Re: Importing data from Google Sheets (problem with returns in cells) [wrong attachment, now updated]

looking at this more closely, i'd say export as csv and parse. when i do that, b2 gets quotes around it, which tells you it needs special handling.

Re: Importing data from Google Sheets (problem with returns in cells) [wrong attachment, now updated]

So merggoogle is out, right? How about generating another sheet using the QUERY and IMPORTDATA functions? I would use the FORMAT clause with the QUERY to surround each column value with another delimiter character. The original csv syntax was for each cell to be surrounded by quotes and separated by...

Re: How to set up multiple parallel running processes

isnt tsnet asynchronous? if it is then you get multithreadedness by effect. scheduling can be done lots of ways. i have a cron-ish library at https://github.com/macMikey/mikeys-cron-library . it is designed to be a levure helper but there is no reason why it cant be tweaked so that it is independent...

Re: Add Repeat option for mobileCreateLocalNotification

Re: BBC article about HyperCard

I don't think I agree with LC's marketing staff and skill or lack thereof (but their behavior in this case is odd). I had a couple of conversations with Kevin a couple of years ago about this topic, and I was surprised at how sophisticated they seemed to be with their approach. They still should hav...

Re: BBC article about HyperCard

It's PR and Marketing. What wouldn't you say? Occasionally said individuals converse with news agencies, especially if they've placed an ad with said agency at any time in the last 20 years, because the news agency will be spamming the company regularly. - or - you could go the Wendy's Twitter feed ...

Re: Adding days to a date

Fun fact and imho a better way to do date math: use dateItems. All math works great and no extra math like dealing with seconds

Code: Select all

put "4/7/19" into tDate
convert tDate to dateItems
add 365 to item 3 of tDate
convert tDate to short date
