Converting a proven VFP 6 program to VFP 9.2: A Browse command is executed with two unrelated windows defined and activated. The Browse uses "Window xx", not "In Window xx". The first time the Browse is executed,  the two unrelated windows are cleared. On all subsequent execution of the same Browse under exactly the same conditions, the unrelated windows are not cleared. Of course, they should not have been cleared the first time. There are to "CLEAR" commands in any of the associated code. Numerous tries of minor changes do not solve the problem. If the Browse is skipped, the windows are not cleared. A simpler version of the Browse has been tried to no avail.

The Browse uses "Window xx", not "In Window xx"


My first question would be why are you using  "Defined Windows for your Browse".  
That is OLD non-VFP code methodology.  
You should be using Grids within a VFP9 Form.

A Grid has a RecordSourceType & RecordSource which are defined.

What is displayed in the Grids is a result of what records are 'visible' within the RecordSource.
If the Grid were to appear as 'cleared' then something has occurred which has made the records in the RecordSource not visible such as a SET FILTER TO <something> or SET INDEX TO <some tag>, etc.

The VFP CLEAR command only clears the desktop or active window 'screen', not the records being displayed in a BROWSE Window or Grid.

Good Luck

The program was written before VFP existed and works well under VFP 6.0. In any case, I have solved the probelm
