We build providex.dde and providex.ddf from our proprietary dictionary. I'm trying to figure out how to incorporate it with Providex tools like Nomads and the Report Writer.
I have several questions:
1) How do I set the global variables in the file name/path so that the PVX tools know where to find the physical file. I could probably figure out how to do it if I started the tools from within a Providex program that I write. I'm struggling trying to figure out how to do from the IDE.
2) How do I determine or force the dictionary to use my specific physical copy of providex.dde and providex.ddf? There are so many copies of those files in different folders that I can't figure it out. I even tried to see which physical file changed when I changed dictionary information, That didn't work for me. That wasn't logical to me.
3) Where can I find information on how to define the keys for a particular file definition? I could probably figure that out if I could get an answer to #2.
