Importing from another Act database

Importing from another Act database

I want to import data from another Act database - both database have the same structure - since one is a copy of the other.

 

I only want to import a subset of the contacts from the other database.

 

Question >>> can I create a "group" and specify that group during the import process so those contacts in that group are the only ones imported?

 

Or, is there another way of doing this?

 

Thanks

I'd do a Lookup (or use a Group>Create Lookup, which is the same thing) from the "source" database, then export the Current Lookup to the "target" database.  So, basically, you're Exporting rather than importing...
