Default Account and Contact View
By default the system wants to display Accounts or Contacts as "My Active
Accounts" or "My Active Contacts"
How do you change the default to display *all* contacts/accounts? I went
into Customization / Account / Forms and Views but can't seem to find where
you'd change the default view for either Accounts or Contacts.
Also, is it possible to change the view on a per Security Group basis, so
that, say, an admin/manager's view would default to all contacts/accounts,
but an end user would only see *their* contacts/accounts by default?
Thanks - Daniel
D...Contacts not synchronizing
An appeal to Peter.R, ...winston and anyone else who knows anything at all
about the mechanics of contacts:
Could you be bothered to have a look at this thread
and come up with ideas, because I'm about out of them. There's probably
something glaringly obvious that I'm missing.
We'll all have to get used to meeting over there, I suppose, however
unpleasant that prospect might be for many of us...
Suggest the following(assuming the current version of WLM is installed)...folder access by mail-enabled user
We have a mail-enabled user, one with a credential but an off-site
mailbox at their home site.
How can this user gain access to the Exchange mailbox Inbox folder of
a local user?
They can be given permissions, but OWA (2007) does not allow drill
down to the user...
The user will have to log into that mailbox separately.

You are looking at two independent contact lists. Any changes made

You would have to manually recreate the groups while logged in.

I created a chart but I need to show my total on the pie not just my legend.
In this pie shows the model number of the equipment, but it doesn't show me
how many of them I purchased and that's what I need to show in addition to
the model number.
It isn't clear what the pie chart is charting. You can set the labels to
display a number of options. Did you "play" with this property?

Facing the following issue. Company sells products. Every country has
its own products, so country specific products exist. Loading them all
into MS CRM is an option. However, since ' real' sales objects such as
quotes, orders and or invoices are not used, there is no real need to
put them in. On a new entity, however, a link to a ' product' is
needed, so we used an itermediate entity to lookup a product and thus
create (fake) a many to many relationship.
There are to many clicks needed to fulfill this task as sometimes many

I recently updated to a new server, communication to users about new server

some users don't read their email and are still accessing and updating their

from accessing the old server without removing (MSProjectServerUser and
MSProjectUser) logins? Or, possibly add a warning message when access to old
server is initiated?

Using terminal services or a Terminal Server like Citrix or Microsoft you
should have no problem provided that you follow basic rules. Split your
database, and have a folder with the front-end for each user. DO NOT share a
front-end or an unsplit database or you will eventually experience

Using forms on Access 2003. If I have a textbox control bound to a date
field, and if I put in 12/6, it automatically changes it to 12/6/2007
(current year). However, if I put 2/29, instead of saying it's an invalid
date, it assumes I mean m/yy and changes it to 2/1/2029.
Any way to dumb it down so that it always requires a m/d/yy format to be
entered and returns an error if the date entered is invalid? I don't even
want Access to assume the year because we're dealing with 2005-2008 dates and
I think it opens up for more errors if Access assumes current year.

Hope somebody can help
We have recently upgraded server & exchange from 2000 to
2003 versions, are using outlook xp clients.
We have one generic mailbox that several users have
rights to so the contents can be checked, discarded,
acted apon etc. We used to be able to forward an email
from this maibox to another user, however since the
upgrade we get a 'You do not have permission to send to
this recipient' when we try this.
No rights were altered during the upgrade, so I have no
idea why this happens. Any Ideas ?
I originally had money 2004 and had no problems getting my credit scores
updates automatically. Ever since I upgraded to 2005, I get the following
error: This error happens instantaneously.

problems. Please try again later"
I can contact experian directly without any problems.
It's a bug. This seems to effect those upgrading from Money 2004 to Money
2005. The only workaround is to manually visit the experian website and log
in. If you are trying to sign up for the free service with Experia...Delegat Control
