How to guess the size of the fields ??
When you are working using database, is there a way to guess the size you would set for a particular field when you are implementing your table (Paradox) ?? I´m using C++ Builder and this is a simple application. It has been creating problems, because now I´m not being able to apply the changes I´ve made in my table using the Database Desktop, and the fields remains with the same size, always...
Like: The field NAME has width=256 ( I don´t know if it is mm or what) and when you set size of field in your table, I think you always put the number of characters. How can I match both, to make the application tidy ??
Is this clear ??
