ProIV (ProIV Client, not Open Client) that allows the user to browse folders on the Client side. We only want the user to be able to drill into folders they have permission for. We want them to be able to select a file and have that file copied to a folder on the ProIV server side. We are running the latest version of ProIV in a Windows environment.

 

If anyone can shed some light on available solutions I would greatly appreciate it.

Change Management Solutions

18 June 2018 - 10:11 PM

Hi there,

 

We are running on the latest release of ProIV (8.3.16.17). Last week we had a demo from Andrew Turner (ProIV UK) on the change management system and a third party product he uses called GitHub. GitHub is used in conjunction with JASON ProIV function exports (XML) to manage and document changes to a function. We are looking at starting to use GitHub but first want to see what other users may be using. Can anyone who is using a change management solution like GitHub please let me know what they are using and why they like using it. Thank you in advance.

Google Chrome & OpenClient Connection problem

19 May 2015 - 10:54 PM

Hi everyone,

 

We are deploying ProIV (V8) functions on Windows 7 tablets using OpenClient on Google Chrome. The tablets are connecting wirelessly. During the day some of our users are experiencing the "white screen of death". I.e. they will go to the tablet and touch say a field on the function and Chrome will go white. Sometimes they can refresh Chrome and get the session back but many times the refresh does nothing. To prove that it wasn't a disconnection we tried running Chrome via a Citrix connection to our server farm and today a user still got the "white screen of death". If the connection was down they would have got a Citrix error instead.

 

Are there any other users out there who are running OpenClient under the latest Chrome who are experiencing similar white screen issues?

Change Column Heading Of Listbox Fields

09 May 2015 - 07:49 PM

Hi there,

 

I'm trying to change the column heading of some listbox fields but nothing happens. ProIV help topic 510043 indicates I can but where it says I can use it doesn't make sense. I have a flat screen with a listbox field that links to a selection cycle. Does anyone know how to do this and where to place the logic?

 

Regards

Topic - 510043

It is important to note that the listbox.Columnheader is only valid in a paging cycle and is invalid in a flat screen, resulting in the following error message:

'ColumnHeader is an invalid Method or Property for Listbox Listboxname in the context of it's parent object type'
