    I would like to sync my Outlook 07 BCM with my Quickbooks Customer Manager v. 2.5. - is this possible? There are features in both programs that I like but it only makes sense to use one or the other if they can not sync easily. Your help with this is greatly appreciated.

    Does anyone know a way to archive business projects? Right now, as I see it, once you delete a business project, and any tasks associated with it, it's gone. We would REALLY like a way to archive the business projects once they are complete without them sitting in the "Open Business Projects" list with simply a "Completed" status. Has anyone come across this, or had to address this? Thanks in advance!

Overwriting of BCM Database when creating a new one??

Postby QW5keQ » Fri, 09 May 2008 04:58:00 GMT

I spent about a week creating a database of business contacts with BCM. Then 
I wanted to create a new database for "job applicants", ie a new category of 
business contacts. Didn't know what else to do, so I did "create database" 
with a new name. I hadn't backed up the original database.

Did I overwrite the original database with the empty new one? I cannot find 
the data in the original one, it still shows it to me to connect to and to 
select, but it is always empty.

Can I kiss the data goodbye or is there some place where I can find back the 
old data.

Thanks, Andyy

1.VPN causes BCM to create new database

When I connect to a BCM db through a VPN, the system seems to think it is a 
new db, and runs the initial setup, prompting to create an offline copy, etc. 
 When in the office, I can connect using the server name (\\server), but I 
have to use the ip address when connected thru the vpn.  (The VPN is Hamachi, 
and the server's ip address is different than when connected locally in the 
office.)  This causes two databases to exist on the laptop, and defeats the 
ability to work offline from a laptop.

Is the VPN the issue?  Why does BCM think it is a new db?  Would using a 
hardware vpn solve the problem?

Thanks in advance,

2.Trouble creating a new database in BCM 2010

 I bought 2010 Office, and want to use Business Contact Manager. I have been 
using 2003 Outlook, but not BCM. With 2010, I can load BCM, and Outlook 2010 
Database  Tool runs through the Database Server Instance where it shows 
SQLEXPRESS,point of asking for a database name.  After that point, I get an 
error msg, saying it "Cannot create a new database.  The operation has been 
rolled back. Please be sure the database service is running".  

Can you help to get me past that point?

4.Getting Old bcm database to new PC with BCM Installed

I recently upgraded to a new PC.  I have installed MS Office 2003 and all 
I have been unable to successfully get my old Business Contact Manager 
database into the new software by trying to get the new PC/BCM to recognize a 
backup copy of the old database and integrate it into the new PC program.

Can anyone explain to me how this should be done?  I'd rather not convert to 
a .csv file if I can avoid it.  Isn't there a way to get the new Business 
Contact Manager to recognize the old database and just bring it in?
