Leaving ProIV...

02 June 2006 - 11:16 AM

As you may have guessed from James Sanderson's post regarding the team leader position, I have handed in my notice to Northgate.

I am leaving the ProIV world to pursue a career elsewhere...

Printing pound (£) sign

08 December 1999 - 02:46 PM

We have a client that wishes to enter pound signs into a text field which will then be printed. The pound sign is appearing OK on the screen but when printed is appearing as È {E grave} (on our printer it appears as ú {u acute}).

Investigation shows that the printer uses ASCII 156 as a pound sign but PRO IV is using ASCII 163 (HTML also uses 163 for pound £ , codes 127-159 being unused). Looking at CHARMAP in windows most fonts have the pound sign as 163, however the MS linedraw and Terminal fonts use 156. Cutting and pasting a œ {oe dipthong} from the Terminal font in CHARMAP into the field shows a vertcal bar in GUI but prints a pound sign. Is there a way to get the pound sign to show on the screen (both in GUI and green screen) and print correctly?

Oracle record locking

02 September 1999 - 11:22 AM

I am getting a record lock in an update function which updates loads of files. In order to try to determine which file is being locked I thought I would add lock logics to all the files to write a record with the file name to an error logging file. However the function just sits there staring at me, not going into the lock logic.

Any ideas as to either how to get the lock logic working or how to track down the file being locked?
