Excel and Word prompt for GoldMine credentials.

Version 1

    [Background]

    - If GoldMine plus for Word or Excel is installed, the GoldMine program would need to be open when using Word or Excel to use GoldMine Plus functionality of inserting GoldMine Fields or viewing GoldMine fields within a Word or Excel file.

    [Resolution]

    1 - The cause for the prompt is that GoldMine is not open when opening Microsoft Excel or Word documents and GoldMine Plus for Microsoft Word and Excel is installed.

    2 - This is a prompt to notify the user that GoldMine functions and fields will not be avialable when opening Excel or Word and GoldMine is not opened.

    3 - To eliminate this there are two options:

    A) Key the username and password and check the box that reads "Please login to GoldMine with the following user data automatically in the future" and check the box that says "Don't show this dialog again".

    - The result with this option is that GoldMine will be opened if not already opened and all functionality for GoldMine Pluse Word/Excel is available.

    B) Do not key the credentials for GoldMine, leave the box "Please login to GoldMine with the following user data automatically in the future"  unchecked but still check the box for "Don't show this dialog again".

    - The result here will be that GoldMine is not opened and GoldMine functionality for Microsoft Word/Excel will not be available until opening GoldMine and logging in.
