Re: WhatsApp

Maybe someone who knows more about HTTP requests in VBA and cURL can lend a hand. I did a search once on "convert curl to VBA" and got a few hits. Maybe those can help

Re: Lost Specific Printer Settings

Are you using Windows 10? There's a setting that will change the default printer when you use a specific printer. (I'm not kidding....)

Re: Split database

Nancy:

What do you mean by "remote location"? Is it on a server connected to the client computer on a LAN or literally a computer that is offsite?

Re: Splitting database

Important point here about split databases: if you do not maintain a persistent database, you could see a degradation in speed. It makes a big difference. This is item 16 on CJ_LONDON's list.

Re: Change border color of textboxes when they have focus

@Gina:

While I did notice people discussing continuous forms, I didn't see that (I still don't) in the original post.

Either way, maybe someone searching for the topic will find it helpful :)

Exactly. Because in the context of the discussion, this is the point I was making.

Ok, so 2 (somewhat similar questions):

Re: calculate the driving distance between 2 zip codes

Good news!

I followed the info from Jdraw and Colin and it's working consistently. I tested about 5 or 6 different addresses and it worked each time.

Many thanks to both of you!

Re: calculate the driving distance between 2 zip codes

Does anyone know if this still works? I've been using it since 2015 and recently it's been inconsistent about being able to find addresses and routes.
