I love this database! Thanks again for putting it together for us all - it's incredibly useful.
FYI, I think I've uncovered a minor bug - the Repeats tab isn't working (for me, at least). The embedded view reports 'no category found' so I looked at the design to see what category it was looking for. The cat is the sessionID (with the R2/R1 stripped) but the specified by is 'embeddedBySpeaker' instead of 'embeddedBySessionID'. Switching the view makes the embedded view display the way I would expect it to.
I was looking for the repeats of Andrew's 'zero to hero' session when I noticed it, of course - can't miss that one...

Thanks, I'll fix it for Version 2. That problem kept creeping in, and I finally found I had the same alias for both embedded views, but I guess I missed fixing one of the places. Rats!

You're gonna hate me, I'm afraid. I think I found another minor issue. Some of the documents don't have all the data fields (SessTimes, specifically, which the tabbed table hide formula relies on). So the Repeats tab is visible even though there's only one instance of that session. The Guru track seems to be the only place the issue occurs.
Can you tell I'm obsessed with the repeating sessions? Heh...
265.4. Ben Langhinrichs (01/07/2005 08:21 AM)
That one I am aware of. It is also a problem with the CertFX Certification Bootcamp sessions, as I hand entered them, and the script is what adds the SessTimes field. I'll probably add logic such that if there is no SessTimes field, the Repeats also doesn't show. or maybe I'll do it right and write an agent that adds them. We'll see.
Thanks! Any bug reports are welcomed.

Yeah, I thought those were probably manual entries. Minor annoyance associated with that issue? The Add to my Calendar agent doesn't work - it relies on one of those fields (SessDates), but it doesn't error out if they aren't there so you wind up creating an calendar doc with a StartDate that only contains time data.

Thanks, again, for another year of a great service. I want you to know that Genii [b]always[/b] gets a mention when I'm discussing rich text manipulation.
