I had to get a new computer (Windows XP no longer supported) and a new Act upgrade from Act2000 to Act pro17.
I've always used 5 or 6 databases in act2000.
Are they transferable by setting up a new data base in actpro17, name it the same data base and importing it with an external drive using file, Import?

I'm no expert... but I think you should convert your database (databases) to the new version V17 PRO
Before conversion... I suggest... create backups of any databases on your computer. ( And put a copy of these backups to external media - like a USB memory or external disk )
It is HIGHLY recommended that you perform maintenance on your database using the Act! Diagnostics tool for that version prior to conversion.
Make sure that you have the Administrator Username and Password - Run Maintenance and reindex the database (strongly recommended)
Ensure the database you wish to convert is stored locally on the machine which you have installed C17 PRO version. - If the database resides on another computer, you will need to back it up, then copy the backup over to the machine with ACT! V17 PRO - you can use a third-party .zip extraction utility, such as WinZip or WinRAR to unzip the backup to a temporary folder on the new computer.
