How do you add text to custom columns created thru the Field Chooser pls?


If I create a custom text column via Field Chooser - New, how can I
enter text into it afterwards?

I'm looking to add an "annotation" column and not have it sent if/when
I forward or reply to the message.

If you directly want to fill it out in the message list you'll have to 
enable "allow in-cell editing" for your view.
The technique would be similar to;

Add Lookup Fields to Entity
I need to add 4 "technical contact" fields (which would lookup the Contact entity) to the CONTRACT form. Is this possible? I've found it difficult to figure out what to do first.

This will work in 4.0 Not possible, Pezman. N:M relationships are not possible in 3.0 yet. There is a alternative solution: a new entity to act as an N:M relationship. In your case, Contract/Contact. This entity has two 1:N relations...

Problems creating a PDF file from a report using autoexec macro
Hi, I am using the autoexec macro to run a report and print it out as a pdf file. My steps in the autoexec macro are 1. OpenReport 2. Print Out 3. RunCode 4. Quit.

Whenever I run this, I get a box that comes up and says "Print Macro Definitions" Include for Macro _Properties _Actions and Arguments _Permissions by User and Group. The application hangs on this without closing. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? Is Print Out the right command? Tha...

Delete button missing on HQ Global Customers list
I have a strange problem with HQ Manager. All PC's and Server are running HQ 1.3.1002. When all but one user with admin level access opens HQ Manager, enters maintenance mode, and clicks Database, Global Customers, the Delete button is visible for a split second and then vanishes. The one user that can see and use the Delete button can use it from any PC, so it appears to be related to the user account, except that the button is missing when running HQ Manager on the Server. As far as I can tell, the users that cannot see the Delete button have exactly the same permissions and level. There...

How do I increase the text size of an Excel cell?
Hi guys, Situation: I had a memo size field in MS Access. When I copied and pasted it into an MS Excel cell the text gets truncated?

add a DC in a LegSite
Hi, In the disaster recovery plan we want to create a leg site and put a DC in it. Here are some questions on how to achieve this smoothly. 1. Should I create the new site/subnet first and then promote a server in that subnet/site to DC, or should I promote a server in existing site/subnet and then move this DC to the new site/subnet? 2. When promoting a server to DC, should the server be a member server (already joined the domain) or just a workgroup member (no domain membership)? 3. The DC will be an AD-integrated DNS server.
