validate a field based on sum of other fields
I have to assign commission to agents for each "order". I can have anywhere
from 1 agent at 100% commission to 5 agents with every possible combination
of percentages. Obviously, I need the percentage entries to only add up to
100 and I'd like to force the user to adjust the figures until they total 100.
Firstly, am I right in assuming it would be better to be assigning the
agents to the orderIDs in separate records: OrderID, Agent, Agent Percentage
(as opposed to having one record contain the OrderID, Agent1,
Agent1Percentage, Agent2, Agent2Percentage, Agent3, Agent3Pe...Pivot Table Calculated field #3
I have a pivot table with columns for No's, Yes's and Grand Total. I would like to calculate the % of Yes's by
dividing the Yes's by the Grand total. Can someone give me an easy explanation of how to do that or a source? I have tried every thing I can think of and the directions I have found have not helped.... Thanks, Ann
To calculate total percent Yes, you could use the GETPIVOTDATA function
in a formula outside the pivot table. For example:

the user states that she has the option to change the formatting of the copy

...Locking Field position on screen.
I have created a simple form in Word 2007 with maybe 2 or 3 fields across and
3 or 4 fields down, but my problem is I would like to be able to lock the
field positions in place on the screen. When I type in a field, the field to
the left moves. I need to lock the position. Can this be done.
Most forms designers put form fields in table cells of a fixed dimension.

Hello - I have set up Intercompany processing between two of our companies.

Here is my situation:
1) A page on IE will be open, and I will have a cursor in a field on the

action), and pastes

However when run from a COM client the serializer constructor produces a

The serialiser seems to ignore the obvious codebase of the base class as the

Through either VBA or Modifier, is it possible to make a field that is
required in Great plains by design to not be required but be optional instead?
I doubt it. The best that I could come up with was to just have VBA fill
the required field with a "dummy" piece of information and move on.
Any other ideas?
I suppose the only other way is through Dexterity.
The field is the "Interview Range from 1 to" in the HR Interview Setup
window. I just decided to have VBA fill it with "01".

...How to choose the best investment option?
It is widely known how difficult is to choose a low-risk or risk-free online investment option nowadays, especially for small and medium investors.
Almost every day we hear about scamming and unhonesty here and there.
And situation seems uncertain, if we are not monitoring the market day by day.
From that point, basic principle to choose the right investment option would be a contact with the owner.
If the owner has contact address (not e-mail only) and he is open for meeting and is ready to send you company papers, so such option may be a great choice.
As for me, I know one such opportunity:...Joining fields into one field dependent on value of another field
