    Re: Which debate did you watch?

    I'd say that it was exactly as childish as I expected. I was just wondering whether Biden was going to be passive and get criticised for that or snipe back and get criticised for that instead and by...

  3. Re: Issue with .dll file when installing Application on different computer

    So you're saying that that DLL file was present on the system where your app failed, right? Where was it in relation to your EXE? What type of library is it (.NET, COM or otherwise)?

  6. Re: How to duplicate a column in the same table (SQLite)

    I assume that you mean the closing double-quote around the SQL code.

    I'm not sure that that would work either, in the general case at least. I would expect that you'd still end up with one value...
  7. Re: How to duplicate a column in the same table (SQLite)

    You need to identify the row you want to update using a WHERE clause. That is what PKs are for and why pretty much all tables should have one. If you don't have a PK then you need to identify the row...

    Probably the only good reason to have a local database would be if you want to be able to work offline. As you suggest, if you're always working online then you should be working against the master...

  21. Re: rows in incorrect order when inserting into SQL database

    I'm not clear on why that's an issue. Why can't use just use a data adapter to save the entire contents of a DataTable at once, inserting, updating and deleting records as required?
