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.

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

access the CRM system they get an error and the CRM server event log fills

I am using the following formula:
Where BH24 = 15:21, BG24 = 15:00 (times based on a 24 hour clock)
The answer returned is 0.3, but it should be 0.4. If you round out to 2
places the answer is 0.35. Unless I am missing something 0.35 should round
to 0.4. If I use Roundup, it rounds everything up. What am I missing?
this is due to Excel's representation of numbers (see:
In your case the formula
=(BH24-BG24)*24 does not return 0.35 but

I am developing a database on a XP SP2 machine. On a form I have created
some buttons with event procedures that run 2 queries and open a form. I
sent the db to someone running Access 2007 on a Vista machine and nothing
happens when she clicks the buttons and there are no messages.
I know nothing about Vista so thanks in advance for any help.
Might be a reference problem, have them open the open a code window and
click tools references. See what says missing and tell them what should be
there, Add it and it should work. Duff

Has anyone else come across this issue in MSCRM3.0? - when you attempt to
resolve an email address to an existing contact in CRM (that does not
currently have an email address stored in their details) the contact resolves
OK but does not update the email address in the contacts details.
Is this by design, or have I found a bug?

Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 share the same code? how is that
possible when Windows 7 has both 32 bit and 64 bit versions and windows
server 2008 r2 is only 64 bit
As Microsoft is going to use only 64bit versions for servers they don't built
the 32bit version. Sharing the same code doesn't mean that the server OS
use exaclty the same files, there are a lot more and different ones. But
the basic code is the same.

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
was inserting the rows into were char(1) columns, they were mostly int and
Then I found out that there was one column in the list that was not supposed
to be an int column but instead it was supposed to be one of the char(1)
columns into the table.
