Can I add BCM to my copy of Outlook 2007?



  • 1. Birthdate- Spouse
    I created a field for spouses birthdate and would like it to work like contact birthday works--ie it updates the outlook calendar with the birthdate and I can search it as a date.
  • 2. BCM is 20 years behind times
    What is the point of BCM? Many features of Outlook doesn't work on BCM, like Distribution Lists. Can you tell me how to move all my BCM contacts into Outlook Contacts and then get rid of the BCM?
  • 3. Distribution List won't stick in BCM
    I created a Distribution List in BCM. The List doesn't show up among my BCM contacts (supposed to have a group icon and be bold) and if I try to send an email and enter the name of the List in Send To, nothing shows up. Is this a shortcoming of BCM or my software has a problem?

You have to have Outlook 2007 w/BCM in order to get it. BCM does not come

1.Add-in to create basic canned answers ?

I sell a lot on ebay, and I get many exact questions from buyers. I use
Outlook 2003 and I have a little FAQ based on Outlooks signatures... this
solution is not that good as I wanted it to be, since I need a faster access
to it and a little more flexibilty.

Does anybody know of a basic add-in I can buy that could help me out ?? I
don't need fancy things, just flexible canned answering.


2.BCM-V2 (Outlook 2003 BCM SP3) TO BCM-V3 (Outlook 2007) Migration

I've got a two backups from my BCM-V2 SP3 installation :
A) Completed Export to BCM (From Outlook 2003)
B) Database Backup From MSSQL 2003 (Express Ed, or Whatever)

I Did a clean install (on Another WorkStation) of Office 2007, then install 
Outlook BCM-V3 (Witch install MSSQL Express Ed 2005, and creates an empty 

I've follow two differents steps to try to make the migration :
A) Import BCM File (From my previous exported BCM (Outlook 2003)).
ERROR : Something like "Outlook can't make the last action", and nothing 
append, another thing is that, I must kill outlook process to get rid of that 
pop-up (Cancel and BACK buttons doesn't work)
B) Restore Database into MSSQL Express 2005:
It seams that this last step is the right one, but, when the process is in 
the middle of the migration, it stops, and shows a pop-up with something like 
"You're not allowed to restore database, plese contact the owner (my self) of 
the database, before restore" (This is not the exactly msg, but the meaning 
is the same)

My last chance, is to backup database, with password, and try to restore 
again, and see what append. No other clue for me, any help ??

4.Is it possible to add BCM to installed Office 2007 Plus w/ Outlook

The Plus suite has Outlook but not BCM. If I purchase a copy of Outlook w/ 
BCM, can I simply "upgrade" or add-in BCM to my current installed Suite? 

IOW, will MSFT activation handle leaving my Office Plus suite activated and 
then allow me to activate BCM when it is detected as an addition to my system?

Thanks for a timely reply.

5.Copying Distribution lists into BCM 2007

I currently have around 1000+ Contacts with Distribution Lists already 
created in my Contacts folder.  I can Import all the CONTACTS into Business 
Contact Manager, but no distribution lists move over.  How can I move the 
Distribution lists over into Business Contact Manager Contacts?  

By the way, we are using Oulook 2007 with BCM on all three computers within 
the small network.. I can share the Database fine and everyone can see the 
Business Contact Manager Contacts from the Master Station, but I cannot get 
the distribution lists to move over..  Any help here would be greatly 
appreciated..  I'm already about 12 hours over quoted on this job and the 
customer is getting just a frustrated as I am.
