Powerbuilder application "crashing" another powerbuilder application
This is a repost of the above subject since there has been some problem for
messages posted on the 19th - 22nd July 2002.
I have an application (App A)built using PB7.0.3 build 10077 and it
seems to work fine. However, recently, another application (App B)
built using PB 7.0.3 build 10047 as well was installed and it seems to
trigger Dr Watson on App A.
There is an embedded OCX on a "main" window on App A, which receives
triggers from external applications. The OCX will then call another
function sitting on another main window. That function w...Powerbuilder and Outlook Calendar

It works for creation, but I also want to update if modified

I have add a field in outlook in which I intend to store
The creation of the userfield works well (I can see it with
outlookspy) but when I want to store an info in it, nothing
happens. ( no info, but no errors mentionned)
If I update this outlook userfield it through OutlookSpy, It
works: I can store and later on retrieve through PB this

I installed powerbuilder on a new computer and now it
crashes when I open a data window and then try to access the
data source (SQL). It bombs out completely with no error

I have regenerated the data window, exported and imported
the data window etc but nothing seems to fix the problem.
The problem also occurs if I make a new data window.
I can access the database (oracle) in the database painter
Anyone any idea what is going on ?
> I installed p...data exchange between PowerBuilder applications
I am looking for a possibility to exchange data between two or more
PowerBuilder applications which are all under my control.
I tried to use the Send()/Post() functions. I pass the values in the
wordParm and longParm respectively. This works fine for numeric data only.
But I was not able to pass string data this way. Obviously the
String(longParm, "address") Syntax does not work over more than one
PowerBuilder application - which actually is no surprise.
Is there another way in PowerBuilder to do this (apart from using DDE)?
...Accessing data in Excel from Powerbuilder
I am importing data from an Excel workbook into a Powerbuilder (version 8.03
build 9704) datawindow via ODBC. The user is asked to enter the name of the
excel file in an application window, and I would like to pass this filename onto
the transaction object. But I'm not able to find out which property to use in
the transaction object. When the Connect-statement is issued, the user is
prompted for the filename, which I want to avoid. Does anyone know where to
enter this filename in the trans. object ?
Here is the code
ltr_excel = create transaction
ltr_excel.DBMS = "...Accessing Excel data from PowerBuilder
I am trying to access data in an Excel spreadsheet from
PowerBuilder. After reviewing the PB documentation and a
number of posts from these newsgroups, I figured that I can
do it in one of three ways:
1. Save As text from the Excel file, then use a method like
ImportFile to bring the data into PB;
2. Use OLE to access the Excel file;
3. Use ODBC to access the Excel file.
(1) doesn't meet my requirements (I need to be able to bring
in the data directly from Excel, without any intermediate
steps), so that left me with options (2) and (3) (OLE or

A few years ago I used a version of PowerDesigner (perhaps
AppModeller) to generate a functioning PowerBuilder
application directly from a physical data model. It was fine
for editing static data. I now have PowerDesigner 9.5.0 and
want to do it again for static data. I can't find how to do
it in this version of PowerBuilder.
The functionality of AppModeler was not carried forward to PD 7, 8 or
However, using the 9.5.2 release, you are able to generate and reverse

We're designing our new business intelligence application and try to get
much more information about IQ. Our current application is developed by
using PowerBuilder. Can we still use PB to access data from IQ? How is the
query performance? Thanks in advance!
Yes, you may continue to use Powerbuilder, depending on your version you may
have to upgrade the ODBC driver.
The query peformance at the server side will be like nothing you have ever

...Accessing Infomaker reports from powerbuilder applications
Hi.Can anyone who has worked with Infomaker reports , please tell me how to
create and access Infomaker reports from a powerbuilder application at
I have never tried this, but maybe you can add your infomaker libraries to
your PB app with SetLibraryList( librarylist )
You might want to try Database Genius. With it you can create and modify
Powersoft Reports just as you would in Powerbuilder and Infomaker. Download
it at our web site: http://www.svsoftware.net

Currently, we are experiencing problems with a component, in production, under
load. The logs identify one datastore as the "culprit"; however, the component
does not die in the same place. The component either dies in one of two methods
while accessing the datastore. The datastore creation and initialization (e.g.,
dataobject, transaction object, retrieve) are identical. The interesting part,
the data was just retrieved successfully (no errors logged checking the
datastore's instance variable is_dberror), so the data should exist.

My current PB6.5 application is running on an NT4 and Oracle 8i platform. I
would like to know if it is possible for a single PB application accessing
more than one database. I was thinking of building an interface within my
existing application to access a Lotus Note database while at the same time
logon to the Oracle database. Can this be done easily? Does anybody got a
PB application that looks at two databases?
PB Apps Developer
Sure. Just create and connect another transaction object.

I need to access Lotus Notes databases, but I don't know how to get RTF

Lotus Notes. If I want to get a RTF field by using PB Library for Lotus
Notes,I only get a string that has 255 chars.HOW can I do?
