Thanks, Jim
  • 2. email FROM and TO field in history; anyone got it working?
    When I add the FROM or TO field with the column chooser, it is not filled with the actual sender or recipient. I have tried and tried, but maybe its a bug. So to rule that out, my question is: is there anybody out there who *does* recieve valid values after adding the columnfield. Mike BCM 2007 on XP SP2

    Does BCM have a native ability to track changes by user to Accounts, Busniess Contacts, Business Projects, or Opportunities records? If not, does an add-in exist that I can look at from a 3rd party? Kindly, Benjamin Rutledge
  • 4. Categories - 2007
    Is there a way of setting categories within BCM so that they automatically feed across to all users of a shared database, without me having to set them up on each individual computer? Thanks.
  • 5. contacts manager mapi cannot find bcmms.dll
    Whenever I try to open BCM I get the following error message: contacts manager mapi cannot find bcmms.dll I have Enterprise 2007 installed but could it be that it didn't come with BCM? It's not showing in my installed programs, but in Outlook the folder is showing. Have tried many troubleshooting methods to no avail, still same error message.

appears asks me if I want save without a name,  even though I have typed one.
Any solutions?

2.Some Contacts fields missing in .pst file

Dear all,

I archived all my emails, calendar, contacts in a Personal Folders File 
(97-2002) a while ago.  Then, I "installed" this .pst file on my new Outlook 
2003, using the correct settings, (97-2002) that is.  I can see my emails and 
calendar ok, but I cannot see the field "Notes" in any of my contacts. This 
is where you would scribble more details about your contacts. When I look at 
"all contact fields", I unfortunately can't see my "notes" under a particular 
field. It seems that the information has vanished (Ggg!).

The .pst file is around 1.2G, so I exclude the file size as a potential 

Can someone tell me:
1- What is the field name of those contact notes in Outlook 2000 and 2003 (I 
know it sounds trivial, but Outlook 2003 doesn't mention it in its GUI, and I 
don't have access to an old Outlook to check myself)?
2- Is there a difference in the way this field is interpreted from, say, 
Outlook 2000 to Outlook 2003?
3- By the way, has someone seen categories going to "unfiled" for no 
particular reason, while moving a .pst file?
4- Finally, how can I retrieve this (important) information?

Many thanks!

3.Exporting contacts to comma delimited file - missing fields

Sorry if this has been a previous topic.
When exporting contacts to a comma delimited file (outlook 98 - 2003),
the resulting file has missing fields at the end of the record,
if those fields do not contain information.  There is not even
commas present with no data, to signify blank fields.

The header record is exported correctly, containing all the fields.
The remaining records contain all fields only if the last exported
contains data.  If not, the last exported field seems to be the last
field in the record which contains data.

This may not cause a problem for excel or access, but does seem to
problems for 3rd party software which expects the fields to be present,

even if they are blank.

Has anyone ran into this problem, or know of a fix/workaround?

Thanks in advance,


4.Fields Missing - Field Chooser over use!

Hello all, 

I using Outlook 2000 with Windows XP Professional. I have this problem 
where if I create a new folder, either under my inbox or indeed under another 
mailbox I have rights to view, I missing fields. 
By default the only field that does appear is RECEIVED. FROM and SUBJECT are 
always missing. I only have it occur on one pc and I can understand how to 
change this. 
It may not seem a big deal but I have to create folders on a daily basis and 
it getting a wee bit tedious. 

Thanks for any help in advance


5.importing outlook fields via code, missing mobile field

I think I have the late binding code now (see below). However, I've searched 
everywhere for the field for mobile phone, and I've tried everything with no 
luck. Does anyone know the field name in Outlook for importing via code?

I also have a few others missing, I'll include the list below, the commented 
fields are not working:


Sub ImportContactsFromOutlook()

   ' This code is based in Microsoft Access.

   ' Set up DAO objects (uses existing "tblContacts" table)
   Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
   Set rst = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("_ContactsOutlook")

   ' Set up Outlook objects.
   Dim ol As Object 'New Outlook.Application
   Dim olns As Object   'Outlook.Namespace
   Dim cf As Object 'Outlook.MAPIFolder
   Dim c As Object  'Outlook.ContactItem
   Dim objItems As Object   'Outlook.Items
   Dim Prop As Object   'Outlook.UserProperty
   Dim iNumContacts As Long, i As Long

Set ol = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

   Set olns = ol.GetNamespace("MAPI")
   Set cf = olns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts) 'olFolderContacts 
declared as 10 in declarations section
   Set objItems = cf.Items
   iNumContacts = objItems.Count
   If iNumContacts <> 0 Then
      For i = 1 To iNumContacts
         If TypeName(objItems(i)) = "ContactItem" Then
            Set c = objItems(i)
            rst![First Name] = IIf(c.FirstName = "", Null, c.FirstName)
            rst![Last Name] = IIf(c.LastName = "", Null, c.LastName)
            rst!Address = IIf(c.BusinessAddressStreet = "", Null, 
            rst!City = IIf(c.BusinessAddressCity = "", Null, 
            rst![State/Province] = IIf(c.BusinessAddressState = "", Null, 
            rst![ZIP/Postal Code] = IIf(c.BusinessAddressPostalCode = "", 
Null, c.BusinessAddressPostalCode)
            rst![Web Page] = IIf(c.webpage = "", Null, c.webpage)
            'rst!Notes = c.Notes    'can't figure out this one...
            rst![E-mail Address] = IIf(c.EMail1Address = "", Null, 
            rst![Business Phone] = IIf(c.BusinessTelephoneNumber = "", Null, 
            rst![Fax Number] = IIf(c.BusinessFaxNumber = "", Null, 
            'rst![Mobile Phone] = c.MobilPhone    'tried: mobilephonenumber, 
businessmobilephonenumber, etc.
            'rst![Country/Region] = c.BusinessCountry
            rst![Job Title] = IIf(c.JobTitle = "", Null, c.JobTitle)
            'rst![Home Phone] = c.HomePhone
            rst!Company = IIf(c.CompanyName = "", Null, c.CompanyName)
         End If
      Next i
      MsgBox "Finished."
      MsgBox "No contacts to export."
   End If

End Sub
