PB9 executable vs running from powerbuilder
I am having a problem on the datawindow with fields that
have decimal points. When I start tiping in the field for
some reason the value is being entered behind the dot like
if I want to enter a value 1234.560000 it starts entering
from .123456 I have to click before the dot and then start
typing again in order to acheive desired value.
The weird part of my problem is that it happens only when I
run the executable. When I run the same code of PowerBuilder
this problem doesn't exist. I created several builds already
and its doing hte same thing. I am building the executable

Just a bit of a rant really, not trying to start any wars or anything (just
my personal opinions)
I use powerbuilder for work, have been since version 5
we develop a suite of about 5 applications client/sever apps
i have used java in my spare time for a similar sized application (just 1
app, not a suite of them)
i have started using Visual C# 2005 because according to all the stuff i
pb is going to dotnet and it would be a good idea to get the hang of things
in dotnet before pb11 comes around the corner
other langauges i have used alot are perl and php

As I sit here throwing ASA8 databases across a network so I can use
Powerbuilder8's 'pipeline' object at my desk to transfer data among
these several dbs, I'm taking time for a question...
>>>How come INPUT doesn't work?<<<
The table in question is 4 columns, integer, char(6), char(8) and
timestamp. And it's that pesky timestamp that seems to stump Interactive
SQL, but is easy for the PB pipeline.
I create the rows with either PB's 'SaveRowsAs..' or with ISQL's OUTPUT.
And the data exports correctly.
But when I go to...Powerbuilder 9.0 vs. Powerbuilder 8.0
What is the difference in Powerbilder 9.0 and 8.0?
I would like to point out that the Appeon newsgroup is monitored by Sybase
and Appeon engineering staff who are very knowledgeable about Appeon issues.
Question that are purely PowerBuilder-related are best answered by the staff
and users of the PowerBuilder newsgroup: sybase.public.powerbuilder.XXXX.
Please post to the appropriate newsgroup so you receive the help you desire.

I am pretty new to perl so I assume you guys and girls will starting getting
to know me really well.
I have a one line snippet of code that I am trying to run. The system is
win2k sp3. I am trying to run the expand command and pass to it some
arguments that contain system variables.
#Ok we have renamed the files now we need to run the expand command:
system("expand perfc009.DA_ %windir%\\system32\\perfc009.DAT") && die "no
and when I run I get it:

We're currently migrating an application from PB 6.5.1 ,with ODBC to MSSQL
7, to PB 9.0.1
My question being should I stick with ODBC or should I go with OLE DB or
should I go with Native Drivers for MSSQL Server?
Anybody have the pro's and con's?
Basically we are looking for is any boost in performance. As well as which
has less problems (g)..
MSS support only MS SQL 6.5 functionality, no future
OLE_DB works well in PB 9.1, faster than ODBC, about same as MSS

We have migrated our application in PowerBuilder 9 to
PowerBuilder 11. PB 9 worked well with SNC Native Client
driver. Thinking to use ADO.NET or OLEDB instead. If we get
any sort replies related to comparision, features and
connectivity that could be immense useful
PoweBuilder 9 didn't have the SNC native driver??? Did you mean the
MSS native driver in PB9?

I've diligently probed the newsgroups for clarity on whether to use 3.5
or 3.6.1, and I must admit I'm more confused now than ever before.
Could somebody please provide a compatibility matrix for the various
versions / patches of EAS? Why was 3.5 C5 even released, if the
'current' version of EAS is 3.6.1?
Our current environment:
Jaguar build 36017
PowerBuilder 7.0.2 build 8046
We want to use many of the enhancements / fixes that were listed in 3.5
C5 (datawindow memory usage, etc.), but PB7.03 maintenance is not
certified w/3.6.1, 7.03 C5 requires an EAServer...OLE DB vs. MSS MS SQL Server 6.x to MSS 7.0 DBMS
I'm looking for info on the pros and cons of using OLE DB to connect to a MSS
7.0 database compared to using the native database driver.
I've tried it both ways, and they both seem to work for client our client server
apps. It seems as though the native MSS 6.x driver is easier to configure. And
we appear to be able to read and write data OK. Are there any gotchas lurking
out there? Can anyone provide a reference?

I am using Power Builder 7.0 with SQL Server 2000

field. It is allowing me enter and save 450 characters but
when I retrieved the data it is truncating it to 255

there. Why it is truncating the data on retrieve? Please

Has anybody heard of Actuate. The company wants to sell us their products.
Since PB 7.0 we are not really sure if should stay with PB!
From what I see on their Web site, this is a reporting tool, not a
Client/Server, Distributed and Web development environment. Depending on
what your needs are, this may or may not be an option.
If you have been successful in the past with PowerBuilder, and it still
solves your IT/business problems, there is no reason to switch. If you
experienced issues with PB7, consider upgrading to 8.0. The investment will
be less that th...Delphi vs Powerbuilder
I used to be a Delphi fan until I came accross PB back in 1995. It took me
some time to be convinced, however, I need assistance to convince people who
are ignorant about PB that PB is a much better tool than Delphi.
It always sounds better coming from somebody else in another part of the
