Problem Girl,

Why not select the entire sheet, and to a global replace of Message1 with 
Message2?  That should change the values both in your data validation list 
(use a worksheet range for that rather than a typed-in list from the DV 
dialog) and it will work. Excel ignores changes made to cells with DV when 
they are made through the replace dialog.

Integration manager, GP9.0, data from tables???
Here's the situation: Using GP9.0 and need to import sales through SOP. I created a gateway between the company proprietary systems and GP 9.0 using Access 2003. The data is created and stored in tables I created in the appropriate company databases. Its easy in Access to connect to the appropriate company using RegisterGlobals9. How can I get IM to mimic that so I can create the three data sources I need to make the SOP integration work?

Could a Windows Explorer crash end up corrupting data?
Using Windows Explorer, I moved several gigabytes of data from my hard drive to a USB drive. Then later in the day, Windows Explorer crashed - it said something like "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" and it also mentioned the possibility of losing data. I know that sometimes when you copy stuff to a USB drive, not all the data will get copied immediately, due to caching, and that's why you need to click the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon before you unplug the drive. I never clicked on that after I moved my files, because I just ...

how do i refresh or sync all?
I am trying to force my mail to refresh, or to look for new mail much like Outlook Express does when you click on "Sync All". Maybe I shouldn't be concerned with this.

Hello, How can I set the line and marker options to default to "AUTOMATIC" instead of "CUSTOM" in the FORMAT DATA SERIES - PATTERNS option?

Go to Chart Type on the Chart menu, click on the Custom Types tab, select the User Defined option, click on Default under Chart Type, and click the Delete button. This resets to the original default chart type, a clustered column chart. 2. Make a chart as usual (which uses the current default) ...

Data Encryption for SSN (Vendor & Employee Cards)
Does Microsoft Dynamics GP (or any third party add-on solution) offer a data encryption solution for the SSN values held in the Vendor Cards and Employee Cards tables? Will, Are you trying to prevent users from seeing it on the windows or at the database level? For the windows, you could use Modifier to mark the SSN field as "Password", which will then display an X in place of the data. At the SQL level you would need to write a trigger to encrypt the data as it is saved to the database. The issue will be unencrypting the data as it pulled from the database either...
