Question:

My database is getting to be way too big! 2 GB seems way too small for my database, is there anything I can do to make it smaller or run more efficiently without having to upsize?

Brandon C.
Answer:

You can actually split your database into a couple different types of database. We can create forms to facilitate the front end UI, tables to store the data itself, queries to run off of each other with the data in the tables, and reports to display this data efficiently. Doing this is splitting the database into a frontend database (the forms and reports), and the backend database (which is the tables and queries). We can then link any number of backend databases to our front end database - each backend database will have the size limit of 2 GB, but we can use as many as we want to connect to the frontend!

Question:

Why am I always getting errors about a non static method being called from a static context?

Brandon C.
Answer:

This is usually thrown when a user tries to call a class property without first making an instance of the class. The class is mainly a template that needs an object created to have the class applied to it. This object is what contains the property you are trying to call. in the instance, the "class" is the template, the "methods" are the logic, and the fields are the data. These together form the object.

Question:

My laptop is having problems; it continuously asks me to set the date/time on the machine, and it won't save the setting. As soon as I hit save, it restarts and brings me back to the same screen. Why?

Brandon C.
Answer:

This is likely due to the CMOS battery. After being unpowered for an amount of time they eventually discharge all of the power they have stored. These are what are responsible for carrying the things the computer needs to remember while being powered off - like the date/time, and how to even boot the computer up. Get a new battery and all should work.
