Connection to multiple databases

Hi,

One of our users regularly uses two  ACT databases.  Is it possible to move between databases?  As far as I can see when the File menu is used to move to the second database the software logs out of the first database.  Ideally, he would like to be able to switch between the two databases without having to re log in every time.

Any suggestions welcome!

Re: Connection to multiple databases

You can only be logged on to one database at a time

If the databases were Published then you could have one open in Client Server mode and the other via browser. Or both using a browser. If it is Act Pro you would need two computers or a VM. You could also merge the 2 into one DB.
