RBASE 4.0 Help
edited September 2019 in Programming
Hello, I'm a newbie to the site. The company I work for has the old RBASE 4.0 DOS program for it's referral system... I'm trying to EDIT the Company information that is printed on the reports, and the Date in the heading field. Any ideas?? I've searched and searched on the web with no luck!! Thank you!
Oh my gosh, no one has any input for how to change report headers in RBase 4.0.... How about old Paradox 4.0, same results would work.
Sorry, I don't think there are any R:Base experts here. This is why manuals need to be archived, so at least basic information about a product is not lost.
Probably not close enough, but manuals for R:Base System V have been added here: https://winworldpc.com/product/rbase/system-v
if you can load the report template into the report writer module, which I beleive is a separate module at that era, you should be able to edit the fields and see how the report is contructed.
I'll see if I can find my old rbase 4000 book, this weekend...
also the internet archive has some print materials that may be helpful
found this there
it mentions the report writer
you may have to convert your database to 3.1 or system v, but they include utilities to do the data conversion.
unless you can find the rbase 4000 report writer software somewhere, you won't be able to edit it in rbase 4000...
its not difficult to edit the reports once you have the right software. the report writer and the forms we some of my favorite database software ever, easy to use and very very easy to layout and do calculations.
