    Zip/Unzip utility

    How can it be that something that is built into Windows is so complicated to incorporate into an Access App? Daniel Pineault has a nice PowerShell wrapper that was working great until my IT dept decided that calling PS commands from an MS Office App was bad JuJu. If anyone has something handy...

    Query Performance: Under the hood

    Queries have always been a mystery to me. Never really understood exactly what happened when I hit the "Run" button but I do remember getting all excited as a sailor on shore leave when I got the right results. It was Philipp who first introduced me to JetShowPlan and although I have never...

    Make it a great one! May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
