Remote connect to a system in the field w/o user in field

Question: Remote connect to a system in the field w/o user in field

I am setting up kiosks that once in the field will be locked down and not accessible to anyone in the field nor do we want anyone else accessing them. However, I need the ability to remote into the system if there is an issue.

Is there anyway to set up the machine so that I can do this without someone being in the field at the machine?

I have a table titled time_slips used to track the amount of time an attorney spends with a member. In the time_slips table there is a field titled reference_id which is a combo box pulling it's displayed information from another table titled references. Also in the time_slips table is a field named details which is native to this table.

My question is, can I have the details field auto-populate "no charge" when a certain reference id is selected (i.e. 300)?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I use due dates on my Outlook tasks. When I customize my Tasks list (in the Calendar view) to group by due date, I just get too many groupings (one for each due date!). I would like to know if I can create a custom field called 'Due Month' and/or 'Due Week', extracted from the 'Due Date', so I can view my tasks by what is due during a given week or month. If the answer is yes, any suggestions on the technique I would use would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

I'm doing a quick-and-(very)dirty design as a proof of concept. During this process I fat-fingered the word Description, as Ddescription. No problem, I know what it means, right. But it annoyed me, so I changed the underlying table (where the error occurred), deleted the control from the form, and added the (now correctly spelled) control.

However, every time I try and ruin the form it wants a value for the now non-existent field Ddescription. I simpy click-through, and the form runs fine. When I look at the available fields in the form's View query's Field List, it still shows Ddescription, and i seems to think it's coming from the underlying table.

Any ideas on how I can remove this phantom field? I can't find anything called "The_View_for_form_FooBar" anywhere, but I know it must exist somewhere...

I support a software program that has a proprietary menu item when you right-click a calculated field. It has been this way for 10-15years and has worked in WinXP through Win10 with never an issue. This past week I had 3 different customers tell me that when they right-click one of these fields to access what is normally the Cut/Copy/Paste/ menu that also includes our menu item, they are now getting the Windows default cut/copy/paste/Right to Left Reading order/Show Unicode control characters/ etc menu. The only thing I can think of that they all have in common besides these are all Window 10 64bit pc's, is that they all have one update to Adobe Acrobat (17.012.20098).
I was able to resolve for a moment on two of these workstations by having the user go into Language/Advanced settings and actually selected "English (Unites States) from the "Override for Windows display language" even though that settings is implied by the "recommended". But after the pc was turned off over night and back to it the next day, the problem is back and that setting is still selected. All language and regional settings on all the pc's are defaulted to English/Unites States. I do not know what other avenue to go in. Could something hae been switched on or off in Windows (by this Adobe update perhaps?) that would make the context text menu switch to Windows text default right-click menu?

Any help is appreciated!

I attached my database what i would like to do is create a form when an end user will enter a corresponding user ID from that I wish to populate textbox fields with Agent Name, Supervisor, Location, Dept *all seperate text boxes of course* I have attached the database if someone could help me do this it would be great. Let me know if you need any further details to help get me through this.
 

Answer:update field A in form based on entry in field b

Welcome to the forum, before answering you question can I suggest some improvements to your database.
Currently you do not have any "Key", "Indexed" fields in your tables and there are no relationships set up between the tables.
Also do you really need the Archive Table?
The data looks like it has been exported in from a spreadsheet, relational databases work quite differently to spreadsheets, so to make the most of their advantages you need to correctly relate your Tables.
Your UserID Roster also has some disconnect between the Field Names and the actual data in them, particularly the Name and Type feilds.
In the Supervisor Table the Birthdate does not seem to have Translated correctly.

I am working on a database that stores genus, species, and variety I want to sort the data with genus, then species, then variety.

Now the tricky part. Sometimes there is no species. When this is the case, I want the database to sort that record off of variety.

I have though of a way to do this, but need help with the code.

If I make a species2 field, I could create an expression that would look at the species field. If the species field is empty, it could copy the data from variety. If it is not empty, then copy the data in the species field.

Once the species2 field has the updated data, I could then do a sort

genus, species2, variety

The report would have genus, species and variety showing and species2 would be checked off to not show in the report.

I am using Microsoft Access 2000.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.
 

Answer:Access - if field is blank, copy field A, if not copy field B

You should not actually need another field to do this, just another column in your report's Query. Something like this as a Field header :-

dummySpecies: iif(isnull([species]), [genus], [species])

this should provide a column with the species in if it there and the genus if it is not, which you can use in place of your actual species field in the report for sorting.

I know the Include Field will include part of the text from an Include File if it is in a bookmark. The format is {IncludeText "File Path" Bookmark}. I have 2 files: Source and Target.

Source is a form template. I included a Text Form Field and gave it the bookmark AA. I also included other text in a "normal" bookmark, BB.

In Target I have 2 fields: {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" AA} and {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" BB}. The text from BB shows up, but the one for AA is blank.

If I go into Source and look under Bookmarks, both AA and BB are there.

BTW, I have tried it with the Source form both "Protected" and "Unprotected" and it didn't make any difference.

Any idea why this is happening, and more importantly, any idea on how to make this work? If not, it seems like a real bug in Word 2003 as they are both definitely considered to be bookmarks.

Thank you,

Hello,

I'm having an issue that's preventing me from logging into my Lenovo Thinkpad T410 with Windows 10. Previously you could swipe your finger on the fingerprint scanner to both turn the computer on, and login. Since the Windows 10 upgrade, that was no longer supported, so the power button would be pressed, which would take you to the Windows login screen, at which point a finger swipe would handle the Windows login, and bring you to the desktop.

Yesterday, when trying to start up, at the Login screen, the fingerprint scan did nothing. On the rare occasion over the years when there'd be an issue with the fingreprint scanner, pressing a key would bring up the ability to enter the Windows password. However, when I tried to do so yesterday, it would just slightly magnify the background picture, now revealing the Internet, Accessability and Power buttons in the lower right, but nothing else. There were no Users listed in the middle, and no place to enter a password.

I've searched for hours for solutions, and have not come across many similar situations, which is unusual. I saw suggestions to hold Shift, then Restart in order to bring up the ability to boot in Safe Mode, but that doesn't work (even holding Shift throughout), it only brings you back to the login screen.

Previuosly posted in the wrong forum.
I am very wary of wireless connections, however I now have a need to use a computer to access the internet while out walking, shopping etc.

So, I have a laptop and it has wireless connectivity, specifically 'Integrated 802.11b/g wireless and optional 3G module'.
What I need to know is
- if I am in the middle of a field will 802.11 guranatee me a connection or do I need to spash out on some 3G stuff?
- is either connection inherently secure
- how does it all work, is it really free internet connectivity?
- A Laptop is expensive and really too big for the job. I am thinking of buying an ASUS minibook 8g to take on my travels, it's solid state so should be more robust. Anyone got one and would you recommend it for this purpose
- Is there a better portable internet browser out there?

Answer:How can I connect to the internet in the middle of a field

You will not be able to access the internet unless you are near a wireless hot spot. This could be a local coffee shop, library, hotel, or a home in the area with unprotected wifi.

If you truly want to be able to access the net anywhere, you need to purchase a wireless card from a cellphone company. This involves a monthly fee, however you will be able to access the net anywhere you can get cellphone reception.

Hi, have had this problem for a while now and any help would be greatly appreciated. Essentially I cannot install anything, as it requires User Account Control verification, but the password field for the admin pass does not show up, so the only option each time is to click 'No' and cancel the installation. I assume this is because there is no admin password set.

I tried for a long while previously, I have tried to enter using safe mode and try and disable UAC, yet when doing so the UAC actually pops up in sade mode without the pass field again. I have also tried using Offline NT Registor and Password Editor to create a new pass for the admin, yet no luck as the admin afterwards doesn't require a pass nor does the pass field in the UAC show.

I would really like to find a way to solve this, and am willing to do whatever anyone recommends. Thanks

Answer:Cannot install anything as no password field in User Account Control

Hello Archaic, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If the administrator account doesn't have a password set, then you should be able to just log into the administrator account and create a password for it as usual. Without a password, you would just leave the password field blank and press enter.

I have a unique problem. I am trying to use the INCLUDEPICTURE field code. The document I'm using is linked to a very sophisticated database software program and I have received instructions on merging data from this database INTO the INCLUDEPICTURE field to create the filename for the photo files. An example is typed below:

{INCLUDEPICTURE "G:\\START\\IMAGES\\PHOTOS\\{MERGEFIELD "PROVIDER_LAST_NAME"}_{MERGEFIELD "PROVIDER_FIRST_NAME"}.GIF"}

In the above example, the photo filenames are all matched up to the fields referenced in the formula (last_first.gif). These are the correct field codes, and the double slashes are important, I have been told.

My problem is that as soon as I save the document containing the above field, the underscores all change to "%20" and the field doesn't work!! No one at my software vendor's help desk can help me with this problem. Does anyone know anything about preventing this??

so like most if not all of you here im pretty good with computers. i was looking at IT jobs and system admin seemed to be most in line with what I do now for fun...deciding what i want, buying parts, putting them together, testing them, and making sure everything is working right, etc.(but of course of a larger scale). Am I right in coming to this conclusion? I don't know any programming or even scripting for that matter, so i figured systems engineer field is not right direction, as i think you have to know programming. thanks for any advice/clarification.
 

Answer:Is network/system admin the IT field I should go into?

System administration generally involves maintaining a Windows domain. Managing systems, ensuring patching and virus updates are maintained, moving accounts around. Occasionally you could be required to upgrade memory, install a server, or replace a hard drive. It could differ depending on the OS involved but one thing is for sure: you won't be building custom boxes.

Network administration involves maintaining the network infrastructure of routers and switches. Usually this is Cisco, but not necessarily. This involves port security (ensuring only authorized systems connect to your network), maintaining your companies connection to the world, maintenance (IOS upgrades, part replacements). This can involve installing or designing networks.

Most employers now want you to do both. They don't want to hire a network administrator and a system administrator. They want to hire one person with both certifications and pay half the price.

Question: BCC field

I have looked in the knowledge base and cannot find an answer to this one.In sending to a large group in the BCC field, if one of the recipients email addresses cannot be found, does this mean that none of the other recipients will receive it (the whole email not sent)?I say this because this looks as though this has just happened to me. Immediately I hit the send button an error message came up saying that it could not be sent because one particular address could not be found. There was nothing in my sent box to say that anything had been sent. I hit the send button again but exactly the same message came up (same rejected address).I am asking this because the group is made up of many people I have contacted over the past years - some of whom may probably now have new addresses. I was hoping that only the now non-existent email addresses would not be delivered (bounce back) but the other ones would be delivered.It looks as though I may have to send to each separately. Any help appreciated.Terry

"In sending to a large group in the BCC field, if one of the recipients email addresses cannot be found, does this mean that none of the other recipients will receive it (the whole email not sent)?"

Question: Memo field

Good day all,

I'm having some issues getting a combobox to work with a memo field.

Master repository (table) = my data warehouse
Main (form) = drives data to Master Repository
Verbiage (table) = document types list in combobox on form Main. One of the 3 fields retrieved by the combobox, [Body], is a Memo field containing formatted wording to be used to generate a printed letter.

Issue:
The combobox will return the correct field/data upon selection but it truncates the information in that field. I read that there might be some sorting and like field issues but I haven't been able to fix or work around the issue yet. Suggestions are greatly appreciated

Perhaps there might be other ways to achieve what it is that I would like to do. What I am trying to do is create the ability to generate a formatted letter hub of sorts. These are one-off letters that are produced at the time of data entry that will use information from the current record and from several tables.

Thanks
 

Answer:Memo field

How many Characters are you trying to display in the Combo from the memo field?
There is a 255 character limit for the columns of Combjo box fields.
You can however display those characters but then use the whole of the table field's data by using VBA code to retrieve the data either using dlookup or a recordset.
Or if the user needs to see all the data you can use an unbound memo field to display the same data in full.

Now I have the radeon 9250 256ddr and guess what ? the game will not run. It plays the intro video fine, which is awesome by the way then up pops the vpu error.

Now my dilemma is. I DO NOT HAVE an agp port available, this computer does not have an agp slot, I do however have the pci slots. I have been told that there are NO PCI video cards that battlefield 2 will support. SO as you can see I am need of assistance on this. I have already e-mailed EA games which makes Battle field 2 where I have NOT received a reply as of yet. Some how I have the feeling they are going to tell me that my video card is not supported. Hmm let's see, it said ATI Radeon 8500 or greater, isn't 9250 greater than the 8500 ? I guess someone counts backwards.

So is there anyone that can shed some light on this for me such as, 1) do they make pci video cards that are supported by battlefield2 and 2) is there anyway for me to get this game to run with my existing video card ?

thanks guys.

A field may have data such as 'This is a test'.

If I select this field within a unix for loop the result of this query is

How can I get it so that the result stays on one line.

Hi.

My comp: Intel(R) Pentium Dual core CPU [email protected] 2.7Ghz
2 X 1Tb Hdriive
4Gb Corsair RAM

I am running FL Studio 9 and a lot of VST(instrument) plugins and the time is coming where it is finding it hard to handle it all.

I am thinking of buying a new PC(32bit - because some VST's need that, don't think 64 bit would work, not sure).

I looked at this on eBay:
AMD BULLDOZER 3.3 FX-6100 SIX CORE CPU 8GB DDR3 1TB PC COMPUTER TOWER SYSTEM | eBay

and wondered if this is gonna help? With the extra RAM and processing power is it enough to deal with FL application plus all that goes with is - plugins.

Or has anyone else bought a PC of late for that purpose for about the same price and could recommend me one?

Any advice would be great as it's been years since i bought one, cheers, Ste.

Answer:Probably a bit left field?

I recently built a new PC for Sonar X2. Look at the "My System Specs" for my system specs. The Intel CPU's outperform the AMD's, according to two commercial DAW PC builders comments on the Sonar forum.

I have 64 bit OS and Sonar X2 Producer 64 bit. Sonar has a bitbridge to allow using 32 bit VST's. Don't know if FL studio has that. However, I also have ProTools MP9 which is a 32 bit DAW and everything works under Windows 7 64 bit.

First of all, the system above ^ I built myself, with little trouble at all, assembled nicely, working fine for the first few weeks. It's been a number of months now and a few confusing things have occured.

When I first got the PC, I installed the UT3 demo to see how it handled. On full settings I didn't encounter one single trip in framerate, as with all the other games on it. When I bought the full game today, I installed it fine, ran it and it literally wouldn't display it on anything other than 800x600. whereas before it ran perfectly on 1280x1024. Note that I am running a dual screen system. One at 1280x1024, the slightly worse quality one at 768x1024. When attempting to run the game at that resolution is simply freezes, black screen and takes a good few minutes to minimise/maximise.

Answer:Problems in the field...

Did you try installing the latest patch for the game? There's been a few releases already, there's a good chance that the latest patch will fix it. Other than that, be sure you have the absolute latest drivers, sometimes when a new game comes out, companies release drivers that day, because they're optimized for certain game fixes.

Oh, and what's wrong with electrical engineers?

instances of field name usage.

I have written a large database for the school I used to work for. In the main table there is a field named "Active" which is text with yes or no choices.

Is there a way to find in what objects this field is being used in the database?

For the life of me I can't remember why I put this field in or if its even used now.

This database has had many versions over the years.

I have searched many of the queries but can not find where this field is used.

If there isn't a way I plan to backup, remove field from table and test all the features of the program to see which crashes. However I'm hoping there might be a quicker way.

This was one of the first DB I wrote and didn't pay much attention to mapping or keeping notes back then.

I am at a crossroad and do not know which direction to go. I got my Associate's degree in IT a few years ago and never really did any more than that. I am in the process right now of trying to set up a small network in my house, to get some real world experience, but education wise I am not sure which direction to go. If I get my Bachelor's degree it would have to be from some where online because I already work full-time and I am looking at getting a part-time job in the evening as well plus I have two small children. The other route I have been looking at is going to the local community college next to my house for some online certification programs they offer such as Cisco or a general networking certification. My company is willing to reimburse me up to $3000 a year towards my education plus I qualify for Pell grants as well which would make paying for a degree easier but I don't know really which would be best at this time.

I have done a little of everything on my own, and I am now looking to get focused in an area. I would really like to work in our NOC but I don't which education form would benefit me the most.
 

Answer:Need advice from those in the field...

If you're just looking for a job in the NOC as a network technician or whatnot, Network+ --> CCNA --> (maybe) CCNP certification may be the way to go. Will your company cover certification costs?

If you have two kids, a full time job, a Bachelor's will probably take way more than two years to finish (that's assuming you can transfer all your credits from the Associate's Degree). Doing a good certification path and getting some experience along the way would probably put you in a better position in the short run. The certification path has more of a focus on teaching you how to perform tasks than teaching you how to think in a certain mindset - and vice-versa for the bachelor's degree.

It's kind of a hard question to answer, but in my opinion if you're focusing on a certain type of IT job, school might not be the answer.

One of my agencies changed their name and I want to know what is the best way to change the name in the whole database, including queries and reports
 

Answer:change field name

Ouch...that depends. If your queries have links based on their name, you will have to make the change in a table and fix all those broken links. But if they (and reports) just show the name in relationship to a code, you can change their name in the main agency table (or wherever that info is kept) and they should all be updated automatically.

I've encountered one of the strangest things I've ever seen in Access. Wrote a query that supports a mail-merge letter. One of the fields in the query is an expression named "Expires". The formula is Month([DateJoined]) & "-" & Day([DateJoined]) & "-" & Year(Date())+1. What it produces (example) is 4-11-2003... on MY computer. But on (an old) computer in a client's office where it needs to be used, the field is always truncated at 6 characters; i.e., the above date shows only as "4-11-2". If the day is between 1 and 9, it would show "4-9-20".

I cannot find a setting or configuration for Access or Windows that controls the length of text expressions, and no other expressions behave this way. It is unaffected by changes in the Windows Regional Settings.

Why is this one field truncating only on one computer? Where's the setting to keep it from doing this?

I have table1, which contains the field with the calculation.
Table2, contains one of the fields containing the data to be calculated.
Table3, contains the other field with data to be calculated.

So I want a field in table1 to be the value in the field in table2 multiplied by the value in the field in table3.

Does anyone know how to do this? I'm guessing I need to enter some kind of special equation in the field in table 1?

Hope that makes sense!

Answer:Laptop for field work?

Try to get an old toughbook, it's the only one which will stand up.

Touchpad's are also durable, you can find them for a decent price used as well, how much are you looking to spend?

Hello,

I have developt a database and created a form for so i be able to enter data. I also created a form so i be able to search for the data using (ID, Category and a search field).

I have already used the wizard to create the ID and the Category but how do i create the search field so when i type my text, ID or category in it would show up with the record.

Thanks,
Yizi
 

Answer:MS Access Search Field

Yizi, you can do it with a simple "Unbound" Text Box which you can add to the form using the Toolbox Wizard.
However, you should only use that for searching for text, if you want to search for people and other things already in the database it is better to use a Combo box to list them for the user as it saves typing errors messing up the search.

Question: Forms field format

Is there a way to make a form field that will verify that the correct information is typed in. For instance I have a form field that asks for a phone number, including the area code and also a field that asks for an email address. I want to make sure that the correct format is typed in and if nothing is typed in those fields then the page should be refreshed with a message saying they missed a field. Am I making any sense here? Thanks.

I'm using Dreamweaver.

I am working as an IT engineer, and one of the administrative assistants has a challenge. She often sends emails on behalf of some of the management team, using the delegates option in outlook. Also we use Office's mail merge function to send emails to multiple customers at once. We are running Windows XP Pro and using Microsoft Office 2003.

We need to be able to send a Mail Merge on behalf of someone else. I have checked Office's help files and cannot find a way. Does anyone have any idea how to do this or is there a program I can purchase?

Any help would be appreciated

I need to pull an value (#) from a field (ID) in a subform and pass it into another form. Subform is in Datasheet view it would work best if I could select a record and click a button to open the form and pass the selected record ID # in to the new form. Or I could use on double click and do it as well depending on which is easier.
 

Answer:Issue with pulling a value from a field

I think a Button is best as the wizard creates the code for you, but the problem is the datasheet view, I don't think it will show a button (one off the resons I never use them.
I always use Continuous Forms Mode instead as that gives you full control.

Answer:Computer Networking Field

- What is the outlook for this type of work?Click to expand...

Its not a high paying as it was a few years ago but there are still some primo jobs out there.

- Will there always be a need for someone who has knowledge in networking?Click to expand...

Someone has to do it! (This means yes)

- Do you believe it is a highly competitive field?Click to expand...

Very, the best thing to do is build up a reputation and let your name speak for itself.

- How would someone excel in networking?Click to expand...

Read all the white papers and study on all new technogloies. As well learn as much as you can about as many different types of hardware so you can give people good pros and cons.

- What qualifications are needed?Click to expand...

None are NEEDED unless they are required by your employeer. There are plenty of networking certifications out there from Cicso to Microsoft to Linux +to Network +.

- What are upsides/downsides?Click to expand...

Upsides is doing something you love. Downsides is 1) Alot of weekend and after hours work (usually businesses DON"T like to be down during the day while your replacing a router. 2) Being on call (almost all companies I know require their network people to be on call).

Basically I always tell people do it because its what you want to be doing do go the route because you may think its easy money.
