Due to pc errors I had to reinstall outlook 2003 and then bcm 2003.

How do I point bcm to the data bases I created before my reinstall ?

If you open Outlook and see the BCM Menu, and can select Create or Select
Database, you will get the Screen that allows you to choose or create a DB.
You can select one already created IF it exists on the machine, and in the
location the BCM install is expecting.

Data in BCM 2003 is stored in the MSDE as *.ldf and *.mdf files .The default
location is C:\Doc & Settings\<user profile>\Local Settings\Application
data\Microsoft\BCM

So you can find where you parked the DBs you created before and put them in
the right place. You did make copies, backups or burn them to CD, right?

Thanks Susan..

The files are in the right place. i.e. the Business Contact Manager
subfolder and outlook does create a new database in that folder..
the problem looks like Outlook does not recognize me? I can create a data
base, I just cannot access it ??
I tried logging off and then on again but no luck.

suggestions...

Any suggestions on why BCM can create a data base but not let me see it in
the list so I can access it ???

from a previous install... ?
