PS 2010 : Work planned vs. forecast
I didn't succeed in browsing in the new forum for Project Server 2010, so I
post my question here, in this good old news-group...
I'm reading the Microsoft Project 2010 Enterprise Project Management
Solution Demo.doc document.
On page 113, there is a dashboard which displays Cumulative Work Planned vs.
Actual vs. Forecast.
English is not my mother language. What is the difference between planned

Excellent question :) Having seen the report, planning is baseline work.
Forecast is work and Actual is actual wo...Inventory vs non-Inventory products
We are going through the process of getting ready to integrate GP 7.5 and MS
CRM. I was wondering if anyone out there has some ideas on the following:
At the moment, we create Orders in GP (quotes are done separately in excel).
When items are added to an Order they are added into the Inventory first
(has been the policy to ensure that they are correctly categorised with
Transaction Codes(?), and we found difficulty Back-Ordering items otherwise.
I believe this is preferable anyway, especially for recurring products - we
are an IT supplier so are always ordering new products)....Flagging messages for followup
When I send a message, I am offered the option (on the
Toolbar) of flagging it for follow up. Yet, when I do
this, the message does not automatically appear in the
folder "For Follow Up". WHY NOT? Instead, I have to go to
the stored message (e.g. in Sent Items) and check the flag
icon in the icon column.
Many thanks for any help on this.
Outlook 2003? Did you check whether the For Follow Up folder includes your
Sent Items folder?

I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction to adapt this:
http://skp.mvps.org/pptxp001.htm (which is fantastic)
OK, I have a slide with a shape and macro. 2007 in edit mode.
Rather than copy and paste the slides from the source/target powerpoint with
formatting (running this script) I'm trying to ascertain if its possible to
retain the shape and macro of the existing slide for all the slides pasted
from the source presentation.
The ideal result would be all the ingested slides would include the shape and
marco of the one existing slide.
After much searching...Missing Payment in Project Acctg
Hello! We had a damaged invoice in PA. Weird thing is that invoice is paid
and we can see the payment in AR but the cash receipt is not showing p in the
Billings and Payments Inquiry window in PA. GL looks correct also. I
checked the tables and that payment is missing from the PA23000 and PA23010
tables (PA Applied Open). Has anyone seen this before? Please let me know
your thoughts... Thanks.
Can you provide more information on the following:

Windows backup for 2008 seems to be different from 2008R2.
In 2008 I cannot select which folders/files I want to backup (in R2 I can)
Is it just the GUI that is better in R2?
Can I somehow with through commands or powershell exclude a folder in 2008
backup or do I always have to backup the whole volume?
This is a change with Windows server 2008 R2. You can't exclude folders with
Windows server 2008 backup.

I am going to guess you mean Cash Receipts, so Sales and not Payables.....if
so, Transactions > Sales > Apply Sales Documents. Pay attention to the
dates there, if the payments were not posted recently, you may want to
change the date to the payment date, otherwise the transactions will stay on
your reports as unapplied until the Apply date.

Is Windows Mail as good and reliable as Outlook Express? I never lost a

of Outlook Express. How do I check out Windows Mail performance rating?
Not sure what your point is.
Use OE on XP. Use Windows Mail on Vista.=20
OE won't run on Vista, so you have no choice about it.

When you payoff your credit card bill the bank will credit
your account with the payment. In Money, you are asked to
categorize this payment as an expense or as income. It is
neither. How do you account for this when asked to

What I would like to do is assign a "category" or "categories" to
emails which were sent to me so that I can sort by the field. My goal
is to organize my inbox so that I can see at a glance, which emails
need follow-up based on the category the email is assigned to.
I am currently using folders to organize completed emails but don't
want to use them for open emails that need follow-up. I tried setting
up my inbox view to "group by" "categories", but didn't like the extra
step of clicking the '+' to open the groups.

correctly. I am trying to delete Outlook Express 6 so

You will have to manually make account adjustments in the Customer
Properties. Take a backup first, and be careful.

I have a message in my follow up folder that I can't delete. It's a message
from with a virus warning that was removed by the mail server (I think - I
can't open the message). It's old - it's been there since september.
The message shows as unread, but it's not in any other folder. And of course
I can't delete it. When I try I get:
The item could not be deleted. It was either moved, or already deleted or
access was denied.
The message won't archive either...
How do I get rid of this message?
