Activity Report Problem

We have added two custom fields to most of the activity forms (appt, phone 
call, email, task). We need to create a report that shows these activities 
plus their custom fields. Seemed pretty straightforward until I tried to JOIN 
all these entities back to the main Activity entity. The query returns no 
data in CRM nor in SQL using the INNER JOIN approach on the respective 
activityid fields. It works with one such as Appt JOINED to Activity, but as 
soon as we add another entity (phone call) it stops returning data. 

Do I need to modify the entity relationships to get this working?

The added fields will appear in the xxxExtensionBase table.
If you wish to list multiple types of activity you will have to do a
UNION SELECT for each type.

I was trying to use the Filtered Views since they contain the custom fields. 
Could I get these to work with the UNION SELECT or do I have to use the 
ExtensionBase tables? 

Thanks for your reply,

problem w/seperating e-mail from different accounts
I am currently using outlook 2002 and am having problems seperating e-mail I am receiving. First, I have two different accounts with each receiving e-mail from a different server. Second, I have my rules set up to put e- mail from each account into a seperate folder. The problem is that the program is putting e-mail from both servers into each server's individual folder. Anyone know how to correctly setup the program to seperate the email? Try adding "stop processing more rules" to the end of each of your rules so that only one of the rules gets a chance to act on each par...

My employees need an end of shift report from receipt printer.
I need my employees to be able to print out their sales at shift end. We just bought Microsoft POS 2.0, and it doesn't seem to have the information I need. I make my daily reports by using the print outs each employee has at the end of their shift. It has sales by department and sales tax and COGS. This is all information I need to generate reports for my books and to verify their tills. Also, we have overnight empolyees so information overlaps 2 days.

Activity views 09-26-05
Folks When viewing the activities on an account or quote, there appears to be no obvious way to include the date of the activity in the view so it is difficult to determine when the activity was done - resulting in us having to open each and every activity to find the relevant one - and this is time consuming. Any ideas? Regards Gavin The current release of Microsoft CRM does not allow you to customize the activity views at least in a supported fashion. If you scan the archives of this group at for activity view you will find some unsupported methods. Microsoft CR...

Great Plains Reports and Printing
We are printing our Great Plains Report to a High Speed Dot Matrix Line Printer. By default, the font and pitch are quite small, and if we try to increase the size on the control panel of the printer, it has no effect. My question is this, in order to get font sizes to come out larger on our Great Plains Reports, do we have to change each individual field in the Report Designer? Does the Report Designer settings override whatever settings the printer may have? Thanks The font size for Text reports (especially when the size is set to Best Text Fit) is decided by the size of the repor...

Comments problem
I've created a number of comments. When I position the comments where I want them, they only reflect their positions on "Show" or "Edit" comment. All the comments default to the same relationship to the cells when you pass over them. This is a problem because I've also used data vaildation (with lists) on these cells and you can't display the comment with the list pulled down at the same time because the comments are tool close to the validated cell. Thanks in adavance. The comment usually appears to the right of the cell, and should still allow you to see t...

Problem printing JPEGs in reports
I have a database built from scratch in Access 2007 that includes an attachment field which is used to store JPEG photos of people's faces that are printed onto ID cards. It has been working perfectly until recently when the photos get distorted (they look almost as though they have gone into 4-bit colour mode with lots of dithering). When you view the report in 'Report View' the picture looks perfect, but when you go to 'Print Preview' the distortion occurs. It is nothing to do with the images themselves, as ones that have printed perfectly before are now distorted....

For most types of source data you can choose how to summarize data (for example, by sum, average, or count). A data field usually summarizes numbers, but it can also summarize text.
