It’s Alive!

Categories: General Dave Rathbun @ 9:24 am

Wait… what’s this?

Yes, my blog has a heart beat again. It has been a long time since I’ve been here, and I hope to fix that. I started this morning by reviewing all of the comments that were queued up for approval. I approved most of them and answered quite a few as well. One common question was related to whether my universe comparison macro would work with BI 4.1 or not; I have not had to use it in production on 4.1 yet, but I do have a sandbox environment where I can test that out. Hopefully I will have that done in the next week or two… along with posting the promised update.

Thanks for your patience.

    Hi, the easiest way to accomplish this would be to use everything using a local Access database file. Or if you’re ambitious you could convert the various Access databases to a real relational database ;) like Oracle or MySQL or SQL Server. I believe all three offer a free personal version.
