How to get BCM



  • 1. Moving account en mass to category
    When I did an ACT! import, all of the contacts I'd flagged as "hot prospect" are grouped under the account "hot prospect" instead of their business as account. Is there a way I can flag all of those "hot prospect" accounts as the category "hot prospect" in mass instead of one by one?
  • 2. Distibution lists / mailing lists
    Hi I need to build several distribution lists and for this I have categorized my entries in both the contractmanager and the adress lists ("contacts"). My problem is that these categories ar not visibel at any given time - specifically when I build the distributionlist. Thus I can not quickly see the what people to add to the list? Also alternativly I need to send the mail to several people but when select more than one the option to send a mail does not appear. For this reason alone the MSOffice seemes rather useless, in a situation that I would find is a daily task - or is there a shortcut? Regards Per
  • 3. Business Contact Manager cannot find database
    My IT Manager recently created a new Login on my laptop and now Business Contact Manager cannot find my database. It created a new (empty file) MSSmallBusiness2.mdf and MSSmallbusiness2.ldf file. I found my original .mdf and .ldf files under the local settings\app data\bcm folder under the old user login and copied it in but it still won't recoginze it. Even tried renaming to the MSSmallbusiness2.mdf and 2.ldf but it still doesn't recognize it. HELP please!

You have to purchase Office 2003 Professional or Small Business Editon.

1.Reversing the disaster: How to getting BCM data exported back

Anyone who know if there are any way of exporting or converting BCM data into 
other CRMs? 

BCM 2003 has been a disaster solution since it does not allow us to send 
blind email copies through MS-outlook to the different groups created in BCM, 
effectively making BCM useless to send out newsletters to the groups.

Alternative 1:) ....any MS people where that know if this no. 1 missing 
feature will be available in 2003?  Or in 2007?

Alternative 2:) If we must start all over again rebuilding our data in a new 
program, which CRM should we go for that allow us to send "blind copy" 
newsletters to groups of contacts?

2.Has Anyone Ever Gotten BCM to work well?

I've bought Office Pro twice because it was bundled with BCM (2003 and 2007). 
 The first time it messed up Outlook performance terribly and had all kinds 
of its own problems, so I disabled it.

Very much wanted an Outlook integrated contact manager, I upgraded to Office 
2007 shortly after it became available, largely expecting that a new version 
of BCM would probably work better.  But it didn't.  It slowed and messed up 
my Outlook reliability again until I felt the need to again disable BCM.

I've tried it on XP Pro and now Vista, and it's a complete non-starter.  
Anyone have any advice?

3.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?


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?



5.(revised) INSTALL BCM - uninstall BCM - install BCM - still no BCM

An Addendum - 10 minutes later) 
I just went into the DATA FILE MANAGEMENT setting on OLK (outlook) and added 
BCM.  Like before - it installs it but there is NO TOOLBAR so I cannot 
restore - move - or add contact to my old BCM contact database. (from a 
previous version of outlook).  SO - my problems are reduced to ADDING THE BCM 
TOOLBAR to the top of my OUTLOOK 2003 window.
I have the OUTLOOK CONNECTOR showing but no BCM.  thanx again - in advance -
