How to edit entitys attributes directly?

I messed up with entity mappings and ended up with errror: attribute not found.

How can I manually remove attribute from entity?

Tried export -edit -import but it seems not to be the right way.

You will first need to remove the "bad" mapping that you created.  Since it 
is referncing the field, you need to do that prior to trying to remove the 
field.  You also need to remove it from any forms & views that may be 
displaying it.

The customization Import will not remove fields (as you have discovered). 
That is done as a safety feature to rpevent accidental loss of data (imagine 
accidnelty importing an old file only to have it delete data on you).

Direct access to GP database.
One of our .NET client application needs to connect to the GP database using Users created from GP as a login credential. Basically, the client app will ask the user to enter userID and password and use these as credential in connection string. Since I am aware that GP stores user's password encrypted in the DB, I need to find a way to encrypt the password before creating a connection string; and not updating the user's password using Enterprise manager.

Cannot edit Business Unit Name
I need to edit our Business Unit Name since our company name has changed. The Business Unit form does not allow this. There are no other business units or parent comapnies in our CRM 3.0 installation. I have an Admin role. Any advice is appreciated.

Cannot enable editing of some fields
I am working with a application that I did not create (Access 2007) I cannot seem to be able to allow editing of some fields on a subform. I changed the properties to Enabled (yes) and Locked (No); but I am still unable to edit the desired fields? What are the values in the ControlSource property for those fields? If they begin with an = character, they are calculated expressions that cannot be edited. If they are field names and those fields are autonumber fields or calculated fields in a query, they cannot be edited. -- Ken Snell

updating chart using edit query
Hi I import a column of date into column A which is linked to a chart. When I update the column of data the chart updates automatically. Great! Except not all columns of data I import have the same number of items. So I am forever adjusting the range the chart refers to by clicking the line on the chart and then pulling the handle on the blue box that surrounds the cells from the previous data range (eg. A1:A25, and getting the blue box to just surround the new data range (eg. A1:A20). Can I get the chart to recognise that I want it to reflect only cells with data in them (e.g. A1...

Then copy it, highlight the cells you want to minus 90 from, and click EDIT, and then PASTE SPECIAL. Towards the bottom of the screen you will see a plus option which you click on and then push OK (or make the cell 90 and use the minus option). If this is confusing you can watch...
