Extracting email addresses from various areas in the database

Does anyone know how to extract data fields (specifically email addresses) from our contacts (we have 16,000) but in various areas on both the main contact page as well as in the secondary contact tab?  We're looking to do this on a monthly basis so we can update any newly collected email addresses for our email marketing campaigns.

 

Thanks ahead of time for any consideration...

Re: Extracting email addresses from various areas in the database

You can run the ACT! Export tool from the File menu, it will allow you to include whatever fields you want  from the contact records...

 

Secondary contacts, nope.  You might want to reconsider using secondary contacts and just go with using standard contacts instead.  This way you can include them in imports and exports and schedule activities, save notes and histories and all of the other things that you can do with "normal" contacts.

 

Secondary contacts take up just as much space in the database as do standard contact records...

 

If that is not an option, you will need to look into using some kind of third party import/export tool...
