I would like your help on a macro on excel

2) when it finds a cell in B column that has a number equal or greater than the cell in I1 (6 in this case), to copy the deg of that cell

How to read Child tags under parent tag with name space in C#?
<ns:tag1></ns tag1>

How to read child 1 tag?
I am able to till ns:tag2 but unable to read any further tag.
var child = parentElement.Descendants(ns + "tags").First();
This provides list of child tags, but unable to further read it.
Tried a few things like:
and child.Element("child1") (with all possible sub functions)
Even tried to reload the xml from tag2 in XElement again but that threw invalid xml exception.
but all are throwing null pointer exceptions.
hi there,

Currently I'm trying to create, sign & broadcast bitcoin transaction using btcsuite. For start, I've already had testnet3 address & its associated privatekey for testing. However, hunting through the post and articles like below:-

The solution proposed above its not complete, for first one, it only covers until signing (i knew the author claimed its not broadcastable unless you provide the utxo which i did if i'm right) but when tried to braodcast it failed with message

"Error validating transaction: Transaction be9b294695bfb201a5cff32af074a4bf72b073e3c9dad1969111165bf118a622 orphaned, missing reference f0c0d3b3eecf911ede996a74ceadc9366068791450c9e6bacee9ae202f3690d1."

I have no idea what's going on and I suspect its script is incompatible.

So, the bottom line is I just want a workable example in bitcoin testnet3 that shows "from 1 address transfer some bitcoin to other address" by showing the process of creating raw transaction, sign it with private key, turn it to raw transaction in hex format & broadcast it using something like (BTC testnet)

currently my code is as follow:-

package main
import (

web applications vs. custom desktop software.  These are the two scenarios that I am posed with in designing an attendance/registration system for our organization.  Are there disadvantages to web application vs. a desktop software.  I imagine there is more power in the coding aspect of most programs compared to web application development.  I know its an abstract question, but I wanted to see what the experts have to say on this subject.   Is there really no difference?  The application I will need to design will register individuals, take their daily attendance, and then output statistics.  Also any ideas on how to best develop such a program may be appreciate.
Hello Community,

I'm absolutely new on programming and I want to learn Delphi as my main and solid first choice.
Searching on Google I did not find any interesting resource about how can I start programming on Delphi (or not just with updated content). I want to know about learning sites, learning video courses, ebooks and all of them completely easy to follow and readable.

Please, I hope that someone can help me with my request.
Also, Are there any free version of Delphi to start programming with?. And the result of the created apps with this IDE can be used for business?.

We have a window authenticated exe designed using Window Form Application(C#).  
We are getting below exception during the API calling when a Firewall(Window or Anti-Virus) is stopping/Blocking the internet connectivity of our EXE .

System.Net.WebException: Unable to connect to the remote server --->
System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions

We need to add our application to the Firewall (windows & Antivirus) config/reputed List so that it won't block our exe for any connection.

Please suggest how to handle this.

Hi All,

I am completely new to python. I would like to know how to find out what modules are available and what i can do with those modules

for example -

import os
import win32serviceutil

how would i find out the functions, etc that are available in the win32serviceutil?

hope this makes sense
I am learning C++. It is going really well. It is making other stuff I have done in programming really make sense. I was interested in getting started programming with C++ visually. I want to make a program that runs on Windows. I did not know where to get started. There is not a lot of info on the topic. I found a helpful video on YouTube that showed how to get set up. It leaves me off with code like so:
#include "MyForm.h"

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Windows::Forms;

int main(array<String^>^ args) {
	Lotto1::MyForm form;
	return 0;

Open in new window

I do not know how to continue from here. How would I add some code that performs something like writing a string like calculating with overloaded functions! If anybody has any examples I would greatly apreciate seeing them.
I want to make a program that calculates values for a sphere or a cylinder with an overloaded function like so:
#include <iostream>
#include "func.h"
using namespace std;

int main()
	double Pi = 3.14790;
	cout << "Enter a radius: ";
	double radius = 0;
	cin >> radius;
	cout << "The sphere = " << calcRound(Pi, radius) << endl;

	cout << "Do you want to calculate the a cylinder? (yes = y/no = n) ";
	char answer1 = 'n';
	cin >> answer1;

	if (answer1 == 'y')
		cout << "Enter a height:

I am an Access programmer. I posted a question to convert access application to web based.  Now I am planning to move to web development. I came to know there is no way you can convert or move directly to web based programs.
I appreciate if you show some guidelines to start a web program (as if I am new to development).
Appreciate your help.
Mac OSX question

I have a large library of digital media. Most of it is kept "offline" but the library software I use (Plex) uses media files to build the library and so I need to use placeholder files.

Using 30 second "this file is archived" videos I can easily catalog offline movies in Plex. I "rsync" the directory structure without files and then "do cp" a placeholder into each movie directory and rename using the parent folder name.

For TV shows this isn't practical as there can be hundreds of episodes per show. I would like to know if there is a way to duplicate the folder/file structure of a tv show, with many episodes under a single folder, using the same placeholder file.

To reiterate, the ultimate goal is to take a placeholder file eg. "placeholder720p.mkv" and use this file to recreate the source directory with the same filenames. So in the end I will have a folder that looks identical to the source, but consists of this placeholder file duplicated over and over. Also, there are non-alphanumeric characters and spaces in the filenames to be duplicated.

Hi there,
If I'm searching for phrase "A B" and I define the values , for example, of A as (Red, blue, green, yellow, brown,) and B as (Jacket, hat, blouse, car), then the number of phrases I'm looking for is 20 and the number of words is 40.
Red Jacket ,Red hat, Red Blouse, Red Car
Blue Jacket etcc….  
Is there a way/tool/ search engine that would allow me to search for all the 20 phrases/40 words by just specifying A:  and B (total 9 words) (Red, blue, green, yellow, brown)?
