How do I set up Accounts and Contacts in BCM from Outlook contact.



  • 1. Error 'Database msdb cannot be opened' when backing up BCM
    I received this error when attempting to backup. The message continues 'It has been marked SUSPECT by recovery.' Then a lot of techno babble about SQL that I don't understand. I also says that the backup/restore was still successful, but it wasn't. I tried to restore the previous backup, but to no avail. I'm lost on how to proceed, can anyone help? By the way, the link to 'Terms of Use' is not working.
  • 2. How to restore BCM Database after upgrade from Vista to Win7?
    After upgrading OS from Vista Ultimate to Win 7, I have this problems with "Business Contact Manager for Outlook": 1. Each time I open MS Outlook, I am asked for permission to "allow the following program (MS Office Outlook) to make changes to this computer". This didnt happen before the change to Win 7. 2. At the end of the opening process of MS Outlook, I get the following message: "Business Contact Manager for Outlook could not complete your last action or actions. Please try again." This didnt happen before. 3. When searching for Outlook messages (Inbox, for example) using the "search" box above the messages, the tool doent find messages posted after the OS upgrade.

To move Outlook Contacts to BCM folders you can drag and drop them.

1.Import Outlook contacts to BCM contacts/account

Hi. My office recently installed the BCM 2003 to our Outlook 2003. We have 
several hundred contacts already in Outlook, but for some reason I'm having 
difficulty  copying them to the BCM contacts.

I'd also like to create accountsin the BCM using the contacts already in the 

I tried exporting the Outlook contacts to a Personal Folder File (.pst) on 
my desktop. However, the BCM fails to import it, because it says it does not 
list Outlook Contacts at all as one of the importable files. I can't even 
browse and select it from my desktop. It simply does not show up.

Please save me from having to retype the hundreds of Outlook contacts into 
my Business Contact manager contacts/accounts.

5.Creating BCM.Account & BCM.Contact items in Technical Refresh

I'm experiencing problems with an add-in I'm developing after installing the 
Technical Refresh.

Previously when I created a BCM.Account or a BCM.Contact object, all the BCM 
specific item properties existed, now none of them are so things are going 
pear shaped in my application.

I can create these properties after I create the object but why are they no 
longer created by default when the object is created. Seem a little bizare 
that this used to work but now it dosn't, I can't believe that this is an 
'feature enhancement'.
