What is Happening?
This message is to inform you that Microsoft will soon begin discontinuing
newsgroups and transitioning users to Microsoft forums.

As you may know, newsgroups have existed for many years now; however, the
traffic in the Microsoft newsgroups has been steadily decreasing for the
past several years while customers and participants are increasingly finding
solutions in the forums on Microsoft properties and third party sites.  This
move will unify the customer experience, centralize content, make it easier
for active contributors to retain their influence, mitigate redundancies and
make the content easier to find by customers and search engines through
improved indexing.  Additionally, forums offer a better user and spam
management platform that will improve customer satisfaction by encouraging a
healthy discussion in a clean community space.  To this end, Microsoft will
begin to progressively shift available resources to the forums technology
and discontinue support for newsgroups.

In addition to offering a compelling online browser experience, for those
users who prefer to use an NNTP (newsgroup) reader to participate in the
newsgroups community, we have developed a solution called the NNTP Bridge
which allows a user to connect a variety of supported NNTP readers to the
forums they would like to participate in and continue having the NTTP reader
functionality.  You can find instructions on how to download and set up the
NNTP Bridge here: http://connect.microsoft.com/MicrosoftForums/

Which Newsgroups Are Affected by this Shutdown?
All public newsgroups will eventually be closed between June 1, 2010 and
October 1, 2010.  Microsoft will be closing newsgroups in a phased approach,
starting with the least active newsgroups and moving eventually to more
active ones throughout the course of the next six months.

When will this Happen?
Effective September 12, 2010 this newsgroup will be closed.

Where Should I go with the Closure of this Newsgroup?
In an effort to enhance and improve your experience, this newsgroup is scheduled for closure in the upcoming months and we would like to invite you to participate at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/xmlandnetfx/threads forum(s).  An exact date will be posted in advance as plans are finalized. 

Should you want to visit the other Microsoft Forums, please go to

Who Should I Contact with any Questions?
Send any questions about the process, recommended forums and timing to

Sample Company GP 8 date
In GP 8, when we use sample company, the date will be automatically set to 2007. Is there a way to make the date work normally? Check the knowledgebase to see if you can find anything.

MS POS 2.0 and Office Account 2007

entering value in column A
Hello, My users requested this functionality: They enter values in, say, column A. Column B should be filled automatically accordingly by executing some VBA-code (querying a database). Problem is that column A also might be filled by VBA-code - meaning that above functionality only should trigger if the user fills in column A. (I wonder if if is possible to differentiate between these cases). I'm not quite sure if I should use a Worksheet_Change() or Worksheet_SelectionChange() event. Or is there another more appropriate way to handle this requirement? We're using Office 2007. than...

Money 2005 DeLuxe #2
Just downloaded as oart of my TaxCut purchase. Had some start up issues after downloading my accounts, but was able to work them through successfully.

Otherwise, I am satisifed (never thought I would say this.) so far, at least. Some people seem to be complaining about the program's speed. I am An AMD 2600+ and 1 gig RAM, and the program runs fine. My CPU is not exceptionally fast, but perhaps the large amount of Memory helps. If this is the case, ...
