I have a client whose office began to act strange, it was super slow and wouldn't talk to each other and would crash. I decided a reinstall of Office was the best bet to fix the problem. After having difficulties uninstalling Office, where I ended up using REVO uninstaller to get it gone, I am now trying to reinstall the software. I get passed where I put my activation key in and everything seems to be going fine until it says that Office 2010 encountered an error and was not installed successfully. I now have a client that does not have Office and no solution in sight. All help is very much appreciated!

Hi,

I just wanted to create a batch script which should act as a watch folder, whenever a pdf file is landed in a specific folder it should open automatically and if possible it should get delete on its own after 2 days exactly...

So whenever the new file is created it should open on its own to the viewer..

thanks in advance

I currently have an SBS2011 running domain1.com in native mode (i.e. mx records domain1.com->public IP, ptr -> domain1.com) and I have another two domains which I've added as authoritive domains and use SBS POP3 connector to get email for them.

Lately one of the domains has been losing email and I want to make it native with the current host as a backup using mx records. To do this I've thought of the following:

1. mx records domain2.com -> public IP priority 0
    mx records domain2.com -> current host priority 100
2. Change current host to act as backup in case public IP goes down and forward email to it once it comes back up.
3. Make PTR changes.

Now my main issues are 2 and 3. Will I need to use cpanel to create the exchange email accounts in the current host or will it keep the email in a general store and send them to the correct recipients once the public IP comes back on. And will I need to make any changes to PTR? Some say yes others just say that I need to make changes to the SPF to allow sending from public IP. Will multiple PTR pointing to one public IP mess things up?

This is a copy of part of the article located here:
http://www.tomshardware.com/news/how-to-fight-fcc-net-neutrality,36017.html

net neutrality
vote takes place 12/14/17:


Even so, it is the work of but a moment, so we all may as well do it. Go to www.fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/express, and under Proceeding, enter 17-108 (the dystopian-named “Restoring Internet Freedom” order). Fill in the form very, very, very carefully, ensure you get an email confirmation, and submit.

Your voice will be louder, as it were, with a phone call. Call the FCC and leave a message letting the agency know that you want to keep net neutrality as it is. Dial 1-888-225-5322, and be polite, patient, and persistent. You want Option 1, Option 4, Option 2, Option 0. Enter a complaint on proceeding 17-108.

Here’s a sample script: “Hi, my name is ___, and I live in [city], [state]. I’m registering a complaint about the proposed repeal of net neutrality, because it will hurt American consumers, reduce internet access, and restrict the open flow of information. I strongly oppose the undoing of net neutrality, which is at the core of proceeding 17-108. Thank you.”

Then call your members of Congress. The FCC commission is appointed and makes these decisions, but Congress can pressure the agency to do the right thing, and it can also put forward legislation to make net neutrality law instead of just policy. Find your congresscritter at https://contactingcongress.org/, and call the local office …

Few days ago users start to complain that nobody can connect to the database located on the server.
So I start with the basics.
Verify that all the Act and SQL services are start it on both the client and the server. Make sure the Act sync is running on the server.
I reboot both server and client machine.
I move the database from the server on the local client machine to test it locally.
I even install Act on the server where the database reside. I also restore the Database from backup like few days before all this happens. Still the same error no matter from where I try to run it.

I am migrating away from Act! after years of frustration, but I find that the export function within the program is not great as relates to my ability to "carry along" my document attachments to contacts, histories, opportunities, and the like.

Is there a software program that will allow me to export these documents, hopefully whilst still attached/linked to the original item (contact, opportunity, history, etc.)

Many thanks in advance!

Hi experts, I have a client looking to move to RDS on premise or azure solution. This is because they are taking more and more remote workers on. Currently they have domain controller with ACT on it. Server 2008.
“ACT. The database sits on there DC server at present. Related to this is how Microsoft Query will work extracting data from the ACT database. If we move ACT onto RDS server (either on premise or Azure) and add Office 365 Pro so they can use remotely.
There are some custom reports in excel which use Microsoft query to look up on the ACT database directly and return the information to excel when we refresh the report in excel. First question is: does office 365 still offer this functionality (or the Microsoft query add on)?
Second Question: if query works with office 365 will it work if the ACT database is housed on the Azure cloud

there are about 13 users.
cheers for advance

Third Question: if all is set up here will the remote working setup still be able to use query with logging on remotely?

Hi Experts!

I'm writing a batch file that needs to read In a text file with multiple lines (2-3 or more) and assign them to variables (i.e. Line1, Line2, Line3).  which will then act on those to run jobs based on the variables read in.  What is the easiest way to do this preferably without for loops or delims. etc.

Thx,

Hi,

I am Rupesh & I am new to this forum.

I am trying to build a tool in excel which can update database maintained in access.

There will be 3 to 4 user for this excel tool which will be connected to one access database.

The excel will act as the front end tool & access as a backend tool.

I want excel VBA to perform 3 things:

1. It will update data in access based on 2 column which will act as a unique code.
2. It will add any new row if the data doesnt match with previous unique code.
3. If the user wants to delete perticular row / range then it will be deleted from database also.

Below sample of table:

Country      Product code      Sub-Brand      Mfg Base
Russia      SRU030008869020137      Syrups      Own
Russia      SRU030008869020141      Syrups      Own
Russia      SRU030008564220158      Tablets      Own
Russia      SRU030008564220258      Tablets      Own
Russia      SRU030008564220558      Tablets      Own
USA      SRU030008869020137      Syrups      Own
USA      SRU030008869020141      Syrups      Own
USA      SRU030008564220158      Tablets      Own
USA      SRU030008564220258      Tablets      Own
USA      SRU030008564220558      Tablets      Own

1st two column will act as a unique key.

We cannot use a replacement code since there will be multiple user working on different region, replacement option can change  or erase others database.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Regards,

Rupesh.

The following code connects only when ODBC is set up with Windows Authentication instead of specific user account. I have set it as User Defined. Is there a difference between User defined and Systen DSN in my case? Here is code the snippet :
OdbcConnection DbConnection = new OdbcConnection("DSN=NRFUsers");
            string UserId;
            string fullname;
            string email;
            string Act;
            string EmpNum;
            string Loc;
            string sDomain;
            try
            {
                DbConnection.Open();
                OdbcCommand DbCommand = DbConnection.CreateCommand();
                DbCommand.CommandText = query;
                OdbcDataReader DbReader = DbCommand.ExecuteReader();
               
                while (DbReader.Read())
                {
                    UserId = DbReader["UserId"].ToString();
                    fullname = DbReader["Full_Name"].ToString();
                    email = DbReader["Email"].ToString();
                    Loc = DbReader["Office"].ToString();
                    EmpNum = DbReader["Emp_Num"].ToString();
                    Act = DbReader["Action"].ToString();
                    sDomain = DbReader["Domain"].ToString();
                    WriteLog("User: " + EmpNum + " " + fullname + " " + Act, "NRFUser.log");

Hi,
We experience a problem with Outlook room booking in the following case:
1. I book a reoccurring meeting every Thursday for 5 weeks and add a Meeting Room to the invitation.
2. The meeting room is occupied 1 Thursday out of the 5 Thursdays in question
3. When I send the invitation, Outlook (the meeting room) declines ALL 5 Thursday meetings
What I would like:
4. Instead of Outlook (the meeting room) declining ALL 5 Thursday meetings, I would like the meeting room to accept the 4 thursdays where the meeting room is available and only decline the 1 Thursday where the meeting room is occupied.
In my old company, they had set up Outlook to act as bullet 4. But in my new company no one knows how to set up Outlook correctly, so meeting rooms will not dismiss all meetings in an reoccurring event, but only the one(s) where the meeting room is already booked.
I hope, you can help us with the problem :) Thank you!

In essence, my goal is to have the sub-domain land on the ACT login page and route all insecure traffic to the secure ports.

Which Database Choose?

This Article about choose the NOSQL database based on application requirement. Different NoSQL DB’s available, there are three primary concerns you must balance when choosing a data management system: consistency, availability, and partition tolerance.

 

* Consistency means that each client always has the same view of the data. * Availability means that all clients can always read and write.

* Partition tolerance means that the system works well across physical network partitions.

 

Chose the Database system based on your application requirement.

 Example Comparing MongoDB and CouchDB.

As you can see in the diagram, MongoDB and CouchDB are built with a slightly different focus. Both scale across multiple nodes easily, but MongoDB favours consistency while CouchDB favours availability.

In the MongoDB replication model, a group of database nodes host the same data set and are defined as a Replica set. One of the nodes in the set will act as primary and the others will be secondary nodes. The primary node is used for all write operations, and by default all read operations as well. This means that replica sets provide strict consistency. Replication is used to provide redundancy - to recover from hardware failure or service interruptions.

CouchDB uses a replication model called Eventual consistency. In this system, clients can write data to one node of the database without waiting for other nodes to come into agreement. The …
