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 2 major problems that I just cannot seem to be able to resolve.
When using the mail merge template to do a quote it seems that there
are only a very limited range of "fields" that are made available to
the user. These DO NOT include the actual accounts "Address" only
shipping and billing address - 99% of our clients don't use these
address's so all our data is in "Address_line1" etc
Neither do the fields for "product description" appear in the list

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

I'd like to be able to input values to a custom report like the Year. Is
there any way to package a custom report and provide input to it? Every year

Alternatively, (this is a payroll report), is there any global variable or
some other back door that I can use to get the current year in a custom
report? Given the report writer may not be the ticket what would the
recommendation be to create custom reports that require input? VB.NET?
Using VBA you can allow for input in the custom reports. B...CRM 3.0 Login Problems

question: if MS CRM 3 is configured correctly is it normal that when trying

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

...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:

the Ext Price based on SOP30300.CSLSINDX and SLSINDX and hope it matches the
SOP10102 summed distribution amounts. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
With the SLSINDX you would use the Extended Price and the CSLSINDX you would
use Extended Cost. You would probably ...automating email marketing with workflow in CRM 4.0
