Setting autoyield to .F. causes problems in working code.

Setting autoyield to .F. causes problems in working code.

I am using a third party Active X Control from DBI Technology called Solutions Schedule 3.0. I first wrote code to query a database and then fill in fields in the control. This code worked fine until I set autoyield equal to .F. Now the code fails with the following error...

Alias 'COLS' is not found. Line #43

Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

This is the section of code that is failing...

SELECT Collections.col_date, Collections.employeeno;
FROM park!Collections;
WHERE ALLTRIM(Collections.route) = ALLTRIM(Sched.route);
ORDER BY Collections.col_date;
Into Cursor Cols

If Reccount("Cols") > 0

Go top

Do While !EOF()

nBarID = Thisform.ctSchedule1.AddKeyTimeBar(nIndexID, ;
0, ; 1440, ;
Thisform.numdate(Cols.col_date), ;
Thisform.numdate(Cols.col_date), 0)

*** "Alias 'COLS' is not found."
*** WHEN autoyield is set to .F.

cHHNum = SUBSTR(TRIM(Cols.employeeno), LENC(TRIM(Cols.employeeno))-2,3)
thisform.ctSchedule1.BarText(nIndexID, nBarID ) = cHHNum
thisform.ctSchedule1.BarTextAlign(nIndexID, nBarID ) = 2

nCount = thisform.ctSchedule1.AddBarStyle(20, 0)
thisform.ctSchedule1.StyleBackColor(nCount) = RGB(0,255,0)
thisform.ctSchedule1.BarStyle(nIndexID, nBarID ) = nCount


RE: Setting autoyield to .F. causes problems in working code.

The code looks correct. The only thing I can see is that your are using a FoxPro Reserved word COLS. Change the cursor database name and try it again.

RE: Setting autoyield to .F. causes problems in working code.

After setting autoyield to .F. the call to Thisform.ctSchedule1.AddKeyTimeBar
caused an event to be fired which was not being fired previously. Within that
event CLOSE TABLES and CLOSE DATABASE were executed. So after
returning from Thisform.ctSchedule1.AddKeyTimeBar with autoyield set to .F.
the CURSOR Cols was no longer available.
