Hi all,

Just to keep all fellow Topdown users up to date:

I have succesfully implemented Topdown's SQL routines together with 
SqlExpress++ to convert some of my old DBF code to MySql. This is an 
ongoing process that will easily take me another 3-4 months to convert 
my whole application to SQL.

Thanks to Clayton's (bless his soul) research on SQL and his excellent 
routines I could do browses (TdSqlBrow), Data Entry Windows(tdSqlDEWIn), 
etc.

I am still in a learning curve but if it wasn't for Clayton's Sql 
routines and SqlExpress++ I would not have been able to do it.

Are there any other Topdown users that is using it for SQL?
It would be nice to have somebody else to rub shoulders with on the subject.

Regards,
Ben

Ben,

I am migrating one of my applications to SQL database (I choose 
PostgreSql), and I use SqlExpress for this purpose.  It works excellent. 
But, i don't have enough time (for now) to learn how to use TopDown, and 
I plan to start rewrite my console app in near future (about 5-6 moths), 
when I finish database migration.  In that job I plan to migrate 
part-by-part of app, depending of user wishes.

Clayton did bright job with his library, but I find Boris's base model 
equaly good and easy for implementing.

I would be glad if I could help in half-job (database) migration.

With regards,
Milorad
