Microsoft - please fix these!


1/2.  PLEASE DO THIS!!!!!  You need to display a flag when the "Process thru 
EDC" box is not checked.  Inform the cashier that the transaction is not 
being processed; do they want to continue?  Look on the newsgroups to see how 
many retailers have lost credit card revenue because this box was not checked 
and not discovered until much later. Since all the card numbers are masked 
(as they should be) there is not a chance that we can recoup these losses.  
Yes, this did happen to me; and yes, I lost a lot of money.
1.  Please make all input fields consistent: in dropdown boxes, decide 
whether you want users to be able to use a keystroke (arrows or letters) to 
get down the list or have to mouse down the list - CHOOSE ONE OR THE OTHER!
2.  Please make navigation more consistent:  sometimes Alt+A takes the 
cursor to a button, sometimes it opens an input field.  A lot of people still 
prefer keyboarding to mousing.
3.  In the HQ Purchase Order worksheets, the number of items defaults to 1; 
in HQ Inventory Transfer worksheets the number of items is retained from the 
previous item.
4.  How about a real forum instead of a newsgroup for the RMS/HQ Community?
5.  I should be able to create a report on the fly (any one I want!)
6.  How about Global Gift cards in HQ?  That can't be that hard to do.
7.  How about getting with the program and realizing that, like it or not, 
Quickbooks is the most used of any accounting packages for most small/medium 
businesses.  Get HQ integrated with Quickbooks!
8.  Figure out once and for all why Inventory Transfers cause so many 
9.  Make the synchronization between HQ and local stores more robust.  I 
can't depend on my HQ database numbers; my on-hand HQ inventory often doesn't 
agree with the local databases - how can that happen?  why?
10.  Improve HQ/RMS documentation - it stinks!!!! Who knew that in order to 
get to the next page of a journal receipt in the POS you have to press  
11.  In looking up previous transactions in the journal, have the date range 
retain the last date searched instead of reverting to a default date.
12.  Display an "Item not found" dialog box when an ILC is not in the 
database instead of just going to the nearest number.

Microsoft Money 2004 does not run
Hello, Everybody: Probably this problem have been solved before but I would like you to help me anyway. I had installed MS Money 2004 but because I was updating another software (that eventually I had to reinstall it again with a prior version) I tried open it as usual but suddenly appeared that small window saying a problem occurred giving the chance whether to report it or not to Microsoft. I tried lots of times running Money 2004 but nothing. So I decided to uninstall it completely and resinstall it again. However, the problem still remains. I really do not know what caused this but actual...

Microsoft Excel Formulas
I have exported financial (budget figures) data into excel for 12 months, changed cells to numbers and added columns to put in actuals. I have manually entered formulas in the total column from each cell (eg =sum(E2+E4+E6..) etc but when I go back and modify data in the individual cells it does not change the total figure.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0: Reports are very slow
The more I work with CRM, the more the reports become slower when I try to run them I looked at the event log and saw nothing Is there any help on how I could research this problem? Thank you Stella If the problems are getting worse the more records are being added it is a save bet to asume the reports are filtering/joining columns without indexes. To speed this up you will need to tune the query and/or database. Tuning the database means creating additional indexes (for example with the SQL index tuning wizard).

Lost Word file. Please HELP
I opened a Word .doc file that had been attached to an e-mail. I worked several hours on the file, prudently saving it from time to time. I did not save it under a different name, I just clicked on File>Save. At the end of a long day of back-breaking work, I closed Word. The next day I try to open the file but Word doesn't seem to remember it. It is not in the list of recently used files. I search My Documents to no avail. I go to the original e-mail, but the attachment is still the original version, without any of my additions. What is going on? It seems like I lost a day's...

Variable data on a fixed page background
I have got a mailer which I have produced and used in the past. The outside sheet (a Word doc) has got graphics and text, leaving a space on the sheet for the receiver's address. I have an application that produces an RTF file of the addresses, each separated by page breaks. In the past, if I had 1000 addresses in the RTF file, I would print 1000 copies of the fixed background, then format the RTF using margin settings to position the address lines properly, then run the already-printed sheets through the printer again to get the addresses printed.

Microsoft CRM 1.2 on Windows 2003 locks up/unstable
Hi, We recently added additional server to the CRM environment. We have been runnning CRM 1.2 for about 2+ years on Windows 2000 environment with no issues. This is IIS 5. We have done some cusomizations and CRM SDK developments too. On windows 2003, we are running into issues. This runs on IIS 6. Once in a while the webserver does not respond.
