    Are you absolutely serious?

    You came here for help, right?

    I'm pointing out the first error I saw. You have a syntax error on that
    page. Fix that, in *ONE* page, not *604*, and if your page still doesn't
    work, come back here and tell us *what that means*, e.g. an actual error
    message and the line of code that causes it, rather than 18 paragraphs of
    narrative and every single line of your ASP page. And BTW, if you have 604
    pages in your ASP application, you're doing something seriously wrong.

    I'm not going to go through the 604 lines of code in your message and try
    and find areas of improvement. Sorry, I don't get paid enough for that.
    Now, if you'd like to hire me as a consultant, that'd be a different story.
    In the meantime, don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

    I hope you understand.

    Endless loop, perhaps? Have you tried debugging? Perhaps something like a

    in your loop?

    Sounds like an infinite loop. Or maybe usage of Scripting.FileSystemObject

    If it was a loop then the page should never work. But it
    work for a day (8am-4:30pm) then the hole site stop (stop

    A few things that popped up when i went through ur code:

    1) You use "vUserID" to store the login User Id at first and then overwrite
    it with the UserIDnumber from the User table. Are you sure this is what you
    want as the queries later are based on this UserIdnumber?

    2) The loop that checks for EOF:

    ' CREATE ARRAY
    do until rs.EOF
    c=c+1
    Client=Client &""& rs("cPolicy")&""& rs("cName")
    &""& rs("cOldPolicy")
    rs.MoveNext
    Loop

    should be re-written using WHILE ... WEND. If you use DO UNTIL .. LOOP, the
    loop is executed the first time even if the Recordset is empty which
    shouldn't be the case.

    3) The next loop looks a bit complicated too. Would be better to use WHILE
    ... WEND unless you want the whole thing to be executed atleast once before
    the checking is done. Also, just before the loop ends, you have opened the
    recordset

    rs.Open,dataConn
    CancelReq=CancelReq+1

    Loop

    But you havent closed the same before the loop starts again. Actually this
    should produce an error when u try to open rs again and I am surprised you
    are not getting an error that recordset is already open. Hope you are not
    using "On Error Resume Next"

    You should be telling ADO what command type you are using. In this case,
    it's a string containing a sql statement, so you should tell it in the 5th
    argument of the Open statement (I disagree with Aaron on this one: the Open
    statement is equivalent to Execute when the default cursor type and location
    are used):

    Const adCmdText = &H0001

    You should NOT open a recordset when running an action query. Use the
    connection's Execute method for this. And tell the implicit Command object
    that you are not getting any records back:

    sSQL = rs.Source="INSERT INTO FileRequestChecker (cPolicy, dRequested, id)
    VALUES ('"& P &"', {"& date() &"}, "& maxid &")"
    Const adExecuteNoRecords = &H00000080
    DataConn. Execute sSQL,,adCmdText + adExecuteNoRecords

    This is good. I could not find any Redirect statements before these lines,
    so you do appear to be cleaning up after yourself. You should check your
    other pages to make sure that your cleanup code is executing (i.e., no
    redirects occur before the cleanup).

    Failure to close and destroy your ADO objects is one of the leading causes
    of the type of errors you are experiencing.

    Greetings,
    I hope I will get some assistance here.

    I have a new Epson 2200. I think I made a good descision, but I must not
    understand all the variables with my computer, a Dell Inspiron 8100 Laptop,
    my scanner, HP S20, Photoshop Elements 2.0 and the printer.

    I am scanning slides and saving them as TIFs. My other choice that I am
    aware of is jpeg.
    I continue to get prints that don't 'look right'. My prints are too dark,
    compared to the screen and compared to the slides on the light table, or I
    get color casts that are red or too blue.

    I have tried different settings, but I think I need help understanding what
    co ntrols I should really be using and what settings I should use.

    Thanks,

    There is an art/skill to get the slide/screen/print to look similar -
    probably never look the same. Likely the major problem is calibrating the
    screen, and lcd screens are not knows or color fidelity.

    tiff/jpeg is irrelevant in this topic - unless the jpg compression is
    ridicules. One thing you didn't mention is the processing software you are
    using?

    You are going to have a very hard time making the necessary adjustments
    since you are using a laptop. LCD screens are not the best for photo
    editing as they don't have the dynamic range of a CRT and they don't
    display colors as accurately. If you have a CRT that you can hook up to
    it, your job will be much easier.

    This is a common problem. I have the Epson.

    Try this:

    Open your image and create a Curves layer adjustment. (Layers Palette, click
    on half white/black circle, then choose a control.)

    If the print output is too dark, grab the top of the curve and drag it to
    the left. For the first test, just try an arbitary amount and note the
    number in the 'INPUT' box. Print the image. Keep adjusting the curve and
    re-printing until you're happy with the print. You can create different
    setting squares on your print if you create a selection area first using the
    Marquee tool.

    You can record an 'Action' to do this automatically once you know the best
    setting.
    I have the opposite problem - my prints are always lighter than the monitor
    and I need to darken them by between 25 and 40 units.

    You can also use the Brightness/Contrast control, but I've found the Curves
    quickest and using curves doesn't make the whites 'grey.'

    With regard to colour - do the same test using the Color Balance setting.
    You only need to make one print starting with a uniform grey and selecting
    squares, then adjusting them. You could also use
    Image/Adjustments/Variations and pick a variation with the opposite
    (complimentary) colour to the cast on your prints.

    You can also buy a 'Color Spyder' which measures the screen colour and
    assists in calibration - good but expensive.

    We have heard your opinion that Macs are better. As a matter of fact we have
    heard it over, and over, and over.

    Now either help the poster, or don't post anything.

    I am not having any problems on my PC. So your solution is not really
    the solution, is it?

    Andrew,

    Just add Mr. Enough to your killfile now. He is one of the group ogres
    who does nothing here but post stupid, insulting messages and tell
    people how much better Macs are for everything. Apparently he is
    insecure with his decision to purchase an Apple and must attempt to
    justify it every chance he gets by telling others how much Windows
    s.

    I haven't any experience of using an LCD panel for photo editing, so I can
    only hope that you can improve matters by using colour management.

    The first thing you should do is run Adobe Gamma from the control panel and
    calibrate the screen to a gamma of 2.2.

    Then you should get hold of a standard test image such as the PhotoDisc
    target from [url]http://www.inkjetart.com/custom/[/url] (note that the image is in
    AdobeRGB colour space).

    Print the test image to the printer using Print with Preview in Photoshop.
    Select the appropriate paper profile in the print space profile box. (You
    may have to click on Show more options and select Color Management). Also
    click the Doent button, against which will be Doent: Adobe RGB (1998).
    In the Epson printer driver properties, select the appropriate paper type
    and in the custom/advanced settings, select No color adjustment.

    It's possible that your paper profiles are not yet installed. I believe
    they get installed with the PIM software.

    I hope that very brief runthrough will be enough to get you started.

    He's real popular over at comp.sys.mac.misc as well!
    Don't feel left out - he insults and trolls in there, too.
    God knows how many other places he confronts people...

    Everywhere but face to face I am sure. There he is no doubt too insecure to
    complain if a waiter ed in his food.

    Default What am I doing wrong?

    I am reading through the doentation and playing with the code as I go. I try
    this code with a simple .w3d sprite imported from Carrara (it's not max but
    it's pretty good). The world has two cubes and one sphere (1 cam 1 light).

    on enterframe
    trace (sprite(1).member.model.count)
    end

    do I have this wrong? am I high? should I stick to Flash? don't you hate it
    when you follow instructions and sh*t won't work? :)
