Checking Activity Status within Rule


Within a rule, how do we determine the value of an Activity's status in a
Check Condition (if statement), not in a Wait Condition?

For example, we'd like to do something like:

If Activity.status=completed then
     do this...
     do that...

At the moment, we can't figure out how to check the Activity's status
because it seems that an Activity is not considered an Object, so we are
limited to Waiting until our Activity (Task) is Completed and then kicking
off the next Activity (Task), without checking the Activity status.  We
assume that if the Task is Canceled instead of Completed, that the Wait
loop will never finish and the next Activity will never be kicked off.

But there should be a better way to do this!

So right now, because we can't figure out how to check the Activity
status, we have:

Task: X
          Task: X is completed
End Wait
Task: Y

But what we'd really like to do is:

Task X
          Task: X is completed
End Wait
If Task X. status = Completed then 
      Task Y

Thanks for any light you can shed on this!

Check names not working for multiple address books / contacts
Hello! I have upgraded from outlook 2003 to outlook 2007, my contacts are stored in pst. I used to be able to search for a name via check names and it displayed me all the results from global address list and from my contacts, but now it only does one. It does not matter which one I set in the checking order, whichever is top will be the one that provides the result. I would like it to show me both results, how would I go about to set that up?

Authorizing checks with RMS
I recently removed PCCharge and setup my syetm to work with a preferred merchant provider to allow native processing of credit & debit cards.

Thanks, Richard Unfortunately, it's not. PC Charge is the only option for check processing in RMS as far as I know.

Active / Dynamic Filtered List (changes w/ change in cell value)
I'd like to be able to have a filtered list change AUTOMATICALLY based on a criteria value (entered in a cell outside the filtered data range). What is the simplest way to do this? Autofilter is close, but it will not update the results dynamically. You can use programming to update the filter if a cell on the worksheet is changed. There are examples here: Under Filters, look for 'Product List by Week Number' and 'Filter Rows for Text String' wrote: > I'd like to be able to have a filt...

Printing Checks
I'm having a problem printing checks from Money 2003. I have three accounts that come up in one .mny file. Two of the accounts use 3-on-a-page checks and I want the name and address printed on them. One account uses voucher checks and needs to be nudged a little south. When I go to print checks I have to be aware of what account I'm in and change the settings by hand to make sure the checks print correctly. How can I make the check-print settings stick with the account I'm using. It's a pain to have to remember every time. I'm frequently forgetting and screwing up a pag...
