Weird Behavior...

Hello friends:

I have developed a project using Sybase Power Builder 12.5. The application is using a mysql database and

running on Windows 8. The application works fine but I have found a weird behavior on certain windows. Let's

say, if you click on the "X" icon located at the top right, the window will be closed normally or if you try ALT

+ F4 as we know it will do the same.

This is what happen with certain windows... The final user wanted me to code the ESC key, so when the user hits

that its when the application window will close right away... I just added a simple command button and check on

the property "cancel" on that command and it will execute the script inside that button... for my own cdoulase I

just added the command "CLOSE(PARENT)" inside that script add thats all !! But this is what happens... I hit the

ESC and the application produces an exception and crashes. Any idea what would be the source or origin of this


Thank you in advance

I have two stored procedures in one report. My main stored procedure is procSSFTP_RPT_WorkAndRestDailyReport and 2nd stored procedure name is procSSFTP_RPT_GetCrewComments.

I want to display "Seafarer name" from my 1st stored procedure and "comments" from 2nd stored procedure.

I have multiple rows for the comments against the single seafarer name.

Instead of showing multiple rows of comments for single "seafarer name", I want to display one comment per "seafarer name".

Dear Experts,

I have the following VBA code which is structured like that the SAP login details are in MainStream(), which calls the XK02_ReconAccount_AQ1() sub to fill the SAP screens through SAP scripting:

Sub MainStream()

login = InputBox("Please provide SAP user")
pass = InputBox("Please enter password")
system = "AQ1"

Set SapGui = GetObject("SAPGUI")
Set Appl = SapGui.GetScriptingEngine
Set Connection = Appl.OpenConnection(system, True)
Set session = Connection.Children(0)

Dim LastRow As Long
Dim StatusBarText As String
Dim StatusBarMessageType As String
With ActiveSheet
    LastRow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
End With

' Modify here the credentials and SAP system

session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/txtRSYST-BNAME").Text = login
session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/pwdRSYST-BCODE").Text = pass
session.findById("wnd[0]").sendVKey 0

Call XK02_ReconAccount_AQ1

End Sub

Sub XK02_ReconAccount_AQ1()

session.findById("wnd[0]/tbar[0]/okcd").Text = "XK02"
session.findById("wnd[0]").sendVKey 0

ActRow = ActiveCell.Row

For i = 1 To LastRow

session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/chkRF02K-D0210").Selected = True
session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/ctxtRF02K-LIFNR").Text = ActiveCell.Offset(i, 0)
ActiveCell.Offset(i, 0).Interior.ColorIndex = 6
session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/ctxtRF02K-BUKRS").Text = ActiveCell.Offset(i, 1)
ActiveCell.Offset(i, 0).Interior.ColorIndex = 6
session.findById("wnd[0]").sendVKey 0

I have a client who recently migrated from Exchange 2010 to 2016. After decommissioning their old 2010 Exchange server, they are now unable to send mails from SAP as the receive connector is now not on the Exchange 2016 server and needs to be recreated.

I tried recreating it as it was using old screenshots of all the settings. And the SAP has been changed to point now to the 2016 servers IP by the client.

SAP is still unable to send any mails via the Exchange.

Can someone please assist? Is there anything that needs to be restarted from the SAP side after make such a change?
I have two Stored procedures in one crystal report. Both having same parameters.
But when One stored procedure data is NULL then other stored procedure data is not visible on report which has data in it.

If I do Browse Data for another stored procedure which has data then the data is clearly visible in Browse Data Dialogue box but not on  report.

For example, refer the attached report link :

Hi all,

We have a bit of a strange issue after an upgrade of SAP Crystal Reports for Visual Studio. All applications have build issues after the upgrade because all of the "CrystalDecisions" DLL's seem to have disappeared after the upgrade.

We were running Version and all was fine with the DLL's all being located and available for referencing. We upgraded to 13.0.21 and all of the DLL's no longer exist on the machine, and all applications using Crystal Reports now have build errors due to the fact that the CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.dll, CrystalDecisions.ReportSource.dll, CrystalDecisions.Shared.dll have all disappeared!!

I tested further by removing the new version and replacing the older version and all the issues went away and all was good again. I then reinstalled the new version and the issues come back. There is no error from the install, and it claims that all was successful. I have searched the entire machine and there are no CrystalDecisions DLL files anywhere, so it's not that they have moved them.

It is all very strange ...

Hi Team,

I need to write the above logic in sybase , any help is really appreciated.  I have tried the below code  , need an help on the exception handling section

I am accessing in Access, using the sybase ase 15.7 driver, a sybase table that has date/time fieds. However, when accessing that table over an ADODB connection, the values returned are always only a date without time. If I use convert(varchar(8), <datetime field name>, 8) to get the time part, I invariably get a 00:00:00 time, although I KNOW that these fields all have a non-zero time value.

The weirdest is that, if I just open the table in Access (using the SAME ODBC driver to link the table), I see the time in these fields !

What is going on, and how can I get the time portion of these dates ?

Thanks for help.
