Database creation

Question: Database creation

I would like to create a membership database from scratch. I have looked on the web, but nearly everthing seems to revolve around Web databases. I need this database to be stand alone. I am a complete novice at this, if anyone knows a good tutorial that will help me create this database that will not cost me a arm and a leg, and will take me through it step by step in easily understood stages I would be greatly appreciative.

I am an experienced programmer but am new to VB. To start, I am trying to create a simple database program. (My ultimate goal is writing a comprehensive database program.)

I have created the database and bound the fields to a form.

But what I want to be able to do is add a field to the database and then also bind that new field to a textbox on the form.

The new field appears on the list in the Server Explorer window (on the left) but not in the data sources window (on the right.) The data sources windows has a "refresh" option but that does not help.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am creating a database to track customer, vendor, and investment information. I want my queries to include the following:
By Vendor
By Customer
By Mature/Surren Date
By Investment type

Later down the road...I want to create a form to input new customers. I want the form to have a pull-down menu for both the vendor and the investment fields.

I was thinking I should have a Vendor Table, Customer Table, and Investment Table. However, Vendors and the investments they offer vary from vendor to vendor -- A vendor typically has between 1-40 different investment options.
 

Answer:Access Database Creation

In that case you will want (1) your vendor table, with their names and details and an ID-key field, (2) the vendor-investment table, in which each vendor's ID key from table (1) is used with the various investment options offered, (3) a customer table, with their names and an ID-key field, and (4) a customer-investment table, in which the customer's ID key is cross-referenced to the selected vendor investment record(s) from table (2).

Hope that makes sense. You might want to check this link for a more thorough introduction.

I am playing around with Access to create a database for keeping track of some various collections I have. I have created the tables that I need and now I am trying to group tables together for the front end. I'm not exactly sure how to do this or if I am looking in the right place or what to call what I want to do. For instance I have Different colors as my tables, Green, Blue, Black etc. Now I want to create another table that would be above that for a drop down menu called Colors that would reference those tables and pull up individual data.

Colors
Blue
Black
Green

I think knowing how to make that work would get me started in the right direction. I will be editing the final tables as those are the only ones that contain any useful data.

Should I even use Access for this or go a different route all together?

I have a small business and clients come in based on a category that is assigned to them, usually they are placed into one or more groups which are then randomly selected.

It was suggested to me that an access database might be a good thing for me to better organize my clients.

An example of what I have and what I need.

I have groups 1 through group 10 (not really, but it works).

Clients are assigned to one or multiple groups.

When the assigned group is selected (randomly) they are allowed services depending.

I would like to easily be able to input the clients and assign them their groups. When I put a group number(s) on a day, I would like all people assigned that group number(s) to be shown on a main page where it show what they are getting that day (or multiples if 2 or more groups they are assigned to come up) and they can be checked off once they have shown up.

I am pretty knowledgeable about computer hardware, decent with programming and language and have never used access before so any and all help is appreciated!!

So I just recently put up a website and I want a form so users can tell me what should be on the site.

I created the form in dreamweaver, set up a MySQL database in phpMyAdmin with the following sql code:


CREATE TABLE `user_info` (
`name` VARCHAR( 25 ) NOT NULL ,
`user text` VARCHAR( 500 ) NOT NULL
);


In dreamweaver, I go and connect the submit button to my database, type in all my info (username, password, etc..) and it comes up "An unidentified error has occurred."

My webhost does support php. Something I noticed when I went to save it is that it saved it as a php file.

How can i get this error to go away?

And if its not too much to ask, how can I set up my form so that when a person clicks submit it will send it to my email?

I can't figure out how to add a column to the right of all my data. I insert column, and it inserts a column LEFT of the column my cursor is in (the very last column). And I haven't figured out how to manipulate the columns to move them around like I can in Excel (which is still a hit or miss thing for me - anyone have the tip on how to do that, too?)

Answer:Adding database columns to the RIGHT of the last database column

For any curious, I did find a way... You have to open design view and add it in one of the blanks beneath your last entry.

Not quite as easy as just right-click > insert, but it works.

I can open the external db and it's form but cannot figure how to give it focus. I'm trying to create a master form that will call various databases that each have a form. Seems simple, open the master menu, click on a button that then opens the called db and the associated form. Do my business exit the db and am back at the master form. I would be okay to just close the master db, all it has it the main menu or leave it open. Doesn't matter which I just want to open the called db and form and have its focus.

Hello forum!

Let me preface this by saying that my SQL/PHP experience is rather limited. I've essentially just done things like adding hacks and mods to existing free script sets such as phpBB3, Coppermine, etc. I've been reading some online tutorials on both, and have recently set up an Ubuntu box to play around on, so I'm picking up a bit more here and there.

I have a project in mind, and I'd like some feedback on the best, most secure way, to go about this. I run a game modification forum for a single player RPG. An associate of mine recently created a small program can accept data from the game and insert them into an SQLite database.

We want to make a site that displays a player's game stats. So for example, they will first register a username with the site, and then request a new character ID. They will put this ID into the game, and it will be used to identify this character in the database. On the personal PC, at certain intervals, the character data will be sent to the local database. Anybody on the web site can go in and view the current stats of any character. It will be categorized by user, then characters.

The thing I need to figure out is how to best get the info from that local database into our online one. Ideally it would be nice if it could be updated at near-real time (the game data will probably only be written once every 5 minutes or so.) But if necessary, we will make it so that the player has to manually u... Read more

I need to query a table in a database that I need to write to to determine what records I need to pull from the database I need to read from.
Example(This dosnt work):

DECLARE

DateVar Date;

BEGIN

DateVar := Select MAX(Invoice_Date) from write_To_Table;

COPY FROM read_database TO write_database INSERT-
destination_table (column_name, column_name...) -
USING select * from read_From_Table where invoice_Date > DateVar;

END;

Any other suggestions
 

Answer:COPY FROM database TO database USING

Hi,

What you need to do is:
- Connect to write_database.
Query the DateVar for your WHERE condition.

- Connect to read_database.
Query all the records what that you want to insert to write_database.
Then store the records to "ARRAY"

- Connect to write_database.
Insert your "ARRAY" to destination_table

I hope this helps.

Question: DVD Creation

I'm sure several dozen threads have banged this topic into submission before, but my head is spinning from all the reading I've done lately... So if someone could just point me in the right direction at 'least, heh.

Mainly, I'm looking for a good tool to create DVD-Rs out of existing video files on my computer (in a way that will allow them to play on stand-alone players), most of the guides and such that I tend to find usually detail the opposite process... That is, how to rip/encode DVDs and other stuff for portable players, HTPCs, etc. From what I understand tools like Handbrake/AutoGK simply perform this conversion...

So what exactly do I need to go in the opposite direction? Do I need to use an authoring program like TMPGEnc or will something like SUPER suffice for a quick burn? To be honest I haven't really dived in and tried using any of these programs yet, most I've done is make backup copies of my own DVDs (or my cousin's toddler's movies) using DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink.

I burned a DVD of "Motivational Posters" and some music. It burned correctly and it loads in everything.

The problem is that my DVD player sucks. It only plays the pictures and I can't find any way to play the music at all.

So my question is:

Is there a way I can set up a DVD menu type thing to open up the music folder by folder?

EDIT:

I meant on the same disk. It's a DVD+R. Or am I going to have to make a new disk? and If I were to make a new disk what free software could I use for MP3's? Burner XP is what I used, and Xilisoft's DVD Creator only allows me to work with Videos.

Answer:DvD Creation

The only option for a DVD to play music if it does not support mp3's, is to encode the music into a dvd Movie with either a blank video track or even some of the poster images you have used. Most DVD players do support file browsing for mp3 so try messing around with the menus when you have the disc inserted.

Hope this helps!

I have some files that I'd like to burn onto a DVD... how do I do that? I currently only have Nero, and if it does convert the files into DVD format, I haven't figured it out. Any help? Thanks...
 

Answer:AVI or MPG DVD creation

Burning them as MPG or AVI should be as simple as adding them to a data DVD project in Nero, and burning.

However, if you want to create a DVD that is playable in (non DivX) DVD players, then you will need to convert the files into DVD format first. I've always liked DivXToDVD for this purpose. This will convert an AVI or MPEG video into an ISO file. You can then burn this ISO file as a data DVD project, and it will translate into the necessary file structure (ie. VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS at the disc's root) as well as the correct filetypes (*.VOB).

However, DivXtoDVD has been discontinued, and the SHAREWARE version ConvertXToDVD has replaced it. I've never used this, so I can't comment on what kind of job it does.

Another freeware alternative is AVI2DVD, but I've found that this program often messes up the sync between video and audio.

All these programs work the same... put in an AVI/MPEG, spit out an ISO, then burn the ISO, and you should have a working disc. Let us know if you have any problems.

Hey everyone,

I am trying to look into what software or program would be a good option for a work project that I am trying to help out with.
The goal is to send training DVD's to our customers so that they do not have to come to us or us go to them for technical training on our products. We do not have any videos created for this just yet, but I am thinking that the DVD's will be a mix of video/audio/powerpoint content. Want to be able to skip chapters and have the customer be able to pick sections that they want to view at a time.
Have any of you used DVD creation software like this in the past and what was your experience with it?
Have any of you used Adobe Encore? Would that work for what I am trying to accomplish?

Thanks in advance!

Answer:DVD creation software

I have no experience with Encore, but if I was in a dire situation I would probably take your videos and edit the slideshows into a single video via a program like Vegas Pro. Then I would use CreateXtoDVD to convert it all to DVD format and add chapters in the appropriate places while also making a clean looking menu.

I'm sure there are better ways of doing this, but if I had to do what you're doing right now it's how I would tackle it.

He is not a techno-idiot; indeed, he's a SAS programmer. But he wants to get away with learning as little web technology as possible. His web pages can be fairly simple, he is not trying to be fancy or to impress anyone. He's willing to pay some money but strongly prefers spending lots of it. But the need to interface with a database may put his needs out of range of freebees such as nvu or arachnophilia. Any ideas for products can help him with not only the html, css, and perhaps javascript he'll need but also the php, asp, or whatever for backend dealings with the database?

Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Website creation

Last I knew, vi was the name of a text editor on unix systems... (although I prefer joe myself). Is vi the name of something else as well?

Why not investigate what tools are provided depending on where he hosts his site? Maybe there's an ISP out there that will provide all the tools he needs.

Question: Error Box creation

Does anyone know where I can pick up a blank error box from within the windows files. Someone is creating a workbook and needs to get hold of a blank Windows error box to be able to type text into.The Laptop is a W98SE, not able to connect to the internet and miles from here so getting one off the internet is out of the question. Just thought there may be a blank template that windows uses and then writes to. Better still, is there a way of producing error messages within windows that would give the required text and such or is that in the programmers area of expertise?Craig

Answer:Error Box creation

I'm not quite sure what you're after. To display an error message in Excel (I presume?) you would use some VBA code likeMsgBox prompt:="Temp outside range 1 to 100", _Title:="Data Validation Failure", Buttons:=vbExclamationIf you are trying to get user input from a box you would use something likeSub InputBoxExample()Dim cellValue As VariantreShowInputBox:cellValue = Application.InputBox("Enter value to go in A3")If cellValue = False ThenBeepExit Sub ElseIf cellValue = "" ThenBeepGoTo reShowInputBoxElse ActiveSheet.Range("A3").Value = cellValue End IfEnd Sub

I am looking for some people who are good at programming. I need some people who can work with me to make a multi engine antivirus, i will not be able to help code (i havent learned how to program yet) but i will be able to provide lots of of information such as viruses to add to the av list of what to quarantine. I will also be able to provide money to go to the support of the antivirus creation but i wont be able to for awhile because i have to get a place to live and a new job. This antivirus will be a pretty good antivirus because it will also be made into a iso which provides a better chance of removing viruses. If you are into antiviruses and things of that nature then you would have nothing to loose and alot to gain from doing this. We could make the antivirus free or cheap or similar to other antivirus prices. If for every person working on this was to add a dollar to the cost then at 1 million downloads we could be millionaires(im not doing this for the money but money will give people more reason to help). If you have ever heard of herdprotect(antimalware) then you have an idea of what type of antivirus im thinking about except it will be a available as a rescue disk. Tell me if your interested at helping at all.

Answer:Antivirus creation.

I'm not a programmer but your idea sounds awesome in fact I had the exact same idea in my head for about two years now although my concept would be based off open source software like Linux and ClamAV but I don't have the resources to make it happen. If you can make this into a donation based project kind of open alternative to HitMan Pro/FixMEStick I think allot people would like that. I mean obviously the extra AV/antimalware engines wouldn't be open source but the base could be based off ClamAV. I hope your idea succeeds.

I have an excel spreadsheet that I am using with several VLOOKUP values referencing customer survey questions. There are several ticket numbers one one sheet that each have a series of questions asked to the customer, along with a rating of 1-5. I have a list validation with a dropdown that points to a ticket #, and based on that ticket number, the appropriate questions are displayed for that question. I also have a tech assigned to each of the tickets, so when a ticket # is chosen from the dropdown, the appropriate tech's name is also displayed.

What I am trying to do is have a checkbox, Yes/No, or True/False cell where the tech can toggle the value for each ticket. I know I can create a "third" column for the Yes/No value with another VLOOKUP to tie in to each ticket, but how can I get the value to be displayed based upon what the tech is choosing in the same cell?

ie. I want cell A1 to be a vlookup for the value in B1 (ticket # chosen from dropdown) a range of C1:C20 (list of ticket #'s), but I also want the tech to be able to choose the value.

I know this can be done in Access with a simple checkbox. Can the same be done in Excel?

Hello,

I will be buying a new computer soon and the main purpose for it will be for media creation (such as video editing, digital audio editing etc). And what I hear all the time is that Macs are way better for that kind of stuff. And that is one thing that is making me consider getting a mac. But the thing is....nobody ever says why the mac is better. They just say that it is. So could someone please fill me in here. How do Windows 7 machines compare with macs considering their media creation capabilities?
Thanks

Answer:PCs for media creation

The only thing that matters is what software you use. The OS isn't nearly as important as the software you use for the actual editing. I remember my brother telling me that Apple has some free video editing program that is better than the original Windows Movie Maker. But, now you have Windows Live Movie Maker you can use, which isn't great by any means, but its better than the original one on XP in my opinion.

Personally, I like Audacity, a free audio editing program, which has never let me down.

I have a link that says: "download csv file" which links into a .csv file. inside the csv file there is a reference to an ASP via include, so that when the link is clicked on it processes the query passed to it and populates the csv file.. on the fly.

Answer:PDF Thumbnail Creation

I use Adobe Acrobat, which is hardly free, or sometimes GhostScript and The GIMP on Linux.If you are a handy coder and want to play, you could try this rather nice .NET solution: click hereThere are also ways of using PHP, but there isn't enough space in this forum to go through the necessary steps, code and the required PDF server support. You could say that it's a bit involved and, frankly, the return on the time investment is hardly worth it unless you have hundreds or even thousands of PDF files.Off the top of my head I'm taking a guess that Adobe Photoshop could batch process this. Photoshop can open PDF files. You get to select which page of a given file you wantt o view and you can edit it in Photoshop. Note that this creates enormous files by comparison to Acrobat, but it can be done and Photoshop has a very nice batch editor so you could feasibly create your batch process and run it on a directory of PDF files.A friend of mine (yes I do have one!) suggested the Pdf995 Suite to me a while ago but I've not had the time as yet to dip my toe: click hereAside from that, nothing springs readily to mind that would be in any way simple.

Answer:invoice creation

Hello there,

To change the general info on your invoice, click on the "customize" button found directly below the invoice No. in the upper right of the actual invoice. That will open up the customization sheet. In there you can change any of the general things.
After you're done making the changes, click the lock and save button on that sheet to save the changes for the next time you use the invoice.
To close it and return to the invoice itself, click on the sheet tab at the top of the task bar at the bottom of your screen. It will say "invoice"

To change the date, just double click on the date on the invoice sheet and it was become active, thus letting you change it. When you are done just hit enter key on your key board to close it.
Let me know if you need any more help.

Answer:web site creation

My advice would be to go to some good bookstores and look first hand at what there is on offer, they will all have diferent styles of displaying and explaining their contents.By looking at them you can decide which suites you best and if they cover exactly what you need.Good luck with your venture and give my regards to the rest of the "goons" (sorry).........

Question: Newsgroup Creation

Anyone know how to get a new newsgroup created?

Answer:Newsgroup Creation

In the "Big 8" hierarchies (comp, humanities, misc, news, rec, sci, soc, and talk), you submit a formal proposal (a Request for Discussion, or RFD) to the moderator of news.announce.newgroups, who then posts it to that group, to news.groups, and to other newsgroups that have an interest in the proposal. The proposal is then discussed for at least three weeks in news.groups. You may need to revise and re-submit the RFD for another round of discussion (or two, or three...).see click here for further information

Question: Demo CD creation

Hi,

I have created a Web Based Database Application using Microssoft SQL Server, ASP, HTML.

Now I want to know how to Create a Demo CD version of the same application with full functionality. What are the steps involved in the same. I believe MSDE can be used as Database Server and can also be freely distributable. I will need advice on usage of MSDE too.

Thanks in Advance.

Hi All, I want to tidy up the PC and was going to do a reinstall of XP on one partition and all the applications on another, the aim being that I can then back up each drive to an image which will be small enough for a CD. Alternately so I can then split the file over a number of Cd's once I have the 'supposed ideal' set up. Since I upgraded from W2k I thought it would also help to clear things up and improve system performance by reducing junk files and such. Would anyone be able to say how large XP and say, AV program, IE6, drivers and all 'required' files take up as an image? I would do as I normally do and place the applications on another partition. Any help as always much appreciated. P

One of the first things that I noticed about Windows 8 is that it now has native support for viewing PDF files, like the Mac OS. However, the functionality seems extremely limited. For many years now I have found programs like Adobe Acrobat and Nitro PDF indispensable at home and at work. Adobe seems to have a PDF Reader app for Win 8 but it is getting very poor reviews. Am I right in assuming that Win 8 has no native functionality for generating PDF files? Also, the range of PDF apps in the Windows 8 app store seems very limited. Is it best for now to stick with the old standbys? E.g., Foxit, Adobe, Nitro, CutePDF, etc.?

Answer:PDF viewing and creation

First thing after installing win 8, installed (Foxit Reader) & associated file type

Hi all.
I'm interested in creating a DVD (or series of DVD's) containing multimedia pub quizes. Different rounds of questions on various subjects, some written, picture, music and video rounds that can be played on any DVD player preferably but on a laptop at least. It would be good to be able to (for example) play the intro to a track and ask them to name it then play the same thing again (from the same screen) and have it carry on further into the track come answer time.
Does anyone know of any frontend software that would be good for this? Something written specifically for the task would obviously be best but anything that could do the job and has good online support and tutorials comes a close second.
Thanks in advance

I wish to create a .bat file which would restart a particular process, "ObjectDock.exe". It's location is "C:\Program Files\Stardock\ObjectDock\ObjectDock.exe". I know this is a two step process, first to terminate ObjectDock.exe, then launch it. I've used taskkill but to no avail thus far. Could anyone help?

Question: Short cut creation

Pavillon dv9500z CTO Notebook PC, 4GB ram, Win7 OS
This likely goes elsewhere, but I couldn't figure out where. So...
I'm unable to get my 'desktop' to produce the screen which allows me to create a shortcut. In this case, a link to a website.

Directions would be appreciated. Thanks.
 

Answer:Short cut creation

The usual method for creating a shortcut on the Desktop is to Right Click an empty area of the desktop,
select New and then Shortcut.
This will produce a dialog where you enter the target, in this case, the internet address that you want.

This example uses the address for this forum thread:
