    The B.O.O.K.

    The B.O.O.K. - A Low-Tech Breakthrough Announcing the new Built-in Orderly Organised Knowledge device (B.O.O.K.). It's a revolutionary breakthrough in technology: no wires, no electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected or switched on. It's so easy to use, even a child can operate it. Just lift its cover. Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere - even sitting in an armchair by the fire - yet it is powerful enough to hold as much information as a CD-ROM disk. Here's how it works: Each B.O.O.K. is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets of paper, each capable of holding thousands of bits of information. These pages are locked in with a custom-fit device called a "binder" that keeps the sheets in their correct sequence. By using both sides of each sheet, manufacturers are able to cut costs in half. Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information directly into your brain. A flick of the finger takes you to the next sheet. The B.O.O.K. may be taken up at any time and used by merely opening it. The browse feature allows you to move instantly to any sheet, and move forward of backwards as you wish. Most come with an index feature, which pinpoints the exact location of any selected information for instant retrieval. An optical "B.O.O.K.-mark" accessory allows you to open the B.O.O.K. to the exact place you left it in a previous session - even if the book has been closed. B.O.O.K.-marks fit universal design standards; thus a single BOOK-mark can be used in B.O.O.K.s by various manufacturers. Portable, durable and affordable, the B.O.O.K. is the entertainment wave of the future, and many new titles are expected soon, due to the surge in popularity of its programming tool, the Portable Erasable-Nib Cryptic Intercommunication Language Stylus (referred to by the acronym P.E.N.C.I.L.S. to those in the trade.)
  2. Teacher: Johnny, define "miracle", please. Johnny: There are no miracles, sir! Teacher: Imagine you climb a 100 meters tall tower, you fall on your head and you survive. How do you call it then? Johnny: A coincidence, sir. teacher: Well then, and if you climb the same tower for the second time and you fall on your head again and you survive? Johnyy: I would call it an extraordinary coincidence, sir. Teacher (a bit frustrated): But if you climb it again, and you fall, and you survive for the third time, then how would you call this? Johnny: A habit, sir!
  3. Once upon a time there was a shepherd. He was standing by the side of the road, looking after his flock of sheep. Suddenly, a brand new Cherokee Jeep appeared and stopped near the shepherd. A young man wearing a Hugo Boss shirt, Yves St. Laurent trousers and Nike trainers got out and said to the shepherd: ‘If I can guess how many sheep you have in your flock, will you give me one of them?’ The shepherd looked at the man, looked at his sheep – who were eating grass peacefully – and said: ‘Yes, OK then.’ The young man parked his car and took out his laptop computer and a GSM phone. Then he logged on to a NASA website and scrutinised the local area with the help of a GPS (global positioning system). Next, he created a database and 60 Excel tables full of statistics. After that, using a hi-tech micro-printer, he printed a 150-page report. Finally, he turned to the shepherd and said: ‘You have 1,586 sheep in your flock.’ The shepherd replied: ‘You’re absolutely right, I do have 1,586 sheep in my flock. Now you can take your sheep.’ The young man took a sheep and put it in the back of his Jeep. When he had done this, the shepherd said: ‘If I can guess your profession, will you give me my sheep back?’ ‘Yes,’ said the young man. ‘You are a business consultant,’ said the shepherd. ‘How did you guess?’ asked the young man. ‘Three things,’ said the shepherd. ‘Firstly, you came here when nobody asked you to. Secondly, you charged me a sheep to tell me what I already knew. And thirdly, you have no idea what I do, because you took my dog, not a sheep!’
  4. @ Malmst33n[RPM] Welcome to our (your) forums! You express yourself quite good in English. For your question about the logo: I got the logo from somewhere (I no longer remember it). It was already transparent by its creator. However, you can post in Graphics and Designing Art to get an answer by a qualified member. Wish you good luck.
  5. Welcome back , prathapml, with your hot topics! I, finally, decided to go o2k7 (with a lot of effort to revive my o2k3 Access databases; not completely, yet!) However, I haven't found a generic way for disabling the creation of LIS. The only way, so far, is to install all features of the package and to run them from computer. Thank you for your topic.
  6. I can just say: WONDERFUL! Shall we get the file? Thanks.
  7. Re-uploaded! See the first post.
  8. I added those you see in my posts. I don't know if there's a limitation.
  9. It happens, quite often, that I need to print some reports in a place where the available printer is not the default printer set by my system. So, I designed this form (attached as Printers Form), to help display installed printers on my machine. Then, I can just click a printer in the list to set it as the default printer during current session. Credit for code is inside the form. Well! I, also, created Autokeys macro; so that I can only press F12 on my keyboard to open that form, instead of opening it within my user interface. However, that macro has no relation to the functionality of the form. You can delete it. Printers Form is a standalone form that you can import to your application and it should work instantly. I hope someone finds it useful. Any suggestions or ThankYous (or DamnYous!) are welcome. DefaultPrinter.rar
  10. Well! You haven't mentioned if the two Pcs are on a network or not. You haven't mentioned if each database conssists of a single file (tables and other objects) or two files; back end with tables and front end with linked tables and other objects. In either case, I'll mean "database with tables" when I refer to DB1 or DB2 in the following lines. Let's call the database on the other PC "DB1" and the database on your (or whatever) PC "DB2". Let's assume that there's a table named "MyTable" in both DB1 anf DB2. Now, you want to append records from MyTable in DB1 to MyTable in DB2. Then, copy DB1 to your PC if the two PCs are not on a network. If the two PCs are on a network, you don't need to copy DB1. Here'e how to append records from DB1 to DB2: 1- Open DB2 in design mode. You can press SHIFT while opening DB2 to get to this mode. 2- Go to File --> Get Extrenal Data and click "Link Tables...". 3- When the "Link" dialog box appears, browse to where DB1 is. 4- Once you click DB1, the "Link Tables" dialog box appears displaying a list of tables 5- Select "MyTable" and press "OK". Or press "Select All" to link all tables if there are records you want to append from, later. 6- When the "Link Tables" dialog box disappears, go to "Tables" page (in DB2, of course). 7- Since there's, already, a table named "MyTable" in DB2, the linked table will be named "MyTable1", automatically. 8- Now, go to "Queries" page. Create a new query using "Find Unmatched Query Wizard". 9- When the wizard appears, select "MyTable1" on the first page and "MyTable" on the next page. On the third page, select a key field in each table. Key fields should be the same, of course. Press the button "<=>". On the next page, press the ">>" button. On the next page, name your query as AppendMyTable. Select "Modify the design" then click "Finish". 10- While in design view, go to "Query" menu and choose "Append Query...". 11- When the "Append" dialog box appears, select "MyTable" from the list of table names, then click "OK". 12- Now, in the last column in your query (where it says "Is Null"), delete the field name that appears in the row "Append To:". 13- Close the query agreeing to save. 14- Now, run the query. It will append, only, the new records from MyTable1 to MyTable. Start, again, from step 8 through 14 for each table you want. When you finish processing all tables you want, delete all linked tables. Now, you no longer need DB1. You can delete it and use only DB2. NB: I suggest that you change the topic title because this is not a JOIN.
  11. What I can understand is that they are exactly the same database with the same design and same tables. And, the only difference is that tables in each of them has different records. And you want to append the records of the first database to the other, then delete the first one; then finally use the second one. Am I correct? If so, let me know!
  12. @ machkris Attatch your file to your post, and let's see what the problem is.
  13. The correct criteria expression for dates is: Between #06/06/1977# And #06/06/1982# BTW, all date/time formats are readable by MS Access, no matter how they look, as long as they are correct formats.
