ACT on a Network



We have been etrying to get our ACT "together" on our network. We are a three person sales force wanting to be able to use the network resource and share our individual databases. Has anyone had any success in this type of application? Thank you.

You'll need to have the Administrator of each database Share each database (Tools>Database>Share Database).  Then in Windows, ensure that the desired Windows Users have add and delete permissions to that Windows Share created.


Then you just need to have the other folks create a local .PAD file (use an existing one and rename it accordingly), changing the host and database values.  Also ensure the machine hosting the database has an exception for ACT! and SQL Server in the Windows Firewall (or if you've already disabled it you would be fine).
