Microsoft CRM 3.0 Installation 11-08-07
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?
Have you choosed the right name of SQL server during installation set-

If not how can we create it?
Thanks in advance.
Exchange 2007 has the "Universal Messaging" role which is intended for this
purpose. Do you have a PBX?

I dont know if i need to ask this question here or in the Access section. I
have an ODBC connection to the Project Server database so I can make reports
through Access. Access' limit of 255 fields per table is causing me some
trouble. for example, the MSP_VIEW_PROJ_PROJECTS_ENT table has well over 255
fields. Access only shows me the first 255 fields. how can I change that so I
can see all the fields in that table?
I have not tried this yet it may be a viable option. Have your DBA create a
view that pulls the key fields to this table and the specifi...More Columns #2

As Frank said, that's the maximum cols
But maybe you could try transposing your table / data ?
(Excel has a lot more rows than columns)
If so, try: http://tinyurl.com/2nmyy

I have a work book that is linked to another and vise versa.
Workbook A is where the input of data is made;
Workbook B has a link to the input from workbook A;
Workbook A retrieves the altered data back as a link.
Although this all works fine with both books open, I note that if I open
workbook A by itself, that the data it retrieves from Workbook B is not
updated . If However, both books are open, there's no problem. I thought
linked books were updated automatically if the Update remote references has
been selected?? But it appears that the second book is not updated until it
...Reading SQL Server Extended Properties
I have an Access 2003 front-end (mdb/mde) connected to a SQL Server 2000
back-end. SQL Server 2000 offers the ability to add extended properties
(such as a caption, for example) to objects (tables, columns, etc.) using a
stored procedure called sp_AddExtendedProperty, along with the ability to
retrieve the values of these extended properties via a function named
With fn_ListExtendedProperty, four columns can be returned/selected using a

Hi im trying to enable RPC over HTTP to enable users to establish contact to
my Excahger server 2003 over the internet.
Now, I dont want to use SSL (security not that important) and i am told by
this article that i can disable SSL in windows registry.
Note While RPC over HTTP does not require Secure Sockets Layer, you must
modify the registry to enable RPC over HTTP if you do not want to use Secure
Sockets Layer. Microsoft recommends that you enable and require Secure
Sockets Layer for your RPC over HTTP communications.

Its that time of year again, Audit time.
The auditors have come across a very strange problem it seems that around
October of last year random employees have had there OT pay rates increased
to 1.51 (instead of the standard 1.50), I cant for the life of me figure out
how this has come to be. Has anyone come across this problem before? And is
there something I can do to fix or prevent this from reoccurring? It’s just
not feasible to check each employee every week before payroll. Im certain
that the employees were setup correctly initially.

I have set my current workbook to split/freeze the first column and first 2

are cut off if I should scroll down.
I don't ever remember the behavior before. And I don't know what I've done
to enable it but it's really annoying.

I recently added an Exchange 2003 server to the same org as a 2000 server. I
have dbs from the 2000 server that I need to restore to retrieve email from a
user whose mailbox was moved to 2003. So I need to restore the db for that
mailbox from BEFORE it was moved because when you move mailboxes you lose any
deleted items that were being saved by retention policy.
Is this possible? I'm using Veritas Backup Exec 10 but nothing in their
support KB seems to follow this exact scenario.
If it helps, the old Exch 2000 server is currently empty of users and is

there a way that I can accomplish this through the back-end?

for WINDIR would point to that user-specific Windows folder. Is this thinking

I think you also have to make certain that the dex.ini does NOT exist in the
program install location for GP or it will still look to that.

looks like it syncs Contacts, Emails, Calendar dates, etc.
