  1. In Topic: VB6 report must not have new line character at end of file

    Posted 4 Feb 2014

    Upvote for publishing your answer. However, you provided so little context in your question that nobody could figure out what you were using to do your report. For all we knew, you were using Crystal Reports or something. It doesn't surprise me that if you found a similar question nobody answered it.
  2. In Topic: Saving Decimal Variable After App is Closed

    Posted 4 Feb 2014

    There are all sorts of ways to persist (save, basically) data. Text files are fine, databases, cookies, and so on. You might want to read up on how ADO stores text files. Then you can easily change to a database if you should decide to do so.
  3. In Topic: Complex String Expressions

    Posted 5 Oct 2013

    So tell the nice man that you appreciate his help by clicking the green plus under his answer. :)
  4. In Topic: Excel/Visual Basic Array Multiplication

    Posted 5 Oct 2013

    If I understand correctly, you're making the assumption that all the cells will have numbers that can be multiplied. If you have, say, five rows in one column and six in another, you'll have a blank cell in the last row of the second column. If you try to perform a multiplication on that cell, you'll get the value error. Your code doesn't take this into account; you take the largest number of rows and the largest number of columns and set your for loop to that.

    I would suggest that you check for a blank cell in your loop and use 0 if you find one.
  5. In Topic: Passing variables between exe's

    Posted 5 Oct 2013

    I haven't fully digested what you have said, but I have the feeing that you're thinking about this in terms of any application having access to any other applications memory simply by hitting that memory address. Windows restricts this on an opsys level, the idea being to minimize the problems that bugs can cause. Here's a link to a Windows overview of interprocess communication: http://msdn.microsof...4(v=vs.85).aspx . You can also look at marshaling, proxies and stubs, shared memory and the like. But you can't just poke another exe's memory addresses directly unless someone has come up with a trick of some sort.

    As maj has said, the easiest way (when you know how) to accomplish what you are looking for is to create an ActiveX EXE. That becomes an object that you can reference in your program. Create a property in your ActiveX ExE, expose a method that runs your RoboRealm program. Think of the EXE as a wrapper that brokers interprocess requests for communication with your RoboRealm program.

    I found your post in the thread, that is now locked in the .net forum, to be quite humorous. Just wanted to say I appreciate your work and effort helping people out, because sometimes I don't have the patience myself to sit there spoon feeding people information. Thanks :)
