Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    Then it's the wrong license number.

    I'm not available by phone this week, but I am by email.

    We should talk on Thursday during the webinar.

          Hi Al,
          I got the program running on win7 machine, it was not so easy finding the right adb however when I tried to run it it just sits there. I went into admin on qb and it still does nothing. Can you remote in early next week on the new computer and help me?

              Hi Al, I don't want to run my email on the new machine until I am using it completely so it will be in sync. What is a good way for you to remote in without a email link? And when would be a good time for you?

                I am trying to do a similar task. My Windows Vista that I had QRB and Alpha 5 crashed and I have a new Windows 7 PC. I re-installed Alpha 5 runtime that Al had setup for me but my license number does not work either. Any help would be really appreciated.

                  Then you have an old license number.
