How move contacts from ACT2000-to-Outlook2003BCM?
Am using ACT2000 (ACT Ver 220.127.116.115) on WinXP PC with soon-to-be installed
Outlook 2003 with Business Contact Manager (PC currently only has Outlook
I wondered what the BEST way is to move my ACT contacts, along with ALL
notes, emails, and anything else to Outlook 2003. (The last part is key...
*WITH* all notes, emails, etc.) I went through contacts in ACT and thinned
back to a database of only about 100 that I'd like to keep and therefore
need to transfer to Outlook 2003. If necessary, I cut copy/paste the text of
the notes and emails, once the contacts are in Outlook, but of cou...creating fax cover sheet for contact
I want to create a fax cover sheet from a contact, I open the contact and I
go to actions menu and I choose New Letter to contact.
The problem is I need a fax cover NOT a letter, I can not find where to
change the templates.
Will appreciate any help.
1. Create a custom document that will appear in the New Letters to Contact
dialog. For your custom letter template to appear in the list of Page
Designs in the Microsoft Word Letter Wizard, the letter templates you create
must be saved in the "Letters & Faxes folder Word 97) or the Templates\1033

We have a small peer to peer network of 3 PC's in my
office. One is running Windows 98 and the other 2 are
running Windows 2000 Professional. All three have Office
2000 Professional. I am using Outlook but I want others in
the office to use it also and be able to share contacts
and calendars etc. How do I make that happen?

hope anybody could help me about this problem.
What version of Outlook are you using.
Also are you referring to when you view your Sent items folder there is not
a "column" there showing the TO" Field.
If this is the situation then you may just need to add that field to your
view. The steps you take depend on the version of Outlook you are using but

How do I find out the number of items in an array, so that I can loop check
the values in the array with the incoming data.
Dim Users as Variant
Dim NumValues, Counter as Integer
Users = Array("Bob","Fred")
NumValues = Users
For Counter = 0 to NumValues
CheckUser = Users(Counter)
If CheckUser = IncomingUser then
Print "Cool" - okay this is just pseudo code.
Print "Not Cool"
NumValues = ubound(Users)

My guess is that you have set your view to show unread item only.

You can create custom fields in Contacts but there does not seem to be a way to export the data in
them. I tried exporting and walk through the mapping process -- even scrolling through the data --
and the custom fields do not show up. Of course the exported file does not contain them.
Is there some way to export all of the data in contacts without write a program to walk the contact
You cannot import or export custom fields - it is not an option with
Outlook. You can write code to do this - see http://www.outlookcode.com for

Working with Access 2003 and XP. I have a white form with a dark

in the header and formatted the text to be white. It looks great, but
I want users to be able to click in the control to execute a search
function on the organization name. When you click in the control, you
get white text on a white background. Even after searching, the cursor
stays in the field and you can't see the company name.
Is there anyway to turn the background of the activated control to any
other color than white?

In my backoffice i use a copy of my POS item database. I mainly use it to

I'm a total newbee to Exchange! I've just installed SBS 2003 and configured
the POP3 Connector in Exchange to retrieve mail messages from the POP

Everything works fine besides that all mail messages get the date from

configured so the date of a mail message in the Exchange mailbox is the same
as the actual date of the mail message in the POP mailbox?

I know that sounds like a weird question, but my ISP invites users to

to reduce the flow of the junk.
With Outlook, I cannot figure out how to forward a message without its
opening up for viewing. This is exactly what I don't want to do, because
if it's html I really don't want to validate my email address.

Thus far, only Windows Mail shows this problem.

without a code is scanned, and the error box is still up.
