NotePager 32 & NotePager Pro Support - RE: how to export the whole NotePager Pro v3 DB to NotePager Pro
Author: Tech Support

Hm... that 3343 error indicates that the nppv3 database has an issue that's preventing the conversion from running properly. If you would, please email a copy of that file to support at notepage dot com so we can repair whatever issues are present so it can be converted.

NotePager 32 & NotePager Pro Support - RE: how to export the whole NotePager Pro v3 DB to NotePager Pro
Author: rreid661
Subject: Conversion Error
Posted: Tue Sep 20, 2016 10:27 am (GMT -5)

I followed the below instructions to move my V3 database to the new V5 and now when I try to run it I get the following error:

Fatal database error: 3343 Unrecognized database format 'C:\ProgramData\NotePage\NotePager Pro\5.0\npp.mdb'. in Procedure: open_database Program Halted

Any ideas?



[quote="Tech Support"]Here's what you'll want to do:

1) Open NotePager Pro version 5.

2) Go to Help - Folders.

3) Make a note of the Global Database folder.

4) Close NotePager Pro version 5.

5) Copy the npp.mdb file from NotePager Pro version 3 in to the NotePager Pro version 5 Global Database folder.

5a) If Windows asks, you do want to overwrite the existing file.

6) Run NotePager Pro version 5.

7) Enter your NotePager Pro version 5 registrationkey.[/quote]

Nice, i'll give this a shot and see how it goes! Thanks

Ah ok, can I raise that as a feature request? Some way initiating AT commands without needing to stop the Connector and connect with putty etc?

As you noted, the only way for PageGate to pass the init string is to have the program attempt to send a message. There isn't a way that I can think of that you can trigger PageGate to issue a single AT command unrelated to a larger messaging sequence.

So, the technical answer to your question of whether you can drop a file for GetAscii to force the AT+CSQ is yes, you can, but it's going to send a message and won't singly issue the AT+CSQ command.

Just a quick question, as the log file will only have the AT+CSQ from the last message that was sent. Can I drop a .asc file for the GetAscii module to pick up that will force the AT+CSQ to be issued?

Ah ok cool thanks, just hoped there would be an easier way to do it -

First shot at the regex is (maybe useful for someone else) -

^(.*Received:\+CSQ:.)(.*)(,)(.*)()(.*)()$

PageGate will pass the init string any time it is capable of using the COM port. The trouble is that if, as you mentioned, the COM port is locked, the program doesn't have any way of passing the init string to query the signal strength because it can't communicate with the device.

So, you can monitor the pgdial1.log file located in the PageGate Logging directory for the CSQ responses to alert on a low signal strength value and you can also monitor that same log for "Warning - Unable to open COM port", just in case PageGate can't communicate with the device.

Yep, the init is set as AT+CSQ for the Carrier
