I'm a full time database programmer and occasional all-around coder. Started with dBase II in DOS, used Clipper, Paradox, Access 1.0 through 2007, and now .NET VB / SQL Server / Windows Forms / Developer Express Components. Yeah, I'm pretty old.

Are your "pages" named "Sheet1", "Sheet2"? I have edited my answer to cover the possibility that you are using names other than the default.

comment Is software from NCH Software safe?
I've used WavePad sound editor for quite a while. Aside from some slightly aggressive marketing strategies in trying to sell you other programs, it's just fine. When you choose free software, it's only reasonable to expect to be solicited for paid upgrades - that's how it works.

I've done business with laptopscreen.com and they know what they're doing. Whatever they tell you to do, that's what I would do!

comment How do I connect to a MySQL database from another computer in VB.NET?
This question has been edited twice but no one has questioned the confusion over "MySQL" in the title and SQL Server in the body. Is it possible that the poster meant "my SQL" - i.e. "the SQL server that is mine" and not MySQL? The grammar in the original unedited question implies English as a second language.

comment when creating a pivot chart in MS Access, how to prevent it from updating with every change?
@soandos - This seems like a very specific and most likely correct answer. Why do you make it as a comment instead of an answer? Not a criticism - I'm genuinely curious.

comment How do I remove a table embedded in a Microsoft Word document?
Hmmm... If you would be comfortable letting me see the document, I would take a look at it and I'm sure I can figure out the problem. My email address is in my profile.
