Hi :
An irritating little feature of foxpro. I have two copies; one at work and one at home.
At Home when I create a query, then select a  query destination using the browse button, then view the SQL the table location is shown as relative; eg if I want to store  table stock.dbf  in C:\Stock then the SQL reads  "..\..\stock.dbf". Which, when I compile, does cause problems .
At work no problem - the SQL reads "C:\Stock\stock.dbf"
Anybody else experienced this?

This should depend on the current path set by SET DEFAULT. Your work path is porbably D:\MyWorkFolder\ wherease home default path is e.g. C:\Stock\Home\MyHomeFolder\.

Ahhh..Thank you, pcelba!
Please advise where SET DEFAULT is set...cannot see in config.fpw, and cannot find in tools/options

Tools - Options - File Locations - Default Directory

But I would recommend to add it into CONFIG.FPW and/or into a startup program.
