BUG: RQBE Hangs FoxPro When the In Descriptor Is Used

ID: Q106703

2.00 2.50 2.50a 2.50b 2.60 | 2.50 2.50a 2.50b 2.60

MS-DOS                     | WINDOWS

kbprg kbbuglist The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for MS-DOS, versions 2.0, 2.5, 2.5a, 2.5b, 2.6
  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5, 2.5a, 2.5b, 2.6


When you create a new query and choose the In descriptor under Selection Criteria, no problems occur. However, if you also use the word "IF" as the first word in the Example box followed by anything else, the system hangs when you press the TAB key.


To solve this problem, do not use "IF" as the first text string in the Example box. List any other text string as the first example, followed by the "IF" text string.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


Steps to Reproduce Problem

WARNING: Close all running applications and save your data before following this procedure.

1. In the Command window, issue the following commands:

      SET DEFAULT TO c:\<foxpro directory>\tutorial
      USE customer

2. Under Selection Criteria, select any character field; for example,

   select CONTACT.

3. Select In. 4. In the Example box, type "IF" (without the quotation marks).

5. Type a comma (,) and then type anything else.

6. Press TAB.

The system will hang.
