Good Morning Ronnie,
I planned to send images also. That is not possible with sms.

But yes that code could have helped a lot.

In the meanwhile Installed 2019 yesterday for trial.
Started with arrayrowset experiments.
If I am able to ignore BDE even for temp tables.
Then it will be a huge advantage.

All my configuration data (including backend server name user logins
etc.) is in a dbf file which is loaded at start.

User has to select from the company he wants. Till this is selected I
cannot use Backend. Pan to shit all the data to a txt file and load it
to an arrayrowset.

Will require some time but can be done.

With temp table at few other places I was damn lazy in shifting them to
MariaDB. Hope to be able to bypass them using arrayrowset.
