All entries in the FoxPro calendar/diary tool are saved in the active resource file (FOXUSER.DBF by default). You can create these entries under program control and display information saved in the calendar/diary, as explained below.


All entries related to the calendar/diary are read from the active resource file. To enter information under program control, you must operate from a database that has the same structure as the original FOXUSER.DBF file. This database cannot be the active resource file at the time the data is appended under program control.

NOTE: There is one record per date.

The fields and their contents are as follows:


   TYPE          C                12
   ID            C                12
   NAME          C                24
   READONLY      L                 1
   CKVAL         N                 6
   DATA          M                10
   UPDATED       D                 8


Contents of the Fields

TYPE should be replaced with the string "DATA".

ID should be replaced with the string "DIARYDATA".

NAME should be replaced with DTOS(<mdate>), where <mdate> is the date to be selected in the calendar. The data in NAME should be character type data and have the format YYYYMMDD.

DATA should be replaced with the text to be displayed in the diary. DATA is a memo field. To place data in a memo field, you can use the APPEND MEMO command.

CKVAL should be replaced with VAL(SYS(2007,DATA)). SYS(2007) returns a character expression, in this case the checksum value of the memo field.

UPDATED should be replaced with the DATE() function (system date).

After the data is replaced in the database, the database should be closed. It then can be used as a resource file.
