Programmatically duplicating BCM's "Link to Record" function

I want to replicate the function of the "link to record" button (to link to a

specific BCM project) and the "billable" BCM button for appointments as they

are created.

The best clue I've found is here

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb267929.aspx, which implies I need

to create a journal item, then link that to the project, then link the

journal item to the appointment. Anyone know whether this is actually what

"Link to Record" does?

I have no idea how to set the billable property. Sounds like it should be

straightforward, but I can't find any documentation on where is it or what's

the format. Any thoughts?

I would recommend looking at the BCM database schema as a starting

point. I suspect Billable is a property of activities. And that link

to record would a record in a relationship table, linking a record in

an activity table to a record in the ContactMainTable.

Anne, I guess you might have already solved this problem. If so, I would be

grateful if you could post your solution (the code) because I have the same

problem with 'link to record'. I'm trying to link an email to a business

project programmatically but none of my solutions works.
