Re: Open my ACT! Database 2012 Premium using SQL server installed on my computer

YOU would have to create an ACT7 instance . Here is a KB that addresses this issue.  However, since the ACT installer does this for you. it may be wasted effort.  THe SQL instance that ACT uses must be called ACT7

My ACT! and ACT7 instance are working perfectly...

 

What I want is open the database in Server with SQL Server that I have installed on my computer.

 

You know what I mean? It's like opening the database from Excel Using OLE DB 2 but I want to do by SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard

 

thanks.
