When a user accesses the SQL Database from BCM 2010 and wants to send a Mass E-mail to selected BCM Contacts by performing the below steps: 1. Select Contacts from the BCM Contacts Database 2. In the Ribbon go on Marketing - Mass E-mail 3. Select the content source in the new Mass Email as being Word Mail Merge 4. Select a Word file that is to be used 5. Click on Launch to send the Mass Email They encounter the following Error Message :"Business Contact Manager for Outlook could not complete your last action or actions. Please try again". Note : This issue happen with a new database as well.
When you start a Word 2010 Mail merge from BCM 2010, the Office Access Component is being used by BCM as a temporary buffer to store the Information from the SQL Database before using the data in the Word 2010 Application. When Launching the Activity of Mass Email from BCM 2010 a new Access File is being created under C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Business Contact Manager, as you can see below. If BCM does not find the component, then this indicates that wither the Microsoft Office Access Component is not registered or missing.
We were able to resolve the issue by downloading and installing the Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=13255
