Problem connecting to local BCM database

I just got a new laptop and loaded my 07 Outlook BCM software. I copied my

BCM datafiles from my old laptop to the

\doc&sett\user\locsett\appdata\ms\bcm. But when I open Outlook it can't

connect to the old data files. Now it won't even open BCM in Outlook. The

error message says "it can't access the database, login failed". When it

asks if I want to change the database configuration, and I say yes I get to

the Connect to Existing Database option and enter my computer name just fine.

But nothing is in the dropdown box for Database Name and it won't let me

type in MSSmallBusiness. Any ideas how to get this working?

Hi Brenda

I just experienced the exact same problem. New laptop transfered my bcm data

from my backup drive. I used the new program for a couple of days with no

problem. so I know the data is there. But now i can not open that existing

file.

Did you resolve your problem? Any ideas?

Thanks Lenny
