BCM issue:



  • 1. Any way to sync bcm and regular contacts???
    for pocket pc phone, and for general usability in Outlook/BCM 2007... any way to automatically keep current version of file in both folders? (helps for syncing with smartphone and more...) thanks.
  • 2. How to Get BCM?
    Hello, I have Office 2003 Professional, but I do not have the BCM disk. Can BCM be downloaded? If not, what is the way out? Thank you very much. Talal Itani
  • 3. Print Communications History
    Is there a way to print a business contact with the history items that are linked to it? I would like to be able to view all the contact information of a particular client as well as my contact history with them. Thanks for your help!
  • 4. BCM Database
    Help....The hard drive on my laptop failed. I was able to recover the data but now I can't find the BCM database. Where is it usually stored and what file name am I looking for? Jackie
    I have recently acquired a Treo 700wx. As probably everybody else knows, you cannot sync your BCM contacts to these (stupid) smart phones. Does anyone know when this will be possible? I really don't want to spend $50 for Pocket Mirror.

BCM has encountered a problem and needs to close.
Event Type: bcm 
P1: mapi
P2: type initialization exception
I have tried to remove BCM from the remove programs list and I am unable to 
do so.
I have tried to remove using the BCM disk and I am unable to.
I eve tried to disable BCM in the regedit window by changing type from a 2 
to a 3.

I want to remove BCM from the system!

Thank you for all your help

I don't know if this will solve your problems but I ran into a similar
problem where .NET got hosed and then BCM would fail on Outlook
startup. You could try removing and reinstalling .NET.

1.BCM issues getting contacts into BCM

I am having trouble getting contacts into Accounts in BCM 
and getting Contacts into Business Contacts and I can't 
even get to Opportunities. I have tried to "copy all" drag 
and drop into both Accounts and/or Business Contacts but 
then they don't seem to "link" incoming email. Also, in 
order for emails to register as a link do they have to 
originate within an Account or BC?

I am having an issue with Business Contact Manager in Outlook 2003.

I haven't been using it, but when I start up Outlook, there is a lengthy
delay (30 seconds or so) and I get this error message:

Microsoft Business Contact Manager
There was a problem connecting to the database engine. To try again, please
click Retry. If problem persists, check Help.

When I 'Cancel' this message, I receive this error message:

Business Contact Manager
Business Contact Manager cannot load all of your data. Please try again
later. Also, make sure you have permissions to access this data. If you're
unsure, check with you systems administrator.
If the problem persists, contact Support. To locate contact information,
click Business Contact Manager Help on the Help menu, click Basics, and then
click Contact Us.

After clicking 'OK', I am able to run Outlook fine, but the BCM features
will not work (I get the error messages again).

Could anyone point me in the right direction to try and rectify this issue?

Thanks very much.

4.Outlook 2007 + BCM issues, search returns nothing

Recently I've had some real issues with the Business Contact Manager
in Outlook.  When I start up Outlook, I get the following error:
Business Contact Manager for Outlook could not connect to the shared
Database. Do you want to work off line?

If I select Yes, I'm presented with another message box: Cannot start
Business Contact Manager because the SQL server service (the Business
Contact Manager database service) is not running. Start the service
then restart Outlook.  For more information, click Help.

So, I go into the services and try to manually start the SQL service,
I get the following error: Could not start the SQL Server (MSSMLBIZ)
service on local computer.  Error 2: The system cannot find the file

If I go into the SQL server configuration manager and start that DB, I
get the following error: The request failed or the service did not
respond in a timely fashion.  Consult the event log or other
applicable error logs for details.

I was going to completely uninstall, then reinstall the BCM, but I
simply cannot find it any more!  I can find the plug-ins for it, I can
find the SP1 for it...but I cannot find just the BCM installer!  Has
it been discontinued for individual use like this?

Any info you might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated.
Even if it's just a link to the BCM so I can download it and uninstall
then reinstall.


5.Reminders in BCM issue

We use BCM between several users. We synch using export / import, then a 
Back- up of the merged d/b is Restored to each machine.

From the Account screen, the user clicks on New, Task, (add some detail), 
Reminder (set for date time etc), and then on the bottom via Contacts he /she 
will manually attach this task to the Account.

After the merge, when the call back reminders come through, the user CANNOT 
drill through to the account which was attached?

The error is "Cannot perform the requested operation, the command selected 
is not valid for the recipient".

The user will only ever call back on their own accounts so I can see why 
this happens or what the answer may be? 

This may sound small but it very important to us can anyone help please?

Thank you.
