My advice on this topic is to decide on a file naming convention that is understandable and intuitive and that your IT resources agree will work for your system (some computer systems have limitations on file names, file structures, and how deep in to sub-directories files may be saved. Many times I haven't realized I had a problem until I tried to archive the directory structure (ISO9660 file naming rules, I think) to optical disk or learned that the backups have been failing because the directory name was something like Q:\antarctica\sub-zero_ice_station_outpost\human_resources\policies\prohibition_on_feeding_marshmallows_to_puffins-v1-01-02-2013.txt which exceeded the file system because the whole file path was 126 characters long. Another good reason to ask the computer folks for their opinion.
I have screen shots of what I have in my db, where can I send it to you (it is in word format) so that you can take a look at it to see what I am doing wrong. I took a screen shot of what is listed for the button and I took a screen shot of the text box Job No. I don’t know how to bound anything other than put the code behind the button and putting the Job_No in the code as you stated. I understand what you are saying, but I thought if I put the text box name Job No in the code behind the button then it would be bound to my table with the Job No field. Heeeelllllppppp!!!! I am sorry that I can’t seem to grasp this….but appreciate all of your help!
An exit can be numbered by where the exit in the direction of increased mileage leaves the freeway, or by where the road that the exit serves crosses the freeway (which is occasionally ambiguous). From this number, the integer exit number can be determined by rounding up, rounding down, or rounding to the nearest integer. Many jurisdictions prefer to avoid an exit 0. To this end, the numbers are either rounded up to get the exit number, or any exit that would get the number 0 is instead numbered 1. Examples of highways with an exit 0 are British Columbia Highway 1 on the mainland, Interstate 70 in Wheeling, West Virginia along the West Virginia–Ohio border, and Interstate 90 on the Montana side of the Idaho–Montana border.
OK, First, you need to reread the blog. You should NOT be storing the Transaction_ID. It is a calculated value. Second, your naming is what confused me. Your Passenger table should have an autonumber PassengerID. That PassengerID should be the Foreign Key in your Reservations table. Your servation table should also have an autonumber for ReservationID. I really don’t see why you need sequential numbering in the passenger table. I can understand it in the Reservations table, but not in the passenger table. Also, I don’t see any reason for a transaction date in the passenger table. I can understand a CreateDate for when the passenger signed up.
This leads to another often-ignored topic, that of file naming conventions. What I mean by this is how and where you save the computer file in your computer system. I know more than one company that has a policy that all documents must be approved by a specific person and the document isn't considered implemented until that person saves it up on the file server. This is both good and bad, because MANY times I've seen that person receive random phone calls from upper managers within the company that didn't even try to look for a document - they just called that person and interrupted whatever they were doing in order to have them directed to the document. If a person wants to be the single point of contact (SPOC) on document management, they might receive a few phone calls they didn't anticipate. It may still be worth it.
For example, (M, A, R, Y) is a sequence of letters with the letter 'M' first and 'Y' last. This sequence differs from (A, R, M, Y). Also, the sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8), which contains the number 1 at two different positions, is a valid sequence. Sequences can be finite, as in these examples, or infinite, such as the sequence of all even positive integers (2, 4, 6, ...). In computing and computer science, finite sequences are sometimes called strings, words or lists, the different names commonly corresponding to different ways to represent them in computer memory; infinite sequences are called streams. The empty sequence ( ) is included in most notions of sequence, but may be excluded depending on the context.
Hello Bruce, I seem to be having a different problem altogether. I created my ticket in word using logos and text boxes as needed, ticket looks great. I followed your very clear instructions but when I did the Finish & Merge I got this message, "You cannot include DATA, NEXT, NEXTIF, or SKIPIF fields in comments, headers, footers, footnotes or endnotes." I then click on OK and get this, "A field calculation error occurred in record 1. Bruce any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!!
There are a number of ways to denote a sequence, some of which are more useful for specific types of sequences. One way to specify a sequence is to list the elements. For example, the first four odd numbers form the sequence (1, 3, 5, 7). This notation can be used for infinite sequences as well. For instance, the infinite sequence of positive odd integers can be written (1, 3, 5, 7, ...). Listing is most useful for infinite sequences with a pattern that can be easily discerned from the first few elements. Other ways to denote a sequence are discussed after the examples.
My experience with a number of medical device manufacturers has convinced me in the benefits of a “no designation” system. Three designation systems I have worked with have failed. Just recently, one of my customers reported that they ran out of range in their part-numbering format. The system allowed for assigning materials through a two-digit designator within the part number. When the system was designed, needing more than 99 materials was not considered possible. Unfortunately, things changed, and just a few years later, the company needed more than 99 materials causing the existing part number format to fail.
You don’t have to be a born salesperson to move all your tickets, but the better your sales tactics, the more successful you’ll probably be. Peter Kajanzy teaches how to crush a sale with pro techniques. One bit of advice he offers: When people ask for the price, instead of doing a complex breakdown of one for $2, three for $5, and so on, go straight to “You can buy five tickets for $8.”
I am trying to do a similar thing, but I would like to number each reference number sequentially starting at 1 each time when the account number changes. I am using for manufacturing though. Each job will have operations open and within the query I want to number each jobs operation with a sequential number starting at one. When the job changes then the numbering will begin again. There is a sequence number for each job operation that sorts it, but it is different for each job so that field I believe can only be used to sort the numbering function. sequential numbering
