Create companies from contacts

I have imported 5000 contacts from Outlook, each associated with a company.

I know I can create a company from a contact, but how can I achieve this for all contacts.

 

I mean, how can I do this without paying more for additional plugins?

 

Strongly linked to this question:

http://community.act.com/t5/Sage-ACT/Creating-companies-from-your-contacts/td-p/5522

but it went off-topic so I opened a new one.

There's this idea which has been suggested more than 3 years ago, with 75+ kudos, making it THE top voted idea.

Here's an idea I'd like to share: remove the "Share your ideas" section, given that you clearly do not listen to you customers' suggestions.

Hello albergante,
Unfortunately, this is not possible without an add-on. The most popular one we know of is Company Wizard: http://www.actaddons.com/products/2005/company_wizard.asp

Are your developers aware of the existence of the 'for loop'?

It's pretty much the reason why software development was invented.

I am available for a consulence if you'd need any help on conditional statements.
