BCM2007 : Parenting category from Account to Linked Contact?


G

Guzun, Alex

Hi,

please could some one of you tell me how could I implement parenting
function for category from Account to Contact within Account? Build in
function, VB script... anything

For example: I already have over 1000 bcm contacts and over 300 bcm
accounts. Deployment of BCM is based on my main SQL2005 server so users
could connect to db from anywhere if he/she is granted to. Ok,.. I'm
creating an account an give it 3 custom Category (btw is it possible to
create a custom Category list and distribute it all over my domain to use
them both in Outlook and BCM 2007?). Within an account I create a new
contact, or I create a contact and later link it to an existing account
witch containt those 3 custom category. All I want is that this newly
created contact will acquire all those category account has. Or if I'll add
another new category to account and all relevant linked contact will be
updated with those category list.

Can't imagine to do it all by hand :(

Thank you in advance

It is possible to do this through VB code. It will require familiarity
with Outlook programming. We have published a developer guide at
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...87-5736-4511-A7DE-9D8DC91D7AE2&displaylang=en
that explains how you can access and modify business contact data through
Outlook object model.
