Export Business Contact Manager Contacts into Outlook

Q: Export Business Contact Manager Contacts into Outlook

Hi

I am hoping someone on here may be able to assist me. Over the weekend I "merged" my Outlook 2003 contact list into my Business Contact Manager. This deleted all the contacts from my Outlook list. I didn't realise at the time that BCM did not sync with devices such as the new Blackberry Bold 9700 I received today!! The problem I now have is that I don't seem to be able to copy the BCM contacts back into my Outlook list? I have tried expoting the BCM contact list into a .csv file, and then tried importing that file into Outlook but it appears the CSV file is all sorted into one column?

Is there an easy way to copy them back into Outlook so I can sync it with my phone?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Cheers
Craig

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a user with BCM and I need to get her contacts into Dynamics CRM. I have purchased an addon for ACT! which let me export data into a CSV file to import to CRM for another user, but haven't had a chance to mess with BCM yet and I don't think it will import cleanly. Does anyone know of a solution for this?

Hi, does anyone know if it's possible to merge duplicate contacts in Business Contact Manager (2010)? Two different people entered the same contact with email linking, so both have different email histories but there's no way to change the link in the email history to another contact.

Hello,

have just started using Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2007. I have created some business contacts and linked emails with these contacts. The Communication History folder shows all the emails linked to these contacts. However, when I open the contact's business card and click the History button on the Show area of the ribbon to view the associated emails nothing happens.

The button depresses, but the window never changes and the General button immediately goes back to being depressed again instead of History.

Any ideas why this could be? This is one of the major functions that I would like to use!!

Many thanks for any advice in advace.

Why do none of my files retain attachments? I've been counting on using BCM for my contact follow ups but for some reason what I thought were very complete files have no attachments (PDF's, word, excel, etc) making many of the files useless.

Because I have two laptops (one w/XP and one w/Vista) and I'm continually exporting to keep both laptops synced does exprting/importing have anything to do with the problem?

Does anybody know a way to synchronize bcm data (contacts & calendars) over several pc's, without using an exchange server? I'm running mostly xp machines with outlook 2003 w/ bcm.

A:Outlook Business Contact Manager Sharing

Depends on the version of BCM and the number of users.

BCM 1.0 can't be shared, later versions can be shared with a max of 5 users - and you must be running XP Pro (not Home).

See - http://download.microsoft.com/download/c/e/1/ce1ddfb8-ef91-4324-a9c7-28365087441f/W06_Sharing.pdf

You may find ACT! is easier to share data

Greetings.
Being rather unfamiliar with BCM as a whole, I apologize for being rather verbose in this post. We are speaking about Outlook 2003 with the Business Contact Manager installed. Every time we enter Outlook we receive numerous: Managed MAPI Service Catastrophic Failure error messages. Could not initialize CLR. The parameter is incorrect. We have been trying to restore the BCM file. Recently, with the help of this article, we have recovered several important finds. In %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Business Contact Manager\ one WILL find the .ldf and .mdf files that are spoken about in this article. In any event, we are trying to restore the BCM file to allow the file to be opened. Now, interestingly enough, we created a ‘Test’ profile on the machine in question in Outlook 2003. The test profile opens with no error messages save an error about Microsoft Office Outlook SMS add-in. However, the second we try to add anything related to the Business Contact Manager file in, for example, Data File Management under the ‘File’ menu, we receive the Managed MAPI Service Catastrophic Failure message repeatedly. What should we do? Should we reinstall Office Outlook 2003? What risk does this pose to losing the Outlook Data files? Also, a separate Office Outlook 2003 version does exist on another computer. I have read here that installing Office 2007 creates a backup of the BCM files on the machine. I do believe that there is a trial version of Office 2007 installed, but I have yet... Read more

A few days ago I started receiving an error message when starting Outlook. Outlook is slow to start and then gives me the message "There was a problem connecting to the database engine" with a retry/cancel option. Retry never works and cancel gives me another error dialog. After that I can run Outlook but can't access my business contacts. There is a knowledge base article (830318) suggesting that I add my computer's users to the BCMUsers group, but doing so does nothing to fix the issue. Further investigation revealed that the MSSQL$MICROSOFTBCM service had stopped running, but it refuses to run simply stopping immediately after I try to start it.

I am using BCM with outlook within Microsoft Office Small Business 2007. Something has happened to the format for BCM and although the contacts are still there, because the format is not accessible the history has disappeared. We don't know why, we have no error messages but we have a major problem with this. In addition - there was a link which allowed you to email to the contact that you had on the screen and this option is gone also. The screen for the regular contacts and the business contacts is now the same. Nothing has been deleted so i am assuming the info is still on the computer but we do not know how to access it. the OS is windows Vista .Can anyone help?

I have been using BCM since it was originally introduced in 2003. It was just announced that MS has elected to not make it available after Outlook 2013. For those of us using Office 365 I use cloud and desktop) that means our options are to block all future updates to Outlook or find a BCM replacement. I can put off the updates for a while but I need a long term solution. My quest is to find a suitable replacement.

For those unfamiliar with BCM the primary advantage is the ability to link all communication to a specific contact which includes everything from emails, calendars, documents, attachments, etc., in one place. By choosing a contact I simply select the history tab and everything related to that contact for the past 12 years is available in chronological order.

I have looked at several small business contact management programs available today and not one of them seem to have what I am seeking and a few sync to Outlook as opposed to being integrated as an add-on. If the right program exists that is not an add-on I will definitely look at it. I also don't want to spend $200+/yr for a bloated program.

I would have switched to Journal but MS has deprecated that starting in 2010 and there is some speculation that they will be eliminating the journal in the near future.

If anyone has suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi
I have 2013 64 bit Outlook running on Windows 8.1. I have never had Business Contact Manager, but want to install it into Outlook in order to work more effectively with Mailchimp (there's a great sync tool that connects Outlook to Mailchimp but I need to have the BCM add on first).

I download the file from microsoft, but after I agree to the terms and conditions it goes to an Adaware Alpha Ad Blocker screen. Weirdest thing. The first time it gave me an option to modify or repair my Adaware (which I didnt even know I had). Then after uninstalling Adaware it gives me a prompt to install Adaware instead, but it never gets you to the Microsoft BCM software.

On a Windows 7 32 bit Outlook computer I have, the same link (?) seems to work.

If I try to open that same 32 bit file on my windows 8.1 laptop, same adaware problem.

what the heck is going on?

there does seem to be some ambiguity on Microsoft links about whether you need to have a prior version of this software, but I've never seen a clear "start from scratch with BCM for Outlook 2013" kind of link and the gist of what I've read suggests you can use the updating from prior BCM/Outlook links / files for this purpose.

Then it says to please tell Microsoft about this problem. I have tried sending a report and not sending a report. I have tried unchecking the box. The box keeps popping up every 2 seconds and I cannot even access any commands under the help listing.

Afternoon everyone,

I've already searched for a solution to this problem on here but can't seem to find much, so I'll ask here in case someone could point me to a solution.

I've recently installed Office Professional 2003 on my dad's Vista laptop, because his previous one (XP) has just crashed.

Upon trying to install Business Contact Manager, I was prompted to install .NET Framework 1.1 (even though the laptop already has 2.0 and 3.5). The problem is that when the installation is nearly finished, I receive error messages stating that .NET Framework 1.1 can't be installed, and so I can't install BCM.

I was told that I should download SP4 to solve this problem, but upon downloading and installing, I was told that I can't continue without having BCM installed. So I'm back to square one.

Does anyone know how I can solve this problem?

Your help is much appreciated.

Thanks.

I am trying to work my way through Outlook 2007 Business Contact Manager but when I click on Show History, I get a message that reads:

"To prevent malicious code from running, one or more objects in this form were not loaded. For more information, contact your administrator."

I am trying to sort out why this is happening and, more importantly, to figure out how to fix it and desperately hope that someone is able to help me.

Please let me know if I can provide more information.
 

A:Business Contact Manager - error

I'm am not at all familira with Outlook 2007, I do know however that there is a security center or something.
In Excel you can add file locatiosna s strusted locations and then no more prompts appear for your macro's, I imagine something similar is available for Outlook 2007.
Have you tried the Help function? In most cases it puts you on the right track

I can not install Business Contact Manager--says "did not install SQL server 2008 express". I tried to install SQL Server 2008 express but got error message. I don't know anything about SQL server so all I can do is load it and unload it. I did finally get it to load without errors but I still can not install the Business Contact Manager. Any suggestions???

Hello, I test BCM on LAN (database SQLExpress placed on server) and want ask if anyone has
tried change database items directly on SQL server for delete or hide subfolders (Sales, Marketing, etc.).
I read that program can not do it, but question is if it is possible "in another way". I would use BCM only with contacts and subfolders bother me. We havent Exchange, use outlook.com for share calendars and I would like also to share Outlook contacts (for free).

I appear to have 'lost' my history in my numerous Business Contact manager contacts. The Contact is still there, but where the history is normally listed, it instead displays my current inbox contents. I'm not particularly adept at this PC stuff, but I would guess I somehow have lost the link between the contact and their history file. This appears to be a universal problem, not just with certain contacts. Anyone experienced this and/or have a solution?

I have been trying to install Business Contact Manager 2007 on my Windows 7 notebook computer. I have the add-in installed on my Vista computer and have no problem with it. I've installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled it numerous times, but I always get the same error: "An error has occurred which stops Business Contact Manager for Outlook from starting. Remove BCM for Outlook and then reinstall it. If the error recurs, click Help." I have checked extensively on the Microsoft support pages and online but all I find is recommendations to change the SQL settings, which I've checked and rechecked. But none of the recommendations has proved successful. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled Office Small Business 2007.

Any help you can give me would be appreciated.

XP Pro SP3 Office 2003
Outlook opens (after a long timeout) with a box "Business Contact Manager cannot be loaded. Action cannot be completed because BCM cannot access the database. The database is currently stopped."

XP Pro and Outlook 2003 have been on this machine for a long time. About the end of June, automatic updates installed IE8 and things started going crazy. Uninstalled IE8.
Sometime later, found that IE8 could be installed IF I turned Zone Alarm and Avast OFF then installed.

IE8 now works but now I receive the above notice everytime Outlook opens (after a long delay.) If I click on the "Rebuild Database Now" box, I receive the same message.

How can I fix this?

Please and Thanks
