If you mean tabbed browsing (where you can open multiple tabs in one browser session) then within Internet Explorer you need to go to tools (top right of the menu bar), Internet Options (last one on the list), then towards the bottom of the new window is an option called tabs, click on the button to the right of it called settings. To switch on, click the top one, then you have lots of other options to decide how tabs will work for you.
Hope that helps

Most likely thing is that office 2003 hasnt uninstalled correctly. We had one with a customer yesterday; exactly the same yesterday but 2007 to 2003.
Hope that helps

Windows 7 does come with XP mode but uses virtualisation to achieve this so when you buy new equipment you need to ensure that the processor supports virtualisation, otherwise it wont work. Generally that means spending a bit extra on the machine.
Hope that helps.

Sorry, should have said that Newsgator now synchronises with Google.

Hi, I've always preferred Newsgator. Ive also tried FeedReader which is ok but appears to store the data locally. Other than that Google is ok if you're already got a Google account, although it's not the prettiest.
I've also tried Netvibes which is nice for getting feeds of your emails and/or Facebook, BBC news etc but doesnt work that well for feeds that have a lot of new content on a daily basis.
Hope that helps

Hi, I had a look at the MailSafe software and it looks very interesting.
We recommend a product called Knowledgeworker. The difference with Knowledgeworker is that it can automatically index documents when they are placed on the network. This means that even if you have some die hard users who insist on their own network folder to store their documents they will still get hoovered up in to the Document Management system.
The system is also delivered with workflow which can be triggered by a form or a document.
It will require some investigation but we could potentially also include emails from the MailSafe software too.
You're welcome to contact me if you require any more information.

Hi, I have been selling accounting software for nearly 15 years. Mostly in the reseller channel although 4 of those years were running a software dealership within a very large firm of accountants.
Of course Sage has it's place but in that time I've seen so many accountants recommend Sage as the easy option when it's just not been appropriate.
My favourite was a company on the M40 whose external accountant recommended Sage 50 when there was so much they needed that wasn't in Sage 50. They needed;
- Cost centre analysis
- Serial/Batch tracking
- Advanced Sales Order Processing
- Large Bill of Materials
- True multi-currency
- 8 concurrent users
The accountants answer to all of these was to manage it in a spreadsheet but this creates considerably more work for the client, means data isn't shareable, and makes reporting a difficult and manual process. Most importantly it introduces an element of risk to the client if data is incorrect or omitted.
In my time I've found quite small clients who benefit from some having something more comprehensive, and £100m turnover businesses who are quite happily running on Sage 50. Every case is different.
My advice is to partner up with someone in the industry that you feel you can trust to give you objective advice for each of your clients. A 10 minute conversation with you or the client can more often or not define whether it's likely that Sage 50 (or similar, or one of the online packages) is appropriate, or whether it's worth investigating something more substantial.
I hope that helps. You're welcome to contact me if you require any assistance.

Paul makes a good point. Price is relative and your client could buy a cheap Sage 50 add on but what they save in price they will pay in time for workarounds.
You should take a look at Access Accounts, they have a product suite, suitable for your client, that have fully integrated serial tracking and job costing modules.
You're welcome to call us if you would like some additional advice on this.

We are an IT company and we use Access Accounts. It works very well for job profitability and provides plenty of analysis dimensions. We also implement and support it so if you would like to take a look then let me know.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Access Accounts will do that and if memory serves me the Job Costing module was originally written with the print industry in mind.
I work for Enhanced who have just been short listed in the "Reseller of the Year" category of the Software Satisfaction Awards that AccountingWeb run, so I can guarantee you will be well looked after when you contact us.
The best person in our office to talk to is Sarah Pollard, although I'm sure anyone can help including myself.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
