Dynamics 5.0 on Btrieve
What the best practice to upgrade from Dynamics 5.0 on Btrieve to MS Great
Plains 7.5 or 8.0 for one of my clinet.
Here's the Btrieve path from article 871730.
Dynamics 5.0 to Great Plains Standard 8.0
5.0 - 6.0 - 7.5 - 8.0
5.0 - 5.5 - 6.0 - 7.0 - 7.5 - 8.0
I don't know why you would take the second path but it's an option.
I would upgrade to 7.5, at least, on Btrieve/Pervasive and then migrate to
SQL Server from there so you can get support if you need it.

Is there an easier way to complete an activity in v3.0 for any type set,
besides going back into the original activity and choosing save and complete?
I have not found any other way to do this? Am I missing something? Also,
is there any other easy way to generate another activity or change the status
of say a phone call to an email without deleting and recreating a new

how can I handle item variants in GP 9.0?

In another MBS Dynamics product I only enter item "A100" and item "B2000". I
can then add variant codes for the colors on item A100 and other variant
codes for the finishes on item B2000. This is handled from a single item
card. WHen items are sold or purchased, the variant code is entered in a
separate field from the item number.

Dependant on the value in Picklist A, I would like to display different
values in Picklist B. For example:
Picklist A = Fruits, Color, etc.
When user select Fruits, Picklist B should display: Apple, Pear.
When user select Color, Picklist B should display: Red, Green.
Many thanks in advance.
If you look at the SDK samples, there is an example on how to do this.

Hi, CRM is quite new (well very new!!) to me - and I am
playing with Data Integration. I have the following to ask:
I have a SQL Server Table with Customer Account Details. A
master application feeds this table with information form
a mainframe system. This SQL Table contains the master
source of the data.
The problem is that I need to do integration between this
SQL Account table and CRM. Thus, I have to consider 3
operations that might be exercised on the Records namely:

Merijn van Mourik
When you need to maintain a large number of picklists, it can be time
consuming to keep the mappings between entity picklists consistent. This is
because every picklist item has a label and a corresponding number. And this
number is not visible when working with Microsoft CRM. When you map a
picklist to a picklist in another entity, you should verify whether the
underlying numbers are ok.

there are larger numbers of contacts to be synchronised, no synchronisation
takes place. E.g. I add a ML that has 10 users, perform a CRM Synchronisation
from Outlook, and I can see the 10 users being populated in my Contacts
folder. However, when I created a ML with 400 contacts, and do the same, no

In the picklist Customertype i have made a new entry called partner.

When someone selects Partner in the Customertype picklist i want the

I have tried multiple codes but i cant get it to work.

I am looking for a formula that will allow me to count specific cells (not a

...Printing single labels directly from CRM 4.0
We are currently moving from CRM 3.0 to CRM 4.0 while at the same time
introducing many new users to the system. One feature that we would
like to have, partly to satisfy new users, would be to print
individual account's or contact's addresses to a labelwriter.
Basically, the idea would be that from any view you could select 1-n
accounts or contacts, then click print label on the toolbar, and then
the labels would print from your selected labelprinter. Especially
when printing only one or a few labels, this approach would be
preferable to printing eg through mailmerge.

calculated at the appropriate time.

...rename CRM Database
We currently have three CRM environments, on three separate Database servers,
all with the exact same database name. Is it possible to rename two of the
crm databases such that all three databases may sit on the same server?
I don't think that you can easily do this since the DB anme & the installed
org name are tied together. You could try the redeployment tool to see if
that would work though.
