What is FUNCky obsolete in Migration Assistant?
I am migrating from PB 7..0 to PB 2017. I am getting following error message for below mentioned code snippet.
Error message while using Migration Assistant for FUNCky obsolete:- "This match may be valid PowerScript syntax, but also matches an identifier in the search file."
Below is my code snippet:- 
If rownum > 0 then
For i = 1 to lb_1.TotalItems()
if lb_1.State(i) = 1 Then 
if right(lb_1.Text(i),5) = "(CAO)" or right(lb_1.Text(i),5) = "(MIT)" then
if where_clause = "where " then
  where_clause = where_clause + "(phone..CostCenters.GroupDesc = ~~'" + mid(lb_1.Text(i),1,len(lb_1.Text(i)) - 6) + "~~')" 
where_clause = where_clause + " or (phone..CostCenters.GroupDesc = ~~'" + mid(lb_1.Text(i),1,len(lb_1.Text(i)) - 6) + "~~')"
Please suggest if this is syntactically correct or if there is any other issue as per PB 2017.
Thanks in Advance

Hi Ankush;

  The FUNCky library is a very old 3rd party "add-on" for PowerBuilder. It has been defunct for a few decades now. If you have that library in your APP, you should consider looking at what features this old ANSI based library is using and then rewrite/convert them to pure PB 2017 code - which is UNICODE based. BTW.

  If however you do not have the FUNCky library used in your PB App, you can just ignore that part of the Migration Assistant search.


Regards ... Chris

Hi Chris,

How could I rectify if I have FUNCky libraries in my app.

I think we don't have any FUNCky libraries. But just to be sure about this.

Please suggest if there is a way to find it.

FUNCky was an extra cost 3rd party library that PowerSoft/Sybase sold. If you search your code for funcky32.dll you should see if you are using it.

Thank you Roland.


I have searched for Funcky32.dll, there are no results.

So I think we do not use any of the Funcky syntax's.

I will ignore this part of Migration Assistant.

My website has many free code examples of Windows API functions. You could look to see if I have one that will replace the FUNCky function you are using. If not, feel free to post a question about a specific function.
