How to create a CustomerID field for custom entities
The customerid field is used in opportunity and case and it allows you
to select an account or contact, Great.
I want to create this field in a form for a new entity i have made,
but i cant work out how.
Customer is special composite type which is not available for custom
entities in CRM 3. You will need to add two separete lookup fields for
account and contact.

&...Using iterations to calculate circular references.
I am working with data that requires using circular references in some
calculations. I checked the "iterations" box to allow for these calculations
to work, and Ecxel seems to be calculating everything correctly. The problem
is that after I close the workbook, when I later reopen it to continue
working, all the cells that are a part of the circular reference display the
#VALUE! error. I can fix this by deleting one cell that is part of the loop
and then undoing that command, or by copying the formula from a cell,
deleting it, and pasting it back into the same cell. I have to d...Microsoft CRM using Firefox
Would anyone by chance know if CRM will work correctly on Firefox.
Currently, I have employees that are using Firefox and are encountering the
same issue as IE [Internet Explorer bombs out and states that it has

problem. Thank you for your comments in advance.

...Between using Sumproduct
Is there a way to enter a date value that is between 2 dates in sumproduct
or another function that will look at the same column and return the sum of
a different column? If the value is greater than May 1,2007 but less than
August 31, 2007 in column A it will return the sum of the matching rows in
I have tried this with either greater than OR less than and it works but,
when I try them in the same sumproduct() it fails.
Thanks for reading and any information to the right direction.

I need help creating a neighborhood directory template using Publisher and

What version Publisher?
If you have 2003 use the catalog merge for your directory.
Otherwise you need to setup your page as though it is labels. Determine the size
of the area you need for each entry, select labels in page setup, type the size
you determined in the page setup. Adjust the gaps and margins when you are ready

I have a Access/VBA client that exports xml to the local drive, then posts it
over http to an aspx page. The aspx page consumes it, then builds itself
based on the xml data.
This works find only if I first mannually change the root entry's namespace

Here is the top three lines of my xml export (prior to mannually changing it):

Is there anyway that you can stop, or restrict the use of a distribution list?
Since you have so much detail of how you are setup and if there are specific

give you a better answer.

Karl was great in helping me get to this point with dates, now I'm wondering
if we can take it 1 step further?
For Activity Dates prior to 2/1/2007 they are using a normal reporting year

So for example prior to 2/1/2007
1/1/2006 would have a B_Qtr of 2006-1
1) B_Qtr - 2011-1 --- Format(DateAdd("m",11,[ActivityDate]), "yyyy - q")
2) Year - 2011 ---- Year(DateAdd("m",11,[ActivityDate]))
