I am in the process of converting a database from V6 to V9. I have been an ACT user since V2 so am reasonable familiar with the product. The issue I have is that I have a version 6 DBF with a number of custom fields. I have tried 2 approaches, both without success. I have tried opening the DBF from within V9 and doing both the standard and custom conversions. Neither option allows me to select the existing fields in my V6 database so that I can map them. Somehow I need to get these fields created in the new V9 database and the data converted from within my V6 database. Can someone please help me with my little drama.
