Feature Transfer Error

I am trying to install a program called F9, which is a Microsoft Excel add-in for pulling financial data from a SQL database. In the installation process, I am getting a Feature Transfer Error and the message is Error: -2 Transform Package. I have been told this is a problem with InstallShield from the program vendor, but I have not been able to find a solution. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Running SQL queries on Excel

Yes, there is if you have Access as well. You can declare your Excel spreadsheet a data source in Access and then query using SQL. To do that, create a new DB and select Insert --> Table --> Link Table. Change "File of type" to show all files and select your Excel spreadsheet. Follow the wizard and you'll have a link to the sheet and can query it as if it were a table in access. However I doubt you really need that. Excel's functions should be a match for most queries. Can you give a sample of what you try to query (or why you want the SQL queries?

SOURCE: SQL Server 2000

An easy way to transfer objects (tables, user defined functions, stored procedures, etc.) is to use Enterprise Manager's "Generate SQL" feature. Use this process at your own risk. Doing it wrong could mess up your existing database.

1. In Enterprise Manager, right-click on the old database and choose "All Tasks" then "Generate SQL Script".
2. In the dialog that comes up, click "Show All" then select the checkboxes for "all stored procedures" and "all user defined functions". (You might also want to check some other boxes, depending on your exact situation.)
3. Click the "generate" button and save the script that it creates.
4. Run the script in the NEW database.

If you run the script in your OLD database, it may destroy your objects, and that would be very bad. Make sure you run the script in your NEW database. (While we're on this subject, it's a good time to mention that you should back up your database before you start this process, and you should make changes to a test system before migrating it to production.)

That should move your stored procedures and user defined functions over.

You can use a similar process to move tables, views, users, and other objects over as well.

SOURCE: SQL 401: cannot open database

Sounds like a security issue with SQL server.

Check your SQL database connections. You will probably have to recreate them so that PC can have access to them.

The SS4000-E  is a NAS storage server.  To the best of my knowledge it is not possible to put database files on a NAS.  They need to do on Direct Attached Storage.

How do I fix Damaged NSF file?


Hi...
The process you go through to try and fix a corrupted NSF file is to run the sequence of fixup, compact and then updall.
To do this go to the console and run the following commands:
LOAD FIXUP database (Remembering to add -J switch if transactional Logging is on)
When this has finished then:
LOAD COMPACT database (you may need to add a switch here depending on your system config i.e. -B), and finally:
LOAD UPDALL Database (Usually with -r switch).
If you find that this does not solve the problem, then try running these commands from a DOS Command line without the Domino Server running - it can sometimes be more thorough.
The switches can all be found in the help file. If this does not help, then try to restore the file using the Lotus Notes Repair Kit tool. http://www.lotusnotes.repair/
Good Luck.

How do i get into my odt ocument and to convert to


The ODT file extension can be opened in a variety of ways by a number of programs. In Windows itself, one of the most prominent ways of opening it is by using Word itself – with an add-in called OpenXML/ODF translator to help it screen it like a normal .doc file. Other ways include using the StarOffice office suite that comes with a program called Writer – the same as the OpenOffice.org suite. This Writer is an open source clone of Word and is charmingly fulfilling in its rolesOther programs include AbiSource’s neat word processor called AbiWord – a very light and feature rich word processor. This program can also invoke spelling checks and other measures that usually feature in full fledged and large proprietary.....hope this helps please vote thanks

About sql*plus of oracle 8i


Can you clarify your question?

For instance, where do you need to create the username/password? Oracle?

If you are asking for the sql to create a user in Oracle, it is very simple:
(change the items inside <> to your needs)
sql> create user <username> identified by <password>;

At this point, keep in mind that the user has no privileges, so the user will exist, but will not be able to do anything on the database.

Hint: What I like to do when I am in a hurry is create the user as follows:
grant <role> to <username> identified by <password>;

This command will create the user, assign it the password you gave it and grant the ability allowed by the role in question.

Hope this helps!

How to export e-mail accounts from old email to the new one?


If you have an email address with another company, there is no way you can link up your hotmail to it directly. You will have to take note of all of your contacts, and re-add them manually, and perhaps send mail out to all of them to let them know the address has changed.

It used to be in the past, that microsoft would allow automatic forwarding of emails, however, they have since discontinued that, so you will have to check it frequently, to make sure people "get the message", so to speak, OR

There is another method. I don't usually keep the habit of openly advocating Microsoft products (Open source opens the door for so much more possibilities), however, I have found Windows Live Mail to be quite useful in circumstances for this. you can try one of two things, which can help with it-

1.) Run both accounts in the same client. You can accomplish this in the program, by using the "add accounts" feature to add your email accounts in. this will allow you to check your email and send messages in both clients, at least for alittle while. You will need to do a bit of searching for your new email companies "pop3/SMTP or IMAP settings", to configure your accounts for usage, however.

2.)Run both accounts in the Live Mail client, and transfer your old mail over to the new account. This can only be done if the new company you are with provides IMAP settings. All you would need to do once this is accomplished, is to Drag n Drop the messages over from folder to folder. I've tried this when transferrign mail from a client's hotmail account to her gmail account (with her supervision, of course).

3.) continually forward the mail over to your new account. easiest method available, and semi-effective, if you don;t mind the "fwd"s and your own email signature being marked on every message.

There is however, no way to transfer contacts, except manually. Sorry, but there is no easy way out when migrating email accounts. The companies just don't like each other.

Hope this helps. let me know if you need additional help with my suggestions, but let me know what company you switched to first.

Resolution Suggestion One:

# Test your Internet connection to Windows Update.

A simple solution but one that works in many circumstances!

Test to determine if your Internet connection is preventing you from reaching the Windows Update Web site. To do this, visit the following Microsoft Windows Update Web site to determine if you can download the Iuident.cab file:

http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/v4/iuident.cab

If a file download dialog box appears, the problem is not with your Internet connection. Click Cancel. If you cannot connect to this link, and you receive a "Page Cannot Be Displayed" error message, your Internet connection is preventing you from reaching the Windows Update site.
