Business Portal Customizations #2
I have few questions on BP4 on MS Office SharePoint Server 2007 for GP10:
1) Is it possible to create a new business object using Web Services for GP
SDK? If so can you please point me to some samples/learning resources on this?
2) I think its possible to load a custom aspx web page in BP using tab web
part. Is it possible to determine the currently active company id/name and
pass it on to such a web page as a parameter?
3) Is it possible to convert a custom aspx web page into a web part for BP -
so that it can be added to the web part gallery?

We recently upgraded to GP 9 from 7.5 and moved from a SQL Server 2000 to a
SQL Server 2005 server. Ever since the upgrade all users have experienced
errors that result from the server process having been dropped and reassigned
to a new user, but DEX_SESSION still thinks the original user is connected to
the spid. Has anyone experienced this problem? Does anyone have a solution
or idea where to look? Thank you for any help you can provide.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge
T...1099 update for GP 7.5 for Dec 2006
Will there be a 1099 update for Great Plains 7.5 on SQL this December? I
know technical support ends January 2007, but I read that tax updates ended
this past August. Can anyone from Microsoft confirm whether or not I'll need
to do my update to 9.0 before year-end?
Other than the 1099 update, we are not in a rush - the client, for budgeting
purposes cannot update until next year. I realize the importance of updating
before technical support ends, but the client can't get funding.
No more tax updates for v7.5. You could check with third parties if you don't

Have created custom categories in Outlook 2002. An admin
made several changes to contacts using Outlook 2000. Now
when open contacts in Outlook 2002 custom categories are
all messed up. Ran across MS Article #303937 about custom
categories not transferring from 2000 to 2002. But what
about vice versa? Why are the custom categories messed up
when they were created in 2002? The admin only made
changes to the region portion of the address.

I have a finance spreadsheet I created for myself to plan my household budget

amongst the days I am planing for I created 2 views. One which displays all

goes on and I plan further down the sheet I'll want to edit the "part view" so
that it includes further rows which will be hidden. How do I do this? When I

Hi. I hope someone can help me with this:
We have 5 Ex 55 servers in 4 sites, configured in a Hub and spoke topology
We have just began the process of moving from Ex 5.5 on NT4 to Ex 2K3 on
W2K3 at the central site. We have already installed the first EX 2K3 server
and replication went great, with AD being replicated with disabled accounts
from the other sites. Problem is these accounts were deleted by our IT
security guys who did not know hat they were. Since the replication was
2-way, this deleted the directory entries in the respective remote sites.

A header or footer can be anywhere on the page. Open the header view and
insert a (borderless?) text box in the left margin to take your margin text
then close the header view.
