Tools>Options>General  uncheck "Ignore other Applications"
Exit Excel and try again

If this doesn't work try to re-register Excel

Close Excel first and
On the Windows Taskbar

1 ) Start>Run "excel.exe /unregserver"(no quotes)>OK.
2) Start>Run "excel.exe /regserver"(no quotes)>OK.
See the space between exe and /regserver

You might have to designate a full path to excel.exe.
In that case Start>Run "C:\yourpath\excel.exe /regserver"(no quotes)>OK.

Change default Sent folder location
I have configured two email accounts in Outlook. One using Exchange client and another POP3 account which is set as default. When I sent any email from Exchange client account, I want that email to appear in my personal sent folder and not in Exchange client folder.

Default Postal Address & Applescript
Hi, I'm trying to retrieve the default postal address of a contact using Applescript. The applescript I'm using is: set thisDefaultPostal to name of default postal address of theContact Where 'theContact' contains a list of contacts. For some reason the command returns 28005 for home and 29291 for work postal addresses. What is the significance of these numbers?

Track items in non-default Outlook folders
It is important to be able to "Track in CRM" Outlook items from non-default outlook folders. Some users (assistants to managers) have access to the Outlook calendar and Mailbox of the manager in order to schedule appointments and send email on behalf of the manager. They are currently unable to create any CRM outlook items on behalf of the manager as only their own outlook profile (and their default calendar) supports tracking in CRM (in CRM3.0). They do not use CRM appointment and email funcitonality from the CRM forms (outside of Outlook folders) due to the fact that you...

Track email in CRM
When in Outlook and you click "Track in CRM" and you go to set the "Regarding" field, the search scope defaults to Account. Is there any way to change this so that it defaults to Contact?

How to change default formatting
How can I prevent Excel guessing what it thinks I want to type in a cell (mainly text).

Double parentheses when scripting defaults
I have a monitor that compares schemas of tables and reports any changes between servers, I've noticed, there are some servers that all their default definitions have double parentheses, after trying to change it back to "normal" they come back, also when creating new tables (using either management studio or t-sql) the double parentheses come back, this happens server wide, regardless of database. This only happens on specific servers, leading me to believe it might be some server settings (or some bug related to one). Anyone knows the cause of this? all these t...

Outlook default attachment folder question?
Hi all, Currently when I save an email (like in OneNote) I notice that the attachment file points to my C:\Documents....... folder. Is there a way to have Outlook save the files to another directory specifically the one on another drive where I store all of my Outlook files (e.g. pst)? There are times when I reformat and I'm worried about those files not being availible afterards on my C: drive. I'm using OL 2007 Thanks Kita No. I put the new location on the places bar (or in the shortcut area if using vista) so the new location is just a click away. Or you can put shortcuts t...

How to revert back to default color palatte from custom
Excel 2003 Somehow my color palatte changed from default to custom. I want to change it back to default. I've tried opening up a template that has the colors I want, only to have it too (grr) revert to the custom palatte. Any ideas? Carole O Colors travel with the workbook. So if you reset the colors in one workbook, it doesn't affect any other existing workbook. If you're really editing the template (and not a new workbook based on that template), make sure you save that template. Carole O wrote: > > Excel 2003 > > Somehow my color palatte changed fr...

Default Labor class in BP 2.5 project time entry
I have setup the business portal and configured a couple of project users to access the project time entry screen. I would like to customize this screen by making the labor class invisible, however it is not populated by default on the portal web page (although it is on backoffice version).

Specify Default Ship To Address for POs
Would like to be able to specify, either within the POP Setups or Company Setups, which company address should default as the ship to address for POs. Currently it takes the main address in the Company Setup window (Tools>>Setup>>Company>>Company). In our case it is a PO Box. Each time a PO is written, the purchaser has to remember to expand the Vendor ID field and go in and change the ship to address. Most of the time it is for the same warehouse. If we could default this warehouse address for all POs, it would save us a lot of time and errors. Thanks, Eleni -----...
