Requisition Management - documentation improvements

I am suggesting that the Requisition Management documentation be more 
complete - specifically in the area of covering the migration from eReq to 
RM. I've seen pretty good examples of migration documentation and "What's 
New" information with Great Plains 8.0 and with Grant Management. I am 
suggesting that there be more consistency with this level of documentation 
across all modules and products. The Requisition Management documentation 
could especially use some improvements in this area.

For example, please include answers to the following questions in the RM Doc:

What is the migration process? What screens/reports can you print from eReq 
to aid in the migration? Do we need to back up/copy the eReq tables prior to 
the upgrade to Great Plains 8.0 and install of Business Portal 2.5? 

What are the differences between eReq and RM? Is there anything that you 
could do in eReq that you can't do in RM? What new features does RM provide? 

Can you see all of the eReq history in Business Portal? (Please include the 
information from the whitepaper that describes how to set this up so that you 
don't have to search through the documentation, the knowledgebase, 
partnersource and the newsgroups).

How can I change an excel document
How can I change an excel document back a regular folder? I opened a folder with excel by mistake, it had several emails in it. Now I can't read it. what do I do to be able to change back to a folder so I can open it? Thank you. Sara It sounds like you opened a file and actually saved it in excel (or let autosave save it). It that's what happened, do you have a backup of your original file? I don't think there's a way to go back. Depending on what that file was (plain text???), you may be able to reopen it in excel and extract some info--but I would...

Opening a Mac Document with Word
I wrote a book about 10 years ago and want to revise it for republication. I had someone put the book together for me, but he used a Macintosh program - BookMaker or something like that I think.

Integration Manager #26
I really need someone's help. We just switched from 9.0 to 10.0. Whenever I set up posting accounts with new segments, IM gives me the error message: Line 1 contains an undefined segment." I can go and manually set up the new segment and then the integration will run fine. I never had this issue with 9.0. Is there a setting that I can change in IM so this is no longer an issue? Thanks, A.B. You need to turn off the prompt that will ask you if you want to create a new account segment. It was a new 'feature' in version 9, but IM wasn't modified to accomodate the...

Modules Management
Hi, I'm building a workbook with a number of macros that have been, in the main, "recorded". Is it good practice to keep all macros in the one Module? Is there any advantage to keeping them in different modules? Using the Record Macro feature ends up slipping each new macro into new modules. Thanks Hi though this is in most cases also a personal preference I like to group my macros in several modules 8note: there's a maximum of lines for one module). So for example I use one module for general helper functions/subs, one module for user interaction, etc. Try arra...

Catalog Maintenance for Order Management
I am trying to filter out parts in inventory that are discontinued. In Catalog Maintenance, I have tried these variations: Type equal to 1. Type begins with Sales Inv. Type less than 2. When I load the page of items in Order Management, there are no parts listed. Each one of those has resulted in zero parts being displayed when I click on one of the categories I've made from the main Order Management screen. If I take the Type filter out, then all the parts for that category are displayed (both sales inventory and discontinued) on the screen. What is the proper criteria for filtering...

Importing invoices thru the integration manager
I'm trying to get "invoice only" transactions into the system, using the integration manager. It looks like the only sample integration that is available is the one for receive transactions. This integration has the appropriate line detail information needed for my invoice. However, when you type to put in the POPtype on the integration it only has 2 options - shipment and shipment/invoice (options 1 and 3) The option with a value of 2 is missing from the enumerated list. You can enter in an "invoice only" from the screen without any problems. Am I trying to use...

Converting A5 paged document into A4
I have a booklet in A5 page size. I need to convert it into an A4 sized booklet, keeping the same page numbering and the same text on each page but with double the font size - i.e. a Large print copy of the booklet.

exchange 2000
In Exchange 2000 I'm trying to filter certain domains. Reading the docs it looks as though you can enter domains you want to reject in system manager -> message delivery properties -> filtering. But it appears to work sometimes, but not all the time. And appears that it's broken randomly. For example, I entered *, and all mail from there was rejected. But I've got numerous domain names that aren't being filtered at all. It's like filtering is broken. For example I still see lots of mail coming in from places like *, even though it'...

Stop removing blank lines at the end of a document
Hello, I have a series of rather large Word documents used in testing. Once testing is complete, I clean up the documents to remove the testing bits (checkboxes, approvals and such) and then compile the document in chm form to be used as a help file. I've written a macro that cleans up the document by selectively removing some table rows, and some "This page is intentionally blank" entries. I would also like to remove a whole lot of unnecessary blank lines, but only starting at a certain point in the document. So, I need to first move to the point in the docu...

Compensation Management
I would like to use compensation management, but am I missing something? Does this compensation management tool pull in ALL employees (including those that are inactive)? This doesn't make sense to me. I can see where you can filter by Division, Dept, Position or Pay Code, but I don't see any options to include/exclude inactive employees. I don't see any reason to include inactive employees if you are trying to forecast salary/pay increases. This option should be added, otherwise this tool is useless for me (unless I manually add all the active employees). It would be quicke...

Mail merge limits for print documents
I use mail merge to print mailers for customers (Outlook contacts /Word Document). These are not emails, just going to the printer. The documents have graphics and are double-sided. Whenever I try to print more than about 250 it just stops printing, no errors, it just stops. So I break up my data source lists into smaller lists so I know I get them all printed. This is a pain and I'd rather find what is stopping them all from printing. I don't know if it's a Office limitation or hardware. I just got a new PC (64-bit/8 GB RAM/Windows 7), will that fix it?

Intro Line when emailing publisher document
Hopefully I can make my question clear. I am wanting to take a pub doc. and send via email as part of the document, not as an attachment. I have no problem doing that.

In the Pub 2002 version also listed is an Introduction Line where I am able to type text/paragraph that gets sent along with the email.

Customized document properties
I'm using Word 2007 in Windows Vista Business. A few weeks ago I created a template for a client which required a number of custromized document properties (I'll call this template "Old template"). The client then created documents based on this template.(These I'll call "Old Docs"). A week or so later, this client wanted an additional item incorporated into the same template in the shape of another customized document property to be added and accessed through VBA (I'll call this the "Updated template").
