‘I never knew that’, The Calculator Trick


After a relatively quiet period, it is great to be back blogging again and sharing news and technical content relating to OpenInsight and Revelation Software in general.

OI10 is now just around the corner and I can’t wait for conference in April to see the new features, new look interface and all the good stuff coming in the new version of OpenInsight.

I hope to have more and more information about the new release of OpenInsight over the coming weeks leading up to and following the conference.  In the meantime, it is SRP and Sprezzatura that are keeping me busy with great technical content being published on their sites.

Today it is Sprezzatura’s turn and they have highlighted a little known, but highly useful tip for tracking down OLE errors in OpenInsight applications.

Tracking down OLE errors in OpenInsight can be more than a little tricky at times but last week, the guys learned that this task can be made super simple using the Windows Calculator.  As one of them said following the sharing of this tip ‘I never knew that’ and that is a phrase that I don’t often hear from the Sprezzatura boys.

The article explains how they went from a reported error of ” ” from the third party system (yes, you read that right, in it entirety the error was nothing, nada, zip) to a solution and another happy supported client.
