CRM 3.0 and Microsoft VPC Help
I am trying to install Microsoft CRM 3.0 (VPC) and Microsoft VPC 5.3.582.45.
I can't figure out how to get the CRM image up and running. My CRM files are
loaded on an external hard drive.

I’m using MS Project 2007, have several task linked with finish to start. I
have set date to schedule from, hours per day set to 8 and Working Monday
My schedule shows Task 1 Duration 4 days, start Wed 6/2/10, Finish Mon 6/7/10
Task 2 Duration 3 days, start Mon 6/7/10, Finish Thu 6/10/10
Task 2 should have a Start Date of 6/8/10 not 6/7/10; what is causing this?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Good Day board,
Quick and to the point. I'm installing a trial copy of Microsoft CRM 3.0
that I got at a computer conference recently and I've gotten everything
to work in the System Requirements dialog except that it's telling me
that "The minimum required version is SQL Server 2000 SP4 (8.0.2026)".
Strange this is that I do believe that I have SQL Server 2005 installed
on the machine.
Any idea how to be absolutely sure of what version I have installed?

Is there a way to sort after conditional formatting. So, if I've set up a

then I want to sort so all red numbers are at the top of the spreadsheet?
Thanks for your time and assistance.

You can't sort by color, but you can add a column to your query like
SortColumn: Iif(SomeValue >= 0 and SomeValue <= 95, 1, 2)
Then sort by this column.

I was considering learning Excel as an additional tool for my data analysis
Is it better to use data sets that I have previously used with SPSS and
apply the same analysis tools as in SPSS? For applying the appropriate
tools, I was considering using excel's online help.
The second option I have is to use some excel book for data analysis and
apply the techniques to data sets provided with the book.

I haven't seen a whole lot of great documentation on this - so if someone

featured the Outlook/CRM integration is? I see there is an addin for Outlook
that gets installed, but it looks to me like it's nothing more than a
synchronization tool between Outlook and the SQL Server - am I right? It
looks like it syncs Contacts, Emails, Calendar dates, etc.

but none really say outright in exactly what way does Outlook and CRM

How do you change the APR in a Credit Card account? Like if you have to
change it from 13.250% to 14.240%
Depends on the version but (in M2007) go to the CC Account and click on
Change Account Settings. Scroll down to Credit Information and click on
Change Credit Details. If you want to change the Minimum payment rate/amount
as well, click on the Minimum payment amount and a side window opens.

After installing the CRM Outlook Client, when opening an email and selecting

I have posted a cemetery survey on Excell spreadsheet. When I try to sort
the birth dates or death dates in ascending or descending order the range of
1900 dates will sort but the 1800 dates fall after the 1900 and will not
sort. Why? Is this inherit with this program?
The WinXL default dates start with 31 December 1899, so earlier "dates"
are interpreted as Text.
You can use helper columns and text functions (LEFT(),RIGHT(),MID()) to
put the Year, Month and Day in separate columns, then sort.
