ACT Premier SQL questions

I need to be able to install ACT using SQL 2008 instead of Express.  This is supported in Premier, correct?


Also, once the table are on a server, can you run inserts to the ACT tables?  We have some external accounting and LDAP tables that we want to synch to ACT.  Curious is this can be accomplished???

Yes you can use SQL 2008 Standard... you need to manually create the ACT7 instance as per this ACT! Knowledge Base article -


No, you cannot write directly to the database. You need to do this via the ACT! Framework. See:

It could be done using an API for ACT! refer API for ACT!  Database integrity is assured as it uses the ACT! SDK.
