CRM 2011 - Enable Language error - "A validation error occurred. The value of 'categorycode' on record of type 'reportcategory' is outside the valid range."
Unhandled Exception: System.ServiceModel.FaultException`1[[Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.OrganizationServiceFault, Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35]]: A validation error occurred. The value of 'categorycode' on record of type 'reportcategory' is outside the valid range.Detail:
Luckily, another blogger had run into the same issue:
Essentially, you need to have all of the out of the box values (1-Sales, 2-Services, 3-Marketing, 4-Administrative) still in place in the categorycode option set field on the Report Related Category entity. I, too, was missing 2 out of the 4 and had to re-add Sales and Marketing. Once you add these values, save, publish and try enabling the language again. It should work this time. Also, fair warning--after you click 'Enable' to enable a language, it warns you that it could take several minutes (8 in my case) to enable the language and CRM may be unreachable to users at this time. Make sure you do this during off hours so that the system has limited down time for users.

1. Open Outlook 2010.
2. Click "New" to open a new email.
3. Click "Address Book".
4. Select "Global Address List" in the dropdown list under the Address Book heading.
5. Click the first entry and hold down the Shift button.
6. Scroll to the bottom of your GAL and select the last entry.
7. Finally, right-click anywhere in the entries list and select "Add to Contacts". Depending on the number of Contacts in your GAL, this may take a minute or two.
Then, you're all set. The GAL has been added to your Contacts in Outlook. You can now easily begin typing a person's name, group, whatever and you will be able to quickly add exactly who you need to the email. Enjoy!

It is still in the very early stages of development, but I find that it's working for me. Tanguy's blog, Dynamics CRM Tools, has a number of other useful tools that he's come up with.
Also, on a side note, you'll want to check out this band. Saw them at The Republic last night and they were great.
