Re: How to deal with database files for an app?

Hi, Would you use Windows Scheduler to automate it, or is it something you write a script for? I'm trying to use as much "standard procedures" of the OS as possible. They usually cause the least problems, on Win anyways :) Yes, for running automated tasks I use the scheduler ("taskschd.msc"). It wor...

Re: How to deal with database files for an app?

Hi, never really tried Cobian - but on Windows "robocopy" is an extremely powerful cmd line tool for such tasks. For those who love cmd line tools with gazillions of parameters. Try "robocopy -?" and shudder ;-) I used it for some tasks where basic copy/ xcopy didn't work well (loooong filepaths, ov...

Re: Permanent ID function (same as FileMaker Pro)

Hi, Again, how often do you suspect average people are changing out hardware in their systems? Depends of the definition of "average people" ;-) Lemme give you some use cases where the hardware changes: It's common even for small companies to lease their computers. These are exchanged then every 2 o...

Re: How to deal with database files for an app?

Hi. Of course, I could let the user choose whether they want a single datafile or separate files for separate years. Michael: Hey User, regarding your backups: would you prefer a single datafile or separate files for separate years? User 1: Huh? You mean bagels? Got some? Gimmi! User 2: Don't you se...

Re: Permanent ID function (same as FileMaker Pro)

Hi, about the Filemaker function. From here : If web browser cookies are cleared during a FileMaker WebDirect session, the value returned by Get(PersistentID) changes. If a FileMaker Go user restores an iOS backup to a different device, the value returned by Get(PersistentID) changes. If a backup is...

Re: text copied from LC generated PDF, WTF?

Hi Klaus, I guess you misunderstood me, or I wrote something misunderstandable. Sorry. My intention was not to explain something to you, but to help to find the culprit. Something is wrong here, but what? I wrote table fields to PDF via my Win PDF printer driver using LC 6 & 9.5 (And tried 2 other w...

Re: LC and Libreoffice Base

Hi, [...] my question should have been can LC connect to a HSQLDB embedded data base. [...] my Linux version of Linux Mint Ooops, I missed this. A search for "HSQLDB ODBC" gave me this . HSQLDB seems to be PostgreSQL related, have you tried to connect via 'revOpenDatabase("postgresql", ...'? Have fun!

Re: LC and Libreoffice Base

Hi,

there's a FireBird ODBC driver (for Win, at least). This may work.

Have fun!

Re: text copied from LC generated PDF, WTF?

Klaus, did you try another PDF viewer? That's the one that loads the clipboard ... I tried my LC table field ("printed to PDF" with basic Win printer driver) again, and with whatever I displayed the PDF with (Calibre, Sumatra, Edge, Waterfox, FireFox ...), I never got these scrambled result like you...

Re: text copied form LC generated PDF, WTF?

Hmmm. Either your MacOS PDF printing, or your PDF viewer, or your text editor is broken. I assume you're using a newer version of LC, this creates a 4th candidate then. I tried with a "Planmaker" (Softmaker Office 2018 pro) spreadsheet, and printed with "MS Print to PDF", then "exported as PDF". Aft...

Re: Free simple tool for creating keystore file

Hi Simon, I read it. Nevertheless I decided to finish mine, and there's a reason: We're in quite sensitive area here - we're generating certificates that should provide security to the users of our software. Using a closed source tool (that, above all, contains a tsNet lib ...) doesn't look, IMHO, l...

Re: Free simple tool for creating keystore file

Hi, I never got it to work. Unfortunately it's a SA so I cannot debug it, additionally. Though I remembered that once I had collected all the information about keys, and even started a stack for myself. So I searched, found and finalized my own Keystore generator - it's, after all, nothing more than...

What's the difference between numbers & strings when thrown at a DB as data? Right, strings must ...
