If the zip file was a backup from the ACT! program you don't need the separate DBF file. Just extract the ZIP file and try converting the database from the extract folder.

Yeah, it worked! Thanks! I have act 2011 up and running. I need to redo it and re-map some fields from Act!2000, I'll try that later in the week.

Re: Act! Pro 2011 restore files

I am trying to find out what happened to my customized layout from my earlier version of Act?

I am also missing data on user fields 11-14, and a few customized fields that I created in the earlier version.

 

I had this problem when I first installed Act! Pro 2011,and converted the data to this version. Sage support re-did the conversion and found the layout and missing data.

 

How can I find it, or what do I need to do to redo the conversion?

 

Thanks!

Are the fields with the missing data grayed and inaccessible?

user fields 11-14 are no longer on the user tab. The user tab only shows fields 1-10. I don't know where to find the cuistomized field that I created, or how to find the customized layout

If you go to Tools > Define Fields, are those fields listed? If so, you can add them back to the layout.

Also, after the database conversion, you will need to go Tools > Convert ACT! 3.0 - 6.0 Items, and convert your Layouts, Templates, etc.
