I have been working with GIS and MapInfo Professional since 1996 when I joined COWI, the Danish distributor of the MapInfo products.

I have worked as end user digitizing paper plans into MapInfo Pro. I have worked as a developer building commercial products as well as customer specfic applications using MapBasic and .NET.

I have also done a lot of training, mostly in the advanced part of MapInfo Pro, such as SQL, Connecting to and using databases and MapBasic.

Currently I work as a Senior Systems Engineer with Pitney Bowes Software who develops MapInfo Professional and the other products in the MapInfo portfolio.

comment Techniques for reducing a MapInfo TAB's file size without losing too much integrity?
"reduced for use" ... Can you elaborate a bit more on this? Is the size of the table close to 2 GB? Is the width of each row close to 4 KB (with the later versions 64KB)? Are you having performance issues? We need a bit more information in order to give you some useful advice

comment How do I get value from edittext or text field in MapBasic
MapBasic has some neat function for formatting numbers (FormatNUmber$()) and deformating numbers DeformatNumber$(). They might come in handy here, too. The first will add grouping digits and decimal digits set in the Region Settings to the value and return a string with these. The second will assume the string has grouping digits and decimal digits and convert these back. You still need to use the Val() function to cast it to a numeric value.

comment MapInfo Universal Translator turning integer columns to decimal
Well, no. It's says that shape files are using Number(11,0) in stead of Integer. Not sure how big a difference that is. I also wonder if MapInfo Pro by default will interpret Number(11,0) as Integer if you import a Shape file into MapInfo Pro

comment File Conversion using ogr2ogr gui
So UT took more time, but did it at least generate tab files that could be opened by MapInfo Pro. You might have run into issues with the above because the tables didn't meet some of the limitations that the tab format has, such as character fields can be wider than 254.

comment Adding SQL Trigger to update field on INSERT (multiple rows)
Too bad you aren't able to add the Identity type to your AddressID column as that would make SQL Server manage this for you
