How to auto attach word docs to BCM contacts



  • 1. Brief clarification, BCM...
    Thank you Sue, Does this mean that, under 'My Contacts' in Outlook, I will now have TWO for "Contacts" and one for "Business Contacts in BCM?" If so, isn't that sort of a violation of the database rule...the same info in TWO places? It looks like if I update Sam Jones' phone number in Contacts, it DOES NOT get updated in "Business Contacts in BCM". Am I doing something wrong? So that's really two separate databases. I just wondered, if this is the case, how others manage this delima. One of reason's I got BCM was to *consolidate* my papers, ACT!, Outlook, Palm... all into one ...and the idea is that the *one* would be Outlook along with BCM's capability to also record things like business notes, accounts, opportunities, etc. Thanks, George
  • 2. ActiveSync can't sync multiple Address Books using Business Contact Manager
    I just installed Outlook 2003 with Business Contact Manager. I just found out that within Outlook there are two seperate Address Books for contact information one called Contacts and now one called Business Contacts. ActiveSync only syncs with the address book called Contacts. I need to sync with both Address Books. There dosen't seem to be away to tell AS to sync with different Address Books. My sync device is a Samsung i600 smartphone runing Windows Mobil 2003. Will this be fixed in the next release of ActiveSync? Could a rep from Microsoft please reply?

  • 4. Newbie BCM questions...
    I just upgraded to Outlook 2003 BCM, and wondered if anyone could help with this elementary question: 1) Do I need to "import" my Outlook contacts? Down the left side under "My Contacts", it has several things like "Contacts", "Accounts in BCM", and "Business Contacts in BCM"....but when I click on the last two, they are empty. What are selections to make after File > Import > ????

Hey Bob,

I have had the same issue and here's what I know to be true and possible in
regard to your post.  You can initiate the creation of a word document from
within the Record forms that are used in BCM (Business Contact and Account
record forms) by clicking on the Actions button on the tool bar of this form.
This will start the word letter writing wizard and then when you close and
save this word document it asks you where you want to save it among the
windows folder structure.  This is the only option that I know to be possible
to save as.  Anyway, after the document is saved, if you then wish to link
that document to the BCM record from which you initially created it you have
to click on the NEW button alongside the Business History Items section of
the BCM record form in order to manually link the document that resides in
your windows file structure. 

I assume this is how you have doing this and unfortunately I believe that
this manual linking of the previously saved word document is the only way to
do it.

2.Attached Word docs to IO clients received as .dat files

My client's Outlook 2000 is set for Mail Format RTF and

3.Default Reading View - attached word docs

When a word 2003 doc is attached to an Outlook 2003 
email, it opens up by default in 'reading view' (4 pane 
display)...can this be changed?

Since the normal.doc is not set this way, I believe this 
to be an Outlook setting, but I can't find any 
information on it.



4.Attached Word docs open in Reading Layout View when I double-click

Hi, I'm running Outlook 2003, Word 2003 and in Word I've gone into tools, 
options, general tab and unchecked the "Allow Starting in Reading Layout". 
All fine and good, HOWEVER... If I double-click on a Word document attached 
to an Outlook E-mail, it starts in Reading Layout view. VERY Annoying! Any 
ideas? Haven't been able to find anything in Outlook to uncheck yet.  Thanks 
and Happy Halloween!  Deb
