Struggling a bit with a query. Here's the details:


ID, StartDate, EndDate, Approval (Bool/bit), Hours (Decimal 5/2), FiscalYear, EMPLID


ID, EmployeeCode, FirstName, LastName, Mgr

I need to display T2.FisrtName, T2.LastName, T2.Mgr, T1.StartDate, T1.EndDate, T1.FiscalYear, And the sum of T1.Hours
WHERE T1.EMPLID = T2.EmployeeCode

So basically I'm looking to display 1 record for each record in T2 while displaying the sum of T1.Hours for each correlating T1.EMPLID/T2.EmployeeCode record(s)

Result might look something like:

How would I do this?

I have a simple database that contains a couple of tables, queries. macros and modules etc.. I'm trying to make it more users friendly, so I have designed a form that loads up and will give the user the option to select an option button then the macro will run and create the report. However what I want the form  to do is to remember the last option button that was selected when the form re-opens.

Hi. I am running the following event procedure which worked in another part of my database but is now returning a value of "-1" to my field in this case "ProjectTitle" which is a text field. My code is below:

Private Sub ProjectTitle_AfterUpdate()

    Me!ProjectTitle = True
    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
    Dim strProjectTitle As String
    strProjectTitle = Me.ProjectTitle
    With Me.RecordsetClone
        .FindFirst "ProjectTitle = " & Chr(34) & strProjectTitle & Chr(34)
        Me.Bookmark = .Bookmark
    End With

End Sub

I have created a large Relationship Diagram in Access 2013 and I do have a Cannon iPF8400 Plotter. I have set the page size to 18 x 24 C, which shows the relationship on one page; however the report will not print, as the plotter errors out. If I go into Report Design View the paper size has been truncated to 12.5 x 19.5 and the Diagram Window has been adjusted to fit to that size.

I have read this thread, Lebans and Allen Brown are no longer available.

So what are my options?
I have exchange 2010 STD with few Databases. I create new database and move all mailbox from one of the older Database to a new one.
Dismounted old database but can't remove it. Error message says there is either a mailbox, or archive or an arbitration on it.
I do see 3 items under arbitration
do I need them? DB is dismounted for a couple of weeks. how to I move or remove such item
please see screenshot attached.
is it related to mailbox indexes?

Is it possible to view an MS-SQL Server last 10 queries on a specific database or table?  and how?  (I'm using MS-SQL Server Express 2016).

I've seen this code on SO but it doesn't show every calls, and not for a long time.  If i run the same query again, some rows of the previous result doesn't show anymore:
SELECT deqs.last_execution_time AS [Time], dest.text AS [Query], dest.*
FROM sys.dm_exec_query_stats AS deqs
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text(deqs.sql_handle) AS dest
WHERE dest.dbid = DB_ID('MyDB')
ORDER BY deqs.last_execution_time DESC

Do i have to set a flag to keep a trace somewhere?

Thanks you
Hi Experts,

I have a page which has a Ajax call to a search function, which is working fine with the search button, which calls it. When I added a function to capture the enter key to trigger the click attribute of the search button, now the the function is firing, pulls back the correct search records for a flash, but then the page completely reloads with the original value of the page. What I'm not understanding is how the default value of the page is loading, since it's not hitting the database call again. Any ideas?

I have one table that I cannot edit through Sql Server Management Studio.  It is being used with Sql Server 2008 R2.  I get Unspecified error MS Visual Database Tools.  Searching the web has not given me any solutions.  Can someone out there help with this?

I have a schema (database) in MSSQL that is called PRODUCTION.  I also have security group setup in Active Directory called DB_USERS.  

I am having a problem with the syntax to grant the security group, (and all of the members of it), the rights of SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, ALTER and DELETE to "all" of the tables inside of this DB.

Can someone provide me with a syntax SQL query command to do that, or alternatively, how I can do that through SSMS?   For some reason I am just not getting the syntax correct.

I tried the following script, and it creates everything, but it errors out on the last line when it comes to the GRANT command.

USE master;

The error I am getting is "unable to access schema PRODUCTION. It does not exist or you do not have permissions."

I am logged in as SA.

        $trip->returning = request('returning');

        return $trip;

Hi! I'm having some trouble with some code I am trying to put together. I am very much a beginner, so this could be a really simple problem. Basically, I have a subform that uses information from the parent form and and another subform to create an email. I am not having any issues generating the email, but what I want to do is create body text using a text field in the subform only if a related field is "true" (it's a yes no field).  Right now I have

  l_Msg.HTMLBody = "<!DOCTYPE html><body style=""font:normal normal normal 11pt/11pt calibri;"">" & _
  "<div>Hi" & " " & Me!PitchCastingFirstName & "!<br><br>" & _
  "I'd like to submit" & " " & UCase((Parent!FirstName) & " " & Nz(Parent!LastName)) & " for the role of " & Nz(Me!PitchRole) & "." & _
  " " & Parent!ClientPitchParagraphTbl_subform.Form!PitchParagraph & _
  "</div></body></html>" _

Open in new window

I want Parent!ClientPitchParagraphTbl_subform.Form!PitchParagraph to only be used if the related field "active" is set to "true".  Do I have to create a string or is there a simple declaration?

Thanks in advance.

I have built and manage a SQL database in Microsoft Azure.  Mining data is loaded to this from several sites around the country.
One of the mines now want to be able to read the data at the end of each day.
I have never done this before so am not sure whether a data push from our side or a data pull from their side is best.
The SQL data includes other mines so we don't want to give them access to all our data.

What is the best way to handle this?
