Where do I find reference, user guide, or help file for B4XTable . I assume that the files would be the same for B4A and B4J wouldnt they?.

Sorry! I should have posted to the original thread. I will be more careful!

I think that I followed all of the rules in the post
'for-new-er-members-how-to-post-a-question-issue.96964/'

I am new to B4X but have been in software development for a very long time so I do understand 'look first before asking'. And I had already looked at
https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...ortable-searchable-customizable-table.102322/ and have searched, viewed, and downloaded most of the B4XTable posts. I was looking for a reference, user guide, or help file so I wouldn't need to ask a lot of questions in the forum.

... so I do understand 'look first before asking...
Agreed, hence the I think your questions are usually pretty good.

Sounds like you've got most everything. Three other places outside of forum posts that I often refer to are:
- the B4X Goodies spreadsheet,
- Klaus' booklets.
- Erel's videos
but it's late at night here and my eyelids are too heavy to chase those possible sources right now re: B4XTable.
Now that it is less late (or more early?) I had a poke around, and:

B4X Goodies mentions the following posts (which you've probably already found ;-)

B4XTable - Adding custom navigation buttons [B4X] https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4x-b4xtable-adding-custom-navigation-buttons.102362/
B4XTable is a paged based table. The UI is made of a horizontal xCLV. The data is stored in an in-memory SQLite database. https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...ortable-searchable-customizable-table.102322/
B4XTable - Delete Row [B4X] https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4x-b4xtable-delete-row.103582/
B4XTable - Editable table and export to CSV [B4X] https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4x-b4xtable-editable-table-and-export-to-csv.102847/
B4XTable - Load data from SQL database [B4X] https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4x-b4xtable-load-data-from-sql-database.102520/
B4XTable - Multiple rows selection [B4X] https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4x-b4xtable-multiple-rows-selection.102364/
In this example the table is used to show the camera roll photos. https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4xtable-photos-album.103343/
B4XTable - Resize columns based on content [B4X] https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4x-b4xtable-resize-columns-based-on-content.102678/
B4XTable + jPoi + Excel Workbook https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4xtable-jpoi-excel-workbook.104720/
B4XTable with custom cells layout [B4X] https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4x-b4xtable-with-custom-cells-layout.102352/

Klaus booklets cover B4XUI generally but not B4XTable specifically.

Ditto Erel's videos.

Depending on how deeply you delve into the topic and what you discover, perhaps this is a sign that you are the Chosen One to document your explorations and post the Ultimate B4XTable Tutorial.

Yes, I had viewed all of the B4X goodies mentioned, downloaded almost all of them and traced the running code on 3.

I have not viewed the Klaus booklet on B4XUI but have downloaded all of them so I will read it.

I have not viewed any of the videos because I am mostly deaf and have a very difficult time on videos. But I think that I will try a few anyway after my appointment with the hearing aid people Thursday.

I have found that the IDE will give me a lot of information on the methods and properties just like VB6 does.

And I truely to thank you for all the info!

Did you have a look at this application B4X Help Viewer?
It allows to read the xml help files for all four products.
It is explained in the first B4X Booklets.

My initial thought to that was: no worries, the videos are on YouTube, and nowadays YouTube automatically adds auto/machine transcription to videos. It ain't perfect, but it's good enough, and anybody can go in and edit the mistakes.

But when I looked at the specific video to make sure I wasn't giving you dud info, well... it doesn't have transcription/subtitling, and it seems that the uploader has to enable/allow it. So I'll add that to the Wish List area of the forum, and perhaps magic might happen!
