Goodbye to Data Access Pages in Access 2007 I had the pleasure of test driving Access 2007 (beta) to find out that Microsoft no longer supports Data Access Pages which it touted for several years. This is a typical Microsoft refrain. Microsoft is very good at reinventing software for generating revenue. Now you go and buy yourself a SharePoint Server if you want to collaborate.
These articles were written while verifying how well the new product turned out compared to an earlier version. I find it very much improved in many ways. I still find it somewhat slow compared to my experience with VS 2005, or Oracle. So far whatever I have seen I have liked with this version. I welcome your comments if it can improve what I am doing.
If the party involved in the above were to be a private individual, or an organization we would called it just 'scam'. It's a joke we can do without.
This shows only part of the problem with school districts. For the enormous amount of property taxes collected, the results are appalling. We spend way too much on the schools and the returns are below average.
Do we know how much India, China, and Russia spend to educate a student? I believe this is a very relevant question since we want to be globally competitive. It's time we look at the money spent on schools and start asking questions such as, 'should we outsource our students?'
Well really there is no necessity. I ran the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor and I can only see negative points. I am running Windows Media Center Edition presently and I see no reason to upgrade for the following reasons although Microsoft recommends that my machine is Vista Ready (with several hidden threats).

Microsoft Works(version8.4.621) does not work(no pun intended)* *By the way Microsoft Works which comes as a baggage on all the computers I ever bought is an uselss appendage.

Binary democracy is the flavor of democracy in USA. For all these years it is either the Republicans or the Democrats. Well in a nation with such variety and color, it cannot all be black or white. The hall mark of democracy must be plurality which is sadly missing. Yes, there are others just so we can cite that there are others. They are of no consequence as they lack the 'grease' that is required to gain a following. As for me, while voting, I look for any third party and vote, no matter what they stand for. May be someday some other party will make it to the top. When it comes to voting on public questions I am at least on a firmer and clearer ground.
Nothing can be simpler. This above tutorial, Generating a Simple Crystal Report using VS 2005, describes the basic steps needed to create a report using the wizard. The Crystal Report creation process is extremely easy and fast. The interface is very intuitive. If you have worked on any other reporting software such as the earlier versions of Crystal Report, creating Crystal Reports in VS 2005 is a piece of cake.
