  • 1. Linking images through an access database to view in a webpage.
    Is there a way to link images through an access database to view in a webpage (.asp). I would like to create a catalog for use on my website using descriptions of items and thumbnails of images that when clicked would show the larger image. I have been able to do everything I need with text using Access and Frontpage however, I have had no luck with the pictures (.jpg). I currently make individual pages for each item (Too Much Work!!!). Thank you,
  • 2. Newbie question on databases
    In Access 2000 I am using the stadard order entry database. In the orders form I want certain products to show in the drop down box for certain customers and differnet products to show up in the drop down box for other customers. I don't want all of the products to show up for each customer. Do i have to create some sort of relationship in the products table by assigning a customer ID to the products they offer? Any help would be great. AL
  • 3. problem with a linked Excel table
    I have a linked Excel table. When this Excel worksheet is opened I cannot use queries associated with this getting an error message that it's opened. Even if it's closed but some application uses a query with this Excel table and another app tries to open a report with the query, which uses this Excel table, I have the same error message. The error message is as follows: The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file "Excel table.xls". It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission . How could I avoid this situation? Thanks
  • 4. Ctrl-alt-delete to close access
    I have a database on a network drive that once opened will not close(on 2 out 3 machines that run the program). you have to ctrl-alt-delete and end task in order to close it. I have opened up several other databases on each machine and they all close fine this is the only database that has the problem. I have gone into add/remove programs and done a detect and repair on access but the problem still prevails. Does anyone have any idea how to solve this problem? Unfortunately my company has seen fit to eliminated the action of actually removing the program so I can't un-install and re-install the program unless I re-image the entire machine. I am trying to avoid this! Any help thanks Lynn

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.

3.MODI v12 can't open a .tif file that v11 can open without difficulty

When attempting to open a .tif file with MODI 12.0.4518.1014 I get the error

Opening this file on any machine with MODI 11.something works fine.  Is 
there a patch/fix/workaround for this?

We have Office 2003 on a WinXP PC.  I wish to publish/distribute

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