GoldMine Tip: How many bad email addresses do you have in your database?

Run this SQL query in GoldMine to see how many you have:

 

select
 cs.accountno,
 isnull(cs.contsupref,'')+isnull(cs.address1,'') 'Email',
 [dbo].[udf_ValidateEmail] (isnull(cs.contsupref,'')+isnull(cs.address1,'')) 'Valid',
 c1.company,
 cs.address2 'Name'
from contsupp cs
left join contact1 c1 on cs.accountno = c1.accountno
where
 cs.contact = 'E-mail address' and [dbo].[udf_ValidateEmail] (isnull(cs.contsupref,'')+isnull(cs.address1,'')) = 0

Studio

databases

GoldMine Tip for generating Verification Codes

Verification codes are security measures to ensure GoldMine users do not make changes to the existing sync profile without the knowledge of GoldSync Administrator.

If a user gets a verification code error, the GoldSync administrator must generate a verification code on the GoldSync Server and send it to the Remote user.

The most common occurrence of this error message is when a remote copy of GoldMine has been moved to another machine (laptop). The verification code error will be generated on the first sync attempt by the remote user.

The steps to generate the verification code:

- Log in as the MASTER user on the Server computer
- Select Tools | Synchronize | GoldSync Administration Center
- The GoldSync Administration Center dialog box appears
- Expand Site Groups
- Right Click on the Site: USER (ensure that this is done for the user who is getting this message )
- Select the option Generate Verification Code
- Make note of the verification code

- Ask the Remote user to enter the code in to the remote computer when prompted
