Millions of contacts in CRM
I am concerned about the use of MSCRM in a client with a few milliion
contact records (around 6 million). I know from my own experience with SQL
Server that there is no problem with this database, but I wonder if there is
any issu regarding the application ou the application server...? I also read
the performance and sizing white papers, but the concern there is related to
number of users not record number...

Point your browser at http://ichart.yahoo.com/t?s=AMR
You'll get a nice little 1 by 2 inch stock chart for AMR.
The chart is actually a GIF.
I want to set up a cell or cells in a spreadsheet so they
fetch this chart from the web and display it.
I've tried to make a Web Query do this. I fail, because it
displays only a little gibberish, presumably because it does
not understand that the URL result data is a GIF to be shown
As far as I can tell, Web Queries are just not intended to do this.
They are intended to scrape tabular data from URL's, not graphics.

We don't want the capability to allow Contacts to have Sub-Contacts - but it
does not seem possible to hide the Sub-Contacts item in the contacts form
left hand menu.
Could you create a new custom entity [Companies or something like that] to
use instead of Accounts? then create a relationship between Companies and
Contacts and have the lookup on the contact form be to the Companies object,
rather than Accounts (remove the parent account lookup field from the ...Import Contact as AD contacts

I have imported a large group of inventory incorrectly (the bar code numbers

How about creating a SQL statement to remove the spaces.

I have users complaining that they are seeing too many contacts at once and
only want to see the contacts that are available to them.
When a user opens an Account and clicks on Contacts, how can it be made to

Microsoft CRM 3.0 is designed such a way that the user acually will see any
record that he's allowed to see. You could limit rights to users, but I don't
think this is the way to go. Currently I don't see a way to restrict the
visible contacts based upon which user is logged on.

If a mail has several recipients those using

I was using outlook express on server 2003 for years without many problems.
Recently I exported all my contacts to a .WAB file then moved it to my 2008
R2 server for import. The problem is when I import the 997 contacts, they
show up in the immediate session however when I close and reopen WLM the
imported contacts are no longer there.
anyone have any ideas?
I found that removing all punctuation marks (comma's, periods ...) from
