    Hi Ken.

    I am writing from Azerbaijan and most of the sites do not deliver hard copy to my country. Thus, I want to buy book's pdf version. But when I click the link above to purchase the link does nothing but showing little window. I click on "continue shopping" but it does nothing.

    Can you help me.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for your interest in the book! I work with Ken here at Excelguru and will take a look into how we can set up a PDF purchase for you. I will email you directly with the details.

    Cheers, Rebekah

    Let me know,
    Hi Ken, I'm having the same issue as alazyworkaholic where I cannot connect using the credentials in chapter 8.

    "Unable to connect
    We encountered an error while trying to connect
    Details: "Microsoft SQL: A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)""

    Is there some setting I need to change?

    Hi Russ, this is more than likely a firewall issue on your side. Can you try from another location (maybe from home) and see if it persists?
