Techniques for uploading files to the Database Exchange


#1

This is the simplest technique I’ve been able to come up with, based on Gary’s and James’s initial forays.

  1. Open the upload form and select Share>Add Database …. I find that I have to select this twice but that may not apply to others.

  2. Fill in the data boxes. DO NOT press Validate.

  3. Open or click in a Panorama X database, go to a procedure, remove and replace a character and save.

  4. Return to the upload window, click on Validate, then click on Close.

  5. I have found that, in every case, the window closes and re-opens with the Upload button available.

I’ve uploaded all of my current stuff so I can’t check this but I think that the above steps work only if you start off, not in the upload window, but in one of the already posted files in the sidebar.

Here is a revised approach. It looks ridiculous but it works.

  1. Open the upload form and click in one of the uploaded databases in the left sidebar.
  2. Select Share>Add Database …
  3. Fill in the data boxes. DO NOT press Validate.
  4. Open or click in a Panorama X database, go to a procedure, remove and replace a character and save.
  5. Return to the upload window, click on Validate, then click on Close.

I have found that, without fail, the window closes and re-opens with the Upload button available.

Yeah, I have little dance that I did in order to get the close and re-open.
