When renaming a file there are a few things to consider. Files, like folders, can contain up to 255 characters excludingrepparttar /:*?"<> characters.

Do "NOT" changerepparttar 107887 last 3 characters (extension) ofrepparttar 107888 filename. Windows looks at this extension to associaterepparttar 107889 document with a specific application.

To change a file name, first selectrepparttar 107890 particular file. For example: say you have a file named "FOLLOWUPS" and you would like to changerepparttar 107891 name to "FOLLOWUP LETTERS". Selectrepparttar 107892 "FOLLOWUPS" file in your contents window (right side of Explorer window). Click onrepparttar 107893 File menu and select RENAME. The file name becomes encircled indicating you can now type inrepparttar 107894 new name. You can now type in "FOLLOWUP LETTERS" and you have successfully changedrepparttar 107895 file name.

Until you become an advanced user I would suggest that you avoid moving program and system files. However, your personal data files you can rearrange to to meet your filing needs. Selectrepparttar 107896 file or folder you want to copy or move. You can do this with more than one file or folder at a time. To select nonadjacent items, hold down CTRL key and clickrepparttar 107897 items you want to select. For adjacent items hold downrepparttar 107898 Shift key while you selectrepparttar 107899 items.

Onrepparttar 107900 Edit menu, click Copy to copyrepparttar 107901 file, or click Cut to moverepparttar 107902 file. Double-Clickrepparttar 107903 folder in which you want to place repparttar 107904 file that is being moved or copied. Onrepparttar 107905 Edit menu, click Paste. The file will now appear in its new location.

The drive and folder containingrepparttar 107906 files to be copied are calledrepparttar 107907 source drive and source folder. Respectively,repparttar 107908 drive and folder to whichrepparttar 107909 files are to be copied are called repparttar 107910 destination drive and destination folder.

The method of copying files to a floppy disk isrepparttar 107911 same procedure as copying a file to a folder. Selectrepparttar 107912 file to be copied, go torepparttar 107913 Edit menu and click Copy: Select 3 Floppy:A as your destination drive by double-clicking on its icon. On repparttar 107914 file menu select paste andrepparttar 107915 file will be copied torepparttar 107916 floppy disk. It is a wise to make backup copies of your important files on a floppy disk. Inrepparttar 107917 event of a computer crash or should you accidentally delete an file, valuable information will not be lost. To find files in Windows Explorer, click on TOOLS inrepparttar 107918 menu bar. Whenrepparttar 107919 tools drop down menu appears select FIND and then click on Files and Folders. The Find: All Files dialog box appears. Typerepparttar 107920 name ofrepparttar 107921 file you are trying to locate in repparttar 107922 Named box. Clickrepparttar 107923 Find Now button. Windows is now searching forrepparttar 107924 file indicated byrepparttar 107925 rotating magnifying glass underrepparttar 107926 New Search button.

In summation:

Windows Explorer isrepparttar 107927 application program that allows you to viewrepparttar 107928 contents ofrepparttar 107929 computer,repparttar 107930 hierarchy of folders on repparttar 107931 computer, andrepparttar 107932 files and folders in each folder.

Windows Explorer allows you to manage your electronic filing system to suit your preferences. You can copy, move, rename, or delete files and create back-up files on a floppy disk. As you create new folders, strive to develop a filing system that will allow easy access to all your computer projects.

As you create new files and folders, you many want to move them or copy them to a different location. Until you become an advanced user avoid moving program files.

Logging In Using ASP - Access2000

Written by Amrit Hallan

Continued from page 1

A few things. In order to use a database through ASP, you need to have a DNS created for that database onrepparttar server.

STORELOG.ASP should somewhat look like this:

<% dim sEmail, sPass, noError noError="y" sEmail=request.form("email") sPass=request.form("pass")

' The following lines setup a connection torepparttar 107886 DNS we created above

Dim toDatabase 'To connect torepparttar 107887 DNS Dim toRecordset 'To connect torepparttar 107888 individual tables

Set toDatabase = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection") toDatabase.Open "customers"

Set toRecordset = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset") toRecordset.Open "logins", toDatabase, 2

' 2 = Opensrepparttar 107889 recordset in "Write Mode"

' Let us say "logins" is some table you created inrepparttar 107890 database.

toRecordset.AddNew toRecordset("email")=sEmail toRecordset("password")=sPass on error resume next toRecordset.Update if err.number<>0 then ' do something if some error occurs. ' one error could be thatrepparttar 107891 email already exists inrepparttar 107892 database. noError="n" end if


Set toRecordset = Nothing


Set toDatabase = Nothing

if noError="y" then ' Ifrepparttar 107893 info was saved smoothly.

session("email")=sEmail session("pass")=sPass end if

' Here you can display some message thatrepparttar 107894 record has been saved. %>

This savesrepparttar 107895 login information of a new customer. Now, how do we use it inrepparttar 107896 future? First,repparttar 107897 login form, that could be on any page.

Remember you can use somewhat same validation Javascript here too, so I'm not repeating it, but just mentioning it.

Please login by entering your email and password.

Enter Email:

Enter Password:


Atrepparttar 107898 top ofrepparttar 107899 page, along with other ASP commands, include this too:

<% response.buffer=true %>

This is required if you want to sendrepparttar 107900 user to some page after he/she has successfully logged in.


dim sEmail, sPass, noError noError="y" sEmail=request.form("email") sPass=request.form("pass")

' The following lines setup a connection torepparttar 107901 DNS we created above

Dim toDatabase 'To connect torepparttar 107902 DNS Dim toRecordset 'To connect torepparttar 107903 individual tables

Set toDatabase = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection") toDatabase.Open "customers"

fndSQL="select * from logins where email='" & sEmail & "' and password='" & sPass & "'"

Set toRecordset=toDatabase.execute(fndSQL)

if toRecordset.eof then

response.write "Your details are not inrepparttar 107904 database, please try again, or register yourself."


session("email")=toRecordset("email") session("pass")=toRecordset("password")

end if


Set toRecordset = Nothing


Set toDatabase = Nothing

response.redirect "To some URL"


>From now onwards, whenever you want to perform some action that should only be performed ifrepparttar 107905 user is logged in, just checkrepparttar 107906 value is session("email"), like:


if session("email")<>"notlogged" then

' do things forrepparttar 107907 logged in customer


' tellrepparttar 107908 customer that he she is not logged in.

end if
