Adding multiple contact relationships to an account

I am having no success in my attempts to add two fields to the account form. 
Both are Many to 1 relationship attributes, on is a technical contact, the 
other is a billing contact. These two fields should appear on the account 
form in the same manner as the primary contact field that is on the form by 
default.

My problem is that whenever I attempt to create a new Many to 1 relationship 
in the account entity, the primary entity drop down list only shows my custom 
entities, the contact entity is not displayed.

This seems to be a trivial change, but appears to not be allowed by CRM.

Can anyone shed any light on this? Am I missing a step or something?

Your problem appears to be that you are attempting to create two additional 
references to existing entity (Contact). Plus, by definition, all 
relationships between system entities (those included on the CD) have been 
defined. You cannot add additional relationships between Account and 
Contact.

Lost Outlook contacts
I recently backed up my hard drive on DVD, then also kept the entire contents to another HD. I then reformated my C; drive, and reinstalled all of my programs. When I searched for my outlook info, I could only find backups I had specifically made for export (These are .PST files).

Multiple domains on one Exchange server / All but one domain shows up as spam #2

Lets say abc.com, def.com, and hij.com. We only send email with @abc.com but can receive from any domain name. Recently we merged with another company and we brought back their email to our server, lets say xyz.com. Now I configured a new recipient on Exchange 2003, so I now have two policies. The first policy has the three original domains in it with @abc.com as the primary domain. In the second policy I have configured xyz.com t...

Adding support for mfc / atl types in a Win32 project
MSDN says this about adding support for classes shared between atl & mfc (I'm just after points and rects btw)... just add the header ( atltypes.h ).

In the project wizard I note that atl and mfc support aren't available when creating an empty Win32 application. Ta.

How to track ActiveControl.Name when switching records in form with multiple subforms
I need to have a global variable always contain the name of the current form field. This bit of code is attached to the GotFocus event of all fields and the Enter event of all subforms: gxCurrentField = Me.ActiveControl.Name However it doesn't work properly when changing records in a subform. My parent form contains two subforms in a many-to-many relationship. The above variable usually ends up containing the name of the first field in the second subform when switching records in the first subform. How to correctly code this? Or is there some native variable I'm not aware of? I...

Performance By Investment Account
I've been trying to analyze the return calculations that MS Money provides in both the Portfolio Manager and also the Performance by Investment Account. One curious thing that I've come across and had previously not paid attention to is a feature in the Performance by Investment Account.

It defaults to 90 days. Does anyone know if this feature actually does anything? I'v...

Opening Multiple Web Links in a Column

I am quite sure I am doing it the slowest way possible, so I need some help please. Basically I have been clicking on one link at a time. When I do this, the first website opens and excel automatically minimizes, then I have to go re maximize excel and then click the next web link and the same thing happens, etc... very time consuming.

I Want a Warning Before Sending Email to Certain Contacts
