Pdox 11-XP Pro Runtime Error 216 w/simple report calc, please try this

Pdox 11-XP Pro Runtime Error 216 w/simple report calc, please try this

Pdox 11-XP Pro Runtime Error 216 w/simple report calc, please try this

(OP)
I am getting these errors every time I edit a calculated field when combining addition and multiplication. Can someone try the following to see if it is just me.

Runtime Error 216 at 00002E28
Runtime Error 216 at 00071F74
----------------------------------------------------
1. Create table “Test” with fields:
            Field1             A  10
            Num1               N
            Num2               N
            Num3               N
            Result             N
2. Create Report – New / Data Model - Select "Test.db"

3. Create a new undefined Result field Right-Click and select “Define Field”

4. Check “Calculated” and edit the entry box selecting fields to produce:
 ([test.num1]+[test.num2])*[test.num3]

5. Click OK (If report run now it will work, but...)

6. Go back to the same field and goto Define Field dialog box to edit the calculation. Click OK (whether you actually edit the calc or not)

7. Run the Report.  What do you see?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Additionally, reports that include these types of calculations originally designed on a previous version will run fine until I try to edit the calculated field. By pressing the OK button, I will generate this error even without actually changing the calculated field.

OCCguy,

Nothing else happens, the calculation is correct however I change the formula.

Strange!

Thanks for trying Lewy.

Are you using Paradox 11 with Windows XP Pro?

No,  I am using version 10 with Windows XP home edition.

Regards,

Paul

Version 10 works fine. It is Version 11 that is a problem.

Thanks again for trying, Paul.

Anybody out there with Paradox version 11 and Windows XP Pro SP2 willing to try this?

Its a known issue. I also had the same problem in Paradox 11 (not Runtime) and also in a form.

If you change a calculated field, the problem occurs. There was no problem in P8 with this behaviour.

see Bertils Buglist:

Thank you, Ton. At least I know that I am not alone. It is such a shame to have these significant issues with an otherwise great program. Apparently, Corel has no intention of correcting or developing this product.
