I need to recover an old ACT DB I have, but i'm not sure of which ACT version.
I have a folder with 21 different files of following extensions:
I read in these forums that The ACT! 6 DB has a set of 26 interconnected files,
But that not all 26 files are required to be able to open the database.
I seem to have the Database Definitions (DDF), Notes/History (HDB), and Binary Large Object (BLB),
However, I do NOT have a .DBF file.
Are the 21/26 files that I have still enough?
Is it possible to import my data (maybe generating the .DBF file somehow)?
And if so, which ACT version do I need for the process?

The ACT database structure since from ACT 3.0 thru ACT 6.0 had a database structure that included the files you mentioned PLUS a dbf file (which kept contact info, name address citry state zip,). Mostly likely, the database you have is a PORTION of a database from that era. HOWEVER, without a .dbf file, I'd say you CANNOT retreive a database.
