Does anyone know of an app that will open the above, apart from works! and preferably free?

Preferred Solution: Works Database File Viewer

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Works Database File Viewer

For anyone whose interested/had the same problem it seems that there is no such thing as a "viewer" the best option though I've yet to try it is to save the file as a .csv and open it with open office. If you just want to view the data and copy and paste what you want it can also be saved as a text file - this is all assuming you or someone has access to Ms Works, as a last resort you can open the .wdb file with notepad or wordpad though its a lot more messy to access what you want. - hope this helps.

Hi, hopefully this is the proper forum,but if not, perhaps an administrator would move it to the correct one. Anyhow, I've sent a MSWorks database file to an associate & he doesn't have works on his system, therefore has been unable to open it.(wdb extension) Can anyone provide me with the info of a possible download "viewer" that would enable him to open & print it?
Thanks in advance, Ben

Can anyone tell me how to set the print area in "Database"? I want to print a form which shows lots of names down the first column, and then has a blank "Signature " column next to it, but with horizontal gridlines to take their signatures.

When I look on "Print Preview" it only shows the "Names" column, and I can't get it to print a column next to it. If I remember corectly, there is a facility in Excel for this, but I can't find it in the Database application.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I am working on a database for our Ambulance Company. One of the fields I am having trouble with is writing a formula to calculate response times when time enters another day.

Example, we use military time therefrore, 23:59:00 would be 11:59 pm. If we run the call till 00:10:00 ( 12:10 AM) the formula I have written ( = Arrival Time - Responding Time) gives me an invalid time because it doesn't recoginize I have gone past the current day into the next day.

Please help me figure out how to formulate this field.

Been using Works for years and have never had this happen before. If I make a change in the database and try to SAVE, the program just closes, no error message. I re-open and the changes obviously have reverted to original state. I have run AdAWare, Spybot, AVG is up to date and runs nightly and am clean. I reinstalled MSWorks (just over the old program) and thought it was fixed, but now it is doing it again. Very frustrating Yes, I do get the message about more than 500 fonts, but since I have XP, I have been told that this is not critical anymore. Any ideas or suggestions? ... Millie in KY

A:Will a works database work?

Works will only "work" if it has an actual database like Access to enter your data into. You can set up one database and enter the data there directly. If you are on a network you can share the database and have forms set up for data entry. If you are in different locations you could use some kind of program like PCAnywhere and the remote person could dial in and do data entry on the database. There are way too many options so you might want to give us soem kind of idea on what your setup is and how to accomplish it.

A:works suite 2003 database

This happens in Excel too, putting a column in alphabetical order is assumed to mean that you want all the rows to still contain the original values.

In Excel, you can highlight the data in the column and this sorts only that column - Then move on to the next column, etc.

If that doesn't work in Works, you may want to
sort the first column,
cut and paste the remaining columns into separate worksheets (one column, one worksheet) and
then sort them,
then copy them all back...

I am working with the Microsoft Works Database program that comes with Windows XP. I am listing a number of books, their isbn's and their prices. I evidently punched a wrong button because now every time I enter a new book the price from the previous entry is automatically entered for the new book. For example, if the price for the previous book was 19.99 that is automatically entered as the price for the next book.

It's not a big problem, because I can override it by simply entering the correct price, but still it's annoying. Anyone know how I can undo this default price setting?

A:Why File is not a database?

The BIG problem with UNIX/Linux file-system repairs is that blocks of data of one file could (theoretically) end up in another, and file size corrections can lead to blocks of empty data or truncated files. This is not a real problem for plain text files, since you can see what's wrong, but binaries and files with complex structures (like nsf files) can get damaged beyond repair. And if fsck runs for 10 whole hours, there must have been some serious damage, with a very lengthy report of all modifications it did.
I'm amazed that the system still runs... See it as a boxer who's lights went seriously out, was patched up and is now covered in patches and stitches. On the other hand, the system will run because it's unlikely that there was any write-behind action on vital system files.
You might ask IBM/Lotus for their help, maybe they have a tool that can be used to revive an nsf database... Or maybe it's better you try to recover a file via Lotus Notes Repair Kit tool? try this option also. I'm sure this is a good alternative fallback. http://www.lotusnotes.repair/
Look at this reputable source also.

I never used Navicat. Instead I use SQLYog (click to get a free version).

I still have a old version of MS Access. I proceed this way to transfer the data to MySql :

- with access, I export the needed tables into .xls files,
- with Excell, I convert the .xls files into .csv files,
- with SQLyog, after having create the tables structures, I import the .csv files.

Are there any file viewers that can read .sig files (from Printmaster). Since I can't get my PrintMaster to install I would like to retrieve the data from some of the files.

I have a user trying to user clip art in Microsoft Word 2004 for MAC. Every time they navigate to: Insert > Picture > From ClipArt, they get the following error message:

"Attempt to open database file ClipArt failed"

What's funny is that when they click on "OK" for that error message it still brings up ClipArt and allows them to insert ClipArt, so that tells me it has been installed.

A:Sticky Notes 7 lost content in database file

Hello Michael,

As I have replied to you on the 7 Sticky Notes facebook page, I will reply here too, in case this can help other users.

I have just added the comment below added as a new troubleshooting topic at the 7 Sticky Notes online help, that can be accessed here: 7 Sticky Notes - Troubleshooting - Fun, interactive, powerful and cool Sticky Notes for your Desktop!

In this case, it is very likely that your synchronization software (GoogleDrive) overwrote, or deleted the notes.mdb database. All your data (notes) is stored inside the notes.mdb database file, but also all files synchronized by these synchronization software are susceptible to be deleted and overwritten by them if they conclude they are old, and by sharing your live main database file notes.mdb you will risk to have all your notes overwritten and lost if you allow it to be changed by external synchronization software.

Some of these software keep backup of the files they overwrite, so you can try to look for it or read their documentation, but, unfortunately if this was done it is likely that the notes won't be able to be restored.

If you share the notes database (notes.mdb), or any other file, with GoogleDrive, DropBox, SkyDrive, etc, you are allowing them to do anything with it, which means freely overwriting it if they decide to. This means that if you keep several computers synchronized with GoogleDrive, DropBox, SkyDrive, etc, they might think that one is more recent then another, and overwrite a file that it shouldn't.

So the recommendation is to NOT synchronize over the notes.mdb database file. You should never sync the main notes.mdb file. It is your personal data file, and the one 7 Sticky Notes uses, so it is too risky to let other sync softwares to have full control over it.

Instead, use the Online Synchronization feature. It was specifically designed to allow synchronizing your notes with other computers using DropBox, SkyDrive, GoogleDrive, etc, and it does not use the notes.mdb file, and thus provide a safe operation.

7 Sticky Notes is built to be robust and protect your data as I know how terrible it is to lost your personal notes (i have done it in the past), but if other program overwrites the database (pretty much as if you delete the database manually), there isn't much it can do. 7 Sticky Notes does lock the database while using it, but when it closed, it can't track it anymore.

As an additional suggestion to protect from accidental removal that might cause your data to be lost, since the 7 Sticky Notes database is pretty light it won't cost you much hard drive space to setup an automatic database backup to keep track of it in a second location. You can enable the 7 Sticky Notes auto-backup option, and let it keep track of your database for a customized number of days, as explained in the Database Options section of the 7 Sticky Notes Online help.

So, see if GoogleDrive somehow kept a backup for it... afterall I truly hope you didn't loose your notes, and hope this helps you and others as well.

Best Regards,
Fabio - 7 Sticky Notes

Hi all,

I have access database for which the source file need to be from excel file from SharePoint. I am doing this manually download the excel file from SharePoint and upload into access database . Is there any way to create command button in access to download the file from SharePoint based on the URL provided by us.

I think for this we should use some VBA codes to execute this download.

Thanks in advance.
 

A:access database download excel file from sharepoint

You can use WebDAV that will make SP site look and use like a normal folder structure. Our Network admins implemented shortly after upgrading to SP10 and it has been a live saver.
I am able to acces folders like \\MySharePoint\DavWWWRoot\DDS\QA\Consumers and access files stored in sharepoint folder. I think configuration is available to allow the skipping of the wwwRoot part as well.

You might also try using the url path and replaceing the %20% with a space.

Dear Friends,
I had already posted a question about a program to organize book reviews, but my friend asked for little more if possible. Hope this further question will helpful for others too.
He needs a program more simple of Excel or other hard-to-use, databases.
He i8s a professor and need a simple program to order and archive book reviews that can be found later. It should be
1)for MAC
2) with fields for the Autor, title, year and, above all, the review

The guy who helped before did a good job for me but my friend needs some more.
Thanks a lot
Tommy

Does anyone know of a good, low cost alternative to viewing a wide variety of .eps files?

I've tried Ghost Script, ReaConverter, ABC, Able Fax Tiff View (even with Ghost plug-in), RIA Media Viewer, Deneba Canvas.

Some of them open certain .eps files but I'm looking for a program that will open ALL files with an .eps extension.

I don't mind spending a little money. I just don't want to have to purchase Adobe Acrobat just to open .eps files.

TIA!
 

A:Low cost .eps file viewer?

Some EPS files are not DSC compliant. That means they can&#8217;t be opened in an editor and edited in any way. I suppose they are meant just for printing with a PostScript compliant printer. Other than the included preview file I am not sure they can even be &#8220;opened&#8221;.

Most DPS compliant EPS files are either vector or raster graphics. Many editors will handle only one or the other. If you install the plug-ins with the freeware Irfanview I think it will open both. And you have some cropping and manipulation abilities in Irfanview.

If you want a true editor that will handle both types of image you might look at Paint Shop Pro. You can pick up legal Corel copies on Ebay really cheap. Version X has everything you need and can be had for $20 delivered and XI for ten bucks more. I got a CD-only version of X last year just for the vector integration and have been pleased with the program. I do most editing in Photoshop and can work a lot faster in that, but PSP is surprisingly competent.

But don&#8217;t expect it to open and edit non-DPS compliant files meant only to be printed. It might, but I doubt it.
