Best Guide for setting up a database?

Im not the most technical person and am looking at setting up a database with ACT premium (Already purchased)


Is there a guide which is quite plain speaking for someone who is not the most technical person or am I best looking to pay for someone to set this up?


Any advice welcome

Re: Best Guide for setting up a database?

Hello Benson16,
There are instructions for creating a new database, creating contacts, and setting up other key functions in ACT!. These can be found in our Knowledgebase ( and in Feature Tours under the Help menu in ACT!. Databases are meant to be personalized for the user, so your first step would be to decide how you want you database to structured, to make easiest for you to view and access your data. You may want to seek the assistance of an ACT! Certified Consultant (ACC) in your region. See this link to find an ACC in your region:
