I'd like to check what contacts from an external list are already in ACT before importing

But don't think I can run a query on 350 companies at a time.  I'd be very grateful for any advice - thanks Clare

Hi Clare,

What version of Act are you running?
You can perform a duplicate check during the import of external data. The following Knowledgebase article has further details on this: http://kb.act.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/38088

If you want to do a duplicate check without any importing, you could export your Act contacts to excel from the contact list view, include your external data, then check for duplicates using features in Excel.
