Projects in CRM3?
I just downloaded and ran the VPC-demo of CRM3.
I cant see any projects or the ability to create projects with project
description, managers, documents pertaining to the project, activities in
the project, and so on.
Anyone with any info and/or experience with this in CRM3?

You can accomplish this using the functionality MS CRM 3.0 provides for
customized entities. We have created a "Project" entity using MS CRM
tools and defined all the fields we require for our internal projects.
The result is actually pretty impresive. So, even thou...CRM 3.0 Problem report setup

extremely slowdown and performance degradation. We do not know where to look
for the cause. We have seen that the SQL server goes up to very high
CPU-levels when even the simplest action is done by a CRM user.
An...Customizations in v3.0 during upgrade
When you upgrade v1.2 to v3.0, which customization prevail in 3.0? Will the
customizations be the exactly like they were in 1.2?
Example: Say in the account form for 1.2, I deleted all fields expect for
five of them (any five for this example), when I upgrade to 3.0, will there
still only be five fields on the account form?
Modified forms will be upgraded.

Good Day Board,
I'm beginning to feel the strain of installing this CRM program and I
would like a little more assistance here. I have finally gotten my SQL
2005 server installed and updated. Now I'm trying to install the CRM 3.0
server software now and when it reaches the dialog screen labeled
"Specify Reporting Services Server" I hit on a snag.
The "Install new Reporting Services server" radio button is grayed out
and I do not have a reporting server. When I try to move pass this
screen I get "The specified Report Server URL syntax is not valid.
Would anyyone know if the eXtender SOP Reports option is still available for

We are currently on GP8 and have one report that was created with the

When I look on the eOne downloads page I do not see the option for GP10.

I am working on an upgrade of 1.2 to 3.0 on an SBS2003 box, and it has not
been fun. Major headaches, restores, reboots, and reinstalls.
My question to the group: Has anyone had a clean and easy upgrade? I've seen
lots of posts here about problems with the upgrade process, and I'm just
wondering how prevalent these headaches are, and whether or not the upgrade
has gone smoothly for anyone? I'd be interested to know what your environment
looks like, especially if you have not had any problems with the upgrade

We finally have to bite the bullet and upgrade from Dynamics 7.0 to GP

Question is, for a network administrator who is not a GP user, how much
time should I expect this to take? And will I need to involve GP
users? If it's going to take a whole day, I'd rather pay a consultant
to do it.
Thanks for your advice.
Users generally aren't involved. How long it will take depends on how many
company databases you have and what size they are and whether or not you
have any 3rd party products installed. If you don't have an onsite GP

Does anyone know if there is a "Quicken 99 Basic" File
Convertor for Money 5.0, and if so how do I get it???
Well, since v. 5 of Money was released in 1997 (fall '96 probably) and
Quicken 99 was released, well, in 1999, it seems improbable that such a
converter would ever have existed. Generally one doesn't want to covert a
very obsolete version date file for one obsolete application to an even more
obsolete data file format for an even more obsolete alternate application.
But to each his own. Good luck with this requirement.

They are built with doc/view and the data is displayed in several

So far so good. Now there is one application that uses an extra view

I am trying to make a assignment report of To Do List inside of a resource

no data to be printed, even though I can see there is a lot of data! I think
this is the best report I could do it to show my resources their tasks as I

In a Resource Pool, only the Resource Usage View shows assignment data. The
task usage does not because the pool has no tasks.
Try the Resource Usage View and see how you go.
