  • What will happen to the SQL Query based object View (EmployeesVO)

    Schema used: HR

    1. I created a view through SQL Query view object object (Table Employees - EmployeesVO).
    2. Creates an entity of the Employees (EmployeesEO) table object.
    3. In the section EmployeesVO (View object) entity objects, I chose EmployeesEO (entity object).

    What will happen to the View SQL Query object based on (EmployeesVO) will it change to VO based on entities or still to be based query VO.

    It is there because you can still base your query based Vo EO according to Vo.

    After that you base your VO on EO you can now use 'Add the attribute of the entity' to base your attribute on the atrributes of EO. Or if you skilled enough you can manually change the XML to VO

  • I support a very large school district running Firefox 3.6. What will happen at the end of life date? In the online environment, we test this week.

    I run the test center for a very large school district with over 120 students of k. We have a current deployed at base of 54 client machines of k using Firefox 3.6. We have not upgraded for many reasons, of which the most important is to remove the possibility of use in navigation private students and dealing with plugin-updates for the digital non-born (read dumber than a bag of hammers users) that make up the majority of the customer base.

    We test ESR now, but only discovered this end of life for 3.6 is tomorrow, 4/24. We are currently in the middle of the scale of the State of online tests. The question is, what will happen tomorrow, when the browser will end of life. ESR wiki mentions that "an update to the current version of Firefox Desktop will be available through the Update Service Application"

    So the main question is, are my students/teachers goes to get a popup telling them that they have updated the browser if we have already turned off updates? If so, can I I disable remote using SCCM, because there will be all sorts of havoc.

    Please advise as soon as possible and thank you in advance.

  • On this forum, what will happen after the beta period?

    I was wondering what will happen on this forum after the beta period. I think that there are a number of options:
    -the forum will be deleted or at least is more accessible for participants of the beta
    -the forum will stay for a longer period of time, perhaps unalterable, but remains limited to the participants of the beta product and management
    -the forum is open to the public, read-only or read / write

    What happens on the forum may be long term help people decide what and how they post here.

    Thank you

    Hi, Wilfred,

    Excellent question. If we continue to make great questions in the forum like this, we can (and probably) turn this into a public forum with all the threads of discussion held. We will probably remove the beta announcements and also remove/modify entries that are specific to beta, but keep the rest for future participants to take advantage.

    This is all the more reason to keep this forum for discussions, questions, exchange of ideas and comments.

    Thank you

  • I want to copy all my jpg files to another directory (a portable hard drive) with some of the same names of JPGs, but not necessarily all. What will happen? The word 'COPY', will be some of the deleted files be added or nothing at all.

    I have a LOT of pictures in my computer (over a thousand) and I want to put them on a portable hard drive, I bought (1 terabyte) but I won't write any of the names of existing files with different images. IS THIS POSSIBLE? Do I need software or special hardware? I tried the copy/paste standard as well as move files to the new directory, but it seems that I can lose files. I'm not sure if the files that are missing (or lack, in my opinion) are not copied. When I finished emptying the directory, it shows that it is empty but the new directory does not seem to have any additional files that should be there based on the counting of the files before and after.

    Thanks for any help you can provide, Bill

    1: right-click and then drag the pix on the external drive. Release the right mouse button and choose copy here. They are there?  Now remove it from the computer.

    2: you can see pix of the same name overwrite each other, or be done with (1), (2), etc.. But even in this case, they will be interspersed with the former. If keep you them in separate folders with different names, that should not happen. Personally, I rename all the pix before storing them. You can select the set instead of the code of the camera and a group, rename the first holiday 2009 yo and the rest will be renamed holiday 2009 and each havf will one (1), (2), (3), after them.

    It is also a nice freeware tool which, among other things, can rename a group of photos easily.

  • I want to save an IMAP via POP3 account in Thunderbird, but it will not download old emails that are still on the server. How can I do this?

    I start using Thunderbird to save and purge old e-mails from an account via POP3. This account is accessible by other users using IMAP on their computers and mobile phones.

    I want to archive and purge old messages from the server using Thunderbird. But it will not download messages that apparently are marked as read on the server via IMAP.

    POP mail accounts must be configured to "leave messages on server".
    Check this box before use.

    • Tools > account settings > server for the e-mail account settings


    • menu icon > Options > account settings > server for the e-mail account settings

    Select: 'leave messages on the server.

    Optional: select: "during the more than xx days" this will remove something more that select the specified number of days "until I have delete" when you delete an email it will be deleted from the server.

    Click Ok to save the settings.

    POP mail accounts are only looking at the Inbox and download everything that has not been previously downloaded regardless of whether it has been read or not. They cannot access or download from any other folder on the server.

    If you want to download the e-mail messages in other directories, you must move the emails in the Inbox to upload and it's may not be practical in your situation.

    What you can do is to synchronize your IMAP folders to a copy downloaded to your IMAP e-mail account.
    Then switch mode 'offline' to stop any additional synchronization synchronized files update.
    MozBackup tool could now be used to save the profile synchronization created mbox files that contain emails.

    You can also do the following to get a copy outside the IMAP e-mail account:
    Create the same folders in the "local folders".
    Then right click on the email and "copy to" and select local folders and the folder you need.
    Put a copy in the local files means these e-mails are also on your computer and they are not influenced by what you do in the IMAP folder.
    You need backup emails in these folders.
