How to handle value-added services by third party vendors?

We're stumped on how to handle the following (i.e., issuing POs and 
accounting for the costs properly):

1. We normally stock & sell ItemA as individual units.
2. It was decided to bundle 3 ItemA's into one package & sell as ItemA-3.
3. We are going to purchase the ItemA's from VendorA, but have them drop 
shipped to VendorB to shrink wrap them in bundles of 3 for us. VendorB will 
then ship the shrink-wrapped bundles to our warehouse.

We've come up with a plan for dealing with this, but it's very cumbersome.

In a perfect GP world, how would one deal with this? The ultimate goal would 
be to have the ItemA-3's in inventory, with the cost being the cost of the 3 
units of ItemA plus the value-added cost of the shrink wrap process.

Bud,

I assume you're not using GP Manufacturing.  To me, the easiest way to
handle this is to use the Inventory BOM and Assembly Transaction.  I
would set the A-3 BOM up with 2 components - 3 of the Item A and one
component representing the contracted service.

Issue PO for Item A and receive them as a normal PO receipt when
Vendor A notifies you they've shipped.  Issue a PO to Vendor B for the
contracted service item.  When Vendor B notifies you that the items
have shipped to your warehouse, receive the contracted service item as
a normal receipt.  Then, perform an Assembly Transaction to consume
the 3 Item A's and the contracted service item into the A-3 BOM.  This
will reduce the inventory of Item A's and the contracted service item
and increase the inventory of Item A-3 and perform all the accounting
for you.

If you want to see a detailed explanation of how the Assembly
Transaction/Inventory BOM is setup and works, check out this article I
wrote for MSDynamicsWorld here -

Exchange 2K to 2K3 migration
I'd like to get some advice on the best approach to handle the STM file during an Inter-Org mailbox move. The Exchange migration wizard will handle the the mailbox but how do you handle the content in the STM file? Thanks. You don't need to worry about it. Mailbox data is stored in both the EDB and STM files. Typically, message content from the Internet will be in the STM file. I'd suspect that when you migrate the mailboxes, all data will be converted to native MAPI format (moved to EDB file) and will then be moved to the new mailbox. -- Ben Winzenz Exchange MVP Me...

Service Pack 1 question
Exchange 2003. I understand that as a recommended best practice you keep the front-end and back-end exchange servers at the same service pack level, and when you do in fact put a service pack on them that you do the front-ends first. However, I am adding an additional back-end server into the exchane organization at present. Can I go ahead and load SP1 to it without causing any problems with the other servers? SP1 will go on the other servers when I can plan an outage, but since this server is brand new without any mailboxes on it yet, I'd like to go ahead and service pack it. ...

Txt box value from query field
Access 2007 FormA uses TableA. TableA has FieldA which is a very non-descript code. TableB is related to TableA on that field (FieldA) and has all the descriptive info behind the non-descript code. I created a query to retrieve from TableB the descriptive info based on the value of FieldA on the form. When I run the query, it behaves correctly. I get the 1 record from TableB that I am expecting. When I try to populate a text field on FormA from one of the fields from the query, I get #Name. Seems simple enough. But, alas, not working. TIA.

Export Distribution Lists from AD and Viewing all containers
Two part question: Anyone know how to export distribution lists from AD (using Exchange 2003)? I can seem to export the list of DL's, but what I need is each DL with a list of members. Two, When I am in a DL trying to add members, I can only view usernames from the User container in AD. If there are users in other containers, I cannot view them from inside the DL. Instead, I have to go to each container, look for the user, and add them individually to the DL. It is quite time consuming!
