1. Setup VPN

Setup VPN including configuring router and/or server and 1+ clients. Router must support VPN. Can be either router to router or use a Windows server. We prefer a Windows server but if the router is a SonicWall or Cisco, it's ok to use.

3. Now It's Easy To Get End-User Problem Reports

In the past it's been a pain to get end-users to give developers an accurate and complete list of the steps they took to get to a problem - especially if screen-shots are desirable.

Now Microsoft has provided a tool that makes the entire process ridiculously easy.

8. Concrete Ways to use Online Collaboration Software

The talk that surrounds online collaboration can get a bit abstract, with a penchant for buzzwords. For every press release or blog post that says we need to revolutionize our position as thought leaders through synergistic culture building, there's another business that signs up for online collaboration software with no real idea what they're doing. So I'd like to take some time today to talk about more concrete reasons why online collaboration software is a better choice than the alternatives.

9. TDBGrid: Rerarranging Columns at Will

Delphi's TDBGrid is an incredibly useful component; one you'd expect to find in any professional development tool.

One of it's handy behaviors is that users can click in column headers and drag to rearrange column ordering to their liking.

Unfortunately, TDBGrid doesn't offer the developer any really easy way to rearrange grid columns from code. This is inconvenient because you might offer the user a choice of various columns upon which they can search, and it would be nice to make their chosen column the leftmost - at least. Often it makes sense to rearrange other columns as well.

This little class allows you to do that.

It has no exposed methods, and only two properties, so it's incredibly easy to use.

Read on to learn how it works and to get the code.

10. ODBC - Intersolv v3.11 driver with Pdx9 installation disk

Currently using Pdx 11.0.0.302 on laptop with Win7 64 bit, no problems with essentially interactive use for year past. 

Now have need for access to Pdx tables by ODBC. Have installed drivers supplied on the Pdx 9 install disk but the drivers do not show up on the Drivers tab of the ODBC Administrator window.

In past, have successfully installed drivers ex Pdx 9 cd with same Pdx 11 set up on machines running Win XP. Except this time used a backup cd copy of the original installation disk. Made 2 attempts, first prompted for licence code, entered and it ran. The driver files have copied to the default location as prompted by the setup procedure. Also accepted default installation path for Pdx 11.

7. Paradox ObjectPAL Dormant Customer Ordering Trend Report (Old And New Versions)

This article describes a Paradox objectPAL ordering trend reporting program I made that accepts a purchase order date range and a non-purchase order date range. It will report customers who bought during the purchase time period, but not during the non-purchase time period. There are 2 versions of this report. The older version uses only objectPAL Tcursors to perform the processing. The newer one incorporates programmatically executed queries in addition to Tcursors. The purpose of this report is to reveal those customers with declining sales.

9. How I Generate A List Of Top Customers For A Specific Sales Representative

This is a useful report I made using the Paradox objectPAL coding to create a listing of top customers for a specific sales representative along with an order date range input. It’s a good insight into who your sales people are selling to and how much in a given time period.
