Selected fields to update

I need to have the ability, in OL'07, when I try to copy in a contact and am 
told there is a duplicate, to be able to select which fields I want updated 
and which not.  Is that possible built-in or add-in?

Pricing updates for a Manufactured BOM?
Hello: A new GP 10.0 Manufacturing client of ours says that it would be nice if there were a utility in GP that updates the pricing of a bill of materials based on price changes of a component in that bill of material. Is there such a thing in GP Manufacturing? I know that GP Inventory has the Price List Wizard but that does not work for the client because (a) the Price List Wizard does not update a bill of material based on component price change and (b) the client would like to change the price based on the profit margin desired. Aside from that question, is there even a utility av...

Credit card balance update?
Hope you can help! I am a new user of MS Money 2006. I have several bank accounts entered, and all seem to work nicely except credit cards. Should credit card accounts update like bank accounts do?

I am very new to VBA and access and have a question regarding a SELECT statement. I am going to run a select (recordset - so I can loop through and process each record) but on my SELECT I want to make sure I return at least 20 rows, otherwise I am going to change my WHERE clause to include more rows. Is there an easy way to do this or do I need to just do an inital SELECT COUNT(*) and then decide which WHERE clause to use?? Do you have an example I can look at? Thank you in advance!

Drop down list quicker selection
We are using Excel 2003 We created a drop down list using the Data\Validation process, which works fine. When the arrow within a cell is clicked on to show the drop down list, how can you quickly select one of the many names in the list just by typing the first character of a name within the list. At the moment, we have to scroll up and down the list to select a particular name, which in itself isn't a problem, but slows down the process of finding the right name. Can the names within the list be alphabetically grouped when inputting the first character from the keyboard, and spee...
