CRM 3.0 Support

I would like to know from Microsoft CRM support what modes of data
input into CRM do not void Microsoft CRM support.  There are 3 that I
think are OK:

1)  Put data into the CDF staging database and use the CRM Data
Migration Wizard to move the data into CRM
2)  Use the CRM SDK web services to insert data into CRM
3) Use Scribe to insert data into CRM (I assume Scribe uses the CRM
SDK)

One that I think voids support is

1) Inserting data directly into the CRM database using SQL Insert
statements, BCP, select into, or bulk inserts.

Can someone from Microsoft CRM support confirm this?

Thanks!

For completeness you should really include the 'Import' facility within the 
product - but this is limited - you can only import Contacts, Leads, 
Accounts and Campaign Responses.

Autofit Row Height #3
Hello, I have a column on sheet 1 that is set to wrap text so that the row height increases and decreases as more text is entered into the cell. This works fine. Users enter a number on sheet two where there is a lookup function that returns the appropriate text from sheet 1. The problem is that when the text is returned by the function, the row height does not adjust to fully display all of the text in the cell. Is there a way of automating this? Any help would be appreciated. -- Thanks, MarkN ...

Protection Problem #3
I have a 3 sheet excel file with protection on all 3 sheets (let's call them A, B and C). These 3 pages have formulas that link to each other. Sheet A has a few checkboxes that link to sheet C. The problem is that when I try to check any of the check boxes on sheet A an error box pops up that says "The cell or chart you are trying to change is protected and therefore read only". Is there a way to protect a sheet while being able to check a box off that is linked to another sheet? What protection options would allow me to do this? Thanks in advance.

Date format of 0 and if statements
I have an is statment as such: =IF('Raw Data'!A5=0,,'Raw Data'!A5) This issue I have is when I format fields as "date" and the reference cell = 0 excel formates the cell as 01/00/00. I have also used the formula: =IF('Raw Data'!A5=0,"",'Raw Data'!A5) The issue I have is I want to create graphs of this data in a dynamic fashion, but when the data range of the graph encounters either "" or 1/00/00 as a date, it plots it as a data point. I need a way to make my IF statment to produce a BLANK or EMPTY cell. Is there a key word in...
