I decided to write a DatePicker replacement for the DateTimePicker control, since Microsoft no longer support it, the various solutions I found on the internet were nowhere near satisfying.

How to re-read database for record with a key passed as an argument?

I have two forms: one a list of Products; and second, an edit page of additional Product information.  I have an event on On Dbl_Click on the List page with the following code:

DoCmd.OpenForm "Product_Edit", acNormal, , , acFormEdit, acDialog, Product_Nbr.Value

While I am able to see the Product_Nbr Argument being passed into the Product_Edit form, I'm not able to have this second form display this particular record.  It only displays the first record in the Product table.  

How to I tell Access to re-read the product table based on the Product_Nbr being passed into it?


Thanks....

Andre.

Thank you for your assistance.  I was able to get it to work by specifying the Filter as:

WhereCondition:="Products.[Product-Nbr] = " & Me.Product_Nbr.Value,

Don't like the current themes in the newest version of Access?   Microsoft is rolling out two new ones.  For details, see:

https://products.office.com/en-US/business/office-365-roadmap?filters=access

and look under "In Development".  And if your looking for all the latest that is happening with Access, use the the red "Filters" button, select "Access", and then click apply.

For those of you wondering what might be up and coming in Office, one way to stay on top of that is the office 365 road map page:  https://products.office.com/en-us/business/office-365-roadmap?filters=#abc

and checking the "In Development" section.  For those interested in Microsoft Access, you will find a new feature listed there:

"Access: New charts for modern data visualization
Introducing new charts to help you visualize data managed in Access in an appealing and modern way. Add any of the new eleven chart types, including a combo chart, to a form/report to visualize your data and make informed decisions."

Sounds like we are going to get a major new feature!   Of course, if your part of the Office Insider program, you'll be one of first to be able to check it out!

Microsoft has added a page to their Office Templates which provides templates for five types of Access databases (Asset Tracking, Contacts, Students, Event Management, and Task Management).  I have not had a chance to review these databases, but this is the first move we have seen in quite some time to add anything "Access" to Office marketing, and is good news.

Please download these templates and encourage others to do so.  If we generate enough traffic, maybe we will be able to get additional templates on the website.

AI and machine learning humanize app development and marketing

Machine learning is being used as a marketing tool as it can access user data and gather additional insights on the users’ behavior and engagement preferences.
While artificial intelligence (AI) has been around for a while, scientists have recently made massive breakthroughs in the field of machine learning, a subfield of AI, as noted by NPR.

Adding awesome vector clipart to LibreOffice

I was recently poking around with LibreOffice and figured out how easy it is to add great vector clip art to ones LibreOffice gallery collection.  My experience with both LibreOffice and the site that provides so many awesome clip art images in vector and many other formats was so pleasant, I figured I would post this tutorial to give then both some love.

Step one in the tutorial is where we download the vector images we want to add to our gallery. This is where flaticon.com comes in.  They have over six hundred thousand icons - all of which you can download in multiple image formats including .png, .svg, .eps and .psd.  Many of the icons are available with their free account but you can get full access to a richer set of icons with their premium plans. Plans range from about $7.50 to $9.99 per month at the time of this writing. If you like their work, consider getting one of their premium plans.  

Gallery1.PNG  Gallery2.PNG











Once you are on flaticon.com, if you are a free user look for one of the icon packs with the [S] in the top left corner - this means the pack is available for free. Icon packs are saved as zip files by default, so you will need to unzip the folder to a familiar location on you hard drive such as Photos folder if you are using Windows - as I am in this tutorial.

With the folder unzipped, you are now ready to fire up LibreOffice. I am using LibreOffice Version: 5.3.4.2 (x64).

I have an access form, "frmCompetition" with a subform, "sfrmDogBrace." This is a database for field trials for bird dogs.   I would like to filter the contents of the subform based on selections I make in 3 separate comboboxes in the main form.  Any advice?  I've tried makeing the underlying query of the subform reference the contents of the 3 comboboxes as criteria.  No luck. Is there some vba code I could use?  My comboboxes are cboyear, cboday, and cbo brace.

In exchange 2007, wondering if anyone knows how to limit the view of specific public fodders to certain people or security groups.

I know how to limit access (ie author, contributor, editor, etc) but a client has asked that only certain people be able to see certain public folders to reduce the overall amount of viewable public folders (to reduce "clutter" if you will) for everyone viewing the public folder structure. ....

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.

EQIFAX DATA BREACH.

The Equifax data breach is one of the deadliest cyberattacks in the modern times not only in terms of affected people but also due to the intensity of accessed personal data. Equifax reported that between mid-May and June 2017, their system was hacked and the personal information of 173 million customers was exposed. Below we highlight some incites about this breach and then take a look at exactly how this was accomplished at the bottom.

Accessed information

According to Equifax, the hackers were able to access customer’s names, Social Security Number, customer’s date of birth, card numbers, addresses and driver’s license numbers.

Why this breach is one of the deadliest attacks

The Yahoo data breach in 2016 had 1 billion customers affected where only the passwords and phone numbers were accessed. But in the case of Equifax, sensitive data was accessed which means that:

Criminals can use the Social Security number to other credit accounts using a customer’s names.
Hackers can also maneuver their way and shop online using the credit card details obtained.
The hackers can sell the data to other criminals which makes the effect very grave.
An accessed customer’s data is not immune to future’s fraud, extortion and blackmail. The accessed information can haunt a customer forever.
How to find out if your information was exposed

Equifax has established a “Potential Impact” tab on its website (www.equifaxsecurity2017.com) that helps …

This was literally copied and pasted from hackingloops.

Let's go to a "Security" site from a company that hid the fact that they had a massive data breach that affected (more or less) everyone with a credit score in the US. Let's plug in our SSN anyway (fun fact, it doesn't matter if you are on a secure system or using encryption if the destination isn't secure).

This is my school project / assignment scenario - I have to draw a Logical Network Design...NEED HELP

The rollout of the wireless network has been suspended for now, but the stock analysis tool is being implemented. It is to be called My Stock Analysis Tool (MSAT). MSAT is going to use a three-tier client-server architecture. The tiers will be a web browser at the client end, a separate web server tier, and the MSAT server that performs application logic and all the data storage and access logic. In this way, there is no issue with installing/supporting a software client on end-user computers. Both customers and DRUB staff will use MSAT through a web-based interface, although staff may see extra options. Apart from accessing MSAT, staff also use Microsoft spreadsheet and word processing software on their computers (Windows XP PCs and laptops) for preparing reports, with work-in-progress files stored on staff computers.

Cyber News Rundown: Edition 11/10/17

UK-Based Cryptocurrency Hit By Cyberattack

Prior to the official launch of Electroneum, a UK-based cryptocurrency that uses smartphones for its mining process, was targeted by a DDoS attack that shut down both the website and the app for several days. The attack effectively blocked all users from accessing their accounts, as the entire network was forced offline, to ensure the safety of investors’ funds.

Canadian University Held for Ransom

In the past week, officials have been working with affected students to secure their personal information after hackers breached the university’s systems and gained access to student records. The university has since taken its email system offline, as the hackers were spreading the leaked information throughout the email lists. Along with the data circulation, the hackers also demanded the university pay a large ransom of roughly 23,000 USD within 48 hours, though officials are still uncertain when the breach itself occurred.

WaterMiner Cryptocurrency Mod for GTA 5

As more cryptocurrency miners are embedded in software, one Russian hacker has gone a step further by exploiting a mod for the popular game Grand Theft Auto 5. The exploit silently uses a computer’s power to mine digital currency and, with the help of a modified version of the XMRig miner, can hide itself if it suspects monitoring software is active.
