I have a table called 'users', each row has a unique ID (autonumber) -- userid
I have another table which is called 'firm', and a field (int) called:  contactnumberstart

I need to update firm.contactnumberstart  and make it =  to the latest (or highest) userid + 1
This way I know which is the next ID.

I only need to update it once, the system will take care of updating that number whenever a new user id added.

It should be something like:

update firm
set contactnumberstart   =   MAX(users.userid) + 1

Well, that is the idea.

For some reason, my ask-a-nurse image on mobile is not centered. It's the nurse image at the top of the page.

The buttons under it are centered on mobile, but the nurse picture isn't. Could you tell me how to center it and keep everything else the same on all devices?

I wrote a web-app utilizing my Bluehost account.

The customer now wants the ability to store images (receipts, etc) "in the cloud".

Suggestions?  Bluehost support was pretty vague on whether this was allowed and it's storage limits.

I wish to add a webpage or two that will allow the user to select the picture and then upload it.
Hi Experts,

Please see the screen shot below, this is the error we get, when we try to access the website from the network.
www.abc.com works fine
www.abc.com/hi works fine
www.abc.com/bye gives this error

next day
www.abc.com works fine
www.abc.com/hi gives this error
www.abc.com/bye works fine

however off the network
Off the network it works completely fine.

Contacted the vendor, they have suggested that they do not have any issues with their websites.

I am wondering if this is to do with network filtering?

Browser in USE is IE.
I need a better understanding of the relationship between SAML and API integrations.

Our company has two major needs :

(1) single sign-on (user 'Bob' will login into 'ACME.com' and then click a link to automatically enter our site without login again)
(2) transfer of information - one of our tools will send an XML string to company X, they will run a program and return an XML string to us with additional information.   Currently this is done through a web service (API).   Not sure how to better secure this? Does SAML come into play here?

I see how SAML will be used for (1) the single sign-on.   But is SAML used for, or needed for an API when passing XML strings?   We currently use SOAP or just XML.  

Please let me understand how SAML, SOAP and web services all play together.
If I were to approach a new company with the idea of creating a web service to communicate, would they ask me to use SAML?
Hello Experts, I would like to set up remote access to our database as remote.xyz.com, have it point to our internal Sesame Database Server at 192.168.X.X, but only allow traffic through port 20030, and only with the db.exe. sesame db server has its own web server and capable to act as web server and has sample builtin html webpage as well, so how can i achieve this ?

I have Visual Studio 2017 Community also installed.
Hi, so I've got an Ionic 3 app which has a native camera plugin and onesignal plugin as well for notifications.

The native camera plugin works fine in Ionic View or DevApp, and onesignal works when build it to an APK and run it natively on my Android phone.

However, when I use an emulator to run it, even on IOS, it comes up with cordova_not_available. And even the cameras don't work. i run the command

ionic cordova run android or ionic cordova run ios

Emulator shows up but the issue is that cordova doesn't seem to be compiled in. Thus causing cordova plugins to fail.

What can possible be the issue? I've removed all the plugins and android/ios platform, re-installed an still the same.

It's kind of difficult to develop the OneSignal notification when I can't run it with the emulator.

Anyone who has come across this, please advice.

What are some possible reasons that a grid would lose its paging header? I know that's a very broad question. The details that I can give are that the pager template is there when the page loads, but upon a new data bind that is successful the pager template is gone. It does re-appear if I do a sort on any of the columns but that's not how it is supposed to work. Its as if it loses its understanding that it needs to show the pager template after a new datasource has been bound to it? I'm looking for some suggestions of things / properties that I can check to see what would cause this?

Hello Experts

I’m currently using a booking application for Joomla by a company called Koparent www.koparent.com. It is designed for users who want to lease any kind of service.

Unfortunately, for some reason the ability to convert currency from one currency to another has been lost - it can’t be done even on there demo site. I have tried reaching out to them for them to fix it, but I’m not getting any response. Therefore, can someone please let me know of any other booking application for Joomla?

I would very much appreciate any recommendations

On premises SharePoint 2013 - using 2010 workflows.
I have an alert on a special view of the Workflow History - which will alert me when the description contains "Failed" or "Error" - etc.  So I get an an email when any workflow encounters an error or is canceled.  That works fine.  (This doesn't work for SP 2013 workflows by the way).  I can even issue a log message from the workflow and I'll get a notification using this approach.
However, occasionally (not consistently) some of my workflows generate "Failed on start (retrying)" and just hang.  I must manually cancel the workflow so that it can run again on a modification.  The same workflow will not retrigger and rerun on modification when it's in this state.  If I re-run the workflow, it runs fine.  So it's a mystery why I'm getting failed on start.  I get this every few hundred executions of the workflow and on different records.  
Unfortunately, in this case - no workflow history is created - hence I don't get an alert.
So anyone know how to get a notification when a workflow 'fails on start'?  
You can't set an alert on a view which is filtered by a workflow status column so that approach evidently won't work.
Any ideas?
It's very important I know of failed workflows on this application.

I don't have the option of using SP 2013 workflows - which I understand are less flexible for this kind of alerting anyway.

We would like to know if it is possible to modify our website which has been developed in ASP so that it becomes responsive, but especially by keeping the headers and footers in a fixed position.

Here is the original version of our website (not responsive) : http://www.ex0-sys.ch/

We have a test version of our site that is responsive, but we do not master the technique to maintain our original design.

Here the test version being modified (responsive) :

What technologies should we use because it seems to be a major problem for everyone?

Thank you in advance for your answers.
