Describe more completely the problem you are having.
If your account information is correct, there would never be any need to set
the From field in an individual message.

The From field is populated by the name and email address you have set for
each account. It is not necessary to populate the From field manually unless
your e-mail account is corrupt.

Pivot-How to add field value to already made group
If I have already grouped values in a Pivot is there a way I can add an additional value without ungrouping and then selecting everything plus the value I left out and then grouping again. I hate having to undo my group when I accidently left out a value. Thanks for any help with this. Ann Not quite with you as I can think of two things you may have done.

I tried using the "changed by" field, but it does not meet my needs as all of the users must have "Full mailbox access" to see the search folders defined on the shared mailboxes.

CRM 3.0 Field Mapping Not Working
Hi, In CRM 1.2 when you create a Contact from an Account most of the field come over. The Parent Customer (Account Name) comes over as well. When you create an Opportunity, Order or Quote from a Contact is only brings over the Contact name. We had created a field called Account name in the Order, Opportunity and Quote and were able to map Parent Account to these fields in 1.2 and it worked great. I was not there when it was originally mapped so am not sure what our tech did to map it. We also had it bring over from the Account into the Contact the Territory field. When we convert...

Custom fields in item forms?
It appears as though POS2009 allows Custom fields (date, text, number) in the Customer form but not in the Item form. Our business requires tracking of item information (release dates, labels, configurations, formats, etc.) beyond which the standard fields in the Item form allows. Is it possible to add custom fields to the Item form beyond the three text fields that are limited to 30 characters? If not, is it possible to adjust POS2009 using the SDK to add the ability to add custom fields (for dates, text greater than 30 characters, drop-down lists, numbers) to the Item form? Would it t...

Problem showing memo field in list box
I am using Access 2007 in 2002-2003 mode. I have a memo field in a linked table tbl_tasks.description. When I use the Listbox wizard to create a listbox, at the point where the wizard shows me what fields are available to include in the Listbox, it does not show me the memo field. I bypassed that and created the listbox anyway, then modified the rowsource of the listbox to add in the memo field. When I tried this, and when I open the form, Access prompts me for the value of tbl_tasks.description. When I search the newsgroups on this general subject, I see that listboxes generally show a t...

Referencing Fields on a different form
Hi, I have a field that relates to company size on the account form that I want to link to a field on the case form. The idea is that dependant on what is selected on the company size picklist the field value on the case form is filled in. The field on the case form is a monetary value. I suppose my question is, how do I reference the field on the account form from some code on the onload section of the case form. My understanding is that the crmForm.all.FIELDNAME format will not work in this way. How do I reference the FIELDNAME on a different form? Thanks in advance my understandin...

Firstly, sorry for posting this here, but I need to do this in Access and I can't see any other place to post the question and I know it's going to involve lots of VBA... Now to give a brief description of where this is coming from. My office is a 24/7 operation which answers for a variety of different offices and locations.

The textbox is in a monospace font to allow for easy formatting to make the procedures legible with...

Remove Revenue field from opportunity form
I want to remove the revenue radio button field that asks if you want to enter the value yourself or have it system calculated but can't as it says it is required by the system.

Does anyone know what is stopping me removing it? Hi Helen, Unfortunately you cannot remove this field. The reason is that the recalculate button on this form auto-calculates the revenue from the opportunity p...

Duplicating a field that is set to "allow multiple values"...How?
I'm writing a sub to duplicate records in my database. I'm writing it myself because I've found that the built in duplicate button in access is insufficient (for one, it doesn't duplicate records in the subforms). One of my fields is set to "allow multiple values". Yes, I know this feature is frowned on, but it's a specific requirement, so there's nothing I can do. The trouble is, all of my records duplicate fine, except this one. When I have the corresponding line of code uncommented (see "no. 1" in code snippet below), I get the erro...

On Open, Set a field to locked.
How do you set a field to "locked" on the OnOpen event of a form? I don't always want it to be locked, just sometimes. So I don't want to permanently set the control's property to "locked" in its design. You have to use the OnLoad event because the Open event is too early to reference a control on your form.
