I have had at least six comments to blog postings stating
“msmvps.com rocks! I found a lot of new information on msmvps.com and I liked it a lot. Good job! I will be back.” x 2,
“Good Afternoon!!! msmvps.com is one of the most excellent resourceful websites of its kind. I take advantage of reading it every day. All the best.”
“Good Morning!!! msmvps.com is one of the most outstanding resourceful websites of its kind. I enjoy reading it every day. All the best.”
“Good Afternoon!!! msmvps.com is one of the best informational websites of its kind. I enjoy reading it every day. Keep it that way.”
“Hi!!! msmvps.com is one of the best innovative websites of its kind. I take advantage of reading it every day. All the best.”
Sounds real nice don’t they. Makes a person feel real good about their blog postings. Hmmm, those are rather generic comments aren’t they. What’s in the Website field? Ahhh, www.paydaytown.com. Which in turn leads to Focus Financial Corporation.
Therefore I repeat my subject. paydaytown.com and Focus Financial Corporation of Vancouver are scum
(Added “of Vancouver” to title and to above)
I apologize to Focus Financial Corporation of Virginia. I should’ve done a quick search to see if Focus Financial Corporation was a duplicate name. I will also add that as of this edit they have not contacted me to complain. <smile>
My Analyzer … the ultimate Data Dictionary Tool by Crystal Long, fellow Access MVP
With Crystal’s analyzer in your toolkit, you can get a handle on what you have in Access … structure, relationships, and data. It is, without a doubt, the most important set of programs she has ever written for Access.
The Auto FE Updater website has been had pages added with testimonials, feature list and many minor updates. A big addition was a detailed step by step tutorial on getting started setting up your first configuration file.
The latest update to the utility makes the process of initial user setup much easier. You will now be able to click on a button in the utility and paste a link into an email for a new user of your application. You will need to create a shortcut on the server for this option using the ServerShortCutPath entry.
Other updates include
- using code signing so the "Open File – Security Warning: The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?" message no longer appears.
- a warning message appears if running the utility on a local hard drive. This can be ignored by using a IgnoreLocalExecuteMsg=yes line in the AutoFEUpdarer INI file
- if required you can turn the read only attribute of copied files off by using the Set Read Only attribute = off. This means you can make the FE folder on the server read only for users.
- Added a Licensed To text box to all the forms. See the voluntary licensing page for more details.
Many thanks to Clif McIrvin for all his work in figuring out an excellent solution in getting new users going on the Access app.
