export, make changes, then reimport for Act 2008

Is there a way to export contact, company, and address into another program, make updates and then reiport the data?

Not without something like itImport to do a field Merge (the Basic version would do if it's just contact or company fields)

 

What sort of changes are you trying to do?

I want to export Comany, contact, address, and phone number.  Then send out to a service that will update with the national change of address registry.

 

Then, I want to import the records back into act that have changed.  I would assume I would do a import and merge based on the contact and company field as these would not change.

Yes, you'd need itImport for that. If you add a field for Record Number, it can auto-fill it... then export with that field and use it to match the updated data.
