How to install Tridion Databases in Microsoft Azure SQL

I am trying to install SDL Web 8.5 in Microsoft Azure, for which I am planning to host all Tridion DB’s in Microsoft Azure SQL Database. As far as I know we used to run PowerShell commands to install it on Microsoft SQL Servers like .Install Content Manager database.ps1 , but how can I run these commands for Azure SQL DB or what actually needs to be done to create Tridion databases in Azure SQL ?

if i create Tridion DB’s in Azure, how would Tridion Application (CME) interact them?

Microsoft word 2010 text wrap in table

I noticed that I have two tables in my word document. One I made and one I copied it from somewhere. The one I copied, when I resize my table, the cell text automatically wraps around if the width is not enough. (Not hyphenation, just wraps). The one I copied does not do that. However, I don’t notice anything different between the two. The row size specifications in both are unchecked. Where is the setting for this?

How to Install SDL web 8.5 in Microsoft Azure

I have SDL Web 8.5 installation media for trial purpose. I want to install SDL Web 8.5 in Azure, is there any installation guide/steps available? I have done on-premise installation a few years back, but this time i want to host it on Azure for learning purposes. I am thinking of creating a Single machine Application, like Windows Server as a virtual machine, will install SQL in the same machine, and will run the database script to make Tridion DB’s available in my Virtual Machine/Server. Will Host Tridion on the same machine.

Before anything to start is there anything specific which i need to take care? or any installation guide/help to host it in azure is available ?

How to mount a Microsoft basic data partition

I have a Dell Inspiron 5568 laptop that is no longer booting up under Windows 10. The native (Dell) recovery options are not allowing me to backup any of my data prior to attempting a factory reset. Consequently, I have changed the BIOS settings for “legacy boot” and booted up from an Ubuntu Live 16.04 USB stick. Here is what I see

 parted -l reports

 Partition 1  524Mb  FAT32 EFI System partition             boot,esp
 Partition 2 134Mb         Microsoft reserved partition     msftres
 Parition 3  495Gb         Basic data partition             msftdata
 ...
 Parition 8  148Gb         Basic data partition             msftdata
 Parition 9  472Mb  ntfs                                    hidden,dflag
 Two more hidden ntfs paritions

fdisk -l reports

/dev/sda1    500Mb  EFI System
/dev/sda2    128Mb  Microsoft reserved
/dev/sda3    460G   Microsoft basic data
...
/dev/sda8    138Gb  Microsoft basic data
/dev/sda9    450M   Windows recovery envirionment
Two others

Before I attempt to do anything else I would like to mount /dev/sda6 and get a safe backup of some critical files I have there. The trouble is it is not clear to me how I mount that partition. I tried

mkdir /media/windows
sudo ntfs-3g -o force,rw /dev/sda6 /media/windows

only to be told that it is not an NTFS parition. If memory serves me right when I did the parititiong I had used the Windows 10 default which I think is FAT32. So I did try

mount -t vfat /dev/sda6 /media/windows

but that yields the error

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda6,
       missing codepage or helper program or other error

…very helpful 🙂 Can anyone here tell me what that might be?

Libre Office and proprietary Microsoft file formats

Libre Office can open proprietary Microsoft file formats (although some features are unsupported). But how was it able to achieve this? Did they reverse engineer these formats from binaries?

In this article the author points out the complications associated with Microsoft Office formats. I was wondering how did Libre Office achieve this feat?

How to convert a Persian pdf file to Microsoft word format?

I have a pdf file which is Persian script and it is a Right-to-Left.
Since Persian uses UTF-8 format therefore I can’t convert it into a plain text in Microsoft Word, also I can’t copy-paste the text resulting unreadable characters.
I have tried a lot of softwares such as unipdf and e-Pdf Converter however after the conversion still the characters are not displayed properly.
I even tried OCR but again same problem appeared.
The pdf does’nt have any password or restrictions.

Does anyone have any other ideas?

Edit: I actually tried creating a file in MS Word and converting it to a PDF, after that again I had the same problem with the PDF file.(even the encoding was known)

Dashboard question on microsoft project

Completion % captures the current progress.. I understand that. Is there a way to come up with completion % if all work (hypothetically) was completed on time as of today?

e.g., Assume the total duration is 400 hrs. Today, the total duration scheduled to be completed was 200 hrs, however only 50% of the work was done. Therefore, %complete is 25% and, if the task was completed on time, then the %complete should be 50%.

How do we capture the latter completion %?
