  • 1. Importing DBF/FPT/CDX (Comix 3.0) into MDB (Access 2002) [?]
    Hi, What is the best (and hopefully, easiest) way to import DBF/FPT/CDX files (created with Clipper 5.2e + Comix 3.0) into Access 2002 database? I just need to get the files in without data loss and establish the relationships. No data sharing between Clipper and Access is required. Access 2002 has dBase III, IV, and 5 import options. Please advise. TIA, Eugene
  • 2. Any easy fixes for improving appearance of Clipper app?
    Clipper 5.3. Application screens are basically white text on a blue background, generally with double-line boxes separating functional areas of the screen. Are there any "tricks" or simple mods that can improve the appearance of this sort of Clipper application? And in the same vein, I like the look of the "alert" dialog box. Is this achieved using graphics?

    I wanted to reinstall my licensed version on my new computer but all I have is the original install disk and no product code. Anybody know how I can get past this huge roadblock? Thanks in advance.

  • 5. application closes
    Hi I have the following configuration in a client's offices: - Netware server - Win 2003 server configured as TS - about 20 RD clients - clipper 5.2e & blinker 7 applications (protected mode) Sometimes the application closes without showing any message, neither a trapped error nor an internal error. Just nothing. Other times when loading the application it closes before showing anything in the screen. Repeats 3 or 4 times and fnally loads. Any idea ? All I know and everithing I could imagine was verified and is ok. Thanks Claudio H

I use Clipper 5.2e + Blinker 5.1

Which command is correct ?

Blinker Executable Clipper F128
Blinker Executable Clipper F:128
Blinker Executable Clipper //F:128

My config.sys setting files open 40 and I use command blinker to open
files 128.
Why my application still error dos 4 ?
Which setting read first, config.sys or blinker ?

So... you tell your system that (MS-DOS) programs can be allowed to have
40 files opened simultaneously; you tell Blinker to create your program
so that it opens up to 128 files simultaneously; and you wonder that
your application runs out of file handles? Gosh, I wonder _what_ could
be the problem...

Both. They have different purposes. The files= setting in config.sys
tells your system how many files can be opened, max. The Blinker setting
tells your _program_ how many files it may try to open. If the latter
exceeds the former, the result is often, as you've seen, a somewhat
predictable failure.

   I use same Clipper and same Bliinker as you.

   The linker command I use is:


   However, my config.sys file on my Win98SE machine has: 

   You must have your config.sys file declare at least five more files than
your bliinker link script requires.
