    Re: In Memory: Tony Mackay

    Has anyone played with a VDF app working with an MQTT broker? If so, how did it work for you?

    Of course.... Sets occasionally sell there but pretty rare.
  7. Re: will have to find a new development environment

    Judy, we occasionally had weird problems like that at McFarland. Our debugging technique, crude as it was, was to start adding write lines to the app logging to a sequential file. Rewrite over the...
  8. Re: Why is it recommended to use 1753-01-01 as a dummy blank date instead of Null Date?

    Given the recommendation to use 1753-01-01, be aware that you will need to convert this to null in any SQL views, queries, or report writer reports to keep your end users from asking why 1753-01-01. ...

    Re: Smaller / Compress Compiled EXE

    As our applications at McFarland got larger, we too noticed the load time becoming much slower. While we didn't give it a lot of analysis, it was my impression that it was the number of data tables...

    Re: Data Quality Tools -- need recommendations

    Bob, Baycastle's tool was great and has a great, easy to use interface. I purchased a couple of copies and used it extensively some time ago. However, since getting involved with the MS SQL tool...

    Re: DFCOMP under Windows 7 x64.

    I think I figured out how I did it last week.... I must have been attached to one of the many Terminal Services connections I normally have open. Duh!

    DFCOMP under Windows 7 x64.

  15. Re: How do I add an Overlap field to an ODBC table?

    Ouch. Sounds like you are having ALL the fun. Are you reading AND writing? You might consider augmenting the DD to work with properties representing the Over/Under lap that are updated with new...
  16. Re: How do I add an Overlap field to an ODBC table?

    Chuck,

    You might want to look at a 'computed' column definition on the SQL side to handle 'underlaps'. I'm not quite sure how the driver will deal with it as it's considered a 'read only' column...

    .... or a LOT more orderly and maintainable... (No argument on my part either.)
  19. Re: Proposal to change from ordinal table.column referencing in VDF.

    Inserting a new column or dropping an existing, unused column are tasks that a DBA would often do. There are many times I would like to re-structure tables but I don't because I don't want to...
  20. Proposal to change from ordinal table.column referencing in VDF.

    One of my all time least favorite things about Dataflex, (ok, probably the ONLY thing), has been the ordinal linking of the compiled application and columns within a table. Every time we re-order...
