2 ACT Address books in Outlook

Does anyone know a way of making outlook sync with two ACT databases?

 

If anyone has a idea please let me know.

I would pretty much guarantee you'll end up with duplicates and/or data loss.

Why would you want to?

Re: 2 ACT Address books in Outlook

we have a data base for all our customers, we also want to have a data base for suppliers. 

 

The reason we have included them in the same database is that it allows us to have different fields and layouts etc for the suppliers and it doesn't in any way confuse our current database of customers,  therefore we hopefully haven't got a chance of sending suppliers marketing material that should be going to customer only...

Much better to use one database and then use Tabs for the different fields ... otherwise, you need to check multiple places for details or even your own schedule

You might check out DesignR1's Outlook Integrator - might give you some options in that regard...
