Actually, it depends on how many users can be grouped and how many have 
truely unique sets of rights.  Properly using the Roles and Tasks can 
minimize your setup time to as little as a couple of minutes per user, once 
your roles are defined.

My thoughts are even though there is a tool to convert security to the new 
v10 model, I would suggest taking the opportunity to convert to the new model 
and recreate the security from scratch using the supplied Roles and Tasks.

Windows not updating
I've read and followed the advice to check BITS and Update are set to automatic and started but to no avail. I've done all that, then rebooted, but still can't get Windows to check for updates. I have the updater set to notify me which updates are available before downloading but as I've tried setting that to fully automatic and then checking for updates (didn't work) I'm guessing that's not a factor. Where do I go from here, please? I have: IE 8.0.6001 Vista Home 32 SP2 80070422 ERROR_SERVICE_DISABLED The service cannot be started, either ...

Tracking Who Updates Records
I have a form which is used to input new customer data. The database of which the form is a part is used by a number of different user. I want to track which user input which records. I have a textbox in the form which is not visible set to =CurrentUser(). I then have a textbox bound to the UpdatedBy field in the customer records. I used the OnDirty event of the form and set Me.UpdatedBy = Me.txtTmpUser, thinking that UpdatedBy would contain the same data as txtTmpUser as soon as any change was to the data in the form. But it's not working. What am I doing wrong. Tom, I am inde...

I have a pre-loaded version of Money2002 but....
.....I would like to know if I can successfully install it on my (soon to be purchsed) new notebook. I have the Cert. of Authenticity. Any ideas? -- Darren Your original computer should have come with a set of install disks for all the preloaded programs. If you still have these disks, you should be able to install Money on your new notebook. Also, you might see if Microsoft Works comes with your new laptop. Most times, the latest version of Money is included as well and you won't need to install the older version unless you like it better. "Darren Vaughan" <Darre...

Number 10 envelopes won't print in Office 07
I've had problems with printing envelopes in Office 2007 for months. I'm using Vista SP2 and a HP D4360. Even after clean installs envelopes will print out of place chopping off my return address, this naturally moves the send to address over as well. I then discontinue using the return address feature and print the address only. Now I can't get envelopes to print at all. I've closed Office, restarted it and that didn't help either. Does anyone know if I'm dealing with a Microsoft or HP problem? And, of course, what is the solution? Your help appre...

Adding Forms from earlier versions

Office 2003 security
Which is more secure -- 1) a password-protected Office 2003 Word document, 2) a password-protected Office 2003 Excel spreadsheet, or 3) a password-protected Office 2003 Access database?

I went over some possibilities with them and realized that I don't know the answer to the above question. Do all three applications use the same "level of security" or not?

Unit of Measure change causes updates?
We currently have an 'EA' unit of measure schedule set up, with only a base equivalancy (i.e., EA = 1 EA). All of our item masters have this 'EA' schedule assigned to them. I set up another equivalency on this schedule called 'DZ' (i.e., DZ = 12 EA). When I saved it, the system began processing through all of our item masters - which has unnerved me a bit.

Fail to load debug version of a DLL
Hi. I want to get some log messages from a DLL, so after the installation of the product I replace the release version of that DLL with its debug version. It's used during Widows authentication and first time it must be loaded by 'winlogon.exe'. After restarting machine an error occures presumably at the step of Windows authentication, stating, that the abovementioned DLL failed to load. I've checked the 2 versions of it (debug and release) with DependencyWalker, they both are dependent on the the same modules... So, the question is somewhat abstract: what are the main reasons...

Updates have been failing for almost 2 years
Hello, I have been having some problems with windows update for almost 2 yrs. All the updates that try to install fails and gives me the error code: 800719E4. I tried to install about 45 updates just today and every single one failed and gave this error code. At first I was thinking that my internet security program might have put up a firewall and blocked those, but that isn't the case. I have looked over the other discussions about this problem but they don't seem to help me. I was told that I may need the system update Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista before it will...

2003 version to 2000 version
I created a file using publisher 2003 on my laptop, emailed it to work, where I have publisher 2000, and now I can't open it. Is there any way to open this on my machine at work? The only way you can open it is by save the file as a Publisher 2000 file format. You will have to go to a machine that has Publisher 2003 on it and go to File > Save As and change the file save as type to Publisher 2000. Note that there may be some formatting loss going to a legacy version. -- Brian Kvalheim Microsoft Publisher MVP This posting is provided "AS IS&quo...

Add Analytical Accounting fields to Integration Manager
Hi all, A similar subject was created 8 months ago, and is now closed. I was wondering whether the situation had changed in between ?
