Creating a new field based on conditions
I have a database that tracks insurance information for our various vendors. Each insurance type has 2 fields - a requirement field (yes/no), and an effective field (some show an expiration date, some are yes/no). I have created a query that will return only the records for which insurance is required but is expired/missing. My problem is that I want to create a new field that is calculated based on the values in the other two fields in order to make the resulting report more user-friendly. For example, if GLRequired is True and GLExpiration is <Now(), I want the new field to say...

Creating array of specific object types dynamically
Hi, little gotcha. Some COM objects requires array of specific type. To give you example, following DOESN'T work: [array]$X = @() However below code works: [int32[]]$X = @() For my framework, array type can be dynamic and I don't know in advance what type it's going to be. So what I would need is below: [$PropertyType[]]$X = @() This doesn't work with error message "Unable to find type". As a workaround, I solved it using following: Invoke-Expression "[$$PropertyType[]]`$Var = @()" This code works as expected, I am just curious if ...

Invoice Designer #3
I'm running Money Small Business 2004. I have gone into the invoice designer section of the program, and created an invoice template that I wish to use to print out my invoices. However I cannot find any way of getting the invoices created within Money to print out in this format. Is there any way to save this template so that it overwrites the standard invoice template which is quite unsuitable for my requirements (or is there some other way of getting the layout that I want?). None of the the help files within the program, the on-line Money 2004 manual or the web-based help files s...

Create static text from cell reference
Hey everyone... I have two columns of text which I'm combining in a third column using the formula (for C1, for example) =A1 & char(10) & B1 This gives me the contents of A1 on a line above the contents of B1 and works fine.

Trying to create an Update query based on HR data to find upline V
Hi All, looking for some advice. I have an HR table that contains employee information but does not contain management chain info. Basically i am trying to determine who the employees upline VP is. The fields i have to work with are [Employee Name], [Manager Name] and [Job Title]. I figure the logic would be to check the employees' manager and if the manager is a VP (based on job title), return the manager's name to a field called [VP]. If the manager is not a VP then check that manager's manager, so on and so forth until a VP is found. Any ideas would be much appr...

"x" button enables deletion.... can we put a focus trigger there?
Hi, on three forms, I put focus triggers on the "delete" button because I need to validate some additional data before allowing the user to delete. However, if the user clicks on the corner "x" button to close the form and gets the dialogue box saying they have changes, do they want to "Save", "Delete" or "Cancel", they can delete the record anyways. Is there any way to put a focus trigger on the button of the dialogue box, or on the "x" button? Thanks in advance. I assume you are working with Dexterity. To work with an add...

Can you create custom activities? MSCRM 3.0
Hi, Is there a way to create a new custom activity instead of customising an existing one? I have created a custom entity called 'Chat' utilising an IFRAME.

In fact I've just been introduced to MS-CRM 3.0 and don't really understand what the difference is between an entity and activity. Would anyone shed the light for me? BTW, I think 3.0 looks great.
