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:

I chose the form "Newsletter - email".
I have created a 3 page newsletter. Now, I have NO IDEA how to send it out
as an email. I do not want to send it as an attachment. I cannot figure out
which "save as" format or what I need to do so that i can email this
newsletter. Is there a website that goes through how to do this?
Am I correct when I say that it has to be html in order for me to send it as
email? That is not one of the options.
Any help you give me would be greatly appreciated.
...Changing SQL Server for CRM 1.2
As my SQL server is currently on its last breath I am in the process of
moving our CRM 1.2 databases to a new dedicated serever. I have detatched the
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:

MSCRM P...number rounding in MS Excel
This may have been answered many times.
In MS EXCEL is there a way that it calculates all numbers to 2 decimal
digit accuracy instead of the 15 digit default?
Thanks in advance for the answer.
You can set your decimal places in your cells as 2 and then check Precision
As Displayed on the Tools / Options / Calculation page. Be careful though,
it means what it says!!

How do I convert an Opportunity to a Account? Thanks
This is not possible, opportunities are opportunities for existing
accounts/contacts. This is why when you convert a Lead to an Opportunity you
must select the potential customer also.

how would I select a potential customer? does this mean I have to create an
account for them as well? it wouldnt make sense since they may not ending up
being an account. thoughts?

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

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:

I ran Office Diagnostics from the help menu and no problems were found and
the issue persists. Any thoughts on how to resolve the issue?

No macro required.

Sounds like QIF export/import is your only choice. I suspect you will find
this doesn't do what you want.

I have 2 business units:

2. Account Management (management of current customers)
I want to use the MS CRM security settings so that users in New
Business Sales cannot see any account records for our current
customers. This includes if the New Business Sales users select the
‘All Accounts’ view.
Is this possible with MS CRM?
Yes. When you assign access rights to the role, only give them "Business Unit"
access, they will only be able to see data within their BU.
