  • Converting from QB4.5 to PB3.5

    I have a suite of programmes in QB4.5 which start with a menu programme
    Each of the programmes in the menu are chained from the menu and when the finish chain back to menu
    How do I do this in PB3.5

    You create a suite of programmes in PB which start with a menu program. Then your other programs are CHAIN'ed from the menu program. When each CHAIN'd program finishes, it CHAINs back to the menu program.

    In other words, it works the same. There are some restrictions if trying to pass, say open file handles, and if your QB 4.5 suite is using the run time (versus being compiled for 'standalone'), there is some other fuctionality which may differ, but all-in-all it's pretty much the same.
