was playing around this morning and noticed i cant run any app that uses dbdemos.so i open delphi and sure enough dbdemos alias has dissapeared,checked odbc, bde settings and find no dbdemos alias anywhere,i know i havnt deleted it so where could it be?
i tried re-creating it but now when i use my new dbdemos alias it bombs and have to give delphi the 3 finger salute ;-)
so the question is can someone give exact instructions on how to make a new dbdemos alias.i dunno why my new one kept failing..it fails when i get to selecting a table.
as a side note, why when i create an alias why does it make 2 alias's ?
i mean i make an alias to a db then when opening delphi and going to select the alias there is myalias and myalias1 to choose from.
why the "myalias1" ,shouldnt it just be "myalias" .
