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.)

A: Shipping Database Software?

Microsoft Access 2000 just happens to come with a "built-in" Inventory Control database that you can customize to make your own. If you don't have someone in-house that can customize it, there are many Access database developers out there. You can even email me for some referrals.

The database can be web-based (you'll have to talk to somebody far better than me for that!) or just stored on your LAN for multiple users. You can set security in Access to keep certain people out of certain parts of the database and everything.

I don't love any software manufacturers. But you'll get a whole lot more support/help with Access than you will with ACT or some of the other ones out there.

Listen, you should never go into a project this way, tho. What you really need to do first is sit down with your people and make a list of all of the capabilities that you want your database to have. You also need some reading and other materials. Go here regardless of the software you might end up using.

If you have any specific questions, feel free to email me at [email protected] Just remind me who you are if you email. Good luck.

Working on a pc with xp home - a dimension that is probably about a year or less old. I find no backup utility on it. Sonic dvd writing software you have to upgrade to use it for backing up your data?

I did read in an xp book that with xp home you can find on the OS cd - if you have one - the ntbackup.exe file buried somewhere, but this will not write to cd. You have to write to your hd and move the backup file to a cdr or rw.

Thought all those recordable drives automatically came with some backup utility. Am I missing something?

Can anyone help please with a solution that wont cost or confirm if he has to payout for help from Acer or buy a whole new OS?

Forgive me if you have answered this time and time again and if so please forward me to the thread. I had a quick look and didnt see any threads on this but I have been tring to resolve this for hours for a friend who is panicking (he is a step away from being a technophobe) and I also need to get on with my own work.

After having problems with his system and doing a Vista system restore this error as in the title of the thread comes up when my friend tries to log in (the wording of the error may not be quite right though the code is correct). I looked at the microsoft website but it wasn't there in the error search. The closest error is "The Software Licensing Service reported that that the licensing evaluation failed."

It is an Acer desktop and when I asked Acer for help they said the system should have been restored using their system restore and it would now cost my friend ?48 and take three weeks to get restore disks to him.

A:Error code 0cx004e002, software licence inconsistant with software licence database

Well thanks for the help, it was sure nice to get some advice

All I wanted to know was if there was any other avenue my friend could go down to get his problem sorted other than having to fork out ?100 for a new OS or ?48 (and wait 3 weeks) to get the Acer restore disks sent out. I did follow the sticky thread on authenticating Vista which guided me to system properties to click the authenticate button/tab to try to re-authenticate the user key BUT I cold not find the autheticate button/tab and so I couldnt even carry out those instructions.

Surely if my firend has had this problem with his Acer desktop then others will have too. Its easy to expect that if you have Windows Vista you should be able to use the restore function that is their for you protection built into the OS without locking it up and having to pay Acer ?48 to get it sorted because you didnt know you had to use their restore function.

Hi

I have a friend with a garage business mot's, tyres etc, and he has an old ms dos type database system on there. At the end of the day he has to transfer the days business details onto a floppy and put it on the House PC.

Obviously this is out dated so he would like to link the house pc to the garage pc and have a dynamic link if you like wel you know what I mean.

First off I was wondering if anyone knew of a good software package that would do what he wants, invoices, receipts, stock management etc.

I woulsd also like advice whether he should store the database on a server on the net or maybe just a server in the garage that the house pc and garage pc could access. Or even on the garage pc that the house pc could access

Its all a bit vague to me. I have a server that I could try it out on but primarily I want the software first

What is the best software to use to create a corporate inventory/POS (point of sale) database? I do not want an off-the-shelf package since this has contributed to our current mess.
I am starting out in Access but am not sure if this is the best way to proceed.
I would be recording sales, purchases, trabnsfers, etc. of roughly 65,000 separate SKU's and so the database will be quite large with 40+ users and a million sales invoice lines a year. Can Access handle this traffic?
Thanks.
 

A:Best Database Software

It probably could, but it would be slow as molasses in the winter. I would suggest you look into either MS SQL Server or Oracle. You can still use Access as a front end (forms and reports), but I would suggest something web based (ASP).

If you have Access it is ideal, I have already created a CD/DVD collection database for someone else, which held every CD and every song title by every Artist and his collection was HUGE (697 entries under A in the a;phabet alone). It would be easy to add the Movie section to it.
You are quite welcome to a copy of it or I can modify it for you.

Looking for an opinion on the best software for website design and database to fit our needs.

About Us:
Our level of experience is minimal. We understand the basics and will make it work if the software is somewhat user friendly.The software must be non-programmer friendly.

The Website:
Will have roughly 6-10 pages of interface for visitors. When you sign up there will be about 70 pages of 'database' interface with help, support etc. Users will login and store information on the database.

Website Design: Must be non-programmer friendly. Fairly inexpensive. We prefer resident software, not online design.

Database: Must be non-programmer friendly. Fairly inexpensive. Must convert to php/mysql. Must be able to handle a large number of users.

Any thoughts?

A:Database and Web Design Software

Hi and welcome to TSG. Adobe DreamWeaver is the best software for web designing, in the web designing world. Anyway it is bit expensive. So if you are looking for a free software and if you are a Microsoft user, you can download "Microsoft Visual Web Developer" for free from there site. Those are the best software for web designing. There are lots of other software which will give you the "Click and Drop" facility but I can't recommend them because I have seen lots of people having problems with them and I haven't use them.

For the database question, MySql is a good database management system and if you don't know SQL, you can use MySql/MyAdmin. Manually installing the database is a real headache so download and install XAMPP from the web site of Apache Friends. It will install Apache server, MySql and many more.

Apart from these, you can use JOOMLA, because it is a "Making stuffs easy" software. It has it's own templates and much more. I can't tell any more about that because I haven't used that, because I create sites manually.

Please ask an Mod or Admin to move your thread to web designing and develpment section, so you will have more answers.(You can do it by clicking the REPORT button at the right side of the bottom of your thread. It will open a window. Type there that you want to move this to Web Designing Section)

A:music database software

A very good freeware music manager is MediaMonkey.

It's a good idea to have a standard naming convention for the files and folders. I keep all the tracks for an artist in an Artist folder and inside that is a folder for each album. The filename I use is Artist - Track Number - Title. Other people don't like all those folders so they use the filename Artist - Album - Track Number - Title and put them all in one folder.

Since I have a large collection I also group artists by genre, so I have Classic Rock - American, Classic Rock - English, Jazz, Blues, Hard Rock-Alternative, Pop, etc. But everybody has a different way of organizing their music, it's whatever makes the most sense to you.

Hi folks.
Can anyone reccommend a program that would act as a database and which could be used to produce ID cards / security passes.
As far as I'm aware, each record would need to hold some basic details about the staff member (name, department, job title etc) plus a photo and probably the company logo.

From this database, we'd need to be able to directly print a record and produce an ID card for each individual (which we would then laminate). It would have to be easy to update when new staff were employed.

I imagine this could be done with Access although the number of photographs involved might cause a problem. Surely there must be some dedicated program that can do such a job?

Cheers

Hey folks. I'm hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction. Let me preface this question by saying that I and my coworkers have no knowledge of database software.

Currently, my small company uses an Excel spreadsheet as our database. However, this is obviously very limiting in its abilities. What I'm looking for is in easy-to-use program that can automatically generate a client ID field. For example, a typical client ID consists of the last two digits of the year ? followed by a four digit number. An example would be 15?7750. It would need to have various fields of data, such as description of project, client address and billing information etc.

So what we are imagining, would be create a new entry that automatically generates the aforementioned ID field, and the user simply filled in the rest of the information. One hugely limiting factor of an Excel spreadsheet, is only one network user can actually use the spreadsheet at a time. We would like a program that will allow multiple people to access the information or create entries at the same time. An additional feature would be for our staff to have the same capabilities of access and creation from mobile devices such as iPhones or iPads. Finally, we deal in multiple PDF files for every client. An example would be a copy of an invoice, laboratory results, and a report. It would be great to be able to load these files into the database as well so that anyone accessing a particular client i... Read more

Hey guys. I have a question about databases/lists to which the solution is hopefully simple.

I have a list of data in 3 columns that I can import in Excel or Access. In other words, I have many records with 3 fields each. Now I want to be able to "search" a field of all the data for a particular phrase. For example I want to see a list of all the records that have "hello" somewhere in column B. I know this is basically the "filter" command but I find it to be quite awkward. I want a simple easy way to just search for "hello" in column B and click "search" and see the list... Nothing fancy.

I don't know Access too well but is there a way to do it there? Maybe make some sort of form or query or report or something? Maybe if you pointed me in the right direction I could read the help files on that and figure it out. Is there a template for this anywhere?

What about a third-party software that could do this? Just import a list of data and then you can search it as you please. Any ideas? I'd REALLY appreciate your help!!

I'm not sure if this is the correct place for this topic, but I cannot figure out the problem so please help. We have training software that uses a database saved on the network. We never had a problem until we switched from Windows XP to Windows 7. Now we get errors quite often. Say a user is on one of the pc's and is having no problem, sometimes the 2nd user gets in successfully and it ends up throwing an error out to the first user. When I get out of the application, the .ldb file is still out there, which I wonder if that's whats causing the problem. So could it be a problem with Windows 7 that it's not removing the .ldb file? We also have a couple pc's with XP that are used to track the training progress, and these have never caused an issue before, but curious if the combination of XP and Windows 7 machines could be causing the problem? I've tried XP mode on the 7 machines and still having the same problems.

OK the problem we are having is we have this really old accounting software. We were running all Windows 98 machines before upgrading to XP last week. The way the software works is that it is installed individually on each computer but it points to a mapped network drive on another XP pro "file server" to get the database information such as customer list, etc. On the "file server" the program opens, closes, switches users, etc fast. On the 98 machines it worked fast as well. The problem is that right now the other workstations are extremely slow when opening the software, closing the software, and switching company names (we have two company profiles on this software). Once you are in the software it is fine. Any idea what may be causing this and how to fix it?

Here are the basic specs:

I'm building a database application in Visual Basic .NET and I want to know what is the equivalent code of this when I want to make a connection to mysql:

Protected connString As String = _
"Provider = Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
"Data Source = " & loc & "\dbProject.mdb;"

Private cn As OleDb.OleDbConnection = New OleDb.OleDbConnection(connString)

Private ConnectionString As String = connString

I can't figure out how to add a column to the right of all my data. I insert column, and it inserts a column LEFT of the column my cursor is in (the very last column). And I haven't figured out how to manipulate the columns to move them around like I can in Excel (which is still a hit or miss thing for me - anyone have the tip on how to do that, too?)

A:Adding database columns to the RIGHT of the last database column

For any curious, I did find a way... You have to open design view and add it in one of the blanks beneath your last entry.

Not quite as easy as just right-click > insert, but it works.

I am just starting to us VB 2008 Express. There seem to be two different types of database I can create in it. I see something called "local database" and something called "Service-Based Database". Can you tell me what is the different between the two? I am developing the application on my computer now but I would want to have the database on the server after so multiple users can access the database. I most likely be using a web hosting company for this. Thank you.

Hi,
I don't support Access, nor have I been trained in it, but I've been asked if I can help in this problem.
An Access database connects externally to a SQLServer database at login time for the application. How do I find which external database they are connecting to? I know that there is a way to go behind the forms to see the source code, but I cant remember how to do this.
I cannot find an obvious User/System file dsn on the PC to give me a clue.
Thanks in advance

Hi,
We just found that some of our applications that depend on MS Access 97 database format could not open certain database tables. The error displayed is "Unrecognized database format". This issue started occurring after the January '19 security patches
from Microsoft were deployed on our workstations.
After researching online, I came across https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4480960/windows-server-2008-kb4480960
I see that this has been marked as a known issue and that Microsoft is working on a fix that is estimated to be ready by early Feb. Last update was on 1/11

Are there any new updates regarding this issue?


Thanks,
Vishal

I've had good luck with HP computers, and recently ordered a new EliteDesk. The problem is, I paid a premium for next-day delivery. The unit was shipped from Texas (to Northern California) on May 25th. It is now May 31st, and I don't have it yet. FedEx dropped the ball and failed to deliver it today, and they say I'll have it tomorrow -- but in the course of my discussion with them, they said it was shipped GROUND. Because it was shipped ground, I am certainly entitled to a refund on the premium shipping charge that was billed to my credit card. But here's the real problem: As far as I can tell, there is NO page on the HP website that provides a phone number I can use to call and complain about this. I have looked and looked and looked. I would love it if some kind person would provide a customer support phone number so I can call and explain the problem to them. Or even a URL of the web page that has a phone number. I do quite understand that large corporations don't want to hear from customers after they have made a sale ... but in this case, if I don't get a commitment from HP to rescind the charge for next-day shipping, I'll have to have my Visa cancel the entire payment for the computer, and then where will we be? It will be a headache for everybody. So how about a phone number, eh?

  I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details). If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.
Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forum.
