Importing selected addresses from ACT 2008 to Outlook 2007

Importing selected addresses from ACT 2008 to Outlook 2007

We have a very large ACT! database - over 12,000 contacts.  I would like to do a search by sales person and import just those names into Outlook.  This person has a Verizon Palm which uses Outlook and he syncs to Outlook regularly and wants his ACT contacts available to him this way as well.  In the past I had to purchase special software for their Palms to sync - not sure if that is the case if we can bring over selected phone contacts.  Any thoughts?

Assuming you want to do this as a one-off exercise (?) you can just do a lookup for the Record Manager in ACT then File | Export to Text Delimited File. You can then elect to export your Lookup. This will produce a csv file you can then import into Outlook.

 

Make sure your PDA can sync all the contacts - some of them have problems with more than 2000 ish.

 

There is no way to synchronise ACT Contact details with Outlook unless you buy one of the ACT! Add-On products which provide this functionality.
