Many Advantage users have a repository of reports that where built with the R&R ReportWorks XBase edition from Liveware Publishing. Traditionally these reports used direct file access and could not utilize the security features of the Advantage Database Server. In addition, if these reports where accessing tables that where already in use by Advantage, Advantage had to be configured to use its Compatibility Locking Mode, as opposed to its more efficient and secure Proprietary Locking Mode. Starting with Advantage version 10, R&R ReportWorks files using DBF/CDX tables can now be accessed via the Advantage Client Engine.

 

 

Requirements

R&R ReportWorks XBase Edition version 12.6 or newer.
Advantage Database Server version 10.0.0.0 or newer.
Advantage Client Engine (ACE) version 10.0.0.0 or newer.
DBF/CDX/FPT data files.

 

Limitations

Advantage Local Server is not supported.
Data dictionaries are not supported (free table access only). DBF tables inside a data dictionary can still be accessed on a free connection, but if the server does not allow free connections (to force authentication), R&R access will fail.
Only supports the FoxPro DBF/CDX file format. No support for ADT or Visual FoxPro formats.
