  • 1. Access 95 ODBC problems over terminal services
    We have an Access 95 database that has a set of linked tables via an ODBC to our SQL 2000 SP3 server. When I open up a terminal services session (via Citrix), I'm able to define my ODBC conncetion through Control Panel->Administrative Tools->ODBC Data Sources. I make sure the ODBC connection is ok - it even tests out ok. As soon as I open up Access 95 and attempt to use that particular ODBC connection, I get the following error: Connection failed: SQLState: "01000" SQL Server Error: 10093 [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][TCP/IP Sockets] ConnectionOpn )Initialize()()). Connection failed: SQL State: "08001" SQL Server Error: 11 [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][TCP/IP Sockets]General network error. Check your network documentation. A few things I've tried (and notes): 1. I can ping the SQL server by both name and ip address 2. Both citrix server and SQL Server are on the same subnet. 3. I am logged on as an Administrator thorughout this. 4. Using the same ODBC Data Source through Access 2000 to link tables works perfectly. I'm believing it's something to do with the ODBC drivers/libraries Access 95 is using - perhaps they're not compatible with Terminal Services. Unfortunately, our Access Database has A LOT of VBA code written for Access 95 that cannot be easily upgraded to Access 2000, so we're trying to find a work around. Any ideas out there?

    I was just reading the Access MVP site. One of the things it said you should avoid in Access is using lookup fields. I was wondering what I should be using instead.

1.Using MODI to convert multi-page tif to single page tif

I have thousands of multipage tif images in many subdirectories that I need 
to convert into single page tifs.  I have vba code to do this (written in MS 
Access) that loops thru the directory tree and I can access info about the 
tifs using MODI.  What I'm looking to do now is convert/save the existing 
multiple page tif to a series of single page tifs so they can be imported 
into our image repository.  Anyone know how to do this?  For example, if the 
current multiple page tif is six pages is would create six single page tifs 
(e.g. sample1_page1.tif,sample1_page2.tif,...


2.MODI - tif file stays locked after .Close

I'm using a MODI reference in my VB .Net 2003 project, creating an MODI 
document object instance and using the .Create("myfilename.tif") method to 
load the document with a single image from a tiff file. After OCRing the 
text, I call the close method.
Problem is that MODI doesnt appear to release the file lock until the 
application closes, and i need to reuse the file name.

dim myMODI as MODI.Document
myMODI = New MODI.Document
{ does some work looking at the words in the myMODI.Images(0).Layout.Text 
property }
myMODI = nothing
Kill ("c:\testfile.tif") 

The kill statement fails saying that another program has the file open.
How can i get MODI to let go of the file?

Any help is appreciated.

Or can everybody with a WinXP PC view/print the MODI files?  Or only if they 
have Office 2003?
