Disappearning OLE . Weirdness.

I store resumes in Paradox records. Usually it works fine, but at times I can only pull up a blank page. Saving this as a word document saves only a blank page.

Any thoughts on what is happening here? Closing Paradox sometimes restores visibility and sometimes not.

When the resume opens as a blank page it also presents as a blank page in the record.

More curious than concerned, but it's nice to know what causes these things.

And where are all the Paradox people these days????

RE: Disappearning OLE . Weirdness.

By the way, with the OLE...

Are you storing documents within a Paradox table as OLE?

Most recommend using the original documents, and the shellexecute stuff.

RE: Disappearning OLE . Weirdness.

Thanks. The reason I store them in the file is that I transfer the database between several computers using a thumb drive. I don't transfer the resume folders.

Thanks. Interesting solution.
