PB 8 to PB 9
We have both PB 8 and PB 9.
Our program is written by PB 8, is it possible to convert it to PB 9. If
yes, are there anythings which exists in PB 8 but is obsoleted in PB 9?
Also, I would like to perform Spell checking function in PB 8, are there any
function I can use?
Open a copy of it in PB9 and it will migrate it for you. There's
nothing important I can remember that got depreceated in PB9.
There is no build in spell check in PB8 or PB9. However there are
third party controls, and you can always use OLE to talk to Word and
let it do the spell ch...PB crashes while migrating pb application from PB 8.0 to 9.0
I am trying migrate a pb application from PB 8.0 to 9.0.
It crashes while rebuilding for migration. Is there anything
needs to be taken care before the migrating it to pb 9.0 ?
Same as any other version:
- optimize all PBLs
- run Migration Assistant in destination version; try to deal with as
much as possible in original version
- full build, with information and warning messages turned on, so you
know which messages after migration aren't new
- backup, backup, backup
- if it crashes, try again and watch messages to see if you ca...How to Handel PB Native Source Control When Migrating from PB 8 to PB 9
Is there a special process for migrating and preserving PB
Native Source Control History? We are migrating from PB 8
under PB Native Source Control to PB 9. Our plan is to
setup a seperate PB 9 machine. Then, checkout all our PB 8
objects on the source machine and copy them over to the PB 9
machine for migration. Once we get a clean build on the PB
9 machine, we would check all the objects back in. Is this
the correct way to do it?
There should be no need to check the objects out before the migration.

We have a bunch of updates to PB. Is there a way we can install PB 10
without needing to install all the previous versions of PB?
If all you have is an update version, then you'll need to have some
previous version of PB installed.

I have the PBLs for a PB 8 application. But I only have PB 9 on my system.
How can I convert it?
Backup the pbls.
Create a target, add the remaining pbls. PB should handle everything.

I have the PB 8 and PB 9 runtime files in the same
directory. Now when starting the PB 9 application get the
"target.exe - ordinal not found, the ordinal 33 could not be
located in the dynamic link library libjsybheap.dll=94
How can this be corrected?
AFAIK - Use the DLL from v9. You might also want to consider upgrading to a
later v8 release as I believe that the later versions contain the same DLL
Alternatively, you might want to create an apppath for your each version of
your app and store the distribution DLLs by version - th...Turn back from PB 9 to PB 8
I migrate my Programm from PB 8 to PB 9. But now I want turn back to PB 8.
Is it possible to migrate from PB 9 back to PB 8 and what�s the way to do
Not easily. You can export your objects and try importing them into PB
8 .pbls. Did you keep a backup of your application code?
Is there a problem with PB 9 that is preventing you from going

I am getting an error when I close down an application that
I just migrated from PB 8 to PB 9. Details from the
Microsoft error report state that the module is pbdwe90.dll,
the version is 184.108.40.20607 and the offset is 00002ca2. This
app worked fine in PB 8.
Multiple instances of user objects are being destroyed in
the close process of the application. Based on some
information that I read on the Sybase site, I thought that
there might be a chance that upgrading to 9.0.2 might solve
the problem since it looked like others had experienced
similar problems with 9.0 when memory was b...Can PB 8 and PB 9 both be installed on the same box?

We have an old PB 6.5 app that we want to (finally) migrate to PB 9.
Should we go to PB 9.00 or PB 9.01 (which seems to generate a fair
number of GPFs from some of the posts we've seen).'
Which of the 2 versions of PB 9 are more stable in your opinion?
We don't need the new features that much, for us stability is the #1
Frankly speaking, we'd keep it on 6.5 if we could, but that old IDE
is so unusable by today's standards that we finally decided to
make the jump to version 9.
thanks in advance,
Stability really depends on your...Setting Date Format in Excel
Tested in PB 9.02, B 7509.
Following works fine:
Pull up the spreadsheet in Excel and the dates appear in the correct

However, the final app is in PB 8.03, B 9977.
Using the same script, the dates appear in Excel as 2/25/2005.
The weird thing is , even in Excel, it is not possible to change the format!
