Just go into the Options dialog and change your user name -- maybe add
a digit to the end. The Track Changes feature will see the next batch
of edits as being done by a different user. If you have Word 2007, the
Change User Name command is on the dropdown menu of the Track Changes

Assuming you've already set the Track Changes options to show the
colors of inserts, deletions, etc. as "By Author", the change of user
will cause a change of color.

Tracked emails from workflow rules
Hi, I'm using CRM 3.0 and I have workflow rules setup to email a new case notification to a user. The email is sent by the rule but when received by the user and opened, the 'Track in CRM' button is not on and the email does not appear to be tracked. However, when I look at the case history I can see the email sent by the workflow rule and see that it has the 'Regarding' option set as well. If I manually click on the 'Track in CRM' button, the email is then tracked but not set against the case (presumably because CRM thinks this is a new email?) and is sto...

Unlinking tracked emails in CRM 3.0
I find that once an email is linked to/tracked by CRM (Customer, Client, Activity) it can't be unlinked! only deleted.

Changing menu bar height
Hello, is there a way to change the menu bar height of an application? Regards, Nicola I dont see how that can be done without replacing the whole menu mechanism.

Change reference in formula from cell address to name
I'm fairly sure I saw this yesterday somewhere in this forum, but after almost two hours of searching, and not finding, I figure I've earned the right to ask - if only because someone should feel sorry for my pathetic search skills (or bad memory). Example: say I have a formula =$A$1+$B$2. Later, I name cell A1 "start" and B2 "finish". The original formula above still has the cell references and not the cell names (it does not change to =start+finish). How can I get the formulae created prior to naming cells to change and reflect the cell names? Secondly, give...
