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...Date trasfer when importing emails to CRM
When I import old emails into CRM from Outlook they are tagged in CRM with
the today's date, the day I imported them. Is there any way to alter this
date once in CRM to reflect the actual date of the email?
I believe your referring to promoting emails within Outlook. If so, please

I am trying to insert a char(1) field into a table from an ASP.Net/C#
At first I was inserting rows into the table but none of the columns that I
was inserting the rows into were char(1) columns, they were mostly int and
Then I found out that there was one column in the list that was not supposed
to be an int column but instead it was supposed to be one of the char(1)
columns into the table.
So I replaced the int column in the list with the char(1) column and since
the value of the char(1) column resulted from a CheckBox ('Y...Can you insert a picture into a specific cell?
Or do they only "float" on the page.
They float over the worksheet, but you can adjust the size so that it seems to
fit a cell exactly.
If you insert a picture, you can hold the alt-key down while you move/resize the
picture. When it gets close to the edge of a cell, it'll snap-to that edge.

Running Exchange 2003 (mixed mode) and Windows 2003 server (Windows 2000

OU's that are created on the system.
Is it possible to link the policy to a specific OU or do I need to create

Yes, you can create a recipient policy that looks to just a specific OU. It
is done through LDAP queries. Here are some references to articles and
whitepapers that discuss how to work with recipient policies.

I am experiencing a recurring problem. I have had to reinstall Windows XP
and MS Money 2005. I am now unable to open my previously converted 2005 file
or restore any backup version. I consistently get the following error
"Money cannot locate filename or cannot open it, possibly
because it is a read-only file, you do not have
permission to change it, or your disk drive is write-

Does anyone know if CRM 3.0 will have a mechanism to update large price
lists and/or multiple price lists? We have CRM 1.2 and have 4 price lists,
each having about 1200 items. We have an upcoming price list change - happens
each quarter, and to do them manually takes days. I hope Microsoft has
incorporated something like this into 3.0. Any info would be helpful.

I am having a problem migrating data from Business Contacts Manager (BCM)

I have downloaded the BCM data migration pack and have followed the data

I receive mail from many pop3 accounts and mailing lists.
I use rules to organize the mail within my mailbox. One
problem I am having is that the junk mail filter does not
screen mail that is affected by the rules.
So for instance, I get an email from some alternate
account that I have. The mail comes in and gets picked up
by the rule and moved to the appropriate folder. When
this happens, the junk mail filter never checks the
message. Only mail left in the Inbox is screened.
Can someone help figure out how to make this work or does
anyone have a workaround? I'd hate to ...how many receivers i can add

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

report does it still prompt for credentials?
I've noticed this does also depend on the hostname. For instance if the

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:
