Password box comes up when starting Outlook 07
I have SBS 2008 installed, and my Users are connected after running the Connect wizard to connect to the domain.

Move or Size Combo Box from forms toolbar With Cells
Hi : I would like to create a combo box from the forms toolbar and move or size it with cells so that if the rows or columns containing the box are hidden, the box will be hidden also.

move "Payables Cheque Entry" box
Unitl I figured the quirks of Great Plains, I made cheques from the "Payable Transaction Entry" window. It's a great feature to enter an invoice and print the cheque from the same window. However. When you enter a cheque amount, this "Payables Cheque Entry" box pops up, covering the cheque amount and the unapplied amount. After printing 3 or 4 cheques with the wrong amounts entered (the cheque amount different from the invoice amount), I learned to move the box aside to confirm the "on account" figure was zero.
