  • 1. BDE Century Date problem
    I have a client that is running a program written in D5 and using BDE 5.01 running on XP home. We do not have access to the source code. There are only 2 digits available for the birth year. When they enter 41 for 1941 the system stores it as 2041. I looked at the BDE Init settings and tried all combinations of FOURDIGITYEAR and YEARBIASED. I keep seeing references to changing a Windows date format. Is there a fix for this problem since we do not have the source code? Where is the Windows date format setting they are talking about?
  • 2. Converting images from bmp to jpeg in large table
    I have an image table which stores photos in BMP. I want to write a program that will read the image and convert to JPEG and then store the image back into the table and MOVE to the next record until EOF. My problem is i don't know how to write the code to perform this task. Can someone give me an example? Thanks.
  • 3. DataBase Recomendation
    I have a application that I porting from VS to Delphi. This application needs to access a database, this database will have no more than than 20,000 records. Right now the complete database is stored in an XML file and is loaded into memory (a table) in Visual Studio 2003. So what would be a good "lightweight" database to use. I would like to stay with XML if possible, but otherwise I would like a database engine that is easy to install and requires minimal files. I was thinking about something like SQLite, but I did not know how well it works with Delphi. The application only needs to run on Windows 2000 and Windows XP so something native would be good too. I will be using VCL. Thanks,
  • 4. Required table fields
    I have a desktop database other than DBE, but behave similar. In the table, there are 2 mandatory fields : Firstname and Lastname. A strange behaviour happened to my application, in some time ago, I can append a new record by calling tblCustomer.Append; However, I don't know what I did to the application or table recently, now I got an exception when I call tblCustomer.Append, the error message is "Field 'Firstname' must have a value". It is weired, I have no idea why it happens now but not before.

I had no idea it was a common problem, but I'm certainly glad to hear that
it is.

May I bother you to instruct me as to how one goes about searching the
newsgroup archives?

This is a known problem, and has been discussed much in threads in this
forum, in borland.public.bde, and in other forums.  Search the newsgroup
archives for "insufficient disk space" or "4G limit" and you'll find
plenty.  There are also suggested work-arounds, and I think one is
a download available from Code Central.

Thank you Bill and Rick.

I found this on "Rick's dBase page" (www.goldenstag.net/dbase/#Source)...
has anyone used this fix and care to comment?

BDE "Insufficient disk space" Error Fix
The BDE in all releases earlier than 5.2.0.2 (the version that ships with
dBASE Plus 2.5 and later) and later releases one assumes, has an error that
can occur if you or your users have free disk space on the hard drive that
is an exact increment of 4 gigabytes (i.e., 4, 8, 12, 16 ...). The file
BDE4GigFix.zip includes the .DLL file that solves this issue (it's a "patch"
for the BDE), and also a small program that will load it. Details are in the
file "BDEFix.prg" contained in the .zip file. Note that if you have dBASE
Plus 2.5 or later, this should not be an issue, and you do not need this
file.

I ran into the problem on occasion and just copied some file to the drive to
change the size of the free disk space.  It happened so infrequently, that
the biggest issue I had was to remember what to do when it happened..
