    VS 2012 Re: Shorten SQL Statement

    It's quite difficult to follow the sql the way you've got it laid out but I can see an immediate win. You're checking the starting data and ending date inside every Sum/Case. You could just move...

    Re: Add itself to startup ? VB 2010

    What is "it"? An executable?

    Normally this isn't something you would write into an executable itself but rather somethiong you would do in a deployment package. How are you deploying "it"?

    Re: or !=

    I'm pretty sure != isn't part of the ansii standard so may not be supported in all flavours of sql (I actually had to go and try it out in SQL Server to see if it works... it does).

  12. Re: [RESOLVED] Checking Internet Connection in VB

    Just pasting the code into the form wouldn't be enough. You'd need to call the function somehow. Probably from a button click event or similar.
