Customizing UI

Hi there,

I have searched thru the SDK documentation on the microsoft web, and found
this:

"Note   Beyond adding custom buttons and menus, developers do not have the
ability to change the functionality of the Microsoft CRM application."

Does this mean that if I want to hide some of the navigation tabs, such as
the Competitors tab from the Opportunity form, it is not possible? Has
anyone done this before? And if so, how? Is it supported?

TIA,
Rich Phan

Custom Number Format for Weight
I have a formula that I would like to display the result as pounds and ounces. I created and custom format that will display as (for example) "14.25 lbs" but I would like it to display as 14 lbs 4 oz. It must display as a number and not text. Any help would be great! Thanks, Tom, No can do with a format, methinks. How about displaying pounds and ounces in another cell (column)? =INT(A2) & " lbs " & MOD(A2,1)*16 & " oz" This yields a text string, so you can't do any math on it; use the original (A2) cell for that. -- Earl Kiosterud mvpear...

Customized Format
At a minimum, I'd like to enter: 1st 2nd 3rd 4th etc. and have the cells formatted as: 1st of the month 2nd of the month 3rd of the month 4th of the month etc. Ideally, I'd like the cells formatted the same after entering only the number. Does someone have a suggestion? To just enter numbers, you could use a formula in another cell - enter a number in cell A2, and use =A2 & IF(A2=31,"st",CHOOSE(MIN(MOD(A2,20),4)+1,"th","st","nd","rd","th"))& " of the month" Or enter 1st, 2nd ...

E.g. in the onchange of the account/contact field, fill in the name in the subject field. If you prefer server-side code you could also use callouts to do the same. Callouts have the advantage that they also trigger when creating an activity using the SDK. Javascript only works when working in the web/outlook client...
