....retain the links to tasks and calendar appointments. I tried exporting to

a CSV and dragging and dropping but both methods lost all the links. Is

there a way to export ALL contact fields to a CSV or a script to do that

conversion and retain any links to other objects.

Many thanks in advance,

John Buscher

You need to uninstall BCM from your system and outlook will revert back

to previous contacts DB. BCM has always been an added extra and is not

required to use Outlook in the normal course of business.

Hi John,

What you are asking for is that you want Outlook Contacts to do what

BCM Contacts does...

You want regular Outlook Contact to link task and calendar items, like

how BCM Contacts allow you to do, but that simply isn't possible.

Regular Outlook Contacts can't do those even if BCM is not installed,

and since BCM does not change Outlook Contact's behavior, adding BCM

doesn't allow Outlook Contact to start doing those extra tricks.

John
