Once the database is created on the server, it can be shared with other users by following the steps in this ACT! Knowledge Base article - http://tinyurl.com/4vamub

Re: Act6 and Act 2008 running at the same time

You've received good council on this point.

 

If I can weigh in with one point before you proceed with the upgrade from 6 to 2008, be sure that the ACT 6 database has access to all attachment shorts on the network. Unlike ACT 2008, ACT6 employs pointers to file attachments, and does not imbed them intot he database itself. If you convert an ACT 6 database to 2008 on a PC without access to those shortcuts, you will lose the option during the upgrade to "convert shortcuts to attachments".

I had to complete an upgrade over again due to this oversight.

 

Good luck.
