Default importing new field names

I have created my own field names in Business Manager, however when I attempt
to import the data from either an MDB or Excel spreadsheet, the option to
import my field names is not there.

How can I import field names that are not in the list of fileld names
offered ?

Outlook doesn't support importing to a custom fields. You'd have to write custom code or use a third-party application. See http://www.outlookcode.com/d/customimport.htm.

And how well Business Contact Manager would support those fields is a completely matter that you might want to take up in the microsoft.public.outlook.bcm newsgroup.
