You will have to export each object to a file. Then you can edit the file
to change to ancestor and import it again. I suggest you create separate
PBL's before you import because you don't want to overwri...Implementing Application help file with PFC
I'm wondering if anyone could provide some decent examples
of implementing help with PFC. We have our help file in

entirely clear on the implementation of this in our PB app.
I see the of_sethelp etc. Showhelp and the rest of it -
however, I was wondering if the file was indexed per window
- do you have to set the ia_helptype each time - I think I'm
way off base - any help/suggestions or reference material is

Open the file in read-only mode.
If the file cannot be opened in read-only mode, it can not be copied.
Open the destination file.
Read the source file.
Write the destination file.
Repeat until done.
Close both files.
...URGENT HELP REQUIRED!!! Converting NON PFC Application to PFC
We have some applications which were developed in PB 4 and has been upgraded
to PB5 and migrated to PB6.
We have custom made ancestor objects for windows as well as user objects for
dws. we have upto 4 layers of objects.
We wish to convert our application to take advantage of PFC.
Can any one out there guide whether this would require re-writing the
entire system ?
We have lot of NVUOs which work as PFC services but with having different
purpose. Our applications are very large and rewriting would amount to
atleast 35 man months of work.

When I use Help|Contents on my computer, I get the PFC help included in the
regular PB Help. On another developer's computer, the PFC help does not
show up. How can I get the PFC Help to merge with the PB help (other than
thru installing the PFC from disk)?
put the pfc.hlp file in the same directory as the other help files and then
edit the pb.ini file to remove all help files and then start PB, go to the
help menu, contents, and you should be prompted to specify the location of
the help files.
