Help with columns #2
How do I create a worksheet with just 3 columns (A, B, C...) rather
than thousands (AA, BB, CC...)?
- first there's a maximum of 256 columns :-)
- You can only use these 3 columns (you can't delete the other columns)
- if you like you can hide the other columns. Just select theses
columns and goto 'Format - columns - Hide'

I chose the form "Newsletter - email".
I have created a 3 page newsletter. Now, I have NO IDEA how to send it out
as an email. I do not want to send it as an attachment. I cannot figure out
which "save as" format or what I need to do so that i can email this
newsletter. Is there a website that goes through how to do this?
Am I correct when I say that it has to be html in order for me to send it as
email? That is not one of the options.
Any help you give me would be greatly appreciated.
...Changing SQL Server for CRM 1.2
As my SQL server is currently on its last breath I am in the process of

I am trying to insert a char(1) field into a table from an ASP.Net/C#
At first I was inserting rows into the table but none of the columns that I

So I replaced the int column in the list with the char(1) column and since
the value of the char(1) column resulted from a CheckBox ('Y...How do you turn off/on the "1" or "2" or "+" or "-" view hide/unh.

I am interested in the experiences of others with implementing Microsoft CRM
3.0. I am a one man development team who has been tasked with implementing
CRM 3.0 with 30 users initially.
Our organization has been running on Lotus Notes for quite a while. We moved
to echange for e-mail over a year ago but still use Lotus for custom
databases. The first step will be pulling the data from Lotus Notes to CRM.
I have looked into the Microsoft CRM 3.0 Certification. There is a company
that offers a 10 day CRM 3.0 boot camp. Is this a good idea, and at what

I am having a problem migrating data from Business Contacts Manager (BCM)

I have racked my pea-sized brain for endless days for a way to associate
multiple existing contacts (or accounts) to an account.
My client has accounts that have many contacts (or accounts) involved at
different stages of acquiring a new account.
The logical method would be to add a custom attribute with lookup
functionality into the existing CRM contact or account objects but this is
not possible with CRM 1.x.
The resulting UI would allow an end user to associate different contacts (or
accounts) to an account. Example:

No, ideally it should pass the users AD credentials to the reporting IIS
