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...double clicking and draging a column in a chart to chg data

How does one do this in excel 2007?
That feature has been removed in 2007, there is no way to do it.
If this helps, click the Yes button.

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

with error messages. A few are listed below:

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 have 2 business units:
1. New Business Sales
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.
