new application not showing changes made to table

new application not showing changes made to table

new application not showing changes made to table

(OP)
I created a small application in Foxpro 2.6 which only runs a few reports.  Those reports though, are not showing any changes/updates to the table - made either directly on the table or through another foxpro application. Only after rebuilding the executable will the changes to the table show up in the reports.  Any ideas will be helpful.
Thanks

RE: new application not showing changes made to table

Is your table included in the project or is it excluded?

The table is included in the project.  The report actually uses 5 different tables, all of which are part of the project file.

RE: new application not showing changes made to table

That's why the changes are not getting made.  Since the file(s) are included in the project, they become part of the executable.  The changes you make to a file are made in memory only, and not to the physical file.  You can have the file in the project, but it needs to be marked as "Excluded" so it will be free from the executable when it is installed.  You will also have to include that table and any others you want to have updated as separately distributed files.
