Use of MS Dynamics CRM in Utility Billing
I was wondering if we can easily use Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 for 'Utility
Billing System and Print Presentment'. This also involves use of handheld
devices for reading meters and bill presentment.
In case you know about a better solution for this requirement, please share
that with me.

I have been running Office 97 pro on Windows XP because I do not want
to loose the shortcut bar that came with 97.
Thing is that I have been thinking about installing the 2007 version
of Office that I have had but never installed yet for above reasons.
Question is can I install the 2007 version over the 97 version and
have it update the programs but keep the shortcut bar??
I know there are probably other shortcut bars or whatever out there
but as I asked I would rather keep the 97 one if possible.

I have created a VBA Form that is opened by clicking a button added by
modifier. The form is used to select from a list of Crystal Reports that can
be run from the window. In GP 9.0 the VBA Form opened on top of the GP form,
with both Dynamics Form and VBA form being visible
In Dynamics 10, when the form opens, it minimizes the GP window that has the
button that activates the form, but only if the main Dynamics 10 menu window
is not minimized. If I minimize the main Dynamics 10 Menu window, but leave
the GP window visible, then click the button, the VBA Form opens on top of

What is the difference between MS EPM and MS projects
Is it just project server and sharepoint added to MS projects together
called MS EPM?
Yes. EPM is Enterprise Project Management. Microsoft's solution is Project

...Calculated field 05-12-10
I need to calculate many fields based on one start date and I need the
calculations to count by month.
For example first visit is 4/25/2010
The first calculated field must be 5/25/2010 +/- 7 days
This is the first time I've had to do a calculated field where the next
visit must be the exact day of the next month and not just the generic "30
days" Is there an easy way to do this?
Go to online help and look for DATESERIAL function. I think that should
help you out.

All of our users currently use remote desktop to access Great Plains. Today,
several people were logged and working when the program started hanging.
Now, no one can even login - the program hangs before the login prompt.
In addition, FrX at the same time started getting the following error when
trying to run a report: Couldn't get printer information. Make sure you
have a default printer.
When we use the remote desktop to go to a different computer to use GP,
everything seems to work fine.

It seems as though when someone is tracking things into CRM from Outlook
sometimes it appears that it cannot find CRM and the client stops working. I
am unable to synch and I am unable to track anything into CRM. I have been
uninstalling the Client and then reinstalling it. I don't want to have to do
that. Is anyone out there experiencing the same issues? I really want to
know if it is a bug in the new version of CRM 3.0 or if there is another
