I have a client who, believe it or not, is still using Act 4. He is finally in need of support for a second user. Will Act 2013 directly import his data? If not what does he have to do?

Yes and no. A direct conversion probably would have problems however get the ACT! 6 trial and first convert the ACT! 4 to ACT! 6 and then the ACT! 6 to 2013 should work.

Thanks. So 6 is the first version that uses the new database format? I see the is a KB article that has a live link to the trial.
What is the story on multi-user licenses? I see reference to 5 user versions.

ACT! 6 was the last version using the codebase structure. The new database structure (SQL) started with version 7.

Once you install ACT 6 on a computer, ACT 4 will ceast to operate. YOu could reinstall ACT 4 if you wanted go backwards. However, make sure you back up your database as each version of ACT is not backwards compatitable.
