I have an application that interfaces to digital scale thru the serial
port. There does not appear to be any way to do this in power builder.
I have tried using the fileopen function, it works for output , but not
input. It returns a -1. Tech support does not have any solution. Cany
any one help me?

Post this in one of the public.powerbuilder newsgroups. There are quite a
few people who use the serial port in the PB applications.
