WinXP Pro to Student version Win 7 Ultimate
My son's computer currently runs Windows XP Pro SP3 and he's looking to go
to the student version of Windows 7 Ultimate. We've run the advisor and the
machine is more than capable of handling the change but we're a bit baffled
by some conflicting information on the http://www.software4students.co.uk/
The Microsoft Upgrade Path Chart shows that a move from Windows XP to
Windows 7 Ultimate can be done, NOT as an in-place upgrade, but ONLY as a
"custom install". A custom install is also known as a clean install and can
be used to completely repl...Exchange recovery
We recently lost our exchange server functionality thanks to AD falling
over. So we've just upgraded from Exchange 2000 to 2003. As the system
uses mirrored disks, we still have a copy (somewhere) of the old
exchange store, which includes people's emails, contacts, calendars, etc.
What I would like to do is to be able to recover all this information
for users, but without over writing email that has been received since
the system was reinstalled.
I assume that exmerge is the tool I am looking for, but given the recent
problems we've had, I want to ensure that this *is*...Going Live with GP
I plan to start using GP Sept 1. We have not transferred any historical
transaction from the old accounting system.
All of our Vendors, Customers, Inv Items etc. are entered and we have tested

I understand the basics things such as
Enter open invoices in AP and AR
Enter open POs
Enter begining GL account balances fromt the old accounting system
Begining bank balances and so on.
I just want to make sure that I'm not overlooking something so a check list

...Migrating data from GP to GP
I have a GP7.5 installation when all data is, and a new GP8 installation on
a different server.
I need to migrate inventory data from the GP7.5 to GP8.
I know that i should use the integration manager. But using it means that i
should know the data source structure which is GP, and this is very complex
because i need to migrate all inventory module, not a few data.
PS: i don't what to make an upgrade because other modules are different in
the 2 installations.
Does anyone have any idea on this issue?

...GP concurrent user and SQL 2005 CAL
assuming a 10 con-current licenses being installed on 15 workstation, with 15
users in GP.
How many SQL 2005 CAL is needed ?
Server plus user client access license (CAL) licensing requires a separate
Server license for each server on which the software is installed, plus a
user CAL for each user accessing the server.
The user CAL model will likely be more cost effective than device CALs if
there are multiple devices per user (for example, a user has a laptop and
handheld computer accessing SQL Server).

Maximum Global Business...EXC5.5: IMC crashing on mail with unknown addresses
We have a severe problem on two sites in our exchange organization.
(Exchange 5.5 SP4 + postSP4 Hotfixes, Trend Micro SMEX 3.82_1160)
When sending emails to addresses, which were moved in the organisation,
the IMC seems to crash (bridge head server in a site of 5 exc servers,
holding @3000 mailboxes, bridgehead itself has @5- max.50 mailboxes).
On the address field properties of the sent email you only see the
X.400 address of the old location of the user, no display name, etc.
is set (old entry may be grabbed from a user out of the GAL due
to replication delays).

I'm getting ready to install a Service pack for GP7.5 and my ultimate goal

Let me describe what we have done in the past to upgrade and what I want in

I am trying to create a conditional statement with 17 IFs. I started needing
to do 11 Ifs. I got over the Excel limit of 7 by identifying a cell in the
last element of the first string of 4 IFs in which there was a further string
with 7 IFs. However I now need to expand this to 17 IFs. I tried the same
technique of creating a third string with 6 more IFs and identifying this in
the last condition of the second string. It didn't work.

"Peter" <P...Fabrication and GP
I need to know how to process a transaction in GP. We are a sales -
distribution center. We do some light fabrication. We need to find a way in
GP to take one part or more parts, do fabrication work with them, then put
them back into the system as a new part. For example, we take drum rollers
and send them to a local fabricator who drills holes in them, inserts
"brushes", then sends them back to us as a brush roller. They charge us for
labor and the additional material and we have a new part.
Currently, we either treat it as a parts sale / purchase. That part is

Interestingly, I (in the same domain, using the same Exchange Server) am

...GP 9 Upgrade and SQL Server 2000 sp4
per microsoft's documentation sql server sp4 must be installed before

necessary for the GP 9 upgrade? microsoft's documentation indicated that all
service packs for GP 8 must be installed before upgrading to GP 9, but after
speaking with support, they said the GP 8 service packs aren't necessary.
bottom line: i'd like to avoid the sql sp4 install if necessary as i had to

Got this from a client and not sure what they are doing, but never heard of

As I am reviewing the Payroll Deduction Journal from the payroll I just ran
yesterday, I have identified 5 employees whose deductions & benefits did not
calculate. I happen to be one of the 5. There is $$$$$ that did not come
off my pay as deductions; including my 401K. The common denominator seems to
be when employee changes are made, deductions & benefits are made inactive;
even though those benefits & deductions have no part in the changes being
made. Pardon me, ...MS CRM integration to GP
Can any one update me wheather the mutiple company
databases can be integrated to MSCRM.
The senario is this.
a company has mutiple entities using GP 7.5 and unique sql
databases,require to integrate mscrm with gp.
The integration that is supplied by MS only allows you to integrate
with 1 company DB. You could probably use some of the components that
are provided, but you will need to develop some of the integration
logic yourself to address this.

Seems really silly that Outlook 2003 would use Windows Messenger a
older product with less features then use MSN Messenger which is a
newer product with more features.

I don't think this is possible in 5.5 - but since mail servers are supposed
to send NDRs, and you'd be preventing valid senders from receiving notice
that they'd mistyped an address, it wouldn't be the best way to go anyway.
