Alan Simpson.. the worst paradox books in paradox history.. he was the one 
who had all the noobs using Edit Mode and trashing their data !!

I gave you the text version of the complete help system, from playright 
pro.. you lost it? :-)

so.. what is it about Format that you need to know?

Implementing calculated fields in forms has prompted proper translation of 
the pdox FORMAT command.

Unfortunately, I don't have the spec. The only pxoxdos book I have is 
"Mastering Paradox 4 for DOS" by Alan Simpson and
it does no more than mention the command with one example. Similarly online 

Anyone able to help?

As an aside, at the back of the book I noticed two beautifully perforated 
pages of quick reference Rolodex cards. Very
quaint! Anyone still use Rolodex?
