Need "Database" .vss template files for Visio 5.0c

Hi, everyone:

I need to find some .vss template files for Visio 5.0c.   Specifically, the
Database drawing templates.   (and no, I
cannot upgrade!  It's technically not my computer, I'm borrowing someone
else's while I'm housesitting)

For some weird reason, there are no Database templates in the C:\Program
Files\Visio\Solutions\Database folder.
There are plenty of .vss templates in the other folders: Block Diagram,
Electrical and Electronic, Facilities  Management (etc) but none in

I have tried just copying several in from a friend's Visio, but he has a
later version, probably 6.0, and the program cannot read them.  These have
to be copied from Visio 5.0.

Can anyone help me out here?



PS > I'll say it again, I cannot upgrade the software, even if it's a free
upgrade.  The few files I need to solve this problem are all very small, and
will take only a few seconds to drop in.  They could be sent as email
attachments, no FTP or other bigger fix needed.  Also, to everyone who
responded earlier and suggested that I send in my original Visio 5.0 install
CD for Microsoft's free Visio 2000 install disk, that's not possible as this
isn't my computer, I wouldn't know where to find the install  CD, etc.  (I
reached the owner of the PC by email and he confirmed that this computer
came with Visio pre-installed by the local shop, which is now unfortunately
out of business).

It's kind of depressing - from the types of responses I greceived, I get the
feeling that people would actually rather suggest that a guy with a flat
tire go buy a new car, rather than simply help him replace the tire.  Isn't
anyone a real hacker anymore?

Database problems in Vista
I have been using a database on my XP machine with Access 2007 without problems but when I run it on my Vista machine I cannot make any of the buttons on the switchboard work - I get the message: "The expression On Click you entered as the event property setting produced the following error: Object or classs does not support the set of events!" I can run all the queries, forms etc from the database window. Is there something I need to do to make the switchboard buttons work? See: Option 2 is probably the best general solution. -- A...

Killing the off-line database
Having to kill the off line database to add new records seems a little extreme if you have to do it every day but thank you for the answer. I think they will should have a wireless connection anyway. I am sorry I really don't know how Windows wireless works. In any case what about Active Server pages? Is it secure for only a company intranet. Is there a way to only allow connections to the database via Active Server pages only from desinated IP's? Also, say the .mdb database is on a wireless network can those people still navigate through the network to get to the .mdb database. ...

Database backup whilst the POS is in use
I currently do my daily database backup during the night using a scheduled Windows task. The backup is copied to multiple hard disks on different PCs. I would like to do additional backups during the day whilst the POS is being used. Does RMS SO actually allow this or would I have to briefly shutdown the POS for the backup? I am on V2, SP2. Thanks for your reply. Yes, you can run backups while POS is running. You can even run backups when multiple manager programs are running. SQL server is built to handle many different concurrent connections. As another option, you can also use the c...

zDP_WDC41200SS_1 in DYNAMICS database?
Hello, Does anyone have stored procedure zDP_WDC41200SS_1 in their DYNAMICS database? Here is the background: We have a system that was originally eEnterprise 6.0 on SQL Server 2000, with a lot of customizations and Omni Security. This has been upgraded to GP 7.5 SP 6, all the customizations have been upgraded and Omni Security has been replaced with Advanced Security. On this system, on both 6.0 and 7.5 we are unable to change the Transfer Date in the Customer/Vendor Consolidations screen.

forms not listed in database contents, yet can add data to them
Hi - there are no forms listed when I open up the database in design view. All the tables, queries, and macros are there. When I open up the database to add data, all the forms are there and can be used. The data is stored. So, it seems that the forms are still there, but just cannot be seen in design view. The database, when I open it up in design view, says Access 2000 file object even though I am using Access 2003 - could that be the problem? Thanks! You cannot open an entire database in Design View. Try opening it normally, selecting a form, and choosing Design View from the V...

Form security on secured split database
I secured a database and set groups permissions to certain forms in the database. I then created a switchboard for the database with command boxes for different forms.

Cannot Save to Money Database File
Hello everyone, everytime I try to make a change to my money database file, it tells me that it's in use by another application. I have a feeling that it may be corrupt, however the my backup is about 6 months old. As a result, I don't want to loose what's in it. Two questions: Can I fix the current problem? Maybe upgrading to a new money version (I'm currently using 1999)? Can I load my old copy, and then export the changes from the current database?

database daemon wont go away! #2
So, what does it take to get rid of the database daemon in Office 2004? I have turned off notifications, and deleted the startup item, but every time I start *any* office application, the daemon is restarted _and_ it reappears in the startup items. Isnt the best practice to *ask* the user, rather than just going ahead and making these changes? Very frustrating. The DB Daemon is a required support app for Word & Excel as well as Entourage. Why do you believe you need to get rid of it? Regards |:>) On 5/1/06 04:37, in article, &q...

Pulling data out of a large database
I am trying to build a file to pull information from a larger database and put it into summary file. I would like to be able to use criteria like >15 months and % range <100 to pull information about products from a larger database. A single row of data would have multiple columns. I need to be able to pull the entire row of data, that corresponds to the criteria, to the summary sheet. I hope this makes sense.

Reducing a database
Hello, I want to reduce a database in SQL Server 2000. The problem is that it has the datafiles with a initial size very high. I've done a logical backup, done a command script for generating the database, but I've changed the initial size of database to a size very short in that script. Then, I create the database with that script, but the problem is that when I go to restore the logical backup, it shows again the initial size of datafiles that it had before ... How can I reduce that database? I'm sorry for my bad english, I hope that you can understand me. Thanks b...

Extra databases created in Access 2007

Is it possible to use CRecordSet without connecting to a database?
Under .NET you can use the object without never connecting to a database. Creating columns and inserting data manually. Is it possible to do so with a CRecordSet? If it is important to know, I need to do so because I have a working C++ function that accepts a CRecordSet derived class as a parameter (ugly, I know), I'd like to use the function and send it a RecordSet, just like it used to get before, however, all that without connecting to a database. - I'll fill it myself using another source. Is it possible? Thanks, Vitaly "Vitaly Belman" <>...
