Help needed... This is way off topic but I'm in a bind...

I need help converting some BDB files (MS Works Database) to something more
portable, such as Excel, CSV, whatever.  I'm hoping it's as simple as get
file, open it, save as, email back to me.

Please email me offlist if you can help.

<tip type="SQL Server" author="Joshua Olson">
Sometimes SQL Server will seem to not work on Port 1433 even though every
setting you see implies that it should work... The network libraries are
installed, the TCP/IP protocol is set up, etc.

Use "netstat.exe -an" to confirm nothing is listening on port 1433.

Then, open up regedit and go to 

Make sure TcpDynamicPorts is blank
Make sure TcpHideFlag is 0
Make sure TcpPort is 1433
If they don't match the above, make the changes.  Stop and restart sql.
Use netstat -an and confirm that the server is listening on TCP

Maybe, just maybe, your problems will be fixed.
