    ADDT QuB isnt working for me

      Hi folks,

      I was doing the Discussion Board tutorial and got stuck at the part where i have to use the Query Builder to make a query.

      So i add a record set, make the basic selections and press the QuB button, i make the next basic selections and pres 'New Query'.. so far so good.

      The Query Builder interface loads and in the middle of the screen i see the message 'Please wait while loading...' and thats it. No tables are loaded, this is a screenshot: http://www.wicservices.nl/zbrush/builder.jpg

      I did some serious efforts to find the problem in this and other forums but cant seem to find the solution for me, i tried turning off firewall and anti virus, i updated all files in the include folder, tried it in FF and IE, tried it with a database with only two tables (my original attempt had 70 tables or something). Someone talked about system memory problems, but i think 1 Gb could be quite enough without other heavy apps running. I also tried it on different PC's on different locations, ehm i know i have access to the database and all.

      so i don't know :) anyone has a suggestion?

      oh, and i'm not experienced enough to make the query myself ^^ that would be the next step huh. This is the page in the tutorial, maybe someone feels like helping me out ^^ http://www.interaktonline.com/Documentation/MXKollection/#000000_Intro.htm

      look for:
      - tutorials
      - Discussion board
      - Post and list messages
      - Display message threads (first actions on this page)

      thanks in advance for any comments,

          Hi symvar,

          how many records do your 2 tables currently have ? I´ve heard of similar cases where folks tried to load tables with, say, 1000 records or so, what actually made the browser freeze.

            ehm, the database i tried to use at first has 78 tables with 2648 records but the other database has just 2 tables with 41 records.

                The problem I'm getting with qub, is that when I click the create recordset icon, and the window appears - the connection name will appear but the tables do not show in the drop down menu, so that I can select a table to work with?

                Any thoughts anyone?

                I'm using zonealarm with dreamweaver given super permissions.

                Thanks, Mark

                  Hi Mark,

                  can you temporarily deactivate Zonealarm (or even shut it down) and see if it´s better now ?

                    @ Mark:
                    does the mysql connection work when you use it for a simple query
                    and dont use QuB?

                      I had a problem recently with Qub - it turned out to be Firebug that caused the problem for me. I disabled Firebug and haven't had any problems since (so far)

                        Hi Henrik,

                        I tried this but it didnt work for me, however i started looking for a solution again and found my problem!!! Thanks for your reply ghehe.

                        For some reason (dont ask me why) when i set up a site in dreamweaver and the password contains a % symbol i have to place the number 25 behind it. For example a password 123%456 would become 123%25456.

                        This password with the %25 works only local, on the remote site the mysql connection file needs the password without the %25. I guess this is only with my current webhost or something but because we always use this webhost i'm completely used to work with this 'workaround'.

                        So i now tried to make a new recordset with QuB and just before i press 'New query' and enter a name i change the password in my local mysql connection file to a password without the extra '25'. and the QuB screen loads!!

                        It seems a logical solution now, but lol.. I think i'm quite lucky i actually found it...

                        @ Günter; maybe u can help someone with this problem ;p

                          I encountered this situation on a password with special characters as well. Not sure if it was the semi-colon or dollar-sign that caused the problem, but when I changed to a less secure but kinder password, QUB stopped hanging and loaded the data.

                          Thanks Symvar for the insight!

                          I hope that someone will succeed in correcting this so we can work with a more secure password in place.

                            hello all -

                            glad some have solved this in their issue. this just happened to me, first time ever, been using QuB for a while.

                            It loads, and then the list of tables is just empty.
                            If i go back to SIMPLE RECORDSET window, i CAN see all my tables.
                            AND i tried it for a different site, one i had used previously, with QuB, and it DID work there.

                            I recently acquired the WebAssist SuperSuite (any other comments about that...new thread :) ) and think one of the extensions has created a conflict.

                            When i get home i will try to isolate which one, and hopefully remember to let all you know the results in case it helps.

                            im thinking its a file somewhere inside (PC)User/Documents and Settings/Application Data/Adobe/Configuration/Shared...

                            but not sure. ill let you know, as well as try disabling firebug, (even though ive had firebug and been using QuB. I think. :) )

                              solved my version of this issue.

                              I had an "&" in a table name. changed it and, fixed!

                              rookie mistake. so any of u may want to check for any special characters in db or table names...
