MongoDB and QTP

Problem: Tried connecting QTP with MongoDB [No SQL database]?

Did you know that there was a tips.txt file on your machine where QTP is installed? Navigate to the QTP installation folder Further navigate to the “dat” folder Look for a file with the name “Tips.txt”

Open this file in a text editor and enjoy tips provided by the developers themselves

Open ppt in two windows / extended windows

So here is a strange post. I was creating a deck for one of the upcoming conferences and I work on a dual monitor. Since I had done a similar talk before, I wanted to quickly refer the same.

The Problem: Cannot open two instances of ppt , for comparison / editing.

Why?: Natively PowerPoint is a single instance application (you can only have
one running instance at any time).


Workaround? : If you want to edit both the presentations on two different monitors:
 you wouldneed to:
Open both the presentationsRestore the main power-point windowNow stretch the main window across two monitors From the ribbon /menu go to View | "Window" | Select  "Arrange All" to arrange your open presentations side-by-side.  That is some testing with power-point :)
