Read a lot on here before I tried a conversion from ACT 6.0 on a Windows XP machine to ACT!2012 Pro on a Windows 7 (64 bit) machine.
It appears that on first try EVERYTHING went fine.... layout, templates, reports... user defined fields.. all records, with ONE exception. Although I chose
"Convert attachments as files: This option will make copies of the files on your PC or network and place them in the Attachments folder."
They did not come over. I have tried to copy and paste them all to the correct folder (Documents ??).. but they are still not recognized and I get this in each instance
"Unable to convert the attachment 'C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\ACT\Document\MyFile.DOC': the file is missing."
Thanks in advance.

Thank you Mike, I read your (old - January 2010 ) company blog about conversion before I attempted.
Yes, that is where the files were located on the old machine.
Is there any way I can "point" to the files and move them so I don't have to redo the conversion for this one issue?
