Deleting Companies

I just imported all my contacts and companies seperately from outlook.  How can I go back and delete all the companies out of ACT!?  I want to make sure the contacts do not get deleted?

Re: Deleting Companies

Always Remember; Backup your ACT! Database Daily and before making major changes!





What version of ACT! are you using? Fairly new?

To delete your company names and not delete their associated contacts;

got to the Company side of ACT!

there is a list of companies under Company Detail 

Right mouse click on the company you wish to delete and select; Delete.

The contact records associated with the company will still be there on the Contact side of ACT!.


And that is why you should take backups before attempting major task.


As far as how to delete multiple companies at  once? Not sure

Will see what I can fiind out and get back to you.
