Outlook Integration is a Microsoft product (or some kind of component associated with Microsoft)
Why must I disable a Microsoft component in Microsoft Outlook in order to remove references to a SAP product (B1)?
If I install Microsoft Outlook from scratch, the SAP product will not be a part of it.
Is there not a way to remove the SAP product from Microsoft Outlook? Once it is in there, there is no way to take it out?
I synch the Outlook with my Blackberry.
EVERY TIME I do this, I get MANY pop-ups (I would say at least 50) stating that it cannot find some kind of file(s) associated with the SAP Calendar. This is VERY frustrating.
The only thing I did was install the SAP GUI. I did not know that performing this action would cause problems with the Microsoft Outlook.
Again, I don't use SAP Calendar - AT ALL. I don't use anything in the MS Outlook for SAP - AT ALL.
If I don't use it, why should I be forced to deal with it?
The only way I can think of to keep this from happening is to disable all references to the SAP Calendar in MS Outlook. Then, maybe, I will be able to synch my Blackberry without such a big headache.
Using the SAP Toolbar in Outlook, there is an option to disable the popups.
Default Settings> General> untick the "Associate with on save" tick box and the annoying popups will disappear forever!
If you don't want it at all, you can diasble the add on from your user in SAP - a super user will need to do this.
If you have access to user login script, just added these line and it will be gone.
if fso.FileExists("C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\ADDINS\sapcalex.ecf") then
fso.DeleteFile "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\ADDINS\sapcalex.ecf"
fso.DeleteFile "C:\Documents and Settings\[CURRENT_USER]\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\extend.dat"
Or, you can remove them manually on each user.
*This will work for outlook 2003. You will need to update the folder path if you are using different version of Outlook.
