Access 2003 Developer Extensions

Q: Access 2003 Developer Extensions

Is there anybody who has used Access 2003 Developer Extensions? Is it a tool which can pack an Access 2003 application. Could the packed application run stand-alone (no need to have Access 2003 installed)?

Preferred Solution: Access 2003 Developer Extensions

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My Access 2000 book says that the Microsoft Office Development Tools (ODT) do what you have asked about and is the only way to do it, so the later 2003 should do it as well.

Hello again,

I found out that these extensions are supposed to make it where I can export my access databases as .exe files. This would be great, since then I could just have a .exe for ones in the office to run, so that no one could edit forms, tables, etc.

Now, I googled it, and got this site. I can't seem to find where to actually download it however.

Is this a good fix for what I am wanting to do? This way, everyone in the office wouldn't have to have access, they could just run the .exe, and that would allow them to use the forms just as they would if they had the database itself.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Hey everybody

I've been trying to figure this out for a while, but just can't seem to get it to work right.

I have the Microsoft Office Access 2003 Developer Extensions, which has a packaging wizard, that is used to package up a Access database and include a runtime environment, so users without access on their computer can use a database.

I have access on the computer in my office, so I take the file I want to package, and run the wizard, creating a setup file for the database and runtime. Now, I go over to the server, run the setup program, and have it installed on the server.

I can run the database on the server fine. I open it up, it runs in runtime mode, just as the package wizard said it should, and I can do whatever I want. The problem I am having is, I try to create a share, so that I can share this program with users on the network.

When I do this, it just doesn't work right. It is saying that it can't find the file "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\ifg_agent_database\ifg_agents_modified_10_13_05.mdb"

Any ideas on what is going on?

Nope, not in 2003, you could write your own menu's that are active when the 'develkopper' uses the file.

Hello,                                              Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!Just hit Esc + Refresh and unit will reboot. You will see a screen that tells you OS verification is disabled. That?s the recovery screen. From there you can reboot into developer mode by pressing Ctrl + D.Note: that doing this will wipe all data from your device. Basically, the HP Chromebook 11 will reformat your storage space and set you up with a fresh version of Chrome OS with developer privileges. Once you log in with your Google account info, all of your settings, apps, and extensions will be re-downloaded, so there?s not much risk involved, but you will lose any files in your downloads directory, so make sure to back them up if you need them.Hope this answers your query, If you have any queries please reply back to me.Have a great day!

We've created a large access database using Access 2002 devleoper for each computer in the building. On a majority of the computers the program works fine, but on a few it doesn't. By Double-Clicking on the desktop icon the program begins to load but only goes so far then basicly stops. Checking the task manager it doesn't show the program running under the applications tab but shows msaccess.exe under the processes tab. There is no CPU usage for that file and I have to log off and log back on again. All computers are running WIN2k. The two particular computers that don't work are running wireless to the server to get the data using Cisco wireless cards and access points. Is it possible the mdac needs updating or certain drivers are out of date?

CLOUDY FILE GULPER Dropbox has come under fire from tech savvy chaps who are not happy about the company gaining access to a PC or Mac's operating system kernel.
Dropbox's Project Infinite is aimed at moving the service beyond being just a browser-based interface and integrating it more tightly with an OS so that files can be plonked into cloud storage in a more seamless way.
Dropbox also wants this deeper integration with a computer’s operating system and local file storage to prevent what it calls the "untrained intern problem".
This means that Dropbox wants to stop an inexperienced employee removing files from a shared Dropbox folder and screwing up the cloud synchronisation and file access for everyone.

Hello All,

Just recently my company purchased Office 2000 Developer Edition because they were in need of purchasing the Access Runtime Library, to distribute their Access Databases.

However as of yet, I have been unable to use the Access 2000 Runtime Development Tools to distribute these databases due me not understanding the process clearly (previously in Access 97 it was a case of install the program and away you went, now I haven't got a clue where to start as we weren't given any software manuals).

An urgent response would be appreciated

Many Thanks In Advance

Dear forum readers,

I have a problem when trying to install:

Windows 8 Developer Preview with developer tools English, 64-bit (x64)

When using the DVD tool from Microsoft as explained in one of the tutorials in this forum,
I receive the following error message:

The disc does not have sufficient free space.

I use a 4.7GB DVD disc, and the size of the Windows 8 Developer Preview with tools English, 64-bit (x64) iso file
size is: 4.83 GB.

Of-course this is the source of my problem, and i need a way to fix it.

What i am doing currently, is downloading the Windows 8 Developer Preview without tools.

I have read some solutions, but they did not offer what i am looking for.

I need a way to install the complete version with developer tools, including:

64-bit Windows 8 Developer Preview
Windows SDK for Metro style apps
Microsoft Visual Studio 11 Express for Windows 8 Developer Preview
Microsoft Expression Blend 5 Developer Preview
28 Metro style apps including the BUILD Conference app

I only have a normal DVD drive, no USB stick of the required size, but I have a second hard-disk with sufficient space.
AND I have an external USB hard-disk with sufficient space.

Tried to install from local hard-disk in Windows 7 by using the setup.exe in the sources directory, gives me the following error:

This solution starter shows how to add data from Project Server, as well as external data, to the Portfolio Analyzer cube, and how to create or modify views of the cube using Project Web Access. The documentation explains how to add new data dimensions to the cube from existing project view tables, how to extend the view tables and cube staging tables, and how to add data to the cube from external sources such as Microsoft® Windows® SharePoint™ Services.

The samples include three examples of extending the Portfolio Analyzer cube, with test applications and instructions on how to install the samples so that the extensions are executed every time the cube is updated.

The sample code and documentation in the solution starter includes the following:

Adding a Pay Period Dimension: update the cube staging tables with additional data from Project Server view tables, manually add a dimension to the Portfolio Analyzer cube using SQL Server Analysis Manager, and add the pay period dimension to a view of the cube in Project Web Access.

I want to merge 1 record from Access 2003 to Word 2003. After trying everything, I finally was able to get a process working where I opened Word and then ran a Word macro to run the merge, passing . However, it stopped working, and I can't figure out why. I haven't changed anything.

The problem is the same one that all the other attempts run into - Word 2003 won't let me connect to the database when the merge file is opened, if a record is open in Access.

I tried having my code in Access close the form, but that didn't work. However, if I manually close all the forms, so only the database window is open, then I can open the merge form manually in Word without any problem.

When I run the macro, Word askes me to connect to the database, then bombs out, saying it is locked or Admin hasn't given permission.

Anyone know a way to get Access to merge to Word?

A:Merge Access 2003 to Word 2003

Have you change from XP to Vista or a later version of Windows? OS security changed the way things behave in the newer Windows operating systems.

Connecting to an open file isn't the best practice anyway. Forms are often linked to tables which is probably why closing the forms works for you. A possible solution, if its important to keep the database open, is to make a copy of the table thats desired for the merge and update the copy as needed.

However, some users will go to Form 3, then exit Access. And they will forget which Form to continue from.

I am trying to convert a MS Access 2003 database to MS Access 2007. I have tried both the "convert" and the "save as" methods. The conversion process provides the message, "All open objects must be closed prior to converting to a different version. Do you want Microsoft Office Access to close he objects?" I choose Yes. The Save As window opens and I pick a valid location and name.

The status bar indicates Access is closing temporary objects, and then briefly displays the converting status before popping the error message that "You attempted to open a database that is already opened exclusively by user 'Admin' on machine <machine name>. Try again when the database is available."

The problem is that the <machine name> displayed is my own machine name. I've tried to convert from other desktops, with the same result. Access does not seem to be able to close all objects before attempting to convert to a new databse.

Does anyone have any idea how to resolve this?

I've read postings from OBP, Cristobal and others about the down sides of OLE, how it bloats a database and so forth. With that under my belt, I nevertheless have a need to inlcude Word docs in the Reports created by my Access 2003 database.

The spec is as follows:

The application is to provide a sales quotation tool. Users will add a quote by choosing the customer, adding parts to the quote and choosing pricing mechanics, Thats all easy to do and in fact is nearly complete. The user can then, by selecting one or more tick boxes, choose from a range of pre-formatted product literature which will be included in the output quote that is created as a report (then spooled to PDF). The pre-formatted product literature content is not needed to be visible in the form.

The product lit files are Word docs.There are about 30 or so of these different Word docs and they are stored on a central server (same path for each doc), so I see no problem in having a table containing the filenames as text file names with full paths.

So, when the report is run, the quote is produced, with full pricing and ALSO with the chosen word documents in all of their glory.

What is the best way to do this? Can it even be done at all?

Suggestions on a post card!

My company was using Office 2003 until 4 months ago when they moved to Office 2010. When they install Office 2010 Office 2003 was left on the machines so that we currently have both versions installed. I have developed and deployed several databases since Go Live, all in Access 2010, and all was going fine until Office 2003 was uninstalled from several machines and when they tried to open the database they got:

"Execution of this application has stopped due to a run-time error.
The application can’t continue and will be shut down."

I went all thought the code and couldn't find anything so on a whim our IT guy, the one that had removed Office 2003 reinstalled it and BAM, working again.

I have no clue as to what is going on here, Shared DLL, a Reference that's 2003, nothing. i need any thoughts as to where to look and what it might possibly be.


A:Solved: Access 2010 / Access 2003 Issue

When you uninstalled Access 2003 did you re-install or repair Access 2010, Office overwrites certain dll files so that the one in current use has control, if you then uninstall it the dll files do not necessarily return control to 2010, hence re-installing 2003 also re-installed the dll files.
Normally you can't run both versions of Access at the same time due to this problem.

My name is Dennis.
I have very limited knowledge of access. I have created a basic trouble tracking system for my office that starts with a switchboard. Four different User groups can create new trouble reports, check status of open trouble report, look at as list of closed trouble reports or look one trouble report with detailed log info. I only have one database and allow the users to select their "orgname" from a combobox with a value list. My problem is my boss doesn't want each group to be able to see any other groups reports. I'm wondering if I could first run another switchboard that would allow them to select their orgname with password and then pass the value to the database. Or I could just create four separate databases. But my boss would need to see all of the reports accross groups. I hope I'm explaining myself clearly enough. I'm sure you guys would will have some suggestions, just remember I'm fairly basic. Thanks in advance.

First off I know little to nothing about MS Access so pardon me if I use inproper terminology or just plain act like I don't know what I am doing. The problem here in our office is that I am 'it'. I know more about technology than the others rolled into a ball.

No that we have that out of the way we had an Access database with all of our client contact info in it. It sat on our server so that everyone used the same database and no one wondered why new info was not input, etc.

I upgraded my PC to Office 2007 to give it a whirl. I opened the database the other day to see what the interface looked like and it was spewing messages about some kind of security issues. I think that I just clicked "OK" a couple of times and discovered that it would not let me into the database forms anymore. The file is still there, but our forms do not exist.

Any ideas what might have happened or how to get them to come home?

I have an access 2000 database that I cannot view in design mode in 2003. In access 2000 I used to press the shift key and open the access 2000 database. It would then open up the data base for me instead of starting it in start-up form. But now when I try that in 2003 it just gives me the startup box, basically what a user would see when entering information. I was wondering how I would be able to view the database in access 2003 as if I was pressing the shift key and opening it up like in access 2000. I imagine it has something to do with the macros?

Click that and select office xp/2003 (will say one or other or both). Now if you save from 03 for 07 just save normally and the file will open just fine.

Hi All,
I am running Access 2002 and I am wondering what the difference is between 2002 and 2003. Books on 2002 are hard to find and so if I bought one for 2003, would it be suitable for 2002?

A:Access 2002 v Access 2003

They are very very similar. If you pickup a book on 2003 you will be fine.

I have a databse of construction field work orders. Each work order will correspond with a specific "GCS Job#", ie 2006-0006,2007-0011,2008-0001 etc. To create a new work order, one must select the GCS Job#. After that, all of the pertinent information for the job such as owner, engineer, address, etc. is updated into the new work order.


I want to sequentially number the work orders by the specific GCS Job#. I have used dcount and dmax to accomplish this, but each time I run it, I get the total number of records in the table, not the specific number of records per GCS Job# or ProjectID (a field that I created to use in my criteria. The syntax is as follows:

DCount([Field Work Order]![projectID],"Field Work Order",[Field Work Order]![projectID]=5)

I have used projectID as well as GCS Job# in my expresion and have changed the criteria to match specific projectID's with the same result.

Currently the table has five records, job #'s 2006-006 (three records),2005-0011 (one record) and 2008-0001 (one record). Regardless of the criteria, the Dcount returns 5. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

PS. This is the first step in developing an automatic sequential numbering system for job specific work orders. Any further suggestions to establish this procedure are not only welcome, but very much needed. Thanks again.

Im trying to perform some calculations using the Expression builder in Access. I am trying to multiply hours (stored as decimal) by another cell. I am aware that you need to multiply that figure by 24 to get the total time in hours, but Access wants to limit the total hours to 23:59:59 (the standard day) and then return the result as 00

How do you get access to display the total hours when over 23 and not just the time.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have created a query based on two tables. The first table has a one- to- many relationship to the second. The first table holds personal identification information. The records in the second table are arranged in chronological order holding event information regarding each person in table 1. Obviously both tables are linked. I want to create a query that will find all records in the second table belonging to a person or persons in the first. I would then like to exclude the very first record in (in time) in table 2 belonging to each person.

How can I do this?

Might look into using a sub query.

I have a database of movies with quite a few fields. In addition to the field "Title", I have "Year", "Director", etc. I have four fields for actors names, (i.e. "Actor1", "Actor2", etc.) where I enter the names of the four top-billed actors of each movie.

I built a report titled "Movies By Actor". As the name implies, it lists all the movies by actor. When I display the report, the actors are listed alphabetically, and under their name are the some of movies that they are in.

Here's the problem: It only displays the name of the film where they are listed under "Actor1".

Here's an example: In the database, record #32 is for the movie, "Catch Me If You Can". In the field "Actor1", I have entered "Leonardo DiCaprio", as he is the main actor. In the field "Actor2", I have entered "Tom Hanks". If I display the report of movies by actor (as described above), under Tom Hanks, the film "Catch Me If You Can" is not displayed, because he's not listed as "Actor1".

My question: Can I build a report that will list all of an actor's movies, whether he is listed as "Actor1", "Actor2", "Actor3" or "Actor4"? If so, where do I begin?

I think that part of my problem is that I don't know the language. Most of this forum is kind of over my head. I couldn't find anything that helps ... Read more

A:Can it be done in Access 2003?

The major problem is the structure of your data. The Actors should actually be in a seperate "related" table. If you look at Computerman29642's version of a Movie database you can see how this works. look here
There are earlier threads showing how he built it up.
However to answer your question, I think it can be done. I assume that you use the "Criteria Row" of Actor1 to "filter" the records to the Actor that you want.
You could try placing the same Criteria in the next rows stepping down for each Actor field.
So you would have
field name Actor 1 actor 2 actor 3 actor 4
Criteria Row 1 Actor
Criteria Row 2 Actor
Criteria Row 3 Actor
Criteria Row 4 Actor

where Actor is the name of the Actor that you are looking for.

Sorry it didn't preserve the spacing, the 4 "Actor"s should be under the 4 Fields stepping to thr right and down one row.
