How do you have them setup and how do you want them to work?

Kicking users out of database
I have a split database. There are times when I need to access the backend to make changes or additions, but often it is always open by a user.

Multiple Account Lookup fields
Hi all, These newsgroups have been an immense wealth of knowledge, thank you to all who contribute! I have one item that I'm struggling with. I have added a custom entity and added two N:1 relationships back to the accounts. This is giving me two lookup fields on the form for the custom entity which is what I wanted. However, what I didn't realised is I now show the custom entity twice on the Account form. I'll give an example of what I'm looking for, let's say I have a custom entity for a Building. What I want is to have a lookup field linked to an Account fo...

Money Bug 03/04: Stock Changes it's name but Maoney wont let that happen.
I have seen this in Money 2003 and now 2004. A company, such as DELL changes it's name but not is it symbol. When I download transactions Money asks if the new name is the same investment as the old name (obviously it is as they have the same symbol). I say yes it is the same. Money asks "Are You Sure Dell Computers is the same as Dell Inc". Regardless of how I answer this confirm It asks the first question again, and again and again and again until I admit that Dell Inc is NOT Dell Computer. Only then can I continue the reconcile. Every time I upgrade I wish I did not. I...

How do you get changes in the HQ Db picked up by Worksheets
Many times we need to make large volume changes to products in our RMS databases (over 26000 SKUs). We use MS Access queries to make those changes. Right now those changes need to be made in HQ and each of the SO databases. I would like to be able to make them in the HQ Db only and have the RMS work sheet process propigate the changes to all the SO Dbs. I am assuming that the DBTimestamp is what is being used to determine what records need to be update or not. How do I update the timestamp using MS Access to make this happen? Thanks, TomT If you can represent the ...

Incorporating extender fields into the smartlist
Hi everybody, I have created a couple of extender fields under purchasing>Receiving Transactions Entry. I need to bring these fields under the smartlist relevant to the same window. Can anybody help me on this please. Thanks Hi Victor. In GP 8, if you go back to the design of the eXtender window, you should see a button on the lower right marked Smartlist. From there, you have to select which smartlist objects to integrate with. There may be a small delay between setting this up and actually having access to the fields in Smartlist.

Allow VBA code to change a locked cell??
Hi, I am using Excel 2007. I have written some VBA code that sets the values in certain cells using code like the following: Worksheets("MySheet").Range("A5") = MyValue This code works when my worksheet is not protected and cell A5 is not locked.

Duplicating PivotChart / Changing PivotChart data range
I have a worksheet with a pivottable and an associated pivotchart, all nicely formatted. I want to make a duplicate of this so I can configure the data selection differently, but still retain the formatting. In Excel 2003, I just duplicated the worksheet and the new pivotchart would be associated with the new pivottable. In Excel 2007, I find the new pivotchart is *still* tied back to the original pivottable. Is there a way around this? If I select the PivotChart Tools, I see 'Select Data', but the section for "Chart data range" is grayed out and will not allow edits. I t...

Cannot change criteria on copied chart without changing original c

Need to change text to csv
My credit card company has an export feature. One of the options is ".csv (Excel). This used to give me a nice clean spreadsheet with each column of information in a separate Excell column. I guess it converted on the fly or something.

Incrementing a Field to the Next Value
Hello: I need a T-SQL query that returns a string value and, from the latest dataset that I have, returns the next number. This would be, then, that string value "+1". Now, regardless of whether there are leading 0's, I want SQL to return the next number for this string field. This, in essence, is the value returned from the query "+ 1". So, if the value in the field were 000039, then I would want SQL through this T-SQL query to return "40". Or, if the field were 1157, I would want it to return "1158”. In other words, I want for...

Changing exchange 2k3 administrator password
Greetings- My company really needs to change the exchange 2k3 admin password for security reasons (old employees possess that password). It needs to be done but I am apprehensive. I am afraid to change it because I am worried that it might affect services. I don't want to bring our mail system down. Are my fears appropriate or will it not affect mail services? Thanks for any input. There is no E2003 System Administrator account per se in E2003 as it was in Exch 5.5, Exchange 200x runs under the local system account, so unless you have done something screwy or are in mixed mode , there sho...
