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:

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 need to make a custom template with publisher.
It will be one 8 1/2 by 11 paper divided horizontally into three parts so
that there are three fliers that can be printed. each flier needs to be

brochure layout. I can figure out text and image stuff.
But I don't know how to make a basic custom project that is divided into
three panels horizontally (so 8 inches by 3.83 inches roughly)
Also an additional customization would divide each 3.83 by 8 inch flyer into
two parts so one 8 by 11 page would ...Removing multiple users from Outlook
We did some computer switching, which involved uninstalling a copy of Office

for the other computer, but apparenly it was on this computer someplace.
How can I get Outlook to simply open for the one account without that dialog
box popping up?

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

What happens is that three copies of his forwarded email hit his blackberry

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

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--

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

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:
- AccountPhysician: (existing account or con...
