Using 'Company Name' in a BCM report!!



  • 1. Database Creation Failed Error in BCM
    I just reinstalled Office 2003 with Outlook 2003 and BCM but get a "Database Creation Failed" error which I never had the first time I installed it. I have looked all over the Net trying to find a solution but no luck. I see others have had a similar problem but no one seems to post an actual solution it. I could really use some pointers on this. Help...
  • 2. Finally moving from ACT! to Outlook...question
    Well, after many years of being a loyal ACT! fan I have decided to move on to Outlook with the Business Contact Manager. I'm tired of being a "Public Beta Tester" of their new version 2005 v7.4. There are so many bugs with their program it is time to bid farewell. But I am so used to how ACT! worked I am trying to re-adjust. So a few questions for those who use or used to use ACT! Bear in mind this is referring to Business Contact Manager side of the program. 1. The whole premise of ACT! was based around "you" as the main contact, but in Outlook is that the same case? Do I even create a contact of myself in Outlook? 2. So if I create a new task, do I create it through my own self Contact or through the contact, or account I will be doing the task with (such as a meeting or a phone call)? thx
  • 3. Entering phone number
    When I enter a phone number in the spot for any of the phone numbers in a contact a location information box pops up asking me questions about making phone calls (my location, my modem, the phone number). I try to cancel out of this location information box, a box that says, are you sure u want to canel pops up and when i say yes, the location information box keeps popping up, when i close the contacts behind that pop up, my outlook freezes, how do I turn this feature up so this box stops popping up
  • 4. Is there any way to customize reports in BCM?
    Once a month I need to print a short report of my business contacts to send to my office showing dates of contacts but really no further details. With BCM I tried printing a report on a few leads and ended up with over 107 pages as it includes e-mail text. I don't want to exclude the e-mails because I need to show that I've been in touch with these leads. Any suggestions or anything that I'm missing here? Thanks in advance!
  • 5. How do I get Business Contact Manager
    Dear Sir/Madam: I have Microsoft Office 2003; whenever I try to download Business Contact Manager I am directed to load my Office CD and use the set-up wizard to install the Business Contact Manager. The problem is that when I load the Office CD there isn't any option to install the Business Contact Manager. Any assistance or enlightenment would be appreciated. Regards, Mercury

Using 'Company Name' in a BCM report!!

You should NOT have to export a report just to have the COMPANY name listed.

I have been searching for an answer for a couple days, I have found this 
posted on various sites as far back as 2007.  Come on, it is a standard 
with MANY companies to want to see the Companies Name listed with a 
It is part of that record.

Especially when a report is wanted by a firm's principal, showing a list of 
with our contacts listed below the Company's Name.  We want to see how many 
contacts we have within a given Company.

If the Data is in the record, we should have an option to include that 
'already stored' 
data in a custom report.

I thought BCM / Outlook was going to be better than using ACT, maybe not.

I am not sure about doing it as a report, but using a custom group of columns 
should be doable in Outlook.

Can you be more specific?

Business Contact by Company - there is no "field" selection to run a report 
on my BCM and see what company they work for ??  I do not want a report by 
account (current clients) only a report broken down by contact name, company 
and email address and I can not seem to get this with any filter or modifying 
a report.  This seems like a basic report.  Anything other then an account 
says unspecified.

Creating a new email
Clicking on "To" brings up the "Select names" box
Selecting the Business Contacts from the Address Book scroll down menu

How do I search by Company?

If I know the company name and don't recall the name of the contact then I 
have to go to the BCM Business Contact search screen, key in the company 
name, find the name of the contact that I want to email, go back to the 
"Select names" box and key it in. Where is the integration??

I use this method because I am sending the same email to multiple contacts.
