Carry forward of Activities
I have a lead and there are activities entered for the lead. When I convert
this lead into an Opportunity, Account or Contact, can I also move these
activities along with converting the lead.
Kindly help with your thoughts.
No, you can't. The reason is that CRM (unlike some other crm products) only
links one entity to each activity.
If I wanted to bring a copy of activities from Leads over to an Account, I
guess that I could create a PostCallback function on the create of the
Account to search for Activities from the related lead and then duplicate
them...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
all functions of AP AR GL.
Does anyone have a checklist of things to do when starting with a new GP
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

I have been using publisher for years, and have used this
same version (Publisher 2000) for three years. I work
with a lot of tables and I have been able to highlight an
entire cell (or several cells) and copy and paste them
somewhere else in the table.
Suddenly (perhaps after one of the many "upgrades" from
Microsoft), I am unable to do this. I have a monthly
project where I have to copy/move information from one
cell to another continually, so to suddenly not be able to
do this is very frustrating. Anyone know of a reason, or
better yet, a solution to this problem? ...VCard and Activities Tab
I'd like to send co workers my vcard, but it shows all of my

http...Assign Activity to Queue in Workflow
In the regular user interface we can assign an activity to a user or queue,
however in a workflow we can only assign an activity to a user. Why is that?
Is there any workaround other than an assembly?
You can assign an activity in CRM 3.0 to a queue via workflow. If the primary
entity of the workflow is an activity, add an "Assign entity" step to the
workflow. In the Assign Entity dialog, you will see a three radio button and
the bottom one for Queue should be enabled. Click that and then click the
"Assign to" button

I have a GP7.5 installation when all data is, and a new GP8 installation on

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

...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).

...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

The senario is this.

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.
