Issue Migrating Attachments in CRM 4.0


We are migrating data to MSCRM 4.0.  We're using the Data Migration Manager 
and everything seems to be mapping/migrating fine
correctly except for attachments.  We have followed the suggested steps in 
preparting notes/attachments to be
migrated, including:
1) Creating the Notes.csv file with and entity column, a unique id column, 
and a filename column (filename of the
2) We have placed all the files that are to be attached, in a sub-folder of 
the folder that contains the
Notes.csv file, and named the sub-folder "Attachments".

The files are not that large and there are no errors when we migrate them.  
During the mapping process, we
link the Regarding field to the appropriate entity ids (since we will be 
mapping these attachments to contacts,
opportunities, and accounts).

The migration completes, and we can see the attachment names and file types 
associated with the entities, but
there is no file size and the document can not be opened.  So we looked in 
the database and noticed that 
nothing was pulled into the DocumentBody field.

Has anyone else had an issue with migrating attachments? Or would anyone 
have any ideas on what we can try?

Thanks in advance!

Unable to forward attachments
I'm having problems sending (forward) an attachment with Outlook. I can send an attachment if I send a fresh email but when I forward an email that contains an attachment the recipient doesn't get the attachment. My sent items folder shows the attachment was sent.

I've searched Google and the Outlook newsgroup and found a lot of people with the same or similar problems but so far I've been unable to find any type of fix.

HELP! HTML Emails with mailto: forms in send data as an attachment!!
Hi, I am a developer and I have a windows service which uses a database to send emails. The emails are in HTML format. Some of them have <FORM action="mailto:[an email address]" enctype="text/plain"> in, so that data input into the emails form can be emailed to a specific person. This works fine with Outlook Express in that when the address in the action="" of the form gets an email, they see the forms data in plain text, (as they should). HOWEVER! If someone with Outlook (2002) fills out the form and sends it the recieved email has the form data as an a...

Outlook issues after Exchange migration
We recently migrated Exchange 5.5 mailboxes to Exchange 2003 on a new domain. This was performed with the exmerge utility in a 2 step process. Now there are 2 issues with Oulook: 1) When a user types a recipient name into the address field, the name autocompletes as normal. But when the mail is sent, a message returns saying it is undeliverable. However, if the user goes into the Contacts folder and from there selects the same user to send a message to, it is successful. 2) If a user shares a calendar, specifying the user with whom to share and the level of permissions, all users in ...

Taskbar issue
Hello All I'm hoping someone can help me with this long-standing problem with both XP and Vista on separate laptops and every computer I've had (except I think Win98). I'm thinking there may be no solution, but what it's worth a try. With both of my machines, I have the taskbar (as well as other toolbars) set out to maximum size - typically half the screen - and to auto hide. (This makes a great program and file launcher) The issue is that the operating system decides it wants open the taskbar on its own from time to time on its own. Various things prompt this, ma...

Self attached images in Outlook Message
Every HTML email I send from Outlook 2003 attaches 4 image00*.(2 gifs, 1 png and 1 jpg) - the content of those images seems like Word icons? The images have neither been attached by me nor show in the sent message content - you can only see them when receiving the message. I have checked several options: when sending Rich Text or Plain Text messages the files are not attached. When not using Word as email editor they are not attached as well (even for HTML email). I do not use any stationary and my signature does not contain any images. It seems that this started after applying recent...

Formula/calculation returning a 0 instead of actual sum
I am using 2007 and I have a workbook that returns a "0" instead of the actual sum. I have tried using @sum formula and just adding the cells together. Any ideas?? Sounds like your values are not "real" numbers. They may be Text values. Another possibility is you may be in manual calculation mode. -- Gary''s Student - gsnu200908 "Jenny Beech" wrote: > I am using 2007 and I have a workbook that returns a "0" instead of the > actual sum.

multiple instance of CRM on domain
We have a situation where two divisions want seperate instances of CRM. It is important to note, each division has it's own domain. While I know we can manage that, my question concerns the exchange router. Since the email for both divisions come through the same exchange server (and through a third domain), my assumption is there would only be one exchange router. Has anyone done this before and what are the potential issues I may need to address to make this work? This will probably answer your question (or some parts of it anyway):

Attachments in Outlook Express not there !
The problem I am having seems to be slightly different from lost attachments. The emails are shown in the mail Inbox screen, and where there is an attachment, there is a paper clip in the paperclip column . So far so good. However, when I open the e-mail, sometimes there is an actual attachment (paperclip shown in the top bar) , and some times not. If there is an attachment, then this can be opened and all is normal. However, when there is no paperclip, I don't know what has happened to the attachment. It is worth noting that it does not seem to be a size issue because big attachments (6 M...
