For those of you working with Access / Office 365  with SQL Server back ends, and are on the current channel, be aware that it looks like a major bug exists with version 2009.

With this version, Microsoft has introduced a new data type called "Date/Time Extended" for better compatibility with SQL Server’s datetime2 data type (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/access-blog/introducing-our-new-data-type-date-amp-time-extended/ba-p/1746980) and it's getting activated automatically when it should not be.  

That means the next time you relink a table, the date/time field definition becomes the new data type.   The issue with that is there is no corresponding type in VBA and any code you have that works with the field will treat it as a string. This will break your application.

At the present time, the only thing you can do is roll back to 2008.

I downloaded an app that I found on Google Play called "SQL Client".  Its purpose is to connect to a SQL Server, from your phone, so that you can remotely run queries.

Upon login, the app wants a host name followed by the default port of 1433.  It, also, wants a user name and password.

What would the host be?  And, would the user name be "sa"?

Thanks!

I suggest you to raise this under questions rather as a post..
To answer your questions..

>> What would the host be?  

Host was your SQL Server Servername or IP for Default instances or Servername\instancename or ip\instancename for named instances

>> And, would the user name be "sa"?

It can be either sa or any login which you were provided to connect to that particular Server

There is a bug in the september cumulative (security-) update for windows server 2016 1607 that cripples the ability to pre-set security options using GPOs. Microsoft is aware of the problem and there are two workarounds mentioned.

Updated roadmap from Microsoft on Microsoft Access:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap

Enter "Microsoft Access" in the search bar to get the ones specific to Access along with checking "Access" under the product filters off on the left.

It's also been noted that they will do a better job of keeping this updated moving forward, so it's something you'll want to pin.

For all those admins who think immediate patching doesn't matter: without installing the August (or September) 2020 updates on your machines, any malicious insider or someone who simply plugged in a device to an on-premise network port can immediately take over the whole network.

Too bad: the problem was patched in August, the attack script was available (for people in the know) in its current form since February, maybe even much earlier.

Turn Windows 10 into an XP or MAC Look-a-Like

I found this article amusing and intend to play with some of these themes in a Win 10 VM. Strikes me as an excellent way to confuse the hell out of scammers if you're into Scam baiting too :)

Enabling the integration of SharePoint within Dynamics 365 gets the documents you currently have in Microsoft Dynamics 365 moved to Microsoft SharePoint, It is the best way I know of saving money on Dynamics storage, and having the documents in SharePoint is actually a plus. Check out the video I just made on how to enable it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABpHzvcEc-A

Attention, this is a warning you admins should take seriously: there is exploit code available for windows 10 that allows a local user to elevate to admin... so far nothing new, we have that almost every month. Only that this time, Microsoft will not be able to patch it unless you actively co-operate.

If you use WSUS or configmgr to deploy windows 10 feature upgrades (ANY version up to 20H1), you will HAVE TO decline those packages on WSUS/configmgr and sync the latest (patched) feature update bundles and approve those for deployment. Also make sure that no setups linger at your clients in a "downloaded, ready to install" state.

What the old, unpatched setups do: they allow attackers to create a fake temporary setup folder and place scripts within that get executed by the update service (=system) account. The same holds of course true for any ISOs that you might have downloaded before August 11th, 2020 - delete them and re-download them.
https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-US/security-guidance/advisory/CVE-2020-1571 assesses this as "Exploitation Less Likely" and "not exploited", but I saw videos of people demonstrating how to exploit it.
