Adding relational database

For many years I have been using Lotus Approach (dBase) for relational databases. Can these be imported into ACT! and does ACT! allow 60 new fields, flexible (form) searches, and produce reports which can be attached or included in emails?

Yes on the new fields, yes on the searches, and yes on the reports.  Regarding your first point, if you have "extra" tables that feed off the Contact or Company data/records, get a copy of Top Line Designer, which is a killer AddOn for adding the relational aspect to ACT!

Re: Adding relational database

You'll need to export from Approach ... to CSV, Excel or something ACT! can import

Then, you'll need to create the ACT! database structure... this may or may not need an add-on depending on the types of tables/data you want to import
