Deleteing a Database

I purchased Act 6.0 in 2004, then upgraded to 2007 and transferred my database to 2007. After starting a new job in 2007 I was told I would have to use Outlook for my contacts. Havent touched the 2007 version since then, but when I installed it on my laptop the other day, i staretd with a new company and they dont care what I use. I must have put a user name and password on it. I would like to delete this old database. Is there anyway to to that. Ive tried tons of combinations that I thought I would have used, but no luck

Re: Deleteing a Database

You need to convert the database to ACT! 2007 - yes, to a new database.

 

Then you can merge it into your main database and delete the converted one
