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:

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...Changing SQL Server for CRM 1.2
As my SQL server is currently on its last breath I am in the process of

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:

I have a client who has access to the internet through my network. The
client would like to create a pop session so that he can download his e-mails
from Yahoo to Outlook. My problem is that when I configure his Outlook client
to retrieve mail I get an error that it cannot connect. I believe this is a
port identification issue. Can anyone tell me how to check what port Exchange
is using to send and retrieve mail?

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

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)

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...Vlookup returns "0"

There are a couple ways so do this. One is to test it, which makes for

Please contact your ISP, maybe they can provide one. As far as I know, AOL

Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 share the same code? how is that

As Microsoft is going to use only 64bit versions for servers they don't built
the 32bit version. Sharing the same code doesn't mean that the server OS
use exaclty the same files, there are a lot more and different ones. But
the basic code is the same.

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--

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:
