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

This p...is SQL 2000 architecture different SQL Server 2005 / 2008 architecture?
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?

Hi. I have Windows 7 installed on a primary 1/3 partition of a 300Gb SATA
hard drive. The other 2/3 is are logical partitions of 100Gb each. Needless
to say, I am running out of room on drive C and also want to have my OS on
my biggest and fastest hard drive that I have. In the system is another 1Tb
SATA drive broken into 4 250Gb primary partitions for storage. I just put
in another 1Tb drive last night, broke it into 4 primary partitions of
250Gb each, and gave it drive letters of L, M, N, & O. Because of this and
my mounted shares, I am running out of drive letters and cann...Moving customizations from SQL 2k to SQL 2k5 CRM
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'm missing some piece of the puzzle. I'm using 'for xml' type queries from

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
immediately update the underlying table (m...Windows 2008 NLB

Why do you need that ? Haven't seen yet an implementation where NLB nodes

If supported the answer will depend on what you want to run on your NLB

Rather than repeat them in each form, I'm trying to store and

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

Other than launching by double-clicking an existing workbook file, you
can't. That's the way the program is designed to work because there is
absolutely nothing that can be done - including changing Preferences
settings - unless a file is open. Even if you can't see it, much of what the
program needs in order to operate is actually stored in a workbook file.

I have a very vertical product developed 100% in M/S Access. I developed it
myself in 1993 in the initial release of Access and been with it ever since.
It is currently very stable and running in Access 2003. My big question is
how or even *if* we should move it to SQL. My customers are getting bigger
all the time with more users. Typically our customers run one or two
workstations generally never more than 5. Performance, however, is starting
to slow with database sizes passing 500 meg. We also have a LOT of code

After applying Exchange 2003 SP1 to one of our gateway servers, I
observe 24 hours later that there are no messages in BadMail. Not
usually something I'd complain about, but it is unusual.
Prior to applying the service pack, I cleaned up this directory. There
were almost half million entries there, testimony to the fact that we
ordinarily get a thousand BadMail entries a day typically. The
directory was so large that I had to use command line del *.* to
accomplish the task. The directory itself appears to be fine and I can
create files there without problem.

It's possible through the use of VBA and ADO, but not simply using the data

It depends on what edition of GP you are going to run. If you are going to

installing on a non-server OS.
