    Threads merged. Deleted a couple of posts for clarity. @neilyd, I'd urge you to spend 5 minutes or so familiarising yourself with the various sub forums we have available. You'll get much better...

    Re: Creating text files

    Moved to C# forum.

    I'm not sure it's your problem but there's no need to Call File.CreateText repeatedly in the loop. Just call that once before you start looping.

    Re: The future for VB? Discussion.

    To be honest, if the rationale for your language choice is how quickly you can type in it then you're likely to be making bad choices. Words per minute is certainly not a criteria anyone ever used...

    Re: Dependency Injection

    I generally try and use it as a pattern because it aids flexibility. I don't use any framework though.

    Why do you say that type safety gets in the way of Agile? I don't think I've ever heard that assertion before.

    We won't give you an exact answer because it's a school assignment and that, obviously, would be cheating. We are happy to give you a gentle prod in the right direction though.

  8. Re: Multiple connections to the same Access database simultaneously from the same use

    I haven't got VS in front of me to check but I'm pretty sure string is nullable even without the ? because it's a reference type. take the ? back out and you should be back to the previous error.

  9. Re: Multiple connections to the same Access database simultaneously from the same use

    That's happening because you're trying to covert some variable which contains a null to a string. The obvious candidates are table, refCol, refColValue and targetCol. If you check they're not null...
  10. Re: Multiple connections to the same Access database simultaneously from the same use

    Another approach might be to ditch the timer temporarily so you can at least be certain that that's what's causing the problem. Assuming it is, rem all the code out and start reintroducing it bit by...
  11. Re: Multiple connections to the same Access database simultaneously from the same use

    None at all I'm afraid. I think I'd probably start investigating by outputting the current time (down to the millisecond) to the console at a few strategic points in your code. Do this both before...

    Yes, as long as they're not in the same scope. i.e. you shouldn't do this:-

    Yep, special characters really shouldn't be a problem. Unicode just handles them for you.

  15. Re: Multiple connections to the same Access database simultaneously from the same use

    That's a bit like having someone tell you not to drink and drive and responding with "no worries, I'll wear a seat belt". You probably won't die but it is kinda missing the point. You said earlier...

    Well, you'll have set the variable (lets say you chose to call it userIsAdmin and used a boolean) to indicate whether or not they're an administrator, so your code will look something like:-

    Ah, I tried:-

    I figured it would treat that as Any td or input which was a descendant of .ReportViewer. I thought it would "remember" the...
