How to make AutoUp Function properly [FM3 / Compiled under Clarion 10]

Hello Guys,
I’m trying to use the autoup function by FM3 in my sample program. I attached the source here for reference. (2.0 MB)
What I’m trying to accomplish is to automatically update the table structure of customer whenever I want to update/add specific column on the dictionary. Based on their document(FM3) it automatically upgrade the table structure using autoup function.

The instructions that I followed was before changing the customer table, I will add version number(1) to the properties of the table,add the fm3 functionality and check autoup function, and re-compile the source, run the program, and then add new column(tag) in the customers table and change the version from 1 to 2.

After recompiling and running the program, I still got the Error 47 (D00001) Invalid File Structure, which means its not working for me.

Upon Checking on the UPG Analyser, Version changes from 1 to 2 is recorded to upg.tps file

I think there is missing instruction(s) that is needed to apply. I am asking for your help.

Thank you in advanced!! (and please excuse me for my bad English hehe)

Could it be your app is ABC?
In that case you have to do the following.
Open your app, go to Application -> Utility Template (Ctrl + U), select from the FM3 Class:
SupportABC - Complete FM3 installation for ABC
Recompile and it should be okay again.

This should be done after each Clarion update.


I didn’t expect it to be that easy man, you’re a lifesaver. Thank you so much Sir!!
