Re: Exporting Notes/History from Act! 6.0 ???

ACT! 6 has no provision for exporting the notes and history. Because the ACT! program is a multitable database with a one-to-many relationship between the contact record and the notes and history, there is no way to maintain that relationship in a flat file format like Excel. There may be a third party utility that will do the export to something like Access. You might want to check

Check for an inexpensive utility that will export ACT! Classic notes and history to an MS Access database, along with user information.


Hope that helps,
