Outlook with BCM functioanity with treo 650



  • 1. Outlood phone number default choices.
    How can I change the default options on phone numbers that appear for all entries?
  • 2. Moving Business Contact Manager to Pro Plus, dropping Accounting
    Seriously? Are small businesses not a target customer? First you drop Money and Accounting because "online banking is good enough" (no, it's not), and now you're saying Business Contact Manager will only be available through volume licensing. With less than 10 employees, volume licensing is not an option, and yet many small businesses who have been paying full price for Office Pro off the retail shelf will have to go find a different solution for managing business contacts AND go through the pain of migrating off the MS solutions in place. And no, CRM won't do, either, because it is also a solution for something larger than a few employees and requires too much additional expertise to implement. Nor is building some giant SQL solution to manage accounting a solution. Accounting and Business Contact Manager were a perfect fit, but now Microsoft will be forcing these plentiful small customers to competitive solutions, and sending the message that only the big enterprises and larger small businesses are worth the effort. I know this isn't the intent, but will certainly be the result.
  • 3. Upgrading from Office 2003 to 2007 Ent, calendar permissions lost?
    Supporting a user Win XP Pro SP3 fully patched, Exchange 2003 Standard. Upgraded to Office 2007 Enterprise, when user checked calendar permissions, everyone had access to write to his calendar. Permissions set under OL 2003 allowed for only a small group of users to have permission to write to his calendar. We are looking to rollout to 100+ users, want to know if permissions are "opened up" by defualt during install of Office 2007. Thanks! -- Mark E. Peterson
  • 4. Installing BCM 2010 on Server and Custom Form Layouts
    We have installed BCM2010 locally on a laptop to check out the product and have made some form modifications for leads, opportunities, etc. We would like to install BCM database on a server for VPN access for a couple of our sales reps. Can we do a database backup and then restore on the server to maintain all form customizations?
  • 5. Exported BCM file and it saved as *.ssb. Now can't import.
    Had to reinstall office because of disk failure and when trying to import BCM says ,ssb not a vailid file type. How do I convert it to *.bcm or something that BCM can read??

Outlook with BCM functioanity with treo 650

Postby RG9uIEw » Sat, 29 Dec 2007 07:15:01 GMT

I am contemplating getting Outlook with BCM to replace Act! 2008.  The basic 
problem I have had is that over the past 4 years of using act! it syncs well 
with palm using palm os for act!, but, over time the database begins to 
become corrupted.   Then it takes hours to ferret through the support process 
to finally be charged more than $200 to have the database repaired.  This 
occurs every eight to ten months.

I have nearly 800 contacts.

Can outlook fully integrate for use on the treo 650.  ie. do the 
opportunities, appointments, notes, activities all function?

Hi Don L,

Yes, you can move them to BCM in Palm treo.
BCM Mobile supports Business Contacts, Opportunities, Appointments, Tasks, 
Phone Log, Business Note.
800 Contacts should note take more than 5min.

1.Outlook Treo 650 Palm HotSync OLERR lookup table

Where do I get advice on what these Outlook to Palm synchronize errors
Are they indicating errors in Outlook (which works) or the PDA (which
won't sync)?

HotSync operation started for donna on 12/21/05 19:54:07
Outlook Calendar
- Recovery Sync
Outlook Calendar synchronization failed

These were cut directly out of the PalmSource Outlook conduit HotSync
6.0.1 file:

The really frustrating thing about these messages is the hotsync used
to work on this new Verizon Treo650 Palm PDA cellphone and then stopped
all of a sudden. No matter how many times I reboot the Windows XP PC,
the PalmSource HotSync Manager 6.0.1 has been failing for more than a
week with these cryptic error codes above.

Is there a lookup table for these error codes?
Are they indicating Outlook errors (Outlook seems to work just fine) or
errors in the Palm PDA (which seems to work fine also)? It's just the
synchronization between the two that is failing. Contacts synchronize
just fine via the Treo 650 USB cable but the Outlook Calendar fails
every time (it used to work and I don't remember changing anything to
break it).

When I googled, I found someone suggested deleting the entire Outlook
profiles directory:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application
which didn't seem to solve the problem at all (I think I got even more
error codes when I pressed the HotSync button on the Treo 650 USB cable
but I don't remember because I didn't save the original set before
deleting the profiles directory).

The Outlook profiles directory reappeared with Outlook 2003 (which
seems to work fine throughout),  and it re-created the following files:
donna_Outlook_profile.FAV 26 KB
donna_Outlook_profile.NK2 0KB
donna_Outlook_profile.srs 3KB

Do you know what these Outlook conduit Palm syncronize errors mean?

2.Treo 650 Outlook 2003 sync, datebook functions

A couple questions for you experts out there.
1. Anyone else having trouble syncing with Outlook 2003?  Does PalmOne
have a plan to fix this?
2. Has anyone figured out a way to set the defaults on the datbook
function to allow "alarm on" to be set as a default for a datebook
event? (Treo 600 did this.)
3. Has anyone figured out what happened to the "Journal" function that
was present on the Treo600?
4. Or the "template" function that was a function on the Treo 600
5. And has anyone figured out how to set the "default event length" to
0? (Treo 600 did this.)

It seems to me that PalmOne rushed this phone out to the market before
it was ready to go and they may have cut out a number of useful
features also. (At least to me they were useful.)  The memory problem
is inexcusable also and further evidence that this phone while
thoughtful and innovative has some very sloppy and unfinished elements
as well.  Anyone have answers to the above questions or the general
statement please let say so...

3.Treo 650 Outlook Calendar Sync problems

I have a Treo 650, and I run a Outlook Exchange, on windows XP. This
configuration is the same for both home and work
I installed my hotsync application
I have problems syncronizing my calendar both ar home and at work.

1. I set the preference to syncronize my calendar
2. After I syncronize, I realize that on the registry, no activity has
been done on the calendar
3. When I look at the preferences, I realize that my instructions on
the Calendar have been overuled, and "someone" changed into "do nothng"
4. I have this problem both at home and at work

I called Palm, and they only offered to sell me some assistance. Then I
extorted that in the Knowledge library # 8985 there is my answer. In
reality this reference is inexhistend



4.Outlook Folders with Treo 650?

Had Treo 600. Was using Chapura Pocket Mirror professional to duplicate
the 15 contact folders in Outlook XP onto the Treo. Now upgrading to
Treo 650. The 600 came with a free version of Pocket Mirror that did
not support folders. The 650 does not come with Pocket Mirror at all. I
am wondering if the 650 Palm Desktop and Outlook sync software now
supports folders out of the box without the need for Pocket Mirror?
Basically I'd like to know if, when I sync Outlook to the 650 (with no
Pocket Mirror installed), will the contacts all go to the root folder,
or did Palm finally start supporting Outlook folders. I know that
Chapura has Pocket Mirror for the 650 now but if I can get folderf
support without it, so much the better.

Thanks in advance for any help!

5.Treo 650 and Outlook phone number formatting


Outlook 2003 stores the extension (or exchange, doens't know the exact
term, in german it's the Durchwahl) of a phone number with a leading
'x', e.g. as "+49 (69) 12345 x 678" but the Treo doesn't recognize this
sign and stops dialing after it - the number shrinks to "+496912345" and
is therefor unusable. This seems to be a bug or am I doing something wrong?
