Location of the database in BCM update?



  • 1. Transfering Outlook Contacts into Accounts and Business Contac
    If you are using Business Contact Manager 2003 Update SP2 and Business Contact Manager 2007 Beta, you can import Outlook contacts into Business Contacts through BCM import/export wizard. On Outlook window, goto File->Import Export->Business Contact Manager. This will bring up BCM import/export wizard. Select import option and click next. In next screen, you will see Outlook Contact as one of the option. -Mukesh "Luther" wrote: > What problem are you running into when you try to drag the contacts to > a BCM folder? > > jerald wrote: > > Help Please...

  • 2. How do I send emails automatically to contacts in access database
    I have about 400 addresses kept in a Microsoft Access database. I use word and merge to email to contact them but can only send them one at a time because I keep getting the message that a programme is trying to access the addresses which might be a virus and am I aware of this. I have to click yes every time. Can I change the settings so that this message doesn't appear and all the emails are sent automatically.
  • 3. Unable to activate BCM even though it is installed
    Greetings, When I click on the enable BCM link I get a message that states BCM is already enabled, restart Outlook to use BCM. After a restart, BCM does not show up in Outlook. If you delete the user's Outlook profile and then recreate, a wizard pops up when you first open Outlook under the new profile and you can successfully configure BCM. I don't want to have to do this for everyone, some have very complex profiles(no, the save my settings wizard does not work). I also tried to run the enableBCM.exe file manually with no joy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I edited a Contact Form in Business Contact Manager by adding 2 User Defined fields to it. Then, when I hit the Publish button, I the following error: "Unable to determine where to save this form due to an error" I then hit OK and I am prompted with a window to use to give the form a name and where to save it. I do this and then get another error: "Unable to successfully publish the form due to a MAPI error. OpenProperty: cannot open properties which are computed." I am stuck here. I am able to design and publish a form for a regular contact but not for a business contact. I am sure others have had this error. Any adivce? Thanks. -Brian

Location of the database in BCM update?

I'm ready to deploy the BCM update - I installed in on my computer in 
preparation to share it with three others in my office. I noticed on the 
wizard I have no way to choose where the database is located. We have a 
"shared" hard drive, and that is where I'd like to put it - but can't find 
out how. Is it possible to move the database to another drive? What is the 
default location for the database?

The database is in
C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application 
Data\Microsoft\Business Contact Manager

My advice is don't move it to a shared drive because SQL Server is not a 
simple file-based like other dbms.

Thanks - I began to gather after looking into BCM more, this was no ordinary 
.pst file I could move around!

No, it is a SQL database.

5.changing location of BCM database files


On our SBS server, I would like to change the location of the BCM database 
files (MDF, LDF, BAK) to something other than the default "Application Data" 
folder in "Documents and Settings". We are currently using the BCM Database 
Admin Tool to create/share the database, but it is always stored in the 
default location.

There has been some discussion about this in the past (specifically, about 
modifying the BCM location in SQL), but I wan't able to find any concrete 
solutions. Any help is appreciated.
