Problems migrating BCM data into CRM SB edition
I am having a problem migrating data from Business Contacts Manager (BCM)
into CRM 3.0 Small Business edition.
I have downloaded the BCM data migration pack and have followed the data
migration documentation to the letter.
I even cleaned up the BCM database prior to copying the files, checking them
for errors using the Manage Database option in the Business Tools menu.
It gets so far through the migration process and then bombs out.
Here is the final few entries from the log file:
28/10/2006 12:18:53------>Transitioning to next screen. From:
ConfigurationSummary screen. To: ...Watch Accounts
I've set up a watch account to use as a model for an investing strategy I'd
like to try. In doing so, I want to be able to track theoretical purchases
and sales of individual stocks. I want to track sales and realized gains on
my Account Summary window, so I've customized my view to do that. After
entering a purchase, the stock shows up just fine on my account summary, but
after I sell all shares, it no longer shows up so I'm not able to track
realized gains. How can I get Money to continue to display the stocks I no
longer "own" in my watch account?

As my SQL server is currently on its last breath I am in the process of
moving our CRM 1.2 databases to a new dedicated serever. I have detatched the
databases from the old server, copied the files to the server and attached
I have then gone into CRM deployment manager and changed to the SQL server
to the new server.
That all appears to work fine, no error messages. But when users try to
access the CRM system they get an error and the CRM server event log fills
with error messages. A few are listed below:
dmLog: Failed to execute the SQL batch in the file sqlbatch.sql.
MSCRM P...Merging Duplicate Contacts
Is there an option in V3.0 to merge selected accounts/contacts/leads that
have been selected as duplicates?
yes, from the Contact List or from an Advanced Find for contacts, you can
select multiple contacts and click the Merge icon at the top of the list
(the merge icon looks like two small pieces of paper becoming one larger
piece of paper). When you click it, a merge dialog will appear and help you
with the process.
Sorry for the weak description of the icon by the way :)

I am interested in the experiences of others with implementing Microsoft CRM
3.0. I am a one man development team who has been tasked with implementing
CRM 3.0 with 30 users initially.
Our organization has been running on Lotus Notes for quite a while. We moved
to echange for e-mail over a year ago but still use Lotus for custom
databases. The first step will be pulling the data from Lotus Notes to CRM.
I have looked into the Microsoft CRM 3.0 Certification. There is a company
that offers a 10 day CRM 3.0 boot camp. Is this a good idea, and at what
point should I take it? We would lik...Send to certain person using specific email account
I send an email to a certain receipient but don't want to use the
default email account.
Is it possible that when I send to them (plain text) , that it will
choose the other account I want to use to send it? Please advise how I
set this up.
I do not believe that this can be achieved automatically through standard
use of Outlook as you need to manually specify the name of the account to
send from if different than the default.
However, it would be possible using the Outlook object model. An Addin would
need to be developed that monitored each mail item prior to sending. If the

Has anyone else come across this issue in MSCRM3.0? - when you attempt to
resolve an email address to an existing contact in CRM (that does not
currently have an email address stored in their details) the contact resolves
OK but does not update the email address in the contacts details.
Is this by design, or have I found a bug?

...Converting Opportunity to Account
How do I convert an Opportunity to a Account? Thanks
This is not possible, opportunities are opportunities for existing
accounts/contacts. This is why when you convert a Lead to an Opportunity you
must select the potential customer also.
> How do I convert an Opportunity to a Account? Thanks
how would I select a potential customer? does this mean I have to create an
account for them as well? it wouldnt make sense since they may not ending up
being an account. thoughts?

I am running Exchnage 2003. My CEO has a conatct in our organisation that

copy in his mailbox.
What happens is that three copies of his forwarded email hit his blackberry
account! Only one hits his internal mailbox.
What I ahve determined is that the front end Exchange server seems to be
creating the additional copies. Is this how its meant to be (don think so cos
its such a nuisance and my CEO keeps complaining about it).

...Associating Multiple Existing Contacts to an Account, Until CRM 2.x
I have racked my pea-sized brain for endless days for a way to associate
multiple existing contacts (or accounts) to an account.
My client has accounts that have many contacts (or accounts) involved at
different stages of acquiring a new account.
The logical method would be to add a custom attribute with lookup
functionality into the existing CRM contact or account objects but this is
not possible with CRM 1.x.
The resulting UI would allow an end user to associate different contacts (or
accounts) to an account. Example:

When running a report from Microsoft CRM client it prompts for username and

question: if MS CRM 3 is configured correctly is it normal that when trying
to generate a report in MS CRM prompt for username and password?
No, ideally it should pass the users AD credentials to the reporting IIS
server (single sign on). If you were to close the browser and run a different
report does it still prompt for credentials?
I've noticed this does also depend on the hostname. For instance if the
reporting server uses a differe...CRM 3.0 Login Problems

...Money 2000 Account Balance Changed Inexplicably
Opening Money 2000, which I've used without problem since late 1999, I
noticed that my checking account balance was overstated by almost $2000! I
went to the register to see if there was a false transaction entered and it
appears that this balance change goes back years with no obvious single entry
being the culprit. When I run the "balance this account" function, it shows
that the closing balance from my last statement, which was correct and
rectified, is now also wrong and reflects the higher balance. What do I do
now? The only thing that I can think of is to restore...I want to add a mail account without setting a SMTP server. Is it possible?

One of my users is experiencing an issue when they save an email that is
tracked within CRM the email displays in CRM with "Size=2>" directly in front
of certain lines of the email. So for example "Size=2>" will appear in front
of someone's comments in the email or in front of their name. Does anyone
know why "Size=2>" is displaying in front of the lines of an email? Thanks.
