Printer set changes when accessing GP from Terminal services

Hi,

We are using GP8.  My colleague had issues when she tries to print invoices 
from a GP client installation using terminal services.  I help her to change 
the printer to a physical printer.  But it changed back to a different one 
such as image writer.    

How the printer setting works for terminal services in GP?

Access CRM from Internet
Hello Everybody, Can anybody please post detailed instructions on how to access Microsoft CRM from Internet. I've spent quite a bit of time searching this group and could see people talking about SSL and ISA, but not in much details. I also went through Implementation Guide, it mentions ISA, but our site doesn't have ISA installed. So, what are the options in accessing CRM from Internet, apart from ISA? And how to implement it?

How can I change default setting in Office start-up?
I need to change the default setting on my Word, Excel and PPT programs (MS Office 2004) so when they open they aren't at, for example, Word 11.3.0, rather at Word 11.2.3. I mac OSX, a G5. When I do a control click on any of those programs, go to "get info" and then choose the 11.2.3 that I want to open with, it does it no problem. When I click "change all" it doesn't change the default -- the 11.3.0 is always the default despite that I'm trying to change all. How do I fix this? BTW this whole problem started when someone at the genius bar deleted one of the...

Opening Second Instance of Access
Running MSA2K3. I have this problem a lot. I have an MDB open and I run a query. It uses up most of my CPU, but I'm still able to open and work in other applications (IE, Lotus Notes, whatever). However, if I try to open another MDB, it doesn't seem to open until the other MDB finishes processing. If I enter debug mode in MDB #1, then MDB #2 opens right up. What I think is happening is when I open MDB #2, Windows/Access sees there's another instance of Access running, so it uses the first instance to load the MDB--instead of just starting another instant of Access.

Excel 2003 not understanding Access 2003 "like"
I have a number of Access queries linked and displayed in an Excel workbook by way of Data, Import External Data, Import Data. Some of the criteria and select statements in the queries use the keyword "Like" (e.g. Like "*Smith" to pull up all names ending in "Smith"). These statements seem to be completely ignored by Excel so that records I should see are not appearing in the workbook. This worked fine in versions 97 (from which we've just upgraded) so is this a version 2003 bug? If so, is there a fix? ...

Prevent change to refs in second worksheet when drag cells in firs
I have a complex calendar in Excel. Each week, admins Ctrl-drag cells among different locations in the primary calendar worksheet. I have a second worksheet that needs to list those cell values in a fixed configuration, e.g. the value in Sheet1!A1 needs to always appear in the cell of Sheet2!G10. Sheet2!G10 contains the formula: “Sheet1!$A$1”. If the user drags Sheet1!A1 to Sheet1!A3, the formula in Sheet2!G10 gets automatically updated to “Sheet1!$A$3”. I have tried all combos of locking and protecting to prevent this updating. Is there a way to do this? Try referencing the other shee...

Pocket PC will not synch "a program is trying to access email..." warning.
I am trying to synch my PocketPC (Jornada 548 running PPC2000) with Outlook 2003 SP1. I keep getting the "A program is trying to access email messages you have stored in Outlook" message. I am running the latest ActiveSynch 3.7.1. Basically this prevents me from synching remotely or over my network unless I am right there at the PC to let it though.

My Reports in GP 10.0
Hello: An end user of GP 10.0 has reported something intertesting to me on "My Reports" on the home page. If she switches companies (or when she first logs in at the beginning of the day) and clicks on "My Reports", she gets an "illegal address" error. The error is remedied by clicking "Customize this page", clicking the expansion button next to "My Reports", and checking all of the boxes next to her reports. Then, she does not get the error. But, it's kind of annoying for her to have to do this all of the time. Do you know wh...

Using icon sets with relative references
I am using Excel 2007 in the Vista OS. I am trying to use conditional formatting with an icon set in a column but Excel will not allow relative references. Example: A1=10 min B1=20 max C1=30 oh D1=a formula { =IF(C1=0,B1,(B1-C1)) } The condtional formatting of D1 would be: if the value showing in D1 is >B1 the cell would show a red 'X', if the value showing in D1 is <A1 the cell would show a green 'check mark', and if the value showing in D1 is between the values in A1 and B1 it would show a yellow 'exclamation point'.

Cant Change AutoCorrect List
I am using Office 2007 B2 TR, and I have found a problem with the AutoCorrect functionality. I removed some entries from the autocorrect list (the wingding smilies specifically), but it doesn't actually remove them. Every time I go back and write a new email, they are back. I have tried through the message options, through the general outlook options, and through the autocorrect smart-tag options. No matter how I try to get rid of those autocorrect entries, they keep coming back. Is there some magical way to get rid of them, or is this just a bug in the TR? Thanks in advance, - Art...

Change owner of a template in P12
Hi, is there any possibility to change the owner of a template? Usually project owners can be changed in the Project Center of Project Server 2007, but templates are not shown in the Center - or am I mistaken in that point? Background: A user created a template on the server and is thus the owner of the template. But we would like to change this owner to be another user. Thanks for your suggestions! The template owner, which has no meaning in the grand scheme of things, is always the person who saved the template to the server. If you want to change the owner, then dele...

Service time billing and security
Can MSCRM be adapted to a service organization that primarily bills for time on an as-provided basis? When resolving a case, I see that the billable time is shown as the total of all activity time. Is this information only used when applied against a contract, or can I invoice for time or export a list of billable time with descriptions for use in Quickbooks? Also, can information, such as usernames and passwords be stored in the account record but secured from users that don't have sufficient privileges? Thank you, Rick S.

selecting Access 2000 or "Access 2002" with the Convert Database command
I'm getting ready to convert a number of Access 97 mdb files to Access 2002. I'm looking over the instructions for doing this in the "Using MS Access 2002 - Special Edition" written by Roger Jennings. In that book, it says to select Tools - Database Utilities - Convert Database - To Access 2000 file format. Since this book is for Access 2002, I was surprised that it would suggest selecting the 2000 file format instead of 2002. I'm thinking this just a typo - but I thought I'd also check with this newsgroup to see if anyone knows of a reason why someone working in 2...

Changing Slide Advnacing timing
Thanks for your attention. I have a PowerPoint presentation with more than 30 slides. Initially I set the slide advancing to AUTOMATICALLY AFTER 00:05 secs for each slide. Rest of the Slide Transition settings for each slide are different. Now I wish to reduce the timing to 00:03 secs without changing other setting.

Setting column width on different computers
I have a program which checks workbooks and corrects those errors which it can correct. One check is on the column widths: Column A should be 1.43 characters wide and column G should be 8.86 characters wide. This works fine on 99% of the computers where it is used but we have one or two where if you change the width of column A to 1.43 it goes to 1.44, and for column G if you set it to 8.86 it goes to 8.89. This means that the next time the check is run, the workbook is deemed a failure. The difference appears to be the screen resolution: on the computers where it works the...
