New York

United States

dart(at)yyy.com

------------------------------

 

etc etc

 

ALL addresses should be kept,just update the - empty- fields.

 

I need to update the address-city-country being  the same as in first address

in ACT or some Addon.

Cut and Paste,but that is too much work for 6500  different same name but different email addresses

along in my Contactdatabase

So :  -SAME EMAILaddress but different  postal-addresses.

 

To be clear  how to fill in the first  "stationroad" into the second address etc etc.

 

Thanks

William

[ Edited ]

Hey,   (see earlier Message under name Petrovlis)

 

I Like to add to my earlier message that the meaning of this is, that I am

preparing the CONTACTS for transferring to COMPANIES

but that the address  like "StationRoad 11"  not is overwritten by a blank or -

in the example given, for the same  Contact/Company.

 

So that I get the "Most detailed" address finally in my records Company

 

Should I make companies first with the empty address and then later

do another make companies of the full address records to keep

the address intact.

 

Thanks

for help

William
