Question on the Feature Comparison shape (in Charting Shapes)
How do I modify the Feature Comparison shape (in Charting Shapes) with more
than 10 rows/columns in Visio 2007
I'm trying to build a chart that is 12 columns, by 18 rows.
The shape is "mis-behaving" when I try to change it.
The Feature Comparison shape is really a grouped shape that contains 10 rows
and 10 columns that you choose to reveal or hide depending on the custom
properties you set ('Set Fields...').
So if you want to extend this you can either edit the shape and add more
rows and columns to the group (bear in mind that each ...New so-called features in Outlook 2002 -- can they be defeated?
Hello all. Our office recently got "upgraded" to Outlook
2002. It has a couple of so-called "features" which I
find incredibly annoying and impossible to defeat. I'd be
interested if anyone has found a way, other than the
ridiculous workarounds listed on Microsoft's website. The
two features which annoy me most are:
Displaying both the name and the email address in email
Displaying two entries in the "Select Names" dialog box
for everyone who has both a fax and an email address, that
is, virtually everybody.

Cheers Matt Problem Sorted
> Dave: Since CRM uses Windows authentication, you shouldn't have to pass credentials. And if you are logged on as User A (with no CRM license) and you try to launch CRM as User B (with CRM license) you will likely run into a number of security-related errors.

I recently upgraded from CRM 1.2 to CRM 3.0. As a result I can no

Since I am trying to install MS CRM on a SBS2K enviroment, I do not have an
installation enviroment that has multiple domain controllers. So I have
tried the solution of the second primary cause but it did not work.
I have uninstalled SQL, deleted the files that can not be uninstalled,
reinstalled the SQL and SP2 then installed CRM. Unfortunately I have
received the same 80040e14 error while creating the metabase db.
Any further comments?

Ok, not sure where to ask this. We are about to migrate from an older
database that is part SQL 2000 and part Visual Fox Pro 6 and Mas 90 to CRM

be and not sure if there is any good guidelines on this area. We have about
80 full time staff and at any given time at least 30 in our database and up
to 7 people in the accounting program.
Thanks in advance

...CRM 4.0 Outlook client hangs on folders
We are experiencing problems with the Outlook "online" client. Outlook 2007
starts up just fine and the CRM features seem to work well but when
navigating subfolders of e.g. the Inbox the list of messages never loads. The
progress thingy that appears when loading is all we get.
I ran the client diagnostics and it mentioned that I had many messages in
the folders. Yup, that's why a need a tool like Outlook to help me organize
them. I have around 3000 messages in my inbox but the same thing happens when
selecting another folder.
Any and all help would be appreciated.

...How can I promote a email to a new CRM case?
Often, we get customers mailing our firstname.lastname@example.org account and
they are often new incidents. The promote to CRM activity is great,
but it does not look like I can create a new case with it, just
associate it with an existing case.
Did microsoft forget this very obvious workflow, or is it me that's
missing something obvious?
This is a common question. While it is an "obvious" need, there are plenty
of implementation details related to doing it that make it difficult.
Thus, you need to create the case first.

that I am vaguely thinking of writing my own CRM package, but I need to find
