Gary D --

Your question sounds like Project Server; if so, please post your future 
questions in the microsoft.public.project.server newsgroup, as this 
newsgroup is dedicated to the Microsoft Project desktop application only. 
In Project Server, the administrator does not create custom enterprise 
fields in Project Professional 2007.  Instead, he/she creates custom 
enterprise fields using the PWA interface, and the system allows an 
unlimited number of custom enterprise fields.  The limitation you see in 
Microsoft Project 2007 is for local projects only (projects saved as an MPP 
file) when you are not using Project Server 2007.  Hope this helps.

Depends what you mean by Ebnterprise Project.
Custom fields you define on Server level in Project Server are additional.
In Project Professional or Standard (not using Server) you cannot add any.
Hope this helps,

Custom Entity Relationship CRM 3.0
I have created a new custom entity (A) for which I need to create two referential relationships to other custom entities (B) & (C). (A) is the primary entity in both cases. The relationship between (A) and (B) acts normally. The relationship between (A) and (C) doesn't. When I try to add a (C) record from (A), (A) displays two records in the (C) lookup. One "record" displays data from system fields (created on and status). The second "record" displys data from the primary field. I am not able to access (C) record from the associated view in (A), but I can a...

Tracking customer orders when receiving stock
With our current POS system we can place items on order for a particular customer (whether we are holding the stock or not) and when we generate purchase orders the system automatically pops up letting us know we have pending orders for customers. We can then generate a purchase order based on this information. When we receive the stock, we can print out a report for that order that lists what stock needs to be allocated to which customers. Is there a way with RMS that we can do this? Unfortunately it is a regular occurance that our stock levels can be incorrect, for instance we may have a 0 ...

Cannot define field more than once. (Error 3191) after shuffling o
Hi I just shuffled the order of fields and added some in a table. Now I cant save it, as it complains with "Cannot define field more than once. (Error 3191)". I think it somehow remembers the first location that a field was in, and then sees the new location and thinks its a duplicate. Andrew, Check very thoroughly that you don't have the exact same field name more than once. Personally I find that this can happen easily when I am playing with new tables and editing table fields.

Choosing fields for system integration
I have a question on system integration on selecting "Unused" fields for storing data. Our system for entering tasks, billing, and tracking status on projects has fields that would be nice to have in the Great Plains system.

Should these types of additions be done in a new table or is the recommended way to piggyback on an existing field that is not currently being used? What are the issues that we might face on future upgrades with either adding new fields or using "unused fields"? As...
