Mandatory linking to Parent when Outlook contact is tracked in CRM

When a new contact is made in the Outlook client, two additional functions 
‘Track in CRM’ button and ‘Parent’ look-up button are available.   Pressing 
the ‘Track in CRM’ button and selection of a parent account ensure that the 
new contact gets linked to the account and is visible in the account contacts 
list.   However, if the parent account is not selected, then the contact 
remains ‘orphaned’, which violates a mandatory requirement for us.  Is there 
a way that on selecting ‘Track in CRM’ button in the Outlook client, 
selection of a parent account be made mandatory?

Migration from Eudora to Outlook
Is it possible to move (import) a message store and address book from Eudora 4 to Outlook 2003? If so, can someone give me a concise summary of the process? I'm helping someone who's getting a new computer with Office 2003, their old Pentium II computer had Eudora 4.x on it, which I've never used.

Mandatory and optional formula
I am trying to figure out how to write a formula where certain things are mandatory and others are optional. Say I have cells A1, A2, A3, A4 and A5. A5 is where I want the result that will either be "N" or "PRE". I want a formula that says If EITHER A1 and A2 equal "N' or "PRE" and if BOTH A3 and A4 equal "N" or "PRE", then A5 will equal "PRE", otherwise A5 will equal "N". I assume there is a way to nest an if/and with an "if/or" but can't seem to get it to work! "Patrick"...

Outlook 97 accessing Outlook 2000 PAB's
Does anyone know whether the PAB file structure changed between OL97 and OL2000? I have a client who needs to be able to access Contacts created in the past with OL2000 and now needs to open them via OL97 and seems to get "VBScript compatibility errors" whilst opening the Contact. The answer is probably self evident, but confirmation would be great! steve <anonymous@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote: > Does anyone know whether the PAB file structure changed > between OL97 and OL2000? > > I have a client who needs to be able to access Contacts > created...

restoring CRM databases
I am working on our data migration for a new CRM implementation. I do not have a test environment so I was thinking of doing the following 1. Backing up CRM databas 2. Migrating a subset of our source data into CRM to see how the process work 3. Restoring CRM database, essentially deleting the test data migratio Does anybody see any issues with this? Is restoring a database an acceptable method in CRM? I know you're not allowed to externally touch the SQL data, but is restoring a db considered "sound" practice? Thanks. That's what I've been doing, so I'd be int...

Using Category in outlook 2007
I have been catergorizing my emails for months. Recently, when i tried to categorize my email, an error message pops up - "the attachment size exceeds the allowable limit" Does anyone has the same problem and how to resolve it? Thanks in advance.

Linking charts #3
Hi, I'm wondering if I can have a chart on one workbook page linked to a chart on another workbook page (it will be the same chart derived from the same source data), and when I refresh the data, both charts will update. Here's why: I have the data and 1st version of chart in a "working" section of the workbook. Then I have a "report" view of the chart that need to be a certain size- this is the 2nd copy of the working graph. Currently I've been copying and pasting the "working" chart into the "report" chartbut that is kind of a pain. ...

Okay, when I got the above message I googled like a good'un and found the "outlook.exe /resetnavpane' solution. But - I now have to type that in every time I start Outlook.

links do not work
I recently switched to Verizon after being with Comcast for a zillion years and now when I click on a link in my email it does not work unless I am already on the internet. This is annoying and hopefully it can be fixed. Verizon does not supply much help on the website and so far I don't like their email and would rather continue using Windows Mail if I can fix this. It probably happened when I had to install McAffee again since that is Verizon's security program. Appreciate any help you can provide. Not sure what you mean when you say, "unless I am already on ...

Break links turn last number in bubble size to zero
I have a master file with bubble charts. In a loop, the 2 sheets with the charts and the chart data get copied to a new workbook, saved with another name and links to the master file are broken. When this happens, the last number on my bubble size gets turned into a zero. Does anyone know how to prevent this? You are probably best off asking the person who gave you the code. If you wrote it yourself, you may want to share the relevant portions of the code. If you do so, please post the code in the text of the message; many people, including myself, will not download or open a file. ...

Outlook 2000 #25
When Outlook 2000 is launched, the opening process eliminates the video, making the screen go black for about 6 seconds. When the Screen returns, the window is larger, the font is displayed larger, and Outlook functions. When Outlook is closed, the screen goes black for about 6 seconds and the system returns to its original video display, size, colors, etc. Anyone know why 2000 changes the system display?
