Outlook 2003 MailMerge with Word XP (2002)
I only upgraded to Outlook 2003 while retaining the rest
of Office XP. It appears that I can no longer do a mail
merge from my Outlook contacts using Word XP. Any help
regarding how this may be achieved? Your help is
appreciated. Best regards,
Versions must match. Never upgrade only one application if you want to

Does anyone know what, if any, mail merge capabilities exist in the
Microsoft CRM package?
So far, this is what I have figured out:
I will run a query in CRM for the contacts that are
desired for the mailing. I then export these to excel
and use Word to do the actual mail merge.
I don't believe there is a simpler way, but if anyone
knows, I would like to learn this as well.

Let me ask if this is possible...
In SQL 2000, a method by which you dismount a DB, backup, and then remount
in new location (assuming same server name) - works just fine for RESTORE
Can you do the same for Exchange 2003 DB?
I want to stop the services, dismount the DBs, copy them, and restore to
another identical environment (segregated from same LAN segment) and restore
it to that environements Exchange 2003 Server.
Will this work?
I'd suggest to read the Exchange 2003 Disaster Recovery Operations Guide.

We have 2 stores. 1 has 2 pos stations with a store ops server running the
msde db. The other has just 1 pos/server combo which has a local copy of
the msde db. They both sync with our HQ server via the Hq Client.
What we want to do is run reports for both msde db's from the 1 store ops
I can connect to the second msde db from the store ops server using the
store ops administrator, connect option. When I run reports via the
manager, the reports are based on the local msde.
I can go into store ops administrator, configuration and change the Primary

I have a photo inserted at the top of a page and set to "lock anchor" and
"behind text". When the document becomes long enough to warrant a second page
the photo jumps to the top of the second page instead of staying in place at
the top of the first page. Why is this happening? Is there something else I
need to do to insure it stays at the top of the first page?
Thanks for any input! I'm baffled!

One of my clients has been running a converted 97 - 2000 DB for well

I have installed Publisher 97 on my new Windows XP PC even though I already
have Publisher 2003 on the machine.
The reason I installed the old version also was simply because it was taking
me a lot longer than I had hoped to master 2003 and there are some old
publications which I need from time to time.
Everything in 97 works fine on the new machine, except for one item.
When I attempt to use MAILMERGE, whether it be OPEN DATA SOURCE or CREATE
PUBLISHER ADDRESS LIST, it responds with the same message

For 2005, in Management Studio, right click on the database concerned,
select Tasks then Generate Scripts. The Generate SQL Server Scripts Wizard
will start, click Next. You will be shown a list of databases, not sure why
