Activities for an Opportunity Order

Is there any way to have activities for an Order in an Opportunity rollup and 
appear in the Activities/History for the Opportunity?  They show up for the 
related account, but it would be helpful to be able to see these in the 
related Opportunity.

If you regard the activity against the order, and the order references
the opportunity then any activity you create against the order
(regarding the order) will appear in the history of the opportunity
when the view is set the "Related Records" (which is the default
view).  This is true for everything in CRM.  As long as you reference
the lowest branch in the tree of relationships the activity will
appear under the related records view of the parent trees.  For that
reason, you may want to consider always regarding the lowest branch on
the tree of entities, i.e. sending an e-mail to a contact without
regarding anything will make that e-mail appear in the contact's
history as well as their parent account history (when the view in
parent account history is set to related records).

Does anybody know of a 3rd party tool or a GP module that can do sales order scheduling - ie. using some kind of intelligent logic that looks at the requested ship date and the availability of items, generates a list of orders that can / should ship now (giving priority to orders w/ earlier ship dates). (Kind of a reverse PO Generator). We process 50 - 100 orders a day, and have 500 - 1000 open orders in the system at any given time (some dated months in the future). Right now, we are often stuck checking line by line whether an order can ship complete ... Thx in advance for any he...

Transfer Order to Invoice
I have an order with 10 line items. I am using a seperate fulfilment method. I have stock for all 10 line items. All of the inventory is allocated. I need to ship one line item ASAP. I fulfill that line item but when I transfer all of the line items transfer to the invoice but are unfulfilled. In version 9.0 only the line item fulfilled tranferred and other remained on the order. Is this a change in 10.0 and how do I get around it. The user does not want to have to create another order which would be a lot of work when it used to work the way they needed it to work.

vlookup not working (active)
I have a random problem with vlookup that I've not been able to figure out. Sometimes when I try to lookup a value on a different workbook using vlookup, the formula disappears when I swich to the other workbook. I'm wondering if this has something to do with the format that the workbooks are save in. To work around this problem I end up having to copy the worksheet from the other workbook and paste it into the workbook I'm doing the vlookup in. This works, but is rather annoying. What causes this problem, and what's the solution? If the =vlookup() formula disappea...

Activity creation issues
I have coma across a couple of issues when creating activities: 1) When creating phone call, regardless of the direction, the sender remains as the owner and the recipient the related customer (assuming this is created from within a contact's view). This means that the incoming phonecall is recorded as being sent by one of our staff, despite it being received by them. I have attempted to create workflow to rectify this but it appears to fail to fire (presumably because there is a conflict as one cannot simply get the sender/recipient to switch, resulting in duplicates, and thus e...

Credit memos / negative quantities on invoices/orders in general
Greetings, I am using the CRM SDK to create invoices and orders in CRM from a backend ERP system. It seems that the SDK will not allow any negative or zero dollar amount or quantity to be saved to either invoices or orders. Invoices are a more substantial problem for me since our customers want to run some simple sales reports from CRM directly and without credit memo's, the reports cannot be accurate. Am I doing something wrong with the SDK or is there some configuration in CRM itself that would allow the credits to be loaded? Regards, --Paul Galvin ISSG I had a similar p...

How do I reverse the row order in Excel, not based on content?
I need to flip an Excel worksheet containing many rows and columns 'top-to tail', so that, for example, row 1 becomes row 1000 and vice-versa. This does not fit the usual 'sort' criteria, as cell content is not relevant to the order. Am I missing a simple trick here? Just insert a new column and fill it with the numbers 1 to 1000 (or however many rows you have). There are several quick ways of doing this. Then sort (descending) by that column. Then delete that column. "Gimbalman" wrote: > I need to flip an Excel worksheet containing many rows and columns...

How to add new type of activity?
