Choose Find and Open from the File menu. When the dialog opens, find and right click on the database you want and choose Open Data Sheet Only from the popup list. This will open the file to the data sheet and not run the .Initialize procedure.
I am not disparaging your documentation and thanks for weighing in.
Pan X is so rich that I only scratch the surface.
I searched but clearly did not use the correct phrase.
I keep Cheat Sheets on lots of stuff. And have for Panorama for literally decades.
If I run into the same problem 8 months from now and I know that I ran into it before it is easier for me to go to my cheat sheet because despite not remembering the correct phrase or technical description I can refine the solution without sifting through the well written documentation.
Your recall is superb. You wrote the code and the documentation. I am just a user knowing that it can be done but not knowing how to do it sometimes.
My “Cheat Sheet” is the accelerant for recall. Lots of it are your replies and folks like Gary and Dave.
No criticism or complaints from me. It’s how I work.
I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to imply that there was anything wrong with using a “Cheat Sheet”. Just wanted to be sure it was mentioned that there is documentation about this. After all, someone else may find this post by searching a year or two from now, and I wanted this resource to be available.
Your recall is superb.
I do have the advantage of knowing that it’s in there somewhere. Usually I can find things immediately, but sometimes it does take even me a few minutes. There is a huge amount of material there. I’m really happy with the new improved search facilities in the help window – I do use those myself.
By the way, it is also possible to do a Google site specific search of the provue web site (which includes the documentation). I’ve not usually needed to do that, but I imagine sometimes that could be useful.
I have occasionally found this useful, taking advantage of Google’s search syntax and also, potentially, finding references in both the help database and the forum via a single search — for example (however unlikely):
(something AND "something else") OR "yet another thing" -"but not this" site:provue.com
As Jim has pointed out before, the help database packaged with each version of Panorama X is specific to it, whereas the online version might include details of features not yet released. However, there’s less divergence than there was a year or two ago.
