Project Alias - A project alias, like public aliases, point to a folder. Project aliases are stored in the PDOXWORK.CFG file, which is loaded whenever you change working directories.

You can create either a public or project alias. A project alias, like public aliases, point to a folder. Project aliases are stored in the PDOXWORK.CFG file, which is loaded whenever you change working directories. You can think of project aliases as aliases that belong to a certain project stored in a specific working directory.

An interesting an side effect of this is that on an application where the working directory is on a network drive, the project aliases are available to everyone using that directory.  However, the public aliases are not usually shared across the network, unless the users are sharing the same config file for the BDE.  This does not appear to be a very common occurance.

Hi Dan: Yes, that's purpose of project aliases. They are pretty cool. The BDE config file is for spanning multiple working directories.
