I guess you mean that you can use a Shell command to send faxes with the services? I hope you're right.
Of course APIs almost never have documentation for VBA so you have to wing it, IF it's possible. I have seen some that will take a cURL command, which I BELIEVE is built into Windows so you...
Got it. Thanks for clarifying! :)
The reason I thought I'd ask is because sometime "soon" I will be looking into faxing from Access and I thought that if you (or anyone else) knew of a good service and used it successfully then someone could help me with a head start. I figured it couldn't hurt...
Just to clarify: did you use faxing services with Access or in some other way? I know that Access hasn't been mentioned in the thread but in the context of the forum, I thought you might have meant using Access.
Like many things in life, that's only minor IF you know how to solve it. The article doesn't state how clearly that information will be conveyed to the person trying to activate the spreadsheet/Word doc/Access app.
From what I gather in the article:
- I am not sure how Windows can determine the source of an application but I do remember this kind of thing way back in the Win XP era where you had to click unblock on the file properties.
- You might be thinking of setting a Trusted Location? This requires...
I don't know if people have seen this but it might affect a number of Access users, so in case it helps to be aware:
Microsoft to block Office VBA macros by default
It seems to only affect if the application came from the internet, but people do use the web to distribute apps.
Hey @NoLongerSet (Mike?)
I just want to let you know that I found out about your blog a few weeks ago from Karl's newscast and I immediately bookmarked it and read it every day.
To anyone looking for an awesome Access blog, you want to check out https://nolongerset.com/ !!!
All of these methods of good practice when designing and deploying an Access app are important and should be followed.
But it raises the question: WHY did it work well over Win 7 and is suddenly slow on Win 10? I've heard of this happening with some of my own users, to be honest. (Note: MOST of...
On the one hand, it's good that Microsoft is responding (somewhat. sort of. on a limited basis) to the fact that there should have been web functionality ages ago to keep Access relevant.
On the other hand, I wonder if there will people who got burnt by Web databases (2010) and Web Apps (2013)...
