It looks like you are parsing in some type of delimited file which each row is usually determined by the line break "\n". So you load each row into an array so it makes sense that something with hundreds of thousands rows is crapping out your memory. There are a few things you can look int...

Ahh I see. Yeah, I didn't catch that. I'm so used to saying SELECT DISTINCT but it makes sense COUNT should wrap DISTINCT DATE().

Yes, that works. It's my original query but obviously I have to push the result out as "AS number".

Although, I changed DAY() to DATE() to get the specific dates. Day returns 1-31 which could duplicate.

Ok, BWM I'm going to try that. That was my first thought, but I have some code already that counts the first field and auto-focuses so as the user types it jumps from area code and so on and I didn't know how nicely it would play with that code.

Looks like my best option is to create a paste button that calls a JS function that will retrieve the last copied data from the clipboard, splits it up, and then places the value in each input field.

BTW, DECIMAL can store negative numbers. The description on MySQL's site is a little mis-leading. I think it's talking more about how the sign is handled bitwise and that a literal - sign is not used.

Post Posted: August 16th, 2011, 6:14 am

Ok, sounds like what you're saying is drop the decimal? So, store 7459.89 as a signed INT field, but insert 745989? Can you elaborate some?

It's back. I was able to log all the way in but then nothing once I was at my desktop.

On another try, I was able to submit the username at login and then when I started typing some text for the pass the keyboard gave out.

Keyboard works fine in bios and post. How do I troubleshoot this for linux?

I changed the boot order to boot straight to the HD. I changed it back to the way it was and it fixed it. I was obviously just booting to a wrong device and needed set to the way I had it originally. Whew.

It seems I have some programs that when tasked go to the taskbar instead of the systems tray.

Yeah, same here. This problem seems all too familiar and I hate to start searching through all my years of work to find where I solved this.

I've set the MC as 8 and the combobox to 9 and the textfield that's inside it to 10, but that still didn't get my tabs to cycle through the whole movie.
