Customise Opportunity Close Screen
Is it possible to customise the opportunity close screen?
I am looking to add a few extra items to the 'Status Reason' dropdown.
Thanks in advance.
To change the status reason list you need to modify the statuscode attribute
not the form it self. However the opportunity close entity is a system entity
and cannot be customized so there is no method to do this.
You can try to update the stringmap and statusmap tables in the CRM
database, but this is not a supported customization. But aslong as you only
add entries it may just work.

I am setting up a Project 2003 file for a project involving inspections of 30

date different. I created the tasks and timelines for the first facility, got
the dependencies and constraints straight, formated the bars and labels, etc.
I then copied that group of tasks, changed the facility label for each
facility. When I tried to adjust the start date for the second and third
groups of tasks, ALL the start dates changed. I checke...Pub Mail Merge
Does Publisher 2002 / 2003 version have it's own mail merge program.
I use Pub 97 now and I always have to bring in a pub file into MS Word in order to mail merge.
This means I need two software programs for one operation.
Ron Publisher 2002 and 2003 have the same useless database as Publisher 97
has built in.
Do you mean to say you have never found it in Publisher 97?
Publisher 2003 has significantly improved the ability of the Merge and you
can now merge multiple items and pictures on a page.

I want to draw a tangent to the beginning of a line in my graph, and then get
the gradient of that tangent. Can Excel do that?
I trust that you're using an XY chart, not a line chart, for this exercise.
One approach, if you want to manually draw your own "bets" line, would be to
add an XY series with two points, the first point being at the point of the
first series where you want the tangent. Select the other point of this
added series (two single clicks: one to select the series, one to select the
point). When the cursor goes over the point, it becomes a four-headed arr...how do I auto populate a powerpoint presetation from outline view
When I try to send my outline view to a PP presentation, it is not taking any
of the body of the outline to the slides, just the headings. So, what I
would expect to be about a 10 slide PP, actually turns out to be two pages.
The body text must have the heading 2 (or lower, for lower bullet levels)
style. Anything that's "normal" text won't transfer.

Yes. Right click in the status bar. Line number is one of the choices.

Not as such but by shopping around you can usually find an offer with a mail
in rebate that brings the price down. If I remember around the time M2004
was released people were talking about net prices of around 15 bucks.

"Bis" <anonymous@discussions....The spacing between lines of text is not uniform; how can I fix it
Occasionally, lines of text within a paragraph end up unevenly spaced (this
has happened in Word and in Publisher). I've checked to make sure the
defaults were set to even spacing (e.g., 1 space between lines) and they
were. What else can I do to fix this problem? As it stands right now, I
think the document looks somewhat sloppy because within just one paragraph I
think I have 3 differently-sized spaces between lines.

Have you filled the first two columns? They should automatically spill over

Even if they look like dates, some may really be text. You could try one
of the techniques shown here, to convert them to numbers:
