Check Links in GP6.0

I'm new to a company that is running GP 6.0 and have not run Check Links for 
at least a year.  Before I run against the live database I'd like to restore 
to a test company and run the process.

My question is what kind of things should I do and look for to validate that 
the check links process was succesful.  What I fear is that we run the 
process and find days later that it messed something up and we have to try 
and recover.

Is there a checklist of things to look for?

Thanks for any help!

If check links changes anything at all, it will indicate so in a report that 
is printed after the process is run.  Some of the messages are a little 
cryptic, but you can usually figure out what they mean and where to look at 
the data that was either changed or noted on the report.

I have used check links for many years, and have never actually had it do 
anything that would require a restore.  However, as a precaution, it is 
recommended that you make a backup before you run check links.  I like your 
idea of running it on a test company restored from your production database, 
because all users have to be out of the company you're running check links 
on and this will give you an idea of how long it will take and what it will 
try to fix.

Authorizing checks with RMS

Check names not working for multiple address books / contacts

Linking Chart items to files
Anyone got a clue on how to link each stacked bar(or similar) to a different file, so when someone views the file, he can click on the bar, to get a relevant document on his web-browser/similar(pdf, whatever).

Within the procedure you need some kind of lookup to see what document should be launched according to the point which was clicked.

Printing Checks

Migrate data from 1.2 to 3.0
Hi Can i use the data migration framework to migrate data from 1.2 SBS to 3.0 Professional after doing all the required mappings ? Is there an easier way to have data from 1.2 SBS moved to 3.0 Professional? Unfortunately you cannot move data between deployments. You can only upgrade the existing CRM 1.2 deployment to 3.0.
