Hi, i'm looking into add-ins to merge data into ACT and wondering what my options are. We're looking to update certain fields when we import so not just adding new data but updating current data. Thanks

Oak!Merge is an option for importing. Here is a link.

I've used Import IT and found it very good and the support for it is excellent, I think you should be able to download a trial of it where it only imports a certain amount of records.
There are different versions of the applicatin so make sure you get te one that is right for you.

Thanks, just something I wanted to check...We have a dropdown field in ACT for unsubscribes so people can select a few options. Would Import_It be able to add additional options to the same field without overwriting what is already there?
So on ACT Joe Blogs is unsubscribed to A, B
On the spreadsheet Joe Blogs is unsubscribed to C, D
Could it import so on ACT Joe blogs is then unsubscribed to A,B,C,D ??
I hope that explains it!

of course Import|it, as a part of our datasuite is importing data into multi-dropdown fields, and you can decide if you want it to append or to replace the existing data
this link describes how this can be done.
