2002 database and get the following error message:
Title: OffWH

I have now uninstalled and re-installed XP office and XP

have developed an application in access for one of my clients. I used the Access 2003 Developer Extensions to package and distribute a runtime version. He lost his install cd and now he can not uninstall the application. When he tries to go through the control panel it is asking him for the cd. I tried sending him a new cd but that did not work. Is there a clean way for him to uninstall? Thanks in advance for your help.

System Restore Causes Data Loss - Developers BEWARE
1 replies , 12/30/2005, 12:53:03 AM
I applied a System.Data.dll hotfix today and it did not solve the problem so I went to a restore point from yesterday. It restored and rebooted. I then went back to work on a C# Windows application in Visual Studio. Out of habit, I verified that all of my source files were in sync with SourceSafe. Lo and behold, the files on my disk were older than those I had checked in late yesterday. What does this mean? It means that System Restore includes ..cs and who knows what else in the list of files that it feels free to clobber. How many bugs have been reintroduced and how much work has been lost to this problem?!?!?! To round out this report, I undid the last restore, and suddenly my files were back in sync with SourceSafe. I still have a useless hotfix (hopefully it is *only* useless - KB 887549 ) but at least I have all of my source and who knows what files back. Finally, I followed the Microsoft web site to try to report this BUG and got some blithering idiot who insisted that I needed to pay $35 to report it *and* that besides, the lines were down and I would have to call back. What crap! Now, I can go back to trying to develop a workaround for "System.Data.VersionNotFoundException" - yet another Microsoft ADO.NET bug that I can't get any support for.

Developer Database Snapshots
2 replies , 11/25/2005, 2:09:01 AM
I'm developing tool for developers to create snapshots (i.e. backups) from different states of SQL Server databases. Later when required for unit and/or stress testing or code profiling developer could quickly restore database snapshots. This tool is to be very simple and at first only to support SQL Server 2005 and later to older versions. Also propably first version would be rather limited (as my time) including only one database and hopefully later expanding to support more databases and more fine-tuning of backup/restore options - since there are some. Also the snapshot tool would work easy "oops" -tool if user's routine accidentally deletes all rows in a database it could be easily backed up before catastrophy happens. I'm thinking of doing this as a Visual Studio.NET 2005 Add-In but including external API for unit testers and others to easily connect to this tool from external programs. Tell me what do you think - is this kind of tool worth doing ?

I am currently developing COM add-ins for Excel 2000 & 2002 using VB6 and the Office 2000 Developer Kit. If I purchase the Office Developer .NET tools to go with Visual Studio 2003 .NET can they be used to develop add-ins for Excel 2000 & 2002? ...or do the Office Developer .Net tools work only with Office 2003?

I have this MSDN CD Labeled "Microsoft Office 2000 Developer SR-1", which has some interesting tools for VBA, including the Access runtime, and when I try to install it, I get the following lengthy error "Microsoft Office 2000 Developer VBA Tools requires Visual Basic for Applications 6.0. Before installing Microsoft Office 2000 Developer VBA Tools, install Office 2000 or another application that contains Visual Basic for Applications 6.0. I already have Office 2000 Premium installed (SP2), so why is MOD telling me to install it FYI - The CD volume label is "MODSR1" Any suggestions? Is there a registry key somewhere that needs to be tweaked to point to something else or something like that Thanks.

Links don't develop???
4 replies , 3/2/2008, 6:15:47 PM
That may not be an accurate title. About half the time I download email using Entourage (Microsoft Entourage X for Mac Service Release 1, Version 10.1.6) I get a symbol for a link that, if things worked correctly, should develop into a picture. That fails to happen. I'm using a G5 (1.6 Ghz) Mac, running Mac OS X 10.5.2. Can anyone tell me what's wrong? It isn't a constant occurrence, just sporadic and sometimes (but not always) if I bounce up and down between one email and another the links will develop one, or two, at a time. Other times nothing changes, just the incompleted links are displayed. I'd appreciate any suggestions to fix this as its pretty annoying. jim I hope my explanation makes sense. If I could explain it exactly, I could probably fix it. I tried to use a picture of what I get as my avitar but don't know if that worked yet, guess I'll have to post this to find out.

Formula Development Help
2 replies , 10/1/2003, 8:49:19 PM
I hope I explain this well: I have a spreadsheet set to calcualte Home Visit Reports for a Social Service Agency Column B is an entry field for a LEVEL Colum D and E Have entry fields for number of visits. Column F should look at Column E and determine the number. The current formula is: =IF(E26>0, E26/E26,0) which of course looks at E and if the number is greater than 0 divides the number by itself and returns 100% as an answer, if not it returns 0%. I also need the same formule to return a "No Entry" if the field is Blank. I have tried adding : or IF(E26 is null, "No Entry") but that doesn't work. The next problem is Column G which if a string of IF statement that look at the LEVEL in Column B and assigns a weight to the number. The current formula is: =IF(C10="1-SS","3", IF(C10="2","1", IF(C10="3","0.5", IF(C10="4","0.25","2")))) This appeared to be working at first, but it will not return the correct answer for any LEVEL excpet for 1-SS. All others are returned as 2. I assume it has something to do with the "" "" but when removed the formula does not work at all? Any ideas on this anyone?? TIA

I downloaded the 2007 Access Developer Extensions and tried to build a setup package using the Packaging Wizard. Well, it crashed on me when I got to the last step. So I had to force the program to close. And when I re-opened Access it said that it noticed that I had a problem with the Developer Extension and did I want to disable it. So I said OK disable it. I thought I could reenable it again, but to my surprise, I could not seem to get it to be re-enable. Then I removed it from the list of add-ins, thinking that I could then add it back, but now I can't add it back in. I have tried uninstalling the Developer Extensions and then re-installing them, and that doesn't work. Question: how do I get the Developer Extensions to appear as an addin once I have removed it. When I press the Add button in the addin manager, I don't know where to find the file I need to. I have tried this file: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\ADDINS\AccessDE.DLL, but it doesn't add it to the list of addins. What am I doing wrong? Thanks, Mike H.
