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

to be an int column but instead it was supposed to be one of the char(1)

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.

it is not possible to add leading zeros to a numeric value. Mathematically,
this is redundent and unnecessary.

There are a couple ways so do this. One is to test it, which makes for
doing the VLOOKUP function twice.

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

...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:
