Export history from Act 2008 to Excel

Can anyone help me figure out how to export the history from ACT to Excel?  Exporting the contact list with all information is a breeze, but it left the history behind.  Thanks in advance!

Have a look at: http://blog.glcomputing.com.au/2009/07/connecting-to-act-by-sage-data.html

 

You can use excel to directly read the database via OLEDB or ODBC... or, if that's to complex, you can use the itExport add-on

Is there an updated link to that blog with instructions on using Excel to read an ACT database via OLEDB?  The link below from 2010 is no longer valid.

Are there instructions for exporting ACT history and importing back into a new copy of the database?

Hello,

 

I'm afraid I can't comment on outside blogs. Try this KB article and see if it helps: http://kb.act.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/25186/kw

 

You cannot export and import Act histories on their own in Act!
