  • 1. Error opening Access databases

  • 2. Problems writing a linked query in SQL
    Hello Newsgroup, I am doing some archive database and therefore got one table indexing every folder and one table storing which rack belongs to which department, eg: table folders : +-----------+------+-------+ | folder_id | rack | date | +===========+======+=======+ | 123456789 | 325 | 05/02 | +-----------+------+-------+ | 987654321 | 158 | 02/07 | +-----------+------+-------+ | 987485221 | 666 | 01/05 | +-----------+------+-------+ table racks: +----+------+------------+ | id | rack | department | +====+======+============+ | 1 | 158 | FKA/PKG | +----+------+------------+ | 2 | 555 | KOV/GDA | +----+------+------------+ | 3 | 666 | FKA/PKG | +----+------+------------+ | 4 | 123 | ORG/RET | +----+------+------------+ Now I have to select all the folders which have for example an equal date belonging to a certain department, meaning: - I have to find the racks belonging to eg "FKA/PGK" (158, 666) - Then I'll got to find every folder belonging to the racks 666 and 158 (987485221, 987654321) - Then I've got to find those which belong to a certain condition (eg. date <02/2001) Sure I could do that in three queries, but somehow I've got the feeling that SQL is powerfull enough to do this in one query. But how? thanks in advance Thorben Grosser
  • 3. Top values
    I have a table with 156 records in it. How do I extract n (integer number) records to make a statistics Top value in a query wouldn't help much because user can change number of records in a form
  • 4. John Viescas' Membership database
    Total Access Newbie here. Holy Guacamole, I just received "Building Access Applications" in the mail today, and I'm playing with the Membership database for my club/association. First roadblock: How do you add fields to a "linked" table? I want to add a couple of fields to tblMembers, but its giving me grief. When I try to open it in Design view, it says "Table 'tblMembers' is a linked table with some properties that can't be modified. Do you want to open it anyway?" So I say, sure. I open it and add my fields. Then when I try to save it, it says "Membership Tracking can't save property changes for linked tables. Do you want to continue anyway?" I say, sure... save it, open it back up, and rats, my fields aren't there. What do I need to do? James

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 
"the selected file is not a valid microsoft office document imaging file". 
Opening this file on any machine with MODI 11.something works fine.  Is 
there a patch/fix/workaround for this?

Which PC's can view MODI (Microsoft Office Document Imaging) files (extension 

We have Office 2003 on a WinXP PC.  I wish to publish/distribute 
non-editable views, and might print PDF files (spin wheels eliminating page

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