Hi Ilja,

To do this, you will need a unique ID against each Contact and Account.

Looking at a very simplfied version, the concept is ...

--- Contact.csv

Contact Number	First Name	               Last Name	         Parent Account	
100		Contact A		- Bob		ACC-001	
101		Contact B		- Tim		ACC-001
102		Contact C		- Jo		ACC-002
103		Contact D		- Jane		ACC-003

--- Account.csv

Account Number	Name		Primary Contact	
ACC-001		Company 1	100	
ACC-002		Company 2	102
ACC-003		Company 3	103

Hope this helps.

Difficulty Aligning Series Data With Proper Dates
I ‘m building a column graph using Excel 2007 and I’m having difficulty aligning a series of data with the proper dates. I have 2 series of data – Series 1: Includes a value for each quarter in 2009 (e.g., Mar-09, Jun-09, etc). Series 2: Includes a value for each quarter in 2010 (e.g., Mar-10, Jun-10, etc). After creating each series, I select the appropriate dates (Series 1 – 2009 dates / Series 2 – 2010 dates). The first issue that I’m having is that when I select the second set of dates (for Series 2), it overrides the first – so the x-axis initially shows 2009 dates, but then ...

MSComm use in VC 6.0
Hello. I am using MSComm in my VC 6.0 application, for using the COM1, and COM2, etc... ports. (It has a telephone glyph - the activeX name is : Microsoft communication control).

More flexible License manager
We have recently added a single Sales Professional License to our CRM installation but rather than be able to add a single license to our existing license count we had to first remove the old license and then add a new license with the existing count+1. This meant having to note down exactly what users currently had licenses, remove the old license, install new license and then individually re-add the license back to the user. We only have 14 users but if this were a bigger install it could become quiet tedious having to do this everytime we add a new license. ---------------- This po...

What's the easiest way to develop GP 9.0 add-ons?
We want to develop some GP 9.0 add-ons having new tables in database, new logic and functions. Also need these add-ons integrated with GP seamlessly. What's the easiest way to do so?

export public folder data?
Am in the process of performing an Alternate server recovery of an Exchange 2003 Information Store. The reason being that on the current server all the email has dissappeared from the public folder mail folders...its a very strange situation indeed. Hoping that by restoring an earlier backup to a different machine we can see if the emails will return. If they do, is there a way I could export the contents of these folders back into the current info store? I gather that Exmerge will only work on Mailboxes and not Public Folders...

How to organize data?
I am a frustrated Excel newbie. I grit my teeth every time I have to use Excel. But I need to create a small database of records and chart it's monthly progression, and I think Excel is probably the best program for the job. Only, I don't know who to do this. Please bear with me as I really need help with this. Say that I have a short list of vendors in different cities. For each vendor I have a total # of items in their inventory and another # of the # of items sold from the inventory, and a percentage of that.

Selecting specific data #2
Hi everyone I have another little problem. I have got a list of 20 items on sheet1, Cells A1 - A20 (numbered 1 - 20) and Cells B1 - B20 are items relating to that number, ie, number 1 = Concrete, number 2 = walls, and so on. Now on sheet 2 I have a table, again cell range A1:B20. I would like to know a formula so that when I enter a number in to column A, the corresponding item to that number appears in column B. ie, if I enter number 8 in Cell A1 on sheet 2, then I would like Floor to appear in Cell B1. Does this make sense? -- Thanks in advance for your help Lee Hi Lee Data range i...

A way to detect macros? (not document macros)
We're writing an application that will be particularly vulnerable to attacks by macro programs (you know those apps that open up your app and type in text, etc..) Is there a way to detect their behaviour and perhaps block them? Thanks, Roger Short answer: No. Make sure you have good security, good AV, good anti spyware s/w and do not run with privilege. There are so many ways for such macros / spyware apps to operate that to attempt block them is an exercise in futility.

What was your data migration experience for MS CRM 3.0?
Has anyone used DMF 3.0 to migrate data into CRM using its wizards or stored proceedures? What happened and how did you do it?

data file: how to start its application
Hello! I have a byte array in memory for a file and also its filename (actually a mail attachment). Now I want to "open" this file. In case of a "*.doc" file I have to find the association (winword), run that program and give it a path to my memory or something like that. I think the simplest way to achieve this is to save the data into a temp file (GetTempPath + actual file name, overwriting any previous one), and then running RunCmd somehow and Windows knows what to do. I know how to write the file, but a RunCmd command doesn't exist or I haven't found some...
