ACT! Data Transfer

I have ACT! version 6 on my desktop running Windows 2000. I need to transfer data to my new laptop with ACT! 2008 version 10 running Windows Vista. I would appreciate any advice on accomplishing this.

Thank you,

Re: ACT! Data Transfer

First, make sure you have a backup of the ACT! 6.0 database. Then run a Compress/Repair in ACT! and Maintenance in ACTDIAG.


Copy the files in the ACT! 6.0 database folder to the new machine. If you want attached file to be linked, you'll also need to copy them and make sure they are in the same path.


Then, from ACT! 2008 - File | Open and change the file type to ACT! 6.


For more detailed information, have a look at this ACT! Knowledge Base article -
