Importing Goldmine data to BCM 2007


G

Guest

I have tried exporting from Goldmine to XML and then importing to Excell 2007
(for later export to BCM) but Excell said there was a problem with the Schema
file. Are there any other work arounds you can think of for this data
transfer?

Can you export from Goldmine to .CSV, Excel or Access? BCM will allow
importing from these formats.

no...only DBF, ASCII and SDF. I tried exporting to DBF and importing as a ACT
dbf file but it said I must be running ACT which I don't have. Could I try
synchronizing with my PDF and then uploading to BCM? I'll check into that.

Hi Steve,

I don't own a Goldmine copy, but after some search, I learned ASCII format
is very similar to csv (Comma Seperated Values). Can you export a ASCII
Goldmine file and open it in Notepad?
If you see something similar to this:

First Name, Last Name,... etc
John, Smith, ...
Jane, Smith, ...

then you can change the extension of ASCII file into csv and import it to
BCM.
I hope this helps!

In addition to that, you should export in Goldmine with checking "Export
GoldMine filed names that has mappings as first record".

Steve,

I asked an unanswered question to this same effect. What they are
suggesting, it seems, will not bring along your histories, etc. Unless
you use XML export, but then I dont know how you would import xml
properly in BCM to let histories come in under each contact...

I would love an answer to this. Importing contacts themselves is easy, we
need to know how to import associated histories

What I did for conatcts was to just, from GM, do the outlook sync ( one
way ) from GM over to outlook. I did the activities too. Then, after that
was done, I just dragged the contacts from outlook to BCM and it ( very
slowly ) converted them.

But my histories are still in GM.

I can get your data out of GoldMine pretty easily - each table uses
the same primary key to notate which record the information applies
to. Typically, when we move clients from one crm package to another
we perform separate export/imports from each table to it's appropriate
destination table in the new software.

Are you able to import into the history or the calendar table in your
new database?

I'm also very curious why you are moving on. I've evaluated almost
all the alternative software and have yet to find a product that
compares to a properly configured GoldMine database. Even with the
discontinuance of the dbase version support, this application will be
around for many more years. There are hundreds of people who can
support it technically....

send me a note on how to contact you and let's chat. There's several
ways to acheive an export, my recommendation will depend on your
skillset and what other software you have available (i.e. access).

Didn't Goldmine just announce they're discontinuing the Standard version and
told people they had to upgrade to their new version? ACT! did the same
thing with 6.0 version and that's why the refugees show up in this group...

Curious Lon,
Thanks.

The BCM import utility is extensible. Microsoft released documentation
a few years ago. Someone has to write a DLL to convert Goldmine data
into XML, drop the DLL in a BCM folder, and then the utility will be
able to import Goldmine databases.

If enough BCM users want to import from Goldmine, I expect this is a
business opportunity for a Goldmine specialist.

Hi,

I read your old post and would like to hire you to do an export/import from Goldmine to Outlook 2007.

Can you contact me at (e-mail address removed). Would love to get this resolved this week, thanks.
