Transfer or copy Business Contact Manager Categories



  • 1. Chronology subset hystory synchronization
    Hi, BCM synchronize only a subset of my business contact hystory, why? is it possible to have the complete hystory on my pocket pc? is there some other product to do it? if not possible: can I customize the subset history? Thanks a lot, it is very urgent
  • 2. Right-click an address -> add to BCM? [OL2007]
    I've searched everywhere. Can't find a satisfactory answer. I have OL 2007 with BCM. When I right-click an email address, I get the option to "Add to Outlook Contacts." I want the option to "Add To Business Contacts" as well (I use both contact databases, so I want to add this, not replace the other one). It seems this could be done with Smart Tags, but if so I don't know how. Can anyone help? Thanks, ~N
  • 3. Unable to cast object of type 'System.Int32' to type 'System.Byte[
    We are currently running the trial of Office 2k7 with Business Contact Manager. After moving some of our contacts over from Office 2k3 we ran into a problem with a few of them. They import into BCM without issue but once they are there you can't do anything with them. Even trying to open them results in the following error (displayed in a dialog box). "Unable to cast object of type 'System.Int32' to type 'System.Byte[]'.". The majority of our contacts work fine but only a select few are causing this error. All help is appreciated!
  • 4. Import Contants "Location Field" to BCM
    When I imported or dragged a contact from my Contacts to the Business Contact Manager window, the contents in "Location" field does not populate the Location field in the Business Contacts Manager. I see that there are two "Location" fields, but none of works. Please advise.

Transfer or copy Business Contact Manager Categories

I had to take Business Contact Manager off one machine and put it on another 
machine.  I was able to export the contacts and import them on the new 
machine but I haven't been able to find out how to transfer the Categories to 
the new machine.  I really don't want to retype them.

Anyone know how to do this?

Hi Randy,
Import and Export support moving categories. When you import a BCM record, 
it will still have it's category.
But it will not keep it's category color. If you want to keep color, you 
need to edit categories in second computer. They should be same as in first 
computer. (Let's say you have Red color assigned to Work category in first 
computer, You must add Work category with Red color to second computer in 
order to see your contacts in Red color.)
Hope this helps

Yes, they do. The categories attached to the records I transfered came along 
with the export / import operation. 

Allow me to clarify a bit.  I am trying to determine how to transfer the 
list (table) of categories that appear when I am in a Account or Business 
contact record and click on the Catagory button.  The built-in categories 
transfer (because they are built-in).  The ones I have added DO NOT transfer. 
 I have added a Bunch of new catagories and I really don't want to retype 
them in because if I type them slightly differently (I may have a space or a 
dash between words, etc) when I sort by catagory I will get separate 
groupings.   I'm trying to avoid that.

How do I transfer the Catagory table that includes the entries I made?
