Opportunity with null originating lead ID can't be closed error ?

I'm finding that opportunities created from scratch (ie. NOT converted
from leads) give me an error when I try to close them, perhaps due to
a NULL originating lead ID.

Has anyone else noticed this ?

virtually all our opportunities are created from scratch ie not converted
from leads so this is not a known issue. What error are you getting?

Thanks, John for your reply.

As it turns out, the problem was that the Expected Revenue field on
the opportunity wasn't being initiated.  This was happening because we
set the radio button for 'Revenue' to user-provided, but didn't make
the field mandatory.  So when you added an opportunity, CRM would fill
the field with the default of spaces.

When the pop-up window tried to initialize the "Actual Revenue" box
from the Expected Revenue box, it was failing on a type mismatch.

Additional lookup for contacts on opportunity form
Hi, I try to customise CRM 3.0 without any training - therefore a question for which I need some help. On the opportunity form exists a look-up (potentional customer) for contacts/accounts. I'd like to add an aditional one to the form (to replace the decision maker). I tryed to create a new field on the opportunity entity but there's no field-type "look-up". It's also not possible to create a new relationship to the contact entity (both system entity's). Does anybody of you know how I can do this? (if yes - please explain it more detailed...).

Event ID 1016 logged for sending an email
I recently emailed a co-worker (at 11:42am). I was then later shown a security log that showed Event ID 1016 was logged at 11:42am saying that I accessed her mailbox. I did no such thing! I've researched the knowledgebase and found some info on this topic, but can anyone tell me how I can definitively clear my name? Has this happened to anyone else - simply sending an email caused 1016 to log? I realize that checking the other person's calendar could also do this, but I don't think I did that either. My job could be on the line. Thanks for any help you can provide. (...

Close Event for the Database (?)

Is it possible to generate non-technical schema validation errors?
With the 1.0 Framework, I've worked out using the XmlValidatingReader.

An error occurred at file:///c:/work/prodika/main/code/apps/schemavalidation/XMLFile1.xml(8, 25)." and go with a user friendly message of "Max Dependents must be between 0 and 10".

FP: Couldnt close table
We have been receiving this error on two separate PCs after a recent upgrade to 7.5. Our version is 7.50g43 (service pack 5).

This PC is Win98, 64MB RAM, 600Mhz. The second PC has 128MB RAM also Win98. I don't believe switching to XP is an option right now. This message has appeared in the payables module on both machines.
