...PB8 Datawindow Painter error on valid SQL syntax
I have had trouble ever since upgrading to PB8 with pre-existing
datawindows utilizing a SQL syntax similar to:
(SELECT FNAME AS FNAME,
LNAME AS LNAME
FROM SH.USER) AS RECORDSET
Any datawindow utilizing this subquery style syntax cannot be edited
without generating a PB error and erasing the syntax changes. This same
syntax works fine in prior versions of PB, works fine from database
painter, and works fine when initially creating a datawindow. The error
I get is:

When in the SQL Painter I receive a Database error when exiting and any
changes to the SQL are lost. I just installed the EBF Build 8046. Within
the documentation for this EBF it speaks to not being able to use '*=' any
longer. We do not use that syntax but rather 'LEFT OUTER JOIN'. I copied
the syntax that was in the EBF notes but this also gave the same error.
Looking for someone who has had this problem and has a work around. There
are things within the 8046 build that we require, but if this can not be
fixed I guess I will have to go back to 8011.

The client has some datawindows that are *painfully* slow when opening the
SQL painter for the datawindow.
The one I'm waiting on right now is in grid style. The SQL is in
non-graphic mode and has a select with 14 tables with appropriate joins and
a long list in the GROUP BY section. Preview mode is off. I've been
waiting for 5 minutes. I've had these take 8 - 10 minutes before. This
takes a mean bite out of productivity.
I cant seem to make the following query in SQL data source painter:

names of columns are same in both the tables. The above works when i issues

We have developed an application that allows user to create custom data

who are non IT

Powerbuilder but not sold
as a separate purchasable product. After discussions with Sybase
representatives we have each
user purchase a copy of Infomaker to make them 'legal'. We are not
totally happy with this
situation as we move forward to PB 8 also we are not sure if there is a

news:email@example.com...changing datawindow connection is breaking my datawindow SQL
I have had to move a number of datawindows from Oracle 9i running on a

and requires a VPN to connect to).
In the datawindow designer, I have also had to change the database interface
from O90 Oracle 9i to an ODBC datasource (because I was not able to
connect). In doing so, I have had to graphically re-create all the DW SQL

I want to create a datawindow whose only data is three columns that will

That depends on how you want to populate and use the columns of the main DW.

column in the main DW. If you want to retrieve the values ...datawindow
Add direct setting and getting capability for the datawindow where clause.
This would have to be a string array in case of unions.
Return ONLY the where clause(s) in the main select (in case of sub-selects,
ignore the where clause or somehow list it as a subselect in the where or a
subselect in the select).
It would be great if I could just get and set this as a value and have the
datawindow automatically change (or add) the where clause as specified.
This is for setting the where clause dynamically at run time. Currently

I have problem with data window. When I create new DW and save this, it

Problem: if I have to open this DW and click on SQL the system goes into a
