Data Migration Upload Error - Relationships :( -- URGENT

Data Migration Upload Error - Relationships :(


I have a data migration issue which has been causing me a lot of grief over 
the last few days ... struggling to get to the cause : (

Some background (... a very simplified equivalent):

I have 3 entities STUDENT (Contact entity renamed), TUTOR and COURSE;
- Each student should only be able to be linked to ONE Tutor record
- Each Tutor should only be able to be linked to ONE Student record
    ------+ To resolve this I have created two "1 to many relationships" and 
hidden the 'many' part in the relationship definition
    ------+ The Tutor field on the Contact form is read-only and updated 
through workflow when a contact is selected on the Tutor form.
    ------+ This make it appear as if there is a one to one relationship.
- Each Tutor should only be able to be linked to ONE Course record
- Each Course should only be able to be linked to ONE tutor record
    ------+ Same approach is used to define the relationship between these 
two entities.

I am trying to import 1 record into each entity (... keeping this very 
simple) using the data migration manager into CRM 4.0; my files are as 

- Student ID   [SDT-001]
- FirstName   [Tim]
- LastName   [Jones]
- Tutor ID (lookup to Tutor entity; TutorFile_TutorIDColumn)   [TUT-101]

- Tutor ID   [TUT-101]
- Student ID (lookup to the Student entity; StudentFile_StudentIDColumn)   
- Course ID (lookup to the Course entity; CourseFile_CourseIDColumn)   
- Skills   [bla bla bla]
- Qualifications   [bla bla bla]

- Course ID   [CR-500]
- Tutor ID (lookup to Tutor entity; TutorFile_TutorIDColumn)   [TUT-101]
- Course Name   [Marketing]
- Course Description   [Marketing bla bla]

If I try to import the only the Student and Tutor files (ignoring the Course 
ID column on tutor); import is successful.
If I try to import the only the Tutor and Course files (ignoring the Student 
ID column on tutor); import is successful.

>>> If I try to import all tree files with the relationships, all 3 files fail during the final upload stage with the following error:
"The requested record was not found or you do not have sufficient 
permissions to view it."

For the Tutor file, the details is:
"Contact With Id = f38e0466-57e3-dd11-81ad-001321d00597 Does Not Exist"

For the Student and Course files, the detail is:
"crm_tutor With Id = f18e0466-57e3-dd11-81ad-001321d00597 Does Not Exist"

... unfortunately, there does not seem to be much resources on what the 
failure error means ??
- I've set the relationships up as 1 to many's so this is not technically a 
'many to many' (note that it imports the pairs without issue).
- if file order plays a role, how do i get around this??

I am really stuck and need to sort this out for a client. Any assistance 
would be most useful ... !!!!!

Many thanks,

Constant Outlook crash after Exchange 5.5 to 2K3 migration
We are an Exchange 5.5 shop (gasp!) and we have finally begun our migration to Exchange 2003. I was able to build our first 2K3 server, and have it joined successfully into our 5.5 environment. The ADC is up and running and is transferring data back and forth as I expect it to. Unfortunately I still have some lingering issues, one of which is a complete showstopper. This main problem is that both of the accounts I have moved from a 5.5 server to the 2003 server have *constant* crashes in Outlook 2003. All I have to do is change to another folder, and at least 60% of the time I will get a...

Migrating all email / folders / address book from Outlook Express

It is very important that I not lose any existing email message, attachments, headers, etc. I couldn't find any useful info in the KB.. seems like there should be a lot of help with this, assuming MS really wants me to move from express to regular outlook ...

Import utility for .csv/.xls data into RMS?

Migration Wizard in Exchange 2003
Hello, I am migrating from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003 using the Inter-Organization Migration Method utilizing the Migration Wizard. I understand that the Migration Wizard migrates the Exchange Directory and Mailbox Data to Exchange 2003. How can I prevent it from migration the directory and migrate only the mailbox data (just like exmerge)? What I am noticing, the migrated user ends up with several e-mail address of various type which is coming from 5.5.

Keeping data private per User in a multi user database
Hello. I have an Accounting Access DB that I intend at some point to split into front-end (tables, forms, reports) and back-end (data), then I hope to deploy on the web. I will eventually have around 30 distributed users (only about 5 concurrent) – each inputs the same type of financial data but does business independent of the others and so must NEVER see the data entered by the other users. To make future releases and bug fixes as simple as possible, I intend to have a single instance of the front-end that each of the Users will access. However, as each User must NEVER see...

About 6 months ago he changed to a sales position which he now owns a new group of records and should only be able to access and see the records he owns. The records he used to own hav...

Security setting lost by some AD Users after migration from Exchange 2000 to 2003
Hi, I'm doing a migration from an old Server Windows 2000 AS + Exchange 2000, to a new Server Window 2003 + Exchange 2003. Both servers are Domain controllers of the same domain (migrated to 2003 structure several monthes ago). I just moved all the mailboxes from the old to the new Server and had some surprises. First of all, I lost all the "Send As" rights I had on some mailboxes (from the Security Tab of the associated user in AD). That's not bad, apart that I had to reset all the permissions by hand. The bad news is that 2 of this associated users don't retain the sec...
