FieldType P = Picture

FieldType P = Picture

Post by Q3JhaWcgRm » Sun, 12 Aug 2007 00:04:03

In glancing through the help files, I saw a reference that I have ever
noticed before and would like some information on it if anybody has it.

under ALTER TABLE -SQL Command, the FIELDTYPE parameter references the
FIELDTYPE P datatype Picture.

I cannot seem to locate any other references to that datatype.


Thanks in advance.

That was there for VFP3 for the Mac. It's not used anymore that I know of.

AFAIR, that was a Mac field type. References to it remained
in VFP help up to VFP8 but it's gone in VFP9.
