    When starting Outlook receive msg: Business Contact Manager for Outlook could
    not connect to the shared database. Do you wnat to work offline. (no)

    Then when in Outlook and click on Business Contact Manager or Accounts in
    BCM, the following message appears: The set of folders cannot be opened.
    Store not configured.

    I'm afraid I may have deleted something to cause this. SQL, MSSQL$MSMLBIZ is
    started.

    Would appreciate any assistance.

    Here's a copy of my reply to the person that provided the tip for the fix:

    When opening Outlook I would receive the message: BCM for Outllook could not
    connect to the shared database. Do you want to work offline? Outlook then
    opened just fine and when I clicked on BCM this message appeared: The set of
    folders cannot be opened. Store not configured.

    It's been like that for a couple of weeks now.

    I posted a message tonight, 12-21-07, after exhausting numerous avenues (and
    myself) in an attempt to reconnect to the BCM. Then I found your message,
    which provided some very simple steps I had not tried, and in about a minute
    and a half my problem was fixed!

    I had changed the name of my computer and so the BCM just did not know where
    to look for the data any longer. Following your advice, I went to File, Data
    File Management, Data Files, and BCM. Typed in the new computer name and all
    was well once again. That was all it needed; what a simple fix!
