ACT beginner's help needed

Hey guys,

I'm a new user for this software and i wanted to knowwhere i can find tutorials for this software, I have searched Google but no luck so far. Here's my situation:

I have started a sales company where i usually keep my business contacts in excel. Since i do alot of cold calling, it would be a hassle to keep updating and sorting out existing companies . I want to simply just import my existing contacts into the new ACT database, and when there is a new list of contacts, i simply just input the info into my existing base. Does ACT hav the function where it auto detects and notify me when I enter  an existing business that i don't realize? Since my database will be a constant add on, I dont want to add existing businesses who I have cold call already.

I have been trying to play with the software for hours and I still can't figure out the function. Any help would be appreciated.

There are a lot of video self-pased training on the internet like:
