Locate Link Browser #7

I am using Windows 2000 Pro. as the OS on this computer and I have Office
2003 installed.  Both products are fully updated.   Several days ago I
started seeing this strange behavior when I clicked on an embedded email
link.  When I clicked the link a small Windows Explorer box popped up with
"Locate Link Browser" in the title bar.  I found a Microsoft support article
that gave a fix for the problem so I followed the instructions and sure
enough it seemed to fix the problem.

Then I suddenly was unable to open any Outlook links until I got a fix from
Diane Poremsky on this forum.  After applying her suggested fix I noticed
that my file associations for .htm and .mht were screwed up.  I reset the
associations and now I have the Locate Link Browser problem all over again.
This time the Explorer window flashes on screen after I click a link and
when I come out of the linked page the box appears again requiring a manual
closure.

I went back to the original Microsoft article (821692) that calls for
unchecking a DDE box in the "Open" properties for file type URL:Mailto
Protocol but when I did I found that DDE was still unchecked.  What next?

Any help will be truly appreciated.

Sell at One Location, Deliver from Another Location
For a multi-store retailer, is there any way in RMS to sell a product at one location, then deliver it from another one? For example, say a retailer has two stores, which includes two Store Operations licenses (one at each store) along with Headquarters. A sale is made at store 1, but the product is only in stock at the store 2. Is there a way in RMS (with HQ) to sell the product at store 1 but deliver it to the customer at store 2? I realize that this can be done via a stock transfer (to move the product from store 2 to store 1 after the fact), but this requires an additional manua...

WIN 7 and IE8

Gift Certificates #7
I have a question that is probably more of a workflow related question. We have an implementation of RMS that is configured to issue gift certificates and vouchers. My question is how they get counted from a sales perspective. Lets say you have a gift certificate for a $100. A customer comes in to redeem that gift certificate for a $100 item. I would expect total sales for both transactions to be $100, however, RMS shows that the total is $200. If anyone could validate if this is correct and the general phylosphy around it, that would be great. Thanks in advance .... I'm no expert, ...
