Sort Dialog box can be reduced to about 3 inch by 6 inch at smallest.
Use sizing arrows to bring down to that size.

We are moving a Great Plains installation to a new server. We are also
moving from SQL 2000 to SQL 2005.
I tired to follow the scripts to move the users in the KB article 878449.
1) We ran the Capture Logins script on the SQL 2000 database.
2) backed up the databases.
3) Recreated all of the companiess on the new server with SQL 2005.
4) Restored the backed up databases from the source server.
5) Ran the drop user company scripts.
This was when we received errors that the users were all ready in databases
and roles. I tried to manually delete the users from the databases, but was

We're using MS Project 2007 and seeing that sometimes when time is entered
into the Work field for a task, that task's Actual Work is updated to the
same value entered in the Work field. This happens to multiple resources,
but only on some of their tasks and not on others. For example, for the
weeks of 1/24 and 1/31, whatever hours I schedule (enter in the "work" cell
in the Resource Usage View) for a given task also appears in the "actual"
The tasks are setup up differently. Some are Fixed Work, some are Fixed

You could create an Input sheet. I'd name it Input <bg>.
Then in column A, put a nice description. In column B, put your entry:

...How do I make all cells in a table the same height & width?
Is there an easy way in Publisher to take a preformatted table and change the

Use grid guides from Arrange, layout guides or create your guides from the ruler
(arrange, ruler guides). There is no easy way.
