HELP! Transfer contacts from CardScan to ACT! Premium 2008

Can anyone help me?

 

I have ACT! Premium 2008 and CardScan 8.0 and I am about to pull my hair out trying to figure out how to transfer data from the CardScan to ACT!. Does anyone know how to do this or if it is even possible?

 

I tried downloading ACT! add-ons like Scan IT and Import IT and neither works with my ACT! program.

 

I really appreciate any advise you can give me!

At a minimum, you should be able to export the names from CardScan to a comma- or tab-delimited text file, with the field names in the first row.  Then you can use ACT!'s import function to import that file.  You'll use the field names in the first row to map them to corresponding fields in ACT!.  If you plan on doing this more than one time, save the map file to save you time on future imports.

 

CardScan, at one time, had direct transfer capabilities to ACT!, but I don't know whether your version of CardScan has such a transfer capability to your version of ACT!
