Extender-Create a new data entry window

Is it possible to create a new extender form or window (not sure of the 
terminology) to enter data into Dynamics?  Specifically the Sales Forecast 
Window in Manufacturing is terrible for entering data,  everytime you move to 
the right, it the scrolling window jumps back to the top and you have to find 
the item again.

Anyway, I would like a new window to enter a sales forecast,  is this 
possible?

thanks

Unfortunately Extender data is stored in Extender tables and cannot be stored 
in the Sales Forecast tables.  I agree with you that the data entry screen is 
horrible.  I am talking to MS about that window but for now, we are stuck 
with it.

The window is almost unusable,  If you get more than 10 items on the 
forecast,  you just cant get anything done.

Microsoft Dynamics GP blew this window....

You would need Extender Enterprise but I'm not sure if you could create an 
interface between it and the window in MFG where you want the data.

The issue still is though,  we wouldnt be having this discussion if Dynamics 
GP group would have actually 'Used and tested' the window before releasing it 
like this.  They should be embarrassed....

What else is frustrating is they present this new interface,  office and 
exchange like for V10,  and the current windows or forms they have are not 
good.  Put some effort into cleaning up the software, not adding more visual 
fluff stuff.....

Data Validation #8
Hi Hope some genius out there can help. I need to ensure that users enter a numeric value in the current cell of a range of cells.

I selected my "Validation Criteria" as "Custom" with a "Formula" =ISNUMBER(CELL("address")). This approach only seems to work on the first cell in the range.
