Connect Business Contact Manager to Small Business Accounting

I've been using Outlook 2003 w/BCM for many months before I installed SBA
2006. I installed SBA, and couldn't figure out why there was no connection
betwen BCM and SBA. So I downloaded the SBA SP2 update. Still, no connection.

I searched the discussion group, and found this: "In Outlook tool bar select
Business Tools / Accounting tools / Setup up connection to Accounting."

Problem is, I don't have an "Accounting Tools" menu option, so there's no
way to setup a connection. Please help.

When you click "Business Tools", then you should get a pop up box.
"Accounting Tools" is the 5th item on the list.

In order for the links between SBA & BCM to work properly, it is important
that you follow all of the instructions carefully and do everything in the
right order.

The 2 data bases don't synchronize the way you would expect them to.

What's the right order?

Just to be clear... I click "Business Tools" in Outlook and there is no
"Accounting Tools" item in the list.

Here's my installation process:

1. Installed Outlook many years ago.
2. Eventually upgraded to Outlook 2003 w/BCM.
3. At some point, installed Office 2003 SP2 and BCM SP1.
4. Yesterday, installed SBA 2006 and created a company.
5. Checked Outlook today, and the "Accounting Tools" item is missing.
6. I selected the "check for updates" menu item in SBA and it brought me
directly to the "Service Pack 2 for Business Contact Manager Update and Small
Business Accounting" page (which I installed).
7. Checked Outlook 2003 w/BCM, and still no "Accounting Tools" item.

How are these procedures incorrect? Should I first install the SP1 for
BCM/SBA?

If this is still an issue:

Make sure the add-in is not disabled.
In outlook ->Help ->About MS Office Outlook ->Disabled Items
Look for BCM add-in in the list of disabled items if it's there enable it.
Happened to mine and took forever to figure out how to get the Business
tools menu to show up.
