CRM 3.0 Implementation
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...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:

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:

of May, depending from where the date emanted.
Message posted from http://www.ExcelForum.com
Couldn't you format the cell as mmmm dd, yyyy so that the user sees what date
they entered in a non-ambiguous manner right away?
Or maybe provide 3 inputs: Month, day, and year.
You could combine them elsewhere.

How do you get rid of the seconds in the time area. I have changed the
formatting in the time. I use the excel file as a data source. I include the
time in the mail merge. It always shows up with the seconds in the time. Very
it may be formatted as text, so won't respond to changing the time format.
if it is text, the TIMEVALUE formula will convert it to a decimal-based time
value which can then be formatted by using Excel's normal Number formatting--

No, ideally it should pass the users AD credentials to the reporting IIS

report does it still prompt for credentials?

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:

of that window. But! this thread is not in my process! And I don't want a
