Tasks without dependencies in specific order
This is probably a pretty goofy question, but one that perplexes me
If I have a simple project with 5 tasks, and assign myself as the resource
on all of them, why does MSP shove the first task all the way out (it's a
half day task) to the end of the project, then put the remaining tasks in
If I add dependencies, then all the tasks show up in order from 1 to 5, but
the reality is, these tasks aren't actually dependent on each other. So,
without setting dependencies where they probably shouldn't exist, and without
setting start-no-earlier-th...Linked products in an Order
Were I am working we are selling products and a warranty for these products
which is optional. This warranty is equal to a certain percentage of the
product price. Currently we have created a product named 'Warranty' that we
add on the Opportunity/Quote/Order in which we add the price manually. The
problem with this solultion is that it is not automatic and that when there
are several product in an Order and several opportunity there is no way to
know which product correspond to which warranty. I would like to know if
there is a better way to deal with this problematic....Syncing Act and Outlook

That does not accomplish what I want. In Outlook 2003, there was an option

I have a couple clients that deal with sales reps in their store. Both
previously had systems that had Pro Forma invoices, where they could print
them for the sales rep. Their vendors require them to sell above a certain
price and therefore require the price to be on the purchase orders. I know
there is an amended Purchase Orders section of the RMS Reports Library...is
there any chance of adding this idea to that area?

I'm using Word 2K and when I save as a .txt file all formatting is lost. I

Txt is plain text and that does not support formatting.
Html does support formatting, but its requirements are entirely different
from those of a Word document and so there is little correlation between the
two. You can view what the Word document will look like in html by using the

What you are asking is "How can I be in 2 places at the same time?" Do I
really need to answer that? On the other hand, you can have the front-end
app automatically ask for the new location. Have a look at the following:

I have a CListCtrl and sorting it is easy.
But I want to add some extra to it.
I want to give the possibility in the hand of the user to select the
sorting order between the columns.
For this I figured out it would be great if the user could hold down
crtl key and presses the column headers in the desired order.
How can I do that. I was not able to found information in the

We recently upgraded our server to Exchange 2003 and now Outlook has
created both a "Sync Issues" and "Sync Issues1" folder. I have tried
deleting one but when I try to empty my Deleted Items folder it gives
me this message:
"Outlook has not finished synchronizing local changes made to items in
this folder. You cannot delete this folder until the synchronization
with the server is complete"
My guess is that synchronization will never complete therefore I will
never be able to get rid of the extra folder. Can anyone help me get

that to all the writers?
You should set up a template with the appropriate paragraph styles and have
all editors use the template. More to the point, if all editors make use of
the same (set of) styles and apply them consistently, the formatting will
straighten itself out as t...Deleted Order does not release item back to available

Good afternoon all,
Just wondering if this is possible. I started maintaining a list of
what files we kept archived at a storage facility, based on a list that
was on paper. I finally got all the boxes typed in, resulting in a list
which has all the files in each box, grouped by what box they are in.
However, for the sake of searching these files, it's best if I have
them alphabetically as well.
My solution was to make a copy of the "List" called "Alpha". Alpha
contains the list, sorted by surname. Every time I catalogue a new box,
I copy it into "Alpha" an...Back Order Qty Print on Picking Ticket form

Hello, I'm a relative nOOb to Excel.
I'm going to be maintaining stats for a cricket league.
Its goingto be:
Column A: Name, B: Games played, C: Runs(points)scored, D: Highest
Now, my problem is, since there are 168 players, and they'll be playing
around 16 games each whole season, I need to add up their stats
end-of-season as easily as possible.
I could use simple SUM(C1+C2+C3+...Cn) for the total runs and all, but

one? So I would want to see:
