Business Contacts default when opening OL2007 w/BCM?



  • 1. BCM 2007 - Custom Fields
    I have added some custom fields to the User Defined area of my contacts but I would like to make some calculations on these fields. The result could be on the same page or as a result of a mail merge to a Word document. Does anyone know if this is possible and, if so, how it can be done. Thanks,
  • 2. Business contact manager will not start up
    When i open Outlook a pop up error box keeps coming up. I cnat close them fast enough to even work on my outlook. This is what the box reads: Business contact manager failed to initialize the common language runtime ECall methods must be packaged into a system module.
  • 3. Chart
    Is there a way to export the charts (i.e.Opportunity funnel chart) to excel or print it?
  • 4. BCM Sync Issue
    I have a remote user who can not sync with the master database. His laptop is running XP SP3. The database is housed on Server 2003. When he unchecks the "work offline", it attempts to sync his changes. It analyzes the changes, the asks how to resolve the conflicts (he chooses shared and then do this for all conflicts), then applies changes to the database. After applying all of his changes, it comes back with the message that "Going online has been cancelled, but you can continue to work in the offline database". It does not get any updates from the master database. We have had nothing but problems with offline databases, so maybe we're got something setup wrong (but I don't think we do). Any suggestions?
  • 5. Error on installation
    Hi, I have Outlook 2007 and was trying to install BCM for Outlook 2007. When install gives an error while installing the sql server 2005 express. I tried to uninstall all mssql server lines on add/remove programs, but the problem is always the same, gives error on the installation. How can I proceed? Thanks.

Business Contacts default when opening OL2007 w/BCM?

Can the business contacts be made the default so that it does not have to be 
selected each time Outlook 07 w/BCM is opened?

As far as I know, this option is currently not in place.

Thank for your input, though. We'll try to get "open to BCM to
Business Contacts by default" into a future version.

1.Microsoft Outlook 2007 (OL2007) w/ Business Contact Manager (BCM)

Running Vista RC1, plenty of RAM (2GB), plenty of drive space (2 drives at 
320GB ea).

I am having same prob. When I installed RC1, then Office 2007TR and 
BCM2007TR, everything was working. I then installed MS Office Accouting 2007 
(MSOA) (aka Small Business Accounting 2007 beta). Looked like everything was 
going to go. Then I opted to integrate BCM and MSOA. I liked that in SBA2006. 
That install seemed to go well. MSOA opens up fine. BUT OL2007 is now 
dumping. It just starts to try to open, then dumps. Error message says OL2007 
has stopped working (duh). Then I send the error report. Then it tries to 
open again, dumps, error message, error report... over and over until I stop 
it. Thought it might be the integration of BCM and MSOA. Disabled that, but 
still dumps now.  :(

From what I read here, seems that SQL Svr 2005 SP1 will not work.  :(

I will work with the OL2007/BCM and MSOA not integrated, if I can get the 
OL/BCM to stop dumping. Can someone shed some light on this please???   :(

3.BCM with SBS, how to make business contacts default view *NOT* GAL

Hi, we are running BCM with Small Business Server. Whenever we create a new 
message and click the 'To' button it displays the Global Address List from 
Active Directory on Small Business Server. How do we change this to display 
'Business Contacts' from BCM instead? 

4.default to Business Contacts upon opening CONTACTS

I have all my contacts filed under "Business Contacts in Business Contact

I choose CONTACTS (the primary folder with MAIL, CALENDAR and TASKS toolbar). 
Right now it opens to the regular Contacts folder, which is empty.

Bversion outlook 2003 Under CONTACTS I have "Business Contacts", "Accounts in 
Business" and "Contacts". When I create NEW MAIL and hit TO: to add e-mail

contacts to be the default. How do I change the default.
