    Thanks for trying to help, Bill! Unfortunately, I don't know if the computer came loaded with it, as I wasn't the original purchaser! I haven't used the Database before, but I have used Powerpoint, Publisher, Excel etc with no problems. If your suggestion to do a System Restore is still valid, do I have to back-up everything first? Hmmm, scary for me??!! ~Trish

    Hmmm - a learning curve? Like learning how to open the window before throwing the PC through it???!!! I'm thinking I might find Database useful for a new role I have - do you have any suggestions as to how I can find a free alternative? Sorry to bother you with my idiocy......I do (sort of) know how to use PC's - until they start refusing my requests!!

    Did the program come loaded with the computer when you first got it? If so, the program may be loaded on the restore disc that may (or may not nowadays) have come with it.

    I'm assuming you have used the program before. If it hasn't been that long, perhaps a System Restore may help. Click the Start button on the bottom left of your taskbar, choose All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. The Welcome window opens. Make sure Restore my computer to an earlier time is selected and choose Next. When the calendar opens, choose a date that you know you were able to use the program without the error and select Next. Follow to the end of the prompts and let the PC do its thing. It could take a few minutes. This won't cause you to lose any documents, pictures, etc.

    Let me know if this worked. Otherwise, we'll try something else.

No need to backup anything prior to a System Restore- however, it's always a good idea to have done it on a regular basis anyway. From the error message, I'd say that the license (if not other files) has become corrupted. Since you got the PC second hand, I'd have to say you probably won't be able to use it. Rereading your original message also tells me you've not used it before now (oops!). Is it something you can live without or just wanted to see what the program did? There are always free alternatives to just about any program that is sold- if you're willing to search and go through a bit of a learning curve. Let me know if I can help out more.

    I have no suggestions for any of the free alternatives. I usually Google with free alternative to...and fill in the blank. After that, it's just a matter of trying a few of them to see what would work best for you. Feel free to ask any future questions at this site!

How do I rebuild the outlook 2011 for mac email database?


Hi Scott
I am a Mac User also.
Ran my own Mac repair business for 18 years...
I remember this particular problem with Entourage/Outlook for Mac
I stopped using Outlook & Office years ago because it goes corrupt when too many emails are stored in the email data file. About the 1gb file size. A well known problem. I use Apple Mail these days. Note..It will Import emails from Entourage.
All this data is kept in the Microsoft User Data folder inside Documents Folder... if my memory is correct.
Make a backup copy of this folder if you can... before fiddling.
I used a Microsoft Utility Program called "Microsoft Database Utility" to fix and clean up the Email data file. Then Entourage opened up the email again and I got rid of excessive emails containing photos.
I don't even have MS Office installed on this Mac any more but I have located "Microsoft Database Utility" program which is about 2.3mb in size. It's probably inside your MS Office / Office folder already. Use Apple Spotlight to search or... a free program called EasyFind works great.
Open the program and point it to the Microsoft User Data folder where Entourage email data file is located. To locate the actual email data file...Use "Cmd I" to find size of suspect file. The email data file is a Fairly big one.
I am using a 2007 MacBook Pro running OSX 10.9 Maverics with the free "Pages" for reading Word Doc's & "Numbers" for Excel SS and it all works seamlessly. Dont have a need or want to pay for MS Office anymore as it never got many updates anyhow.

Hope this Fixes your Problem
Cheers
Trevor

On Side Subject.... Depending on age of your Mac...You can get Maverics OSX10.9 for free. Download the flu .DMG file. Use CCC (Carbon Copy Cloner from Bombich Software) to do a full Clone Backup of your current Mac HD to another external hard drive before installing new clean OSX 10.9 system then you get asked to Migrate your old system data back and you end up with a new Mac and all your data in place. Get free "MacTracker" to get your specific Mac Specs & what max OS it will go up to.

Database talks to code but code won't talk to database


Make sure you are connecting to the database,then just before you call your sql to insert use an echo statement to display the sql and check it for syntax:-
$sql = 'insert into table1 values('.$no.','.$no.',"block","'.$value3.'", "'.$value4.'")';
echo "SQL ==>" STARTOFSQL<br>".$sql." ENDOFSQL<br>";
