Sat,
I cannot open or even right click the disfunctional contact in BCM. The 
contact happens to be me (?!) I do have a copy of the contact I had copied to 
the regular contacts folder that works ok. The BCM copy used to work fine. I 
did integrate BCM with Accounting 2008 and this is one of the few contacts 
that would be affected. I suspect this is the problem. 

I could just delete the BCM contact and copy in the regular contact, but I 
am concerned that there may be a systematic problem that affects other 
contacts or will recur. What do you recommend?

1.BCM contact open error "string was not recognized as a valid boole

Outlook 2007 BCM fails to open one specific contact with the error "string 
was not recognized as a valid boolean." This contact has worked properly 
before. Other contacts open fine, although I have not tried every contact. 
Everything else appears normal. I ran the database defrag/error check and 
received no complaints, but nothing was repaired. How do I repair this (and 
possibly other) contacts?

4.windows mobile phone not recognize business contact from bcm

I synchronize my Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2007 BCM between my computer and 
mobile phone (Treo 700 WX).  I have no Outlook contacts, only contacts in BCM 
(that way I have a single SQL database with all information further 
integrated with Microsoft Accounting Professional).  When the phone rings, it 
will not identify the caller.  Is there a setting in windows mobile that will 
allow the phone to recognize contacts from business contact manager that are 
synchronized on the phone?

5.BCM Does not recognize duplicate contacts

I've read the help files and even checked online, but I get thesame
answer: Outlook is supposed to check for a duplicate name or email
address when you save a contact, but I never get any notification
regarding a duplicate, when I have definitely got a duplicate contact
in BCM!

I have tried to uncheck the "Check for duplicates" in "Contact
options" and restarted Outlook, then recheck the box and restart
Outlook. But I cannot get Outlook to check for duplicate contacts.
Anyone else having this problem? I have many contacts in Outlook
contacts and also now in BCM after importing from ACT. I want to move
all business contacts to BCM and get rid of them from regulat Contacts
in Outlook, but I keep getting duplicates. Any help is appreciated!
