how to map existing bcm fields to user created fields in the form



  • 1. BCM Requires Administrative Privillages
    Hello everyone, Thankful for everyone who's active here, have already goten a lot of help. I've successfully set up BCM on a Win2003Server and have 4 clients with XP SP2. Updated and a shared database created on the server with all users added. On problem left, When I give the clients administrative privileges everything works fine. But when I remove the privileges users get a message saying "The Database For Business Contact Manager could not be read", "Login failed for user MYDOMAIN\MYUSER". (Roughly translated, using Swedish OS). Tried adding a BCMUser group and adding the users on multiple placed, didn't help.. Anyone got any ideas? Many thanks, Regards Ludvig Thunman
  • 2. Service Pack 3 Update for BCM & SBA
    In starting up SBA today, I installed the new Service Pack. After installation, I lost the SQL connection for both SBA and BCM in Outlook. Anyone know how to reconnect? The message I am getting from Outlook is that the database cannot be accessed. I cannot even set up a new database in Outlook or create a new company in!
  • 3. Business Contact Manager and Exchange
    I work for a large college and we have Outlook 2003 on all our workstations for handling our e-mail etc. We use exchange for all our e-mail needs. We have all POP3 etc blocked at our firewall. We have licenses for Business Contact Manager but are currently not using it. I have heard rumors that it can not be used with Exchange or that it will have some significant limits. Can anyone tell me if any of this is true? Or can I just install it and go about using it per the documentation. Is there anything I or our Exchange administrators need to do or know about before/after we install it? Does it matter which version of Exchange we are using? I think we are on version 2000 or 2003. I am not sure at the moment as that is not my department and I am still new to this organization and to Business Contact Manager. Thanks for any info on the setup and use of Business Contact Manager with Exchange that anyone can give me. Ralph Malph
  • 4. Looking to talk with someone that uses MS Business Contact Mngr?
    I'd like to hear from anyone with experience in using/installing Microsoft Outlook Business Contact Manager with an Exchange Server (SMTP email) and Citrix? We'd like to start using this at our office but are running into difficulties and need to ask some questions. Thanks, Sean
  • 5. how 2 setup a Distribution List in Outlooks Business Contact M
    Ah ha, I see now. The Distribution Lists are always setup or saved in the Contacts List, BUT once you create the Dist.List you can pull contacts into it from either list by just selecting that list in the upper right. Seems stupid they don't allow you to setup a Dist. List in Bus.Contact Mgr as well, but at least this will work.

Postby ZGVzZXJ0ZmlsbQ » Sun, 26 Jul 2009 20:16:01 GMT

i would like to know how to link existing (default) fields in business 
contact manager to new user created fields in the form editor. to help 
explain what it is that i am trying to do.........i want to create a form 
that has only the fields on it that i want to work with which will include 
newly created data fields as well as already existing fields eg name, 
address, email etc so that the form is not cluttered with many other default 
fields that I never use. I would also like to know how to put paragraphs of 
text onto the newly created form in the form editor. or if it is even 

thanks in advance

1.Adding Previously Created User Defined Fields to Forms in Outlook BCM

I am working on adding previously created user defined fields to the
"Business Contact" form in BCM.  When I get to the "Add a Field"
Dialog Box, the "Add a User Defined Field That is Already Created"
button is ghosted.  So, I am unable to access the fields I have
already created, or any of the previously existing fields.

If I just try to create a new field with the same name as the already
created filled, I get an error message.

The reason I need to enter a field more than once is that I am trying
to list multiple accounts, that each have the same data fields.

Please help!!!!

4.Default Form and Mapping User Defined Fields

I have 2 questions:

1.  I have created a custom form and published it (saved it).  I want all my 
contacts (1400+) to be viewed with this form as the default.  I want to enter 
all new contacts in using this as the default form, too.

2.  I have created 4-5 new user-defined (custom) fields.  When I imported 
from Excel, I could not map the info to these new fields.  They were not an 
option in the custom mapping window.

Thanks for any help!
