Connecting to MS SQL Server 2008 Express

I am using a demo for RMS 2.0 and installed MS SQL Server 2008 Express.  
Using the Store Operations Administrator Configuration screen I am getting 
the following listed below when trying to connect. Any clues as to my problem 
would be greatly appreciated...

You are tring to log into an SQL server with the SQL Authentication and the 
username Mike.  This error would indicate the user Mike does not exist, does 
not have access to the database you are trying to connect to, or the 
password was entered correctly.  I would double-check your settings on SQL. 
Typically most users use the SA username with it's password while setting up 

Thank you,

Ms Access 2007 and Ms Sharepoint 2007 (Issue with Attachments)
Hi, I'm running MS Office Enterprise 2007 SP2, MS Sharepoint 2007 SP2 on machines running Windows 2003 Enterprise. My application is simple. I'm linked to several Sharepoint tables (or lists) in a project via MS Access. I have a large table in Access that has attachments and I'm trying to post the attachments to specific records in the Sharepoint List. In all my attempt I receive an error. Run-Time error '3001' Invalid Argument. I've also used the code in this example, and get the same problem.

SQL Server Backup overwrite?
My current backups are stored here S:\backup\retail123.bak. I want to over write this backup with S:\backup\retail.bak using INIT. My question is will this make two copies (retail123.bak, retail.bak) or will this overwrite the existing retail123.bak and saves only one backup i.e. retail.bak. Do I need to add SKIP command also so that it will overwrite any backup exists in that folder with retail name? Please clarify..

We have multiple problems on a current Windows 2003 Server (also a DC - will DCPROMO down first and wait for replication) with Exchange 2003; therefore, we would like to reinstall the OS on this server. **** The errors are related to an application we previously had installed on this server and no longer have.**** Anyhow, after the reinstall of the OS, we will put back Exchange 2003 DB (priv & pub files).

help: Installed Sharepoint Portal Server 2003 over WSS
And now I can't access the Business Portal or my old WSS sites. We're running Microsoft Business Portal for Great Plains on top of WSS 2.0. Today I installed Sharepoint Portal Server 2003 without first reading the migration guide (stupid of me). Now I can't get the old WSS sites or the Business Portal site to load. I created a new virtual server for the Sharepoint Portal Server before installing it and I believe the Sharepoint Portal created a new MSDE database so it didn't wipe out the old SHAREPOINT MSDE database. I need to get the Microsoft Business Portal and the old WSS ...

Microsoft Outlook Express #3
I am having a weird program with Outlook Express. I use Roadrunner. I have two computers networked. When I try to read my e-mail I have different e-mail on each computer. For some reason all of my e-mail does not appear on both of the computers. It is frustrating to have to open Outlook Express on both to see all of the e-mail. This problem started occurring after I had to have the hard drive reformated on one of my computers. I have Internet Explorer 6.00.2900.2180 (xpsp_sp2) on both computers. Can some one tell how to fix this problem. I have installed all the updates on both compu...

FTE's in Portfolio Server vs Project Server
Is there a way that I can change the calendar for the calculation of FTE's in Portfolio Server? It appears to calculate FTE's based on an 8 hour day, resulting in my Project Server imported Resource Utilisation showing as 0.92 or something per FTE. FYI, the export from PPS to PS Resource Plan the value is correct 1 FTE = 1 FTE, it's just when I Update Availability do I see these different values.

Simultaneous socket connections. Is there a limit?
My client wants me to write an application that maintains 30 or 40 simultaneous socket connections to different hardware devices. For each device the throughput requirements are very small since only some small packets are sent occasionally at random intervals. Is there a simultaneous limit? 30 or 40 is far more then I have ever done. I don't want any surprises. Is there a limit? I assume XP Professional would handle this. Correct? Would XP Home be any different? My laptop has XP home. To certain incoming ports, its 10, although there are several cracks out their to remove this...

server connect
When I first start up Outlook 2003, it contacts the mail server and everything is hunky-doory. However, when attempting to next access the mail account by the send/receive access or in background, it indicates that it cannot locate the server and gives me error (0x80004210A). This error number is not consistent other than for the 0x800 portion. The location does not change, so how can it find it initially, and not later on? I'm confused. What type of mail server? POP3, IMAP, Exchange, HTTP, Other...? Does the same happen when you disable your firewall and/or virusscanner (integra...

Is MS ever going to fix the problem with Bills?
My money file gets slower and slower every year (started in Money 95 and have used every version since then) and have confirmed the problem in my inability to easily view the "Spending tracker" in Money Plus is because the bills are somehow messed up in the background - they all seem to work fine for payment, cash flow, etc. Spending Tracker totally chokes though, taking 2-3 minutes to show up. If I clear out all bills using the "Repair Money, Remove All Bills" it works fine. But after wasting about an hour putting stuff back in, I ran across my mortgage. It seems the &qu...

Linked Servers

The second linked server will have limited access to the database (readonly on one view). The two Linked Servers would be configured to access the database through different logins on the source server with different access to the same database. The first Linked Server works fine.
