I need proof of my MCP status with Microsoft.  I contacted them and they need information from 15 years ago that I can't remember.  They found my account but won't help me unless I answer 3 questions, that I have no idea from 15 years ago.
Anybody got any suggestions.

I posted this in AD, I know it's not an AD question, but I'm hoping an EE member has the answer.

Thanks

May be a silly question but did you do some digging via Search?

Most employers will happily register an employee's MCP number in the MS Partner Portal. Did you do that back then? An employer should have a record then of your MCP number.

Do you have any certificates for the exams passed stashed away in a closet? They should also list your number.

I never gave it to my employer.  They checked.  trust me I've looked in every location at home I can think of.  I can't find my card or certificate.  Very frustrating.

Did you do the exam 15 years ago? Isn't it possible to just get your certification up to date and go for the 2012 /W8 certification? Or is this to much of a hassle??

I called 5 times and finally got them enough information to get it.  I know they have security, but they wouldn't give it to me because the unit # of my address was wrong.  Finally went to a supervisor,  she made an exception.
Thanks for trying.
