Browse Header Problem

 I am working in Fox2.6 for DOS on Win 98. I run my application via a PIF in window mode. When a browse window appears, the headings of the columns have a 'a' added to them. e.g. 'Date' becomes 'Datea'.
 Any suggestions.

RE: Browse Header Problem

Check for duplicate fields in your select statement. Whenever  you use a field name more than once, the select command  shall append '_a' to the first field, '_b' to the second field, etc. Like for example:

select master.itemcode, trans.itemcode, ;
     trans.date, trans.amount ;
  from master, trans ;
  order by itemcode

the resulting query would generate the following field names: itemcode_a, itemcode_b, date, amount

RE: Browse Header Problem

In your browse field name is duplicating. When you browse e.g from two tables and if one or more field/s are duplicating then it browse fild1_a(from one table) and field_b(from 2nd table).

Therefore check your browse sytax.


RE: Browse Header Problem

You are right. But this is not the case. Try this. In the command window ( Foxpro-DOS,full screen mode) open a database and give the browse command. Now, press Alt+Space, select properties and change to Window mode. Immediately you'll see a attached to the end of the browse heading.
