Calling Dex Procedures from SQL
Is there any way to call dex procs from SQL or VB code?
There is an undocumented and unsupported method of calling Dex code from
VBA. However, I know of no method of calling Dexterity from SQL.
Please email me if you want an example, just remove the online. from the

I have a continuous form with an unbound text box that has a DSum function as
it's control source. It is used to display the sum of a field in a query. It
works fine except that the last line of my form (the one for a new record)
displays #Error in this text box. My DSum function is;
= DSum("SumOfFootprint", "qryBoxTotals", "BinID = " & [BinID])
I've tried assigning it to the text box control source through code;
Me.txtFootPrintSum.ControlSource = DSum("SumOfFootprint", "Query1", "BinID =
" & Me![BinID])

I posted two questions onto the system:

but I cannot see them or find them with a search!!! The system sent me an
e-mail saying that they have been responded to, but if I cannot see them it
is not of much use.
Do I have a setting wrong?

Hi I have a book "inside SQL Server 2000" by Kalen Delaney, which I
have been told is a good book. I am going backwards... reading about
the sql server architecture in chapter 3 of the book.
As I'm reading... I was wondering is it different SQL Server 2000 vs
SQL Server 2005/2008? Also
where can I find a book/or link that can give me more details about
the internals on architecture?

This may be a non-issue but I wanted to check to see if anyone has done this
and ran into issues.
I have the XML customization files from our previous install of CRM 3.0 with
SQL 2k database. I now want to import and publish these same customizations
to CRM 3.0 on SQL 2k5.
Has anyone done this or can point me to documentation that tells about the
success or issues for doing this?

I have BASIC programming skills but have never had the opportunity to

take the information from two other cells and multiply them together.

I'm missing some piece of the puzzle. I'm using 'for xml' type queries from
SQL2K - and now trying to change the front-end from ADO to C#, I can't quite
figure it out..
It seems that I could use an XmlReader.. and somehow use that instead of a
DataReader.. but that didn't work.. I tried using a DataReader and get the
byte array - but that wasn't right.
SQL returns formatted XML, I need to load that XML into an XmlDocument
somehow without ANY molestation of that dom. Any ideas? Examples? Missing

Access 2007 on Vista
I am using a form to establish the variables for a report before it is
created. One field on the underlying table is a multivalue field, and the
form includes a multi-select combo box control. After selections are made and
the OK button on the multi-select combo drop down is clicked, focus moves to
the next control. I have discovered though, that the underlying table does
not update immediately, but does so correctly when I close the form. This
sequence does not deliver the proper report data, so I need a way to

I feel like an idiot for even having to ask but I haven't been able to
find a definitive answer anywhere. When building a new Exchange Server,
do you need both an O/S (Windows Server 2003) and Exchange Server
(Standard or Enterprise) Edition on the server or does the Exchange
Server 2003 serve as the O/S?
Let the comments begin....
You need Windows Server 2003 or 2000. Now if you purchase SBS 2003 then
Exchange comes as part of the SBS Suite of applications but all applications
must be run from the SBS Server.

Microsoft Certified ...Refer to SQL statements globally
I have two large SQL statements that I need to use across several
forms, reports, etc.
Rather than repeat them in each form, I'm trying to store and
reference them globally.
For example, I'd like to store strSQL1 and strSQL2 in a global module,
so I can use either like this in a form:
Me!lstResults.RowSource = strSQL1
Me.Report.RecordSource = strSQL2
Would I just store the SQL statements in a global module like:

Not sure how familiar you are with ODBC; but if you are getting #N/A as a
