Hi

My point of sales receipts is compiled from queries that gather the following:
(1)      Taxes
(2)      Quantity sold & prices
(3)      Other calculations
So in short it is not possible to use the current form to act as a receipt report. These queries are the one providing data for the receipt report, that is why currently to print a receipt report you need to close the current input form and open the parameter query form.
Now I’m wondering if there could a better way of binding the parameter query using the input form so that people do not need to close the current input form but can just invoke the printing of a receipt from the same input form.

I Thought MS Access save data into the table immediately after leaving a control, if yes how can I use the current primary key of the current receipt form as part of the parameter query so that the document printed is the current document showing on the input form screen?
I want to maintain the current form parameter query because sometimes the document may fail to print, then with the current parameter form query available I’m able to preview the document and reprint it.

I know it is possible to attach a macro to either print directly to the printer or preview the document by using the built in macro wizard, but the problem is how to the current document I’m not sure here because this macro wizard will only ask for the report to be printed, this means that I will end will all receipts being printed.

Could it be that there is …

Server got encrypted with Hermes 2.1.
Act 2012 ADF file encrypted no bu available as bu drive also hit..

I can't tell if the encrypted 184meg file is the one needed or the bigger 440 meg ADF file. Trying to open, it says it was improperly detached and cannot open.

Is there any tool I can get to fix the ADF file, and create the associated ALF file? Tried to import the 440 meg ADF file into new act database, will not open, says corrupted. Client has NO support contract with ACT/Swiftpage.

Is there an Act Tech here that can fix this file? If I pay the ransom for the smaller file, get the decryptor tool and it is not current, I am out the money. I'd rather pay ACT to fix it, but they wont even talk to you without support contract.

Thanks.

I'm trying to list the relevant  regulations/acts that are applicable to

a) a CRM (Customer Relationship Mgmt) system : guess PDPA (Personal
    Data Protection Act) is applicable;  if it contains a US customer's data,
    guess GDPR is applicable.   What else?

b) for a procurement system,  Goods & Services Tax Act  is applicable.
    What else?

c) for a HR/Payroll,  "Computer Misuse Act" & what else?  Guess PDPA
    is not applicable for Payroll but applicable to HR (as Date of Birth
    & NRIC# is there)

We have a client that has ACT 2011 on Windows Server 2012 R2.  They have somehow managed to damaged all of their ADF files by messing with ACT 2011 and SQL server.  We have no idea what was done except that it is not working.

1. We are getting this error message with all the current database/files when we try to open them:

This database cannot be opened because the SQLServer version of this database cannot be identified.

2. When we restore backup files from before this issue occurred and try to open them we get a dialog box that say it will verify the database.  However, the next moment. we get an error message:

The log scan number (1201:656:1) passed the log scan in database 'Sales' is not valid,  The error may indicate data corruption or that the log file (.ldf) does not match the data file (.mdf).  ......


3. Finally, when we try to attach the file (that the client "messed with") to the database (via ACTDiag) I get this error message:

"The database was created with a version of SQL Server that is neither SQL Server 2005 or Server 2008.  Attaching a non-SQL 2005 or 2008 database is not supported."  However, I do not believe SQL version about 2008 R2 has been on this machine.

We are doing what seems to be endless research and multiple solutions for SQL and/or ACT and nothing seems to be working.  Any thoughts or advice?

Excel Table Support.
I have created a Table in an excel worksheet where users will be expected to add new rows manually. Note that this document will be a shared document on Sharepoint - so I cannot use any VBA etc.

I have created a number of other tables in the workbook that act as Data Validation lists. The data validation etc is working fine.

However - this is my problem. The user only has to enter two pieces of information in the table - and both pieces of data are entered into the first two cells/columns of the table. Normally this works perfectly - you just go to the first row under the table and begin typing - and when you tab to the next cell - the table automatically expands to add the row etc.
However, the first column (and second column) are both controlled by a Data Validation list.

The issue is - if you click on the cell below the table - the data validation is not available yet (as the table has not expanded) - so the person cannot "Select" from the list. If they attempt to type something - if they get it wrong and tab to the next column then they will of course get an error - because the table will expand and the cell now contains validation - so they either have to retry or cancel - both of which "remove" the new table row added - so the validation goes away - so they cannot select from the drop list (as it no longer exists on the cell).
So I am kind of between a rock and a hard place. I want to make it as simple as possible - basically being able …

I am working in Access 2010.  I have a main form with subform1 and subform2 (this is a continuous form) on subform1.  The problem is with the tab order of subform2.  There are only two fields  on the form.  They are phone, with an input mask, and phone type.  The tab order is correct and it should go to phone but the tab moves it from subform1 to the phone type field and completely bypasses the phone field.  The next tab takes you to the phone field.  This only happens on the first record.  Once the phone and type are filed in it advances to the second record's phone field first.

I set up forms like this a lot and have never seen it act this way.  Any ideas why this is happening?

My client lost email history and notes within his  Goldmine Premium Edition version 2017.1.0.422. I have image backups running. If I grab an earlier copy of the data base, he will lose data he has entered for the last 7 to 10 days (since he noticed the issue). Is it possible to just restore the missing email history/notes without having to resort to an older GB DB copy?

Hi
singleparentmeet.com is a really pitiful dating site. I want to unenroll, but their site is truly pathetic.
They don't have tech support and their help page requires 3rd party cookies.
Dating is a hotbed of scammers. Enabling 3rd party cookies doesn't appeal to me, especially from a crappy site that might have vultures, or Nigerians waiting for idiots to allow them access to info. Nigerian vultures!? How can I safely unenroll from this  site? Can I get VISA to read them the riot act? They will probably charge me soon, month end!

Thanks

Hi Experts

What is the Best Practice re IIS & RDS services?

We have 2 VMs on a HyperV: DC + RDS (both WIndows 2016)
Our CRM, ACT! from Sage,  is currently installed on the RDS but is only used internally.
We need to install a IIS / Web Server to give remote access to ACT! via the web

Can I use the RDS to install these additional components? My instinct is to build a new VM and install ACT! on that VM.

What says you?

Hi - We are running a terminal services/Citrix server 2016 with about 25 users, and use the CRM software ACT version 20 (latest). When we launch ACT, after about 10 seconds, we get the error "The requested performance counter is not a custom counter, it has to be initialized as read only"  (pcerror.png - attached) . Of course, this being a terminal services/Citrix environment, happens for all users logging in and using the software. I've contacted ACT support, and they are claiming its a Windows problem. ACT Support did send me an article that has instructions on how to replace/reset the performance counters on the server, but it hasn't fixed the issue. Also, when the error occurs, there are about 6 or 7 miscellaneous events that show in the event viewer, which I've attached as well. I'm just not sure where this error is coming from, and any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

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?

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?

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,

We are planning on standing up 2 Exchange 2016 servers. One in the Americas and one in Asia that would also act as failovers.
How can I setup the 2 IronPorts to differentiate between the two locations? Both would be serving the same domain.
