Act! 2000 data to Act! Essentials cloud

Hi all, and greetings from Finland

 

I tried searching google and this forum for information on how to move my existing data to the cloud. Do you have any idea how this can be done?

Hello David. I wanted to know how the database is migrsted to the new version Act! . Does the Premium version support importing from so old version?

An ACT! 2000 database can no longer be directly updated to the latest version of the ACT! program. You need to use a two step process by first converting the database to a version like ACT! 2012 v14 first and then do the final update to ACT! 20. The trial version of ACT! 2012 can be used for the intermediate conversion.

David is correct in that you need to upgrade to some Act version where the v3-6 conversion was supported. I like v11. You don't have to purchase and can use a trial. After upgrading to v11 and then v20, you can use Companionlink to move you data to Act! Essentials.

Scott - Thanks for the accolade but it was Roy who mentioned the upgrade via v11.
