re-installing BCM after getting new motherboard



  • 1. number of import fields
    I am trying to import standard Outlook Contact fields using Excel. I get the following message: An ODBC error has occured in Microsoft Excel Translator while opening file to build a field map. Too many fields defined. What is the number? I originally exported this data from one contact file, had to do a bit massaging of data and now want to reimport. I have about 2200 contacts. -- Trudy
  • 2. Business contacts list does not appear
    I am having two similar problems when I am working with Accounts. The first issue is when I am viewing an Account and try to add/link it to a Primary Contact. When I click on the icon to open the box to Select Contacts, none of my business contacts appear in the list. Even when I type in the first few letter of the name nothing shows. It is completely empty. A similar problem occurs when I try to add a business contact to an Account in the Business Contact section in the middle of the Account view screen. When I click Add/Select Contact the business contacts menu is again blank. I have updated to the most recent SPs but the problem still occurs. Any thoughts on how to fix this? Thanks, -- Dave
  • 3. How do I change security settings in Business Contact
    I want to allow other people to view my business contacts in Oulook, but I do not want them to have permission to be able to change the information. Is there a way to set the security to perform this operation?
  • 4. Emailing Invoices
    Is it possible to use a DL I have already been using in OL 2003 and connect it to MS Small Business Accounting 2006 through BCM for emailing invoices? Thanks!
  • 5. Email Delay Delivery
    Hi There! One of my users here is trying to send an email and wanted to delay it on a later date. He stated that it used to worked before where if he sets up a delayed delivery for this email, click on send & it goes directly to his SENT folder and it says on the email that it will be delivered on the date he specified. But now, when he does it sends to his Outbox folder and would not allow him to shutdown Outlook not unless he delivers his mail in his Outbox. Details: Outlook 2003/WinXP - His email is setup to read on the exchange server side, his email storage cap has not exceeded. Not sure on why this one is no longer working but is there any possible way to get this back where it shoots directly to his SENT folder rather his Outbox? Please advice. Thanks.

re-installing BCM after getting new motherboard

Postby R3JlZ2dQ » Sat, 16 Sep 2006 13:30:03 GMT

I'm having trouble installing Business Contact Manager after replacing my 
motherboard (the old one failed).

I've reinstalled Windows XP Professional - no problem. I decided to do a 
clean install. Before swapping out the hard drive, I backed up everything on 
my C:drive to another drive. Then I installed XP and told it to reformat the 
C:drive. Like I said, it was a clean install.

Then I installed Office 2003 Professional Edition - worked fine.

Then I installed all of the updates, to make sure I had SP2 and all of the 
Office apps. up to date.

Next, I installed Business Contact Manager, followed by the updates, etc. 
Then I tried installing Small Business Accounting 2006, but it wouldn't let 
me unless I removed 'Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 with Business Contact 
Manager Update'.

Now I'm confused... I've been through several installs and removals trying 
to get this to work. When I run Outlook 2003, Business Contact Manager does 
not appear in the menus. I can add the Business Contact Manager database and 
then go to the contacts to view accounts, etc., but the main form doesn't 
appear. And, Business Contact Manager still doesn't appear in the menus.

Any ideas on how to sort this out??

Hmmm, maybe it is the wrong type of motherboard. Did it say it was BCM
compatible? :-)

1.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?



2.Reinstall Office 2003 on new drive with original motherboard

My Dell laptop hard drive crashed. Dell did not provide OEM Office CDs for 
recovery.  I installed new drive and restored from backup but Office message 
indicates no software is installed. Contacted Dell and they cannot provide 
original CDs. Microsoft said they cannot provide CDs. So I purchased an OEM 
replacement CD. Will installing this CD get my MS Office 2003 back up and 

3.2007 re-install after adding new motherboard

I want to install a new motherboard, I would like to format my HD to do this, 
however, I know that I could do an XP  repair.  BUt if that does not work 
then I have to format the HD.
But, I have 3 installs (the most you can have) on my WIndows office 2007 and 
I am afraid that it will show it as the 4th install since the MB is 
different. Does the IP address change (I hope Microsoft goes by that) when I 
change the MB? 
Will I be able to install 2007 after formatting my HD ? 

4.Need help after installing new motherboard

Hi. I installed a new motherboard and after several 
attempts to do a repair installation of XP Pro ended up 
reinstalling it because the OS would not uninstall the 
old mobo drivers. All of my old programs remained on my 
hard drive yet had to be reinstalled. I have Office XP 
Pro in the upgrade edition which I'm now trying to 
reinstall and as I do so I'm getting a screen saying I 
don't have a qualifying version, a screen pops up asking 
where it can be found which doesn't list anything next to 
the drive letters that might allow me to click on my 
prior installation, and the installation process aborts. 
I went into the program files and tried clicking on the 
individual executables but a screen popped up saying I 
needed to use setup to install each for this user. How 
can I work around this and reinstall my Office programs? 
I can't find the old CD from the 2000 which I upgraded 
from. Thanks.

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 -
