Why is Actual Work updated when entering time into Work Field?
We're using MS Project 2007 and seeing that sometimes when time is entered
into the Work field for a task, that task's Actual Work is updated to the
same value entered in the Work field. This happens to multiple resources,
but only on some of their tasks and not on others. For example, for the
weeks of 1/24 and 1/31, whatever hours I schedule (enter in the "work" cell
in the Resource Usage View) for a given task also appears in the "actual"
The tasks are setup up differently. Some are Fixed Work, some are Fixed
Duration. I believe all have the e...Move from SQL2000 to SQL2005
We are moving a Great Plains installation to a new server. We are also
moving from SQL 2000 to SQL 2005.
I tired to follow the scripts to move the users in the KB article 878449.
1) We ran the Capture Logins script on the SQL 2000 database.
2) backed up the databases.
3) Recreated all of the companiess on the new server with SQL 2005.
4) Restored the backed up databases from the source server.
5) Ran the drop user company scripts.
This was when we received errors that the users were all ready in databases
and roles. I tried to manually delete the users from the databases, but was

I have an end user who has created some custom date fields in a contact
This is all good. However, if the user types in Jan 07 as a date it always
saves as Jan 08. If she enters Jan 2007 then all is good.
I know this is the end user being a little lazy but is there a way to change
the way dates are saved to suit my end user?
outlook (like excel) reads jan 07 as 1/7 current year. I know of no way to
change the behavior in outlook.

Currently we have calendars set up in Public Folders that our
employees can use to schedule conference rooms. I would like to set
up resource scheduling instead so someone can view the availability of
the employees and the conference rooms at the same time.
I've got the resource mailboxes created and they are ready to be used
but I'm not sure how to handle the meetings that are already scheduled
in Public Folders. Is there a right or wrong way to move the meeting
from Public Folders into the resource mailboxes?
Thanks in advance.

In fact, Visio is limited to Jan 1, 1900 or later. That is "0" in the date

You'll have to draw them "by hand"...or try to map past dates to future ones
