    Medical checkups

    I had a top and end checkup during the week - colonoscopy and gastroscopy. I've reached an age where medical advice is for routine checks - annually for gastroscopy and three yearly for colonoscopy. I've had polyps removed from both ends in the past. Preparation for the gastroscopy is easy -...

    Power Usage

    When I got solar panels installed about 18 months ago, I also got a product that measures the power use of various circuits. Usage is measured by CTs (current transformers).

    Code to list command bar controls

    This is not a question but some code which some others might find useful. I have been commissioned to upgrade an MDB database, including installing a customized ribbon menu. While I could see the old existing commandbar structure in 'Add-ins', I also needed to know the call back functions...

    Amend a multiple field index

    I had need to add an additional field to an existing multiple field index with 2 fields. This index was not at the end of the index list so I wanted to insert a row. I could see no way to do this and it was faster to delete the existing index and then create it again with the 3 fields. This...

    Different versions of Access on same PC

    I maintain Access systems for clients using different versions of Access. Prior to Access 2007, I had no problems running different versions of Access on the same PC. I'd always install the versions in successive order, and of course, in separate folders. With Access 2007, I found Access...
