Reading SQL Server Extended Properties
I have an Access 2003 front-end (mdb/mde) connected to a SQL Server 2000
back-end. SQL Server 2000 offers the ability to add extended properties
(such as a caption, for example) to objects (tables, columns, etc.) using a
stored procedure called sp_AddExtendedProperty, along with the ability to
retrieve the values of these extended properties via a function named
With fn_ListExtendedProperty, four columns can be returned/selected using a
Select statement: objtype, objname, name and value. The first three columns
returned are of datatype sysname, whil...Question -Problem

I dont know if i need to ask this question here or in the Access section. I

It's legal for a document to have multiple views into it's data, but when
CMultiDocTemplate is created, it is only passed one runtime view class. How
are multiple views handled in the document template context? Should all
views of your document be derived from the class passed to
CMultiDocTemplate? This is confusing me because MDI AppWizard did the work
of setting up a document view class for me, but now I'm just using a child

of my document, and these views have nothing to do with CMyProjectView that...Pivot Table Question #5

Good question but not for this community. You need to post your question in a
Windows community. But, I think he's wrong and you should call Microsoft
directly to ask them. You can find their phone number by going to

I have a table that has 20 date fields for each record. I need to select any

If your table uses multiple date fields, the first thing you'll want to
consider is coming up with a new table!
In a spreadsheet, adding 20 date fields may be the only way to handle a

I will try to keep this succinct. I am running Great Plains 9 with SQL 2005
on separate servers. Recently I brought up a new SQL server(called sql02) to
replace the old SQL server(called sql01). After installing SQL 2005 on the
new server and restoring all the databases I renamed the new server(sql02) to
the name of the old Server(sql01). Great Plains worked happily after that.

I have posted a cemetery survey on Excell spreadsheet. When I try to sort
the birth dates or death dates in ascending or descending order the range of
1900 dates will sort but the 1800 dates fall after the 1900 and will not
sort. Why? Is this inherit with this program?
The WinXL default dates start with 31 December 1899, so earlier "dates"
are interpreted as Text.
You can use helper columns and text functions (LEFT(),RIGHT(),MID()) to
put the Year, Month and Day in separate columns, then sort.
