SAP B1 - Dunning Wizard - the default reports are PLD - I'm using Crystal Reports and have created a report however I'm not sure what parameter SAP B1 uses from the dunning wizard screen to pass to Crystal.  So, does anybody know which database field I need to use for the DocEntry@ parameter?  The report runs in crystal but in the dunning wizard screen I get an error 'No matching records found' RITM ODBC -2028 Message 131-183
We have a database related program (Event Wizard - https://www.eventwizardpro.com/) that was just woke up to these error messages.

This is on the login screen:
Warning: mysql_num_rows(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in C:\Program Files\EventWizard\Apache2\ewiz\includes\sessions.php on line 71

And after a successful login (allows login, doesn't give a invalid user name/password error) it gives this error:

Warning: mysql_num_rows(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in C:\Program Files\EventWizard\Apache2\ewiz\includes\sessions.php on line 71

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at C:\Program Files\EventWizard\Apache2\ewiz\includes\sessions.php:71) in C:\Program Files\EventWizard\Apache2\ewiz\includes\sessions.php on line 74

I am sure these errors are program specific, but from the error messages can you recommend anything to do as I am not well versed in SQL or Apache or MySQL.
Regarding Power BI On Premise Gateway:

The Login User created on the SAP BW server\database  which will login into the server\database from the on premise gateway.

What is this configuration required of the SAP BW server\database gateway user which the Gateway will login into to create the bridge.
vCenter 6.0 upgrade failed, but the rollback uninstalled vCenter completely.  Now I am stuck with a vCenter 5.5 database and no vCenter.  How can I install vCenter from scratch or upgrade this DB to get 6.x on it?  Should I just install 5.5 again and start over with the upgrade after that?
Here is my data:

The purpose
I am cross referencing OEM part numbers with my companies part numbers.

In the RAW_OEM_DATA table, any rows without a number in OEMSubNumber are the "latest" numbers. All other numbers are sub numbers that reference the "latest" .

The [OEMItem] in COMPANY DATA is the "latest" OEM number. when a user searches a part number my query searches the OEMSubNumber column and brings back the OEMCurrentPartNumber to match with the [OEMItem] in my companies numbers.

To get the raw OEM data to the format in the FINAL_OEM_DATA is what i'm trying to achieve. But I don't need all 1.6 million records in that table. just the ones that match the [OEMItem] from COMPANY_DATA.

Final Result
Both the RAW_OEM_DATA and COMPANY_DATA tables reside on my web server so employees can access via the secure website. It is a aspx site with MS SQL server. Twice a year i have to run my companies new item numbers through this process and update my tables with the new data.

Couple of notes
Some numbers in RAW_OEM_DATA "piggy back" one another. example
AH208565 subs to AH223030 which subs to AH227807
That means not all [OEMSubNumber] will be the "latest" OEM number.

The description for the "latest" OEM number has to replace all the "USE PN ***" numbers

My process in the past
run quite a few queries to get the OEM raw data to the above desired result
Reset Auto Number field in Microsoft Access


I have a split database with fontend and backend files. There is a table tblinvoice which has a DCID field as a primary key field. This field has relation with another field in a table which is the base table for a sub form. What I want to do is reset the auto number to start from 1 as I have completed the testing and now want to implement the access database. When I did the testing I generated few records which incremented the auto number Field.

Here is what I have already tried:

1) Unlinked the relations between the main form table and subform fields.
2) Remove the field as primary key
3) Create an Append Query which will append the value to 1.

I tried to run this query on the table opening the back end file and also tried to run it on the frontend file.

But its is not working.

Any ideas other then what I have tried above. ? On what file do I need to run the append query - Font End or the back End file ? Can anyone guide me step by step what needs to be done. I am not at all an expert but a starter.

Thank you for your help

I've been tasked with implementing fail-over clustering for our SQL Servers. There's 4 sites total. Site1, Site2, Site3 and Site4. The question is regarding multiple listeners. Can we setup an AlwaysOn configuration so that each site has a listener? The reason being is if Site1 loses Internet connectivity, each site should still be able to operate and function. I need to be certain that this setup will work or will not work. It boils down to making sure that the database servers would remain operational for the other sites and when Site1 comes back online the synchronization process is started again.

I am trying to backup SQL database from old server (SQL 2008) which is installed on windows server 2008R2 to new server (SQL 2014) which is installed on windows server 2012. The database is large (around 200G). I did the backup using SQL management Studio and I got the backup file. However, I tried to restore in the new server using restore database from management studio (SQL 2014) but I got an error.

Any suggestion how to backup and restore database from SQL 2008 to SQL 2014

Hi Experts.

Good morning. I have a question related to actions using javascript and then using a back button on a submit page. I have a javascript function that allows a user to add additional input fields on a web page. So basically a user has one line that they can add an item and then if they need to add additional items, they hit a button and a new input line shows up. Once they do this up to 5 times, these items will be entered into a database with an action page. All of this works as designed. The submit page does some validating, and asks additional questions so I run the forms data to the submit page. But what I noticed is that if the user selects the back button, the added input fields do not show up on the previous page. Is there a way to make those added input forms stay visible when selecting the back button on the page?

I want to insert the following data with SQL into an Access table, but I have problems with the German date format:

 If Not IsNull(txtDateTo) Then

       & "VALUES (" & Me.lstKeys & "," & Me.lstEmployees & ", #" & Format(txtDateFrom, "yyyy/mm/dd") & "#, #" & Format(txtDateTo, "yyyy/mm/dd") & "#)"

        sql = "INSERT INTO tblKeyEmployees (kem_KeyID_FK, kem_EmployeeID_FK, kem_DateFrom) " _
        & "VALUES (" & Me.lstKeys & "," & Me.lstEmployees & ", #" & Format(txtDateFrom, "yyyy/mm/dd") & "#)"
 End If
        Dim dbs As Database
        Set dbs = CurrentDb

        ' and add them to the Customers table.

We had a cryptolocker come through an exchange 2007 server, and I was able to recover all the encrypted stuff from an older backup.

They did not have a recent full system backup, only the database was backed up.

Basicallly I have got everything working, EMC launches and all looks good, can connect via Outlook to the server, but 1 service wont start.

The transport role service - if I try to start it I get "The Microsoft Exchange Transport service on Local Computer started then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not...."

All other exchange services are running no problem.

In the logs I am seeing errors "

Also when I try to open exchange setup I get "Exchange Server is in an inconsistant state, only server recovery mode is available" - Both databases are mounted and working though

Somebody please offer some useful advice, I know rebuilding the whole thing is the way to go, but they really need it working ASAP if…
