    Lightning does strike twice sometimes!

    Well SportsFans, when I left Italy, I resigned myself to the reality that I would never be paid to play with Access again. Crystal, you are somewhat responsible so if you ever find yourself in mid-Virgina, drinks are on me!

    Television Mind Control

    A few years ago, the wife and I were deeply engrossed in a series called Breaking Bad. About mid-way through the 3rd season, I looked over at her and said, "You DO realize dear, that this show has us cheering on a drug-dealer?!?" Now, years later, Netflix has managed to have us a actually...

    High Light current record in a continuous form

    Good morning AWF, I found this thread from 2004 and although the attachment's instructions work as advertised, I find it hard to believe that this hack is the only way to achieve this result. So, the question is, now that 16 years has transpired, IS there a better way to do this? Thanks in...

    Editable VIEWS

    Good morning AWF. Being new to SQL Server, I was under the impression that SQL Views were only useful in returning a RecordSet that was read-only. This was disappointing because I really wanted to take advantage of Server-Side Filtering. I came across this article yesterday and couldn't wait...

    Making do

    A few years ago I was traveling to somewhere and my connecting flight took me through Munich. It was 9am and there were Germans having tall steins of BEER. Who the HELL drinks beer that early and with breakfast?!? The Germans do and they are on to something. My wife does not drink and making...

    Greetings AWF, I came across the thread from another forum and asked the author permission to share. I cant call it a "nifty" utility/bit of code because here at AWF, "nifty" is a reserved word, right @Uncle Gizmo?!? I'll let Crystal speak for herself...

    Ponderings

    Something I noticed while quoting member's threads... When you are editing, the members number shows: We all gotta go someday...I had hoped my passing would be a little more cooler, but we dont get to choose everything, do we? Note: I had to alter the HTML tags to prevent formatting. As...

    Record Locking/Queue Based Applications

    Working offline

    I have searched the forum and some threads are close to addressing my issue but I am hoping for a better answer here. Bottom Line: I am looking for a way for users to work offline if the server is down and then synch changes when the server is up. I have researched and found some ideas but I...
