I am using PB7 Build 8033 and Excel 97 SR1
I have a spreadsheet which has 1 chart "graph", and 2 sheets "Model" and

I can get excel and the spreadsheet to open in automation mode, I can

Look for the one entitled "Identity Column". It started on 4/7/2003 with a
question about implementing IDENTITY/AUTOINCREMENT columns in PB
datawindows, but has morphed into a debate of Oracle v. ASA. Anybody that
wants to pile on, please feel free to contribute!

...Modify Expression Editor
How about improving on the Modify Expression Editor a bit? We have some
quite complicated expressions, and the tiny little MLE control that PB uses
to allow us to edit expression is very clumsy (and yes, I do realize about
the elipse to bring up the modal Modify Expression window - which contains
an only slight less tiny MLE for editing the Expression).
Not to mention that embedded Returns in the expression can cause the
computed field to behave funny.
How about a real editor, complete with color markups, support for
indentation and carrage returns, AutoScript even!
Oooh,...Powerbuilder <---> General CORBA/IIOP Environment
We're trying to connect Powerbuilder 7 to a CORBA environment other than
Jaguar. In particular, we need to talk to components we've created in
BEA's WebLogic Enterprise CORBA environment.
Has anyone else accomplished this with BEA or any of the other ORB
We've tried to RTFM but it seems to be primarily interested in Jaguar
and some type of connection called "winsock" without mentioning any
other ORB products.

We use PB6.5.
We would want to use a DLL create from PB in a PB application.
We compiled an a PBL as DLL.
After we tried to use DLL in a user object external, but without success.
How can we do to use DLL create from PB or use in a new PB application some
object (visual and no) before compiled with PB?
Any help will be appreciated.
When you create a DLL from a PB library it is not really a standard Windows
DLL. I'm not sure what the difference is. If you are making calls from PB
then just use the standard PB calling syntax the ...general
In sybase for the column what datatype the sybase expert's suggest
either char or varchar?
I heared that while doing update statistics ... the varchar is costlier
than the space occupied by char.
Please share your knowledge.
Thanks and Best Regards

The choice between "varchar" and "char" doesn't have much of anything to
do with the performance of "update statistics" that I know of. There is
a small performance penalty for accessing variable length data on the
row, but it would only be notable under very high load.
