In my previous blog I talked about the new features in Outlook. One of the features is the ability to Insert a table Into an Outlook Email. Let’s see how we can do this?
- Click on “New Message”.
- Activate the Message tab.
- Click on Table
- Select the Rows/Columns that you need
- And then click on “Insert Table”
There maybe times when you need to create a new table that uses the same structure as an existing table. I had this situation today, where I was working on a Test table in a database and then I needed to create a new table that would be used in production. And obviously the columns and primary key had to be the same. There are many ways where this could be achieved. One of the ways is to do it manually, which is fine until you are looking at a table that has 20 columns with constraints in almost every other column!
The simpler and faster way to replicate the structure of an existing table would be to use a SQL Query. And by a query I don’t mean a complicated, convoluted query! It is in fact avery simple and straightforward.
This is the Query you need to use when you would want to create a new table that has the same structure of an existing table-
Create Table NewTable_Name Like OldTable_Name
Where NewTable_Name is the Name of the New Table
OldTable_Name is the name of the Old Table
The Handwriting Recognition Service detects handwritten text. It helps one digitize notes. All you would have to do is take a picture of the text and feed it to the Azure Service. The Application would then detect the words written.
I would encourage you all to try this service. It is free. Take an Image of your handwriting and upload it to this website
The short answer is to use a different port number. For Instance in Angular, the default port number for an application is 4200. If you want to run another application at the same time, you would have to use a different port number. Which brings us to a question-
How to change the port number for an application?
Different frameworks have their own ways to change port numbers. In Angular, one would have to type this command in the terminal in order to change the port number-
ng serve –port port_number
where port_number is the number that you Intend the application to use.
Notice that there are two “dashes” before port
If you want the application to use port number 4401, then you would do this-
ng serve –port 4401
The Azure Cognitive Services offers different API’s that use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. One of the API’s that they offer is the Computer Version API. Using the Computer Vision API, you could analyze text from an Image. In other words, you could extract text from an Image.
This Image returns-“If we did, All, The Things….” I encourage you all to check this out by uploading Images of your own.

How many times have you gone to a website only to find out that there is a video that is playing on the background? It can definitely get quite annoying or embarrassing depending on where you are and how high the volume on your laptop is! Fortunately we have a way to tackle this problem.
