Importing a 1400 contact database causes 735 alarms to be set.

Importing a act 2008 database into another 2008 database causes 735 alarms to be set.  Trying to clear the alarms crashes Act.

Any ideas?

You can set your system clock back a few months or years to reduce the number of alarms popping up and clear the alarms.

You likely had "cleared" only the alarms of those old activities (not the activities themselves) in the imported ACT2008 database, which re-triggered the alarms after they were imported.

The idea suggested to turn back your computer clock is a good one.

I use Premium for Workgroups 2006 -- and have imported up to 2000 contacts - without any trouble! My database is 20K contact with numerous attachments.
