Error Accessing External Object Property

Error Accessing External Object Property

Error Accessing External Object Property

(OP)
I'm getting the following error:

Application terminated.
Error: Error accessing external object property text at line 136 in clicked event of object ........

The above error occurs on the following line of code:
tabpage_1.dw_1.object.header_t.Text = ls_string

I double checked that my datawindow has the 'header_t' field. I'm running PB6.5 against a MSSQL Server 7 DB.

Does any know what the problem is?

RE: Error Accessing External Object Property

try this

tabpage_1.dw_1.Modify("header_t.Text='"+ls_string+"'")

instead of tabpage_1.dw_1.object.header_t.Text = ls_string

RE: Error Accessing External Object Property

(OP)
I've tried this but I get:

Line 1 column 23: incorrect syntax

I know I have this exactly as you stated. Also, my original syntax works fine in sqlanywhere, but not in MSSQL Server. Why would this be?

RE: Error Accessing External Object Property

i tried this and it works for me :(
can you make sure that u have a static text called header_t in ur datawindow?
