Phone, Fax, & other Numbers in CRM AND Change Management
Does anyone know of a way to force the format of phone number fields to be
in a format like (123) 456-7890?
Anyone aware of an automated means to track change management with CRM? For
instance, can some logging be performed on CRM admins that document changes
to fields or forms?
You could validate the format of the phone number field using a regular
expression in the onchange event (and perhaps the onsave event).
About the change management, do you mean tracking data changes
(logging/auditing) or customization changes? I remember there's a third
party tool to do...Cannot uninstall MSIE to reinstall with Outlook Express upgrade
I need to upgrade to the newest version of OE but to do
so I would have to uninstall MSIE as The installer senses
that a newer version is already installed and will not
let me proceed with installation. Help?!
Hi - that's odd, as OE is part of IE. Have you run Windows Update recently?
Also note -
This is a group to support Outlook from the Office group of programs.
Outlook Express is a part of Internet Explorer and is a quite different
program, despite its similar name..
You will probably get a faster and more expert answer if you post this to an
Outlook Express news group.

How do you do a 100% uninstall of Outlook, so that it can be reinstalled
My copy of Outlook has gotten corrupted (vague "unknown error" messages
whenever I try to do nearly anything), and I haven't been able to fix it. I
want to reinstall the program, so I I removed it using the Office Installer
update feature, then rebooted and reinstalled, using the same feature. No
luck--the reinstallation had the same problems.
Next, I completely uninstalled Office, rebooted and reinstalled. Same
result--I've still got the same problems in Outlook.

I would like to shade rows of my data based on whether the next cell in
a particular column has a different value from the last.
I have a list of data where one column has some duplicate values, and
to make it more readable i would like to alternately shade the groups
of identical values. Is it possible to automate something like this or
do would i have to do it "by hand"?
Its conditional formatting - use the formula option (the conditional
format is on the format menu, then conditional formatting)
Ah yes i see it now, that was rather obvious.
Thanks for replying.

Outlook 2000 has screwed me over big-time!
I seem to have lost all my Outlook data for the past 6 months - email,
contacts, calendar, etc. All the data prior to 6 mos. ago has been
retained. Right before this data loss, I was having strange PC
behavior - most likely due to spyware apps that were slowing down
I looked at my Outlook PST file and it appears the same size as it was
before the data loss, so this missing data should still be in there
somewhere? I have tried to export the PST file to different formats,
such as Access and tab-separated values, but to no avail. I thi...View-access to MS-CRM
Is it possible to give some employees just a “View”-access to MS-CRM –
without having to create them as users?
No. In order to give them access to the CRM UI, they need to be a licensed
CRM user. You could write a read-only portal that pulls data from the CRM
views/tables, but you would need to build this yourself.

I have a sales spreadsheet that is grouped by vendor with customer sales
info under each vendor. Is there a way to sort the vendor groups
keeping the customer data in each groups as is?
This may work Dan.
To sort in Excel all the lines need to have same columns to sort on. So
a heading line and a space between Vendor Groups would be be a problem
You could add 2 columns (In the Example below columns A and B) with sort
data criteria so that the Heading and Space positions could be preserved.
Column A defines the Vendor Group
Column B defines the sort priority
