At work I have been put in charge of a new project that utilizes a Paradox 3.5 database, and due to how old the software is, I am having problems finding any documentation as to how to work in that environment.
I like to think that I have a more than competent understanding of the theory of database construction/querying/etc, but most of my experience has been in an Oracle or Access environment. Therefore, I was hoping that someone might be able to point me to some sort of online tutorial and/or instruction manual, just so I can learn how to navigate through the interface, and perhaps some helpful keyboard shortcuts.
This might be a good inquiry for comp.databases.paradox.
Your basic trouble is going to be that Paradox-for-DOS version 3.5 is a very old version of the DOS product and probably can't run in a lot of modern environments. (2 GB was an inconcievably large hard-disk; 16 MB was an unthinkable amount of RAM.) You cannot plan on keeping this application the way that it is, nursing it along to keep it running a few more years.
I understand that 3.5 is EXTREMELY out of date, and from what I've been told, we're going to be migrating to something more up to date in the near future. For the mean time though, I need to be able to navigate through it. Thanks again for the newsgroup recommendation, and if anyone else can point me to anywhere else I would appreciate that as well.
