Re-Post (I inadvertendly posted this question in the wrong forum)
Act Ver 10
When I imported the data for ACT 10, there are several records that were duplicated. As I have already started using the system, I would prefer not to start over again and run the duplicate checker.
To those who offer some help, thanks in advance for your support.

Thank you ... hopefully, my basic questions will come to an end soon. When converting from one system to another, we tend to look for similar methods of doing the things we are accustomed to.
Have a great week.

I want all of the detail on "Contact 1" and all of the detail on "Contact 2" to be combined into the final "Source Record: Contact 1". I don't want to loose any information and I don't want anything overridden. How do I make it happen? I have ACT! by Sage 2008 (10.0) Version 10.0.0.237, Hotfix 1.

NO can do...Merging contacts is one of the functions that Act does not do well AT ALL....the other is a merge issue too - mail merge- other posts mention Act stopping after 25 records, etc,,,.. it's not a memory problem, it's an Act problem. I had to buy an Add-On to get around it......In case someone chooses to comment back that Act has a "Scan for Duplicates" function, it does, but it's no good if you have a database of any size.....I love Act; have used it since it's first DOS version...however, the software designers have fallen asleep...please fix it so we can EASILY merge contacts, (not replace); and fix the email merge so it's functional...If anyone from Act is reading this and wants to fix it, please feel free to contact me on this post...Thanks!!!!!!!!
