CSS Problem on ASPX page


I am having a problem with space around a div. The page looks perfect in the VS internal browser, but there is space at the top between the body and the div for the page layout in IE and FireFox. I tried everything I know by setting margins to 0 and padding to 0 for the body, div, form, almost everything and there is still space. The wierd thing is that the space shows the background color when I set the padding for the div#page to 0, and the space is the div#page background color when the padding is set to a value.

I must be missing something. I looked at the page's HTML after it is rendered from the server and it inserts a dive with a hidden control for the viewstate. I thought this might be causing the problem so I set the margin and padding for all divs to 0, but it did nothing.

The code for the simple page and CSS is provided below.

It appears the problem disappears and the page looks as I intended when I use the Compatibility View in IE8.

Thanks for the help in advance,
-- Chris

Openquery - truncation problem (converting data from Oracle 10g to SQL 2005)


I am having problems with data truncating when inserting into a SQL 2005 db from Oracle 10g- using openquery and a linked server.   For instance, if I run something like:

insert dbo.CWDocumentStaging
select * from openquery(LK_Snomass,'select RSFORM.REPRESENTATION as REPRESENTATION

The results of the blob data are only 202 hexademical characters in length.  And then when I convert it to varchar, the results are cut-off.  For instance, on a particular test record that I converted, here is what I have in the SQL database (using):

select convert(varchar(max), DOCUMENT_TEXT), DOCUMENT_TEXT from dbo.CWDocumentStaging

I get the following:

for Document_Text, I get the following:


then for convert(varchar(max), DOCUMENT_TEXT):

this old man, he played one, he played knick-knack on my thumb with a knick-knack paddy whack give a

If I insert the data running the query against the linked server directly, the data does not truncate

Problem converting varchar values to numeric format for comparison


I've got an SQL-2008 database containing our network inventory (it's from LanSweeper - a low-end and very recommendable network management tool). In a table are all logins with the IP-address of that moment, where the IP-address is defined as VARCHAR(15).

I need to compare IP addresses with those in the table defining the IP segments, where the segment addresses are also defined as VARCHAR(15).

In order to be able to compare reliably, I need to convert the addresses to numeric format. I cooked up the following SELECT statement for that:

SELECT TOP (100) PERCENT Ipaddress, (
CAST(SUBSTRING(Ipaddress, 1, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, 1) - 1) AS DEC) * 1000000000 +
CAST(SUBSTRING(Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, 1) + 1, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, 1) + 1) - 1) AS DEC) * 1000000) +
CAST(SUBSTRING(Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, 1) + 1) + 1, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, 1) + 1) + 1) - 1) AS DEC) * 1000 +
CAST(SUBSTRING(Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, CHARINDEX('.', Ipaddress, 1) + 1) + 1) + 1, 3) AS DEC) AS IP, Computername, logontime, Username, ADsite,
FROM dbo.tblCPlogoninfo

Code works on aspx but not ascx


Not sure which category to put this question in, so I will put it in here.

Just to give you an idea of the layout of my solution, I have the main project, along with 2 class libraries, BLL and DAL.  (Business Logic Layer and Data Access Layer)

The BLL refers to the DAL and the main project refers to the BLL.

I had a test website and the code worked fine, but the same code will not work on the real project. The only difference is that in the test project, the code was on an aspx code behind, whereas in the real project, it is an ascx code behind (Web User Control )

The code is:

Dim connectionString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("ASPNETDBConnectionString").ConnectionString
        Dim recordEntry As New UserRecord(connectionString)
        recordEntry.UserName = "TestName"
        recordEntry.BMI = bMI
        recordEntry.BMR = bMR
        recordEntry.FTM = fTM
        recordEntry.TDEE = tDEE
        recordEntry.TodayDate = dateForToday

Dim connectionString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("ASPNETDBConnectionString").ConnectionString
