Notes, differences among the versions.
Upgrading from VFP 6
When VFP 9 looks at VFP 6 reports, it identifies the previous printer, and checks the Save Printer Environment with that printer, which means AT RUNTIME VFP and the report look for that developer's printer... which might make those reports open slowly in the runtime. You'll notice this slowness when MODIFYing the report - and that should be your clue something's amiss. In our case, the developer's printer was across the WAN so particular reports opened slowly as XP searched in the directory. Craig Roberts
SET ENGINEBEHAVIOR 70
If you use more than one field PK in your SELECT ... GROUP BY commands.
(StateCode c(2), StateName c(20), CityName c(20), population i)
StateCode, StateName, COUNT(*) ;
FROM Cities ;
GROUP BY 1
gives an error for VFP 8 & 9 unless you use SET ENGINEBEHAVIOR 70
Local views (of DBF tables) when used in other LV's seem to be created with a NODATA.
