What's wrong with this Tony Toews guy?

P: n/a
Hello. This isn't really an Access question. I just want to know whether Tony
Toews is retarded. In that vain, I have pasted down his last thirty or so
posts for someone out there to respond.

Is there anything substantial within all this bunk?

Ah, this is a bug within A2000. While there is a fix for the bug available by
downloading A2000 SP3 this MDB is now corrupt and unrecoverable. See the MS
Fixes
page at my website for links to the downloadable file.

Please ignore the posting from the "starwars" persona. That person has some
problems.

Crossposting to several relevant newsgroups, such as you have, is perfectly
fine.

Absolutely agreed. When working with the code I deliberately cause whatever
error
I'm trying to handle and put Select Case err.number in my error handling
routine
along with my actions and resume next.

No. I've put a deliberate wrap in it so it does indeed take 5 lines. Six if
you
include the hyphens.
So, take this for what "netiquette" advice is worth if it comes from a
character assassin hiding behind an anonymizer.
Well, yeah, that had occurred to me too. <smile> But I'm ignoring this
complaint
in this matter.

It shouldn't but then I've never used the splitting wizard. I'd go into the BE
and
see if the relationship view is still there. You may need to click on the Show
All
button on the tool bar.

If the layout is missing then use the appropriate sysrels tool from
www.trigeminal.com to copy the relationships window layout.

And if the relationships are not indeed in the backend you can still use the
sysrels
utility to copy the relationships window layout. You'll have to drag and drop
the
relationships yourself but that'll be less work.
I've noticed that queries are behaving strangely now, seemingly
because the relationships are not established.
Tell us more.
Am I supposed to go into the back end database and reestablish the
relationships? Or, am I supposed to do that in the front end database.
No, relationships are always created in the MDB in which the tables reside.

No. Or rather some of mine do indeed look like spaghetti but then I
designed the layouts that way. <smile> One of mine prints on a 48"
plotter and takes three feet of paper.

I have had that happen when I import the BE into a new BE. The
tables are placed on a grid and the lines are running all over the
place.

But this is where the sysrels utility comes in. It will copy the old
relationships window layout.

I create another directory and another shortcut pointing to that directory.
Then

Here's what I've found. YMMV of course.

Here's my setup string that finally worked. You may want to choose a different
option for disable network protocols.

setup SECURITYMODE=SQL SAPWD="xxxx" DISABLENETWORKPROTOCOLS=0
/L*V C:\msde.log

Look for value=3 in the log file and review the previous and 10 next lines.

INF: How to Secure Network Connectivity for SQL Server 2000 Local Databases
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;814130
"If you specify DISABLENETWORKPROTOCOLS=1, no network protocols are enabled for
that
instance."

FWIW I found most of my answers by searching at groups.google.com.

You're caught in the middle here of a skirmish.

Unfortunately the person who is using the nom de plum 'starwars', among many
others,
is posting very obnoxious and objectionable stuff.

If you see something strange review the headers and look for anonymizing
services or
teranews.com. So far those are the signs of the "anonymous" person.

Tony has generously taken it upon himself to tag all the toll messages so any
newcomers will be aware of their nature. He posts these only as relies and
not to the root where they will be a clutter and jsut draw a attention to that
junk.

Your message, on the other hand, is a very large, personal, off-topic post in
the root, seemingly for the sole purpose of questioning Tony's value to this
group which, in my opinion, is beyond question.

Steve,

Do you suppose that the message to which you replied here is just another
troll, another Mellon sockpuppet, or another fellow traveler. The language
used would indicate it might well be one of the above.

Your language is offensive (like that of the poster Tony is pointing out as
unreliable) and one could take your post to be, itself, trolling.

But I will just point out that the poster to whom Tony has responded may not
be unintelligent, but is certainly a troll and a character assassin, hiding
behind an anonymizer to try to accomplish its purposes without leaving a
useful trail of evidence.

Thank you for your kind words. Larry's been doing a lot as well.

There has been one or two postings in the past from a Videotron server which looked
suspiciously like the same person who has been making a nuisance of themselves.
